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!!!
This review has been voluntarily written.
Esa awakens is a strange building with no memory of who she is or where she came from. The only thing she has is a need to find other people. She sees other buildings, Silo, like her own on other islands. She chooses one and as she swims her island disappears. When Esa arrives she does find another woman, Myco, but an overwhelming need to fight takes over both of them. The fight ends with the woman dying until she awakens in the Silo she came from and even stranger their need to fight doesn't reaper. The two band together to find out what is happening where they are and what is happening to them.
This is only the beginning as they struggle to solve the mystery of their past as they gain new friends along the way. I was initially a little bit confused about what was happening, but once it became clear they were in a game world everything clicked and took off. This was a fascinating look into the game world and the story has only begun.
I voluntarily received and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
Final Rating: 5 Stars
