Epic and Saga are the first 2 books in the Epic Trilogy by Conor Kostick.
Edda is the 3rd book but it came out a lot later and it has a totally different theme to it than the other 2 so I actually did not know it even existed until about 5 minutes ago.
So Epic and Saga have a theme similar to something like SAO or dot hack. Basically people get trapped in a virtual reality and can not get out. Lots of action. And lots of gaming type things that happen. Quests, treasure, raids. It is pretty damn cool. I loved the books when I first read them.
Discuss. I definitely recommend Epic and Saga.
