The second book by YouTube star Joe Sugg, Username: Regenerated picks up after the events of Username: Evie. In it, Evie is coming to terms with e.scape’s reboot and the loss of avatar Lionel. She is desperate to gain access to the virtual reality again and pretends to have feelings for real-world Lionel so he’ll fix the program. When he discovers that she’s using him, real-world Lionel deletes e.scape in a fit of anger. Immediately regretting what he’s done, he finds an older version, reboots it, and inadvertently brings an earlier virtual reality back to life. Meanwhile, in the e.scape, avatar Lionel befriends one of the brutes. After the reboot, the brute finds a computer that allows him to escape to the real world. Once he’s gone, avatar Lionel quickly discovers what happened and goes after his friend. The two stories become intertwined with old friends reunited, new dangers faced, and Evie confronting a part of her past that she thought was long gone.
