It follows a young student in a fictional city of Skyfall after being kicked out of their homeland. The first chapter leaps right in and I was confused for a few pages until things were made clear. In this city this young man must make friends and learn the ways of these city folk. There is a game called friction which is the most popular thing in Skyfall. It is a virtual world that immerses the player in a suspended pod to link their body up to an avatar. They can then trek through different worlds and compete.
The book is full of plot twists some that are so page turning you may just lose track of time completely as you dont want to set the book down. You have your bad guys and good guys but its well put together with great story telling. I laughed, and I even teared up in parts, I consider this a great read and for FREE I think everyone should give it a try!
Once we get to the second chapter, though, the story really just TAKES OFF!
There are so many little subplots/subnotes in this story. I know several readers find that distracting, my mind finds it fascinating! I loved all the digs, and jabs, and subtle things that Mr. Evans put into this story that made it whole. The civilization felt complete and real. There was thought applied to the histories and the setting. Now, granted, it was a little Harry Potter-ish, but just a little. I think that was used as a basis for the world building efforts and you could see the outlines. However, the finish was brilliant. At least in mind, it was!
I loved the characters! I loved the setting! I loved the plot! I loved all the little nuances in the narrative! I even loved the simplistic writing style. I, literally, could not put this book down! Well, after chapter 2. Chapter 1 was a bit...sticky and disjointed.
Should you read this book? For fracks' sake YES!!! Just don't judge the story by the first chapter! This is a definite MUST READ!
I came across this as a free kindle download not knowing anything about the book, or the author, and was pleasantly surprised with the story. It's also an easy read, geared for young adults (which I'm not, but) I was able to read through the entire book in two days
I did find about the first half of the book to be a bit slow-paced and choppy at times, but will say much of that backstory becomes very relevant to the events in the later half of the book and to understand the main character, Seckry. There are a ton of twists and revelations that will keep you reading to find out how all the puzzle pieces fit together.
In the end I am definitely interested to read the next book(s) in the series.
