Book Description

A post-apocalyptic/dystopian science fiction thriller and #1 Bestseller in British Horror.

When the Rixon Corporation released New Reality, a fully immersive, five-dimensional entertainment experience, everyone logged on---everyone except Jake and Tom.

As the population gave in to the ultimate experience, it didn’t take long for the world to crumble into ruin.

Facing the wrath of Rixon and starvation, the pair embark on a fight for survival and freedom.

What the reviewers say:

I started this book late last night and lost quite a bit of sleep because it was just too good to put down.

RUN and buy this NOW!!

Bloody brilliant.

I would highly recommend New Reality: Truth, it kept me hooked until the last page.

4.0 out of 5 stars ~~Those darn headsets~~ June 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Imagine having an entertainment system that would stimulate all of your senses. Would this be something good or bad for you?

That is the backdrop for this book. We follow the dismal lives of Tom and Jake who are in Birmingham. The live in the shadows of the Rixon Tower and always feel as though they are being watched. Their daily lives consist of scavenging for scraps of food and any type of liquid available.

It has been 4 years that they have been in this state of attempting to survive. They also believe that they are the only two that never owned the headsets. There are bots after them as well as some type of a monster that is intent on keeping track of them...

Found it to be an intriguing read with the ending a complete surprise to me.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Virtually Real October 19, 2014
By Kyra
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Viscerally unpleasant imagery abounds in this novel, making it ideal for lovers of horror. I appreciate when a book takes me outside my comfort zone, and this book does that. The way the author describes physical sensations is so spot on, it made me feel like I was in a virtual world of my own, albeit a much more unpleasant one that the world inside the VR helmets. Grit your teeth and prepare for an intriguing adventure (also, set some time aside because this is not a book you walk away from half-through)

5.0 out of 5 stars What IS Reality, Anyway? August 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started this book late last night and lost quite a bit of sleep because it was just too good to put down. I was halfway through it before I finally forced myself to stop and go to sleep. I eagerly read the second half as soon as I had a chance today.

First of all, I want to say that Michael Robertson is a talented writer. There are certain styles of writing that appeal to me more than others and Robertson's style definitely appeals. He is insightful and emotionally engaging with his use of words. His main character, Jake, has a ton of depth and I couldn't help but find myself wrapped up in his story.

When I finished reading A New Reality: Truth, it occurred to me that part of the reason I like it so much is because it reminds me of my favorite childhood show: The Twilight Zone. I felt like child again, engrossed in a creepy story, thinking I had it figured out, only to find that I was wrong, and the ending was even creepier and better than I could have imagined. In my world, that is a great book!

There is a little bit of repetition when it comes to certain phrases and dialogue in the story, but it is infrequent and minor enough that it does not take away from the overall awesomeness of the book.

I highly recommend New Reality: Truth for readers who enjoy science fiction and dystopian stories. I also recommend it to anyone who wants a thought-provoking, creepy, well-written book to get lost in for a while.

I will definitely be reading more from this author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing post apocalyptic start to a series. February 2, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
Having read Crash and Crash 2 by Michael Robertson, I was excited to learn that he had a New Reality series as well. I was offered the opportunity to read New Reality: Truth in exchange for an honest review. I jumped at the opportunity.

This book was a bit of a surprise for me. It does takes place in a post apocalyptic earth, a bit similar to the Crash books. In these books, the devastation is far greater with most structures completely destroyed and the atmosphere is toxic. We have only two characters that are on a quest to find and save the son of one of them. Through this journey, they are scrounging for food and drink - usually unsuccessfully. The story has the duo travelling, and travelling, and travelling toward the one large building they can see in the distance. They don't get any closer than when they started. This story is not so much about character development. It is about setting up a baseline story for the series. And a good baseline it is.

There is a third entity in the story with the only personalization is that it is "she". That part is important and you will understand that in New Reality 2. If you enjoy this genre, you will really want to pick up the New Realty series.

5.0 out of 5 stars RUN and BUY this now!!!!! July 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
RUN and buy this NOW!! I don't wish to say a whole lot about the book as I never give spoilers. I don't like them so never do it. This is a whole new take on gaming. ( That is all I will say ) Made me stay up way past my bedtime as I could not stop reading. It is dark, deep, thought provoking and to me, fun at times. I did not see the end coming. I generally do but with this author I did not. Buy this, sit down and begin reading. We will wait, shouldn't take long for you to finish and and say OMG, that was GREAT!

4.0 out of 5 stars What is reality? October 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The world building in this story is so visual and totally believable, its like a movie right before your eyes. The characters are not built up as in a lot of other stories. Most of the story deals with traveling through the landscape they find themselves in and trying to survive. I could not guess the ending, although maybe I should have been able to. There is a bit of repetition with the dialogue between the two main characters, but there is also a depth of positive emotions between them too. What is reality? Suspenseful, on the edge of your seat, do not miss this one! Recommend to any and all. I received this free from the author for an honest review.
