Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

In this riveting story of professional athleticism, players make their names known in the virtual arena rather than the stadium. Their challenges are far from typical: they face opponents and fight in the virtual world with swords and medieval fervor and then slam back into reality. Death feels real, pain echoes even after they unplug, and these athletes cope in the most dangerous of ways. Kali must lead her team to redemption in the arena following a surprising and devastating loss but also keep them alive as they navigate the seedier side of professional gaming after a teammate dies. This title is mystifyingly slow; though it kicks off with fast-paced action, it drags until the "second act." Readers will sympathize with Kali's struggles with personal loss, and as the story progresses and new characters are introduced, this quickly becomes an addictive read. VERDICT Those who make it through the lengthy exposition will delight in this real-world gaming tale that blends sports, video games, friendship, and just a dash of dystopia.—Ashley Prior, Lincoln Public Library, RI

Review

“A stunning debut, fast-paced, action-packed, with an interesting romance and a compelling yet flawed heroine…Read this book. You haven’t read anything quite like it and you don’t want to miss it.”—Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestselling author
 
“Blistering action right from the first page, but it’s Jennings’ brilliant characters that kept me logged in to Arena. A thrilling debut.”—Jason M. Hough, New York Times bestselling author
 
“Think Hunger Games meets Ready Player One. Arena is serious nerdcore entertainment. Gamers, get ready to plug in!”—Chloe Neill, New York Times bestselling author
 
“Depicting the action and excitement of virtual gaming that made Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One such a hit...Readers seeking more fast-paced sf about virtual reality will be pleased.”—Library Journal
 
“A nuanced and complex novel with a strong, imperfect heroine and a different approach to the ‘rebel in a dystopian society’ trope.”—RT Book Reviews
 
“With action-packed battle sequences and older computer-game references, [Arena] will appeal to fans of science fiction like Ernest Cline’s Armada.”—Booklist
