The Waking of Grey Grimm is a new book by Sci Fi Author Tony Bertauski that explores the concepts of “awareness leaping” which can be described as sensory deprivation to the point of hallucination and astral projection.
After the “Foreverland incident”, awareness leaping was banned from society with the use of mechanisms to leap becoming a felony charge. Clandestine organizations remain that will train eager participants to enter the Maze for a price. Once inserted into the maze, the participants are engaged in a myriad of worlds and situations where death is of no consequence and morals very rarely have a place. Win or lose, those who survive the game are richly rewarded but are forever changed with many finding it difficult to distinguish real from imagined.
Grey Grimm finds himself at the end of a needle inserted into his frontal lobe and transported to the Maze. When his mom Sunny finds him, she seeks out the help of someone who she only knows as Micah. When he appears to be unreachable, she returns home only to find her son missing. The longer Sunny searches for her lost son, the stranger things become. With all avenues exhausted, Sunny must rely on her own senses and resources to locate and rescue her Grey.
This story is one of those huge mind freaks that you will most likely have to read a few times to get all the nuances straight. I loved the way that the story follows Henk, Hunter, Sunny, and Grey at various stages of the storyline that takes Grey into the Maze. With each new snippet in time, a new clue is revealed to piece together the ultimate puzzle. Each person’s perspective is told from their point of view and their own unique voice. From Grey and Rachel’s typical teenage banter and Hunter’s Bogartesque noir to Sunny’s mounting desperation as she searches for her son, Grey Grimm is a complex tale that will leave the reader guessing until the end and maybe beyond.
Having not yet read the Foreverland series, also by Bertauski I didn’t feel that this hindered my enjoyment of Grey in the slightest. If anything, it made me curious to read that series as well. It has been in my “to read” pile for some time now but after reading “The Waking of Grey Grimm”, I’m bumping them up on the list. If you are intrigued by the possibilities and possible consequences of virtual realities, The Waking of Grey Grimm will not disappoint.
As I passed the fifty percent mark in the story I had to read more slowly. I had to nibble instead of taking huge bites. Because I knew where the story was going, but I did not want it to end.
Tony Bertauski has fed my reading OCD beast. Because now I'm going to have to read every other book and short story he has written. Just as I did when I discovered Philip K. Dick.
While reading “Maze: The Waking of Grey Grimm” by Tony Bertauski, those lyrics kept running through my head; and boy do they fit.
I became interested in Tony’s work when I saw a book called “Claus: Legend of the Fat Man”. Being a sucker for all things Christmas, especially Santa, I bought the book on a whim. Even more surprising was that it was an ebook – and if you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know how much I despise ebooks. I was hooked.
Obviously, when the opportunity to read an ARC of Tony’s latest, I jumped at the chance (even if it didn’t revolve around Christmas). I’m glad I did. Tony takes a Matrix-like theme and turns it into something amazing – the love of a mother for her son, and the lengths she will go to “save” him.
From the very first chapter, Tony gets his hooks into you and keeps you guessing throughout the story. His character and plot development are spot on, with just the right amount of description, but not an over-bearing amount.
A brief overview – with no spoilers. There’s a new “game” in town called The Maze. In the simplest of terms (to avoid spoilers), players jump into an alternate reality in hope of winning wealth. But there’s a catch: few escape with their sanity, or memories, intact. It’s because of this that The Maze is highly illegal. Players put up their life savings for a chance to give their families a better life, should they win. Grey finds his way into The Maze, while his mother tries to get him out. What’s real, what’s imaginary, and what’s fabricated by “the associates”? That’s the question you’ll be asking throughout the book.
Tony has a number of books revolving around The Maze and Foreverland. Sadly, I haven’t read any of them and now know what I am missing. I’ll be checking them out immediately. You should too.
