So first of all, I don't think the synopsis of the book makes it justice. I mean, the book is completly related to a game world, but the characters are far from being just avatars.
In this thrilling story, sentient avatar Esa wakes up in a silo with no memories of who she is or where she is. However, she decides to look for answers, and in the way, she meets other sentient avatars: a girl named Myco, and two boys, Lucas and Rohan. All of them are trapped in a game world filled with fights and death, but they want to know why they are there, why they are being persecuted and why they feel just like human being.
To get the answers they want, they need to explore the world they are living in, all at the same time while trying to avoid the "Grip", a force greater than their will that makes them act just like reckless avatars.
If you enjoy reading about dystopian worlds with fun characters and endless adventure, you should defenitely give this book a try!
Esa wakes in a dark cement silo with no memory of who she is or how she got there. It doesn’t take long to realize the world she’s in is not what it seems when her body is taken over by an unknown presence and she’s forced to fight.
She meets two strangers that reveal an unbelievable truth—Esa is a sentient avatar in a game world.
Esa knows she has to level-up to find answers, but in an expansive, dystopian world of kill or be killed, is what she seeks worth the risk?
Immerse yourself into this exciting new young adult, LitRPG / Gamelit, sci-fi series that asks the question—what if the avatars became self-aware?
I have to say one thing first off, this cover is beautiful!!
Also, this book is one of the best descriptive books I have ever had the privilege of reading. It was as if you were right there. It was a different concept for a book, but with the amount of description and going on a journey with someone waking up who basically has amensia, you walk through the whole book with her. The book is written very well. It is also just a good book to read, it is interesting, exciting, fast paced. It does have a few twists and turns, especially at the end that you don't expect and a slight cliff hanger, which of course means I cannot wait to get the next book!!!

I voluntarily received and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
Final Rating: 5 Stars
Imagine waking in cement room--no memories, no recollection of how you got there--and your only means of escape is to swim across the ocean. For Esa, this is her beginning. But it's not her *real* beginning. Her origins are just as unclear to her as the game world she finds herself in. Is she AI? Is she human? What is she?
"I was scared at first, and then I understood what I needed to do."
With the help of three unlikely friends, Esa sets out on a quest for salvation. She doesn't know what she is being saved from, only that she needs answers.
AVATARS RISING is a thrilling story. The unraveling mystery is perfectly paced and the characters are fun and memorable. Often GameLit is heavy on mechanics and stats and, while those genre elements exist, they don't slog down the pace. What I enjoyed most about this story is how the focus remained on the characters at all times and their harrowing adventures to self-discovery. The boss battles were intense and the story even made me tear up and shout-out in anger.
"I shake off the feeling and allow myself to wade in the calming warmth that settles in my core."
Yes, I do because book two is coming and I need answers! . . . just like Esa.
Highly recommended. 5-stars.
What if you were BORN inside the game...not playing the game but LIVING inside the game? Aware that you are code, and it's a game?
That is the premise of this fast-paced YA novel.
It's not a traditional LitRPG novel, it's something different. I really enjoyed it!
Be aware it does end on a cliffhanger.
