Felix and Erica are beta testers for a new virtual reality game. As hard-core gamers, they have been training for this for years. They know what to do, how to level up, and how to create a fun gaming atmosphere. They plug in and begin the experience, meeting friend and foe - and each other. Their relationship gets off to a rocky start. Soon they have to decide whether or not to trust one another. Not all is as it seems in this virtual reality world...
This book is a really great exploration of what gamers have been dreaming of for years - virtual reality! The imagery was really well done. I loved how the author added the details about gameplay - the feel of the weapons, the difficulty of the quests, and the interaction with both real and computerized characters. I play World of Warcraft, and my husband and I have often talked about how much of an amazing experience VR would be. One of the first things that really struck me was that Erica was able to immerse herself in the game and just wail on some creepy, awful guys who were harassing her. It was really fun to watch her be someone else (at times, kind of a jerk to Felix) because it was clear that the game was her escape. Her life, as readers come to find out, was a not pleasant one.
The evolution of Felix and Erica's relationship was awesome to watch.
Thank you for this fun VR book, Zoe Adams!
As technology progresses, many of us have heard of Virtual Reality or VR, a new way of playing a game where you feel that you are immersed in the game. Kamada-kun have created a brand-new game VRES a fantasy game, that no other game could compare to. Like all new games they required BETA testers, Felix and Erica both big gaming enthusiast both volunteer for an experience that would change their lives.
As the main character were gamers, they both had that need to conquer and win. Playing online you can be who you want to be and with Erica and Felix they were completely different. Felix in the real world was unemployed and a bit down in life and in the virtual world he was confident and adept with his fighting skills, but in both worlds, he was a really nice guy. Erica was in a nasty relationship in the real world and had lost all confidence, but when she put on that headset, she was like a woman possessed. Excellent blade skills, played dirty to get what she wanted. That was until she ran into Felix.
As a lover of gaming the minor details in the story really sold it to me. The problem of not having enough gold to upgrade your weapons, needing a health or stamina boost and it did have a touch of Skyrim about it. Throughout the story you follow the development of Erica and Felix’s relationship. This is a standalone story and it is well written, as it is only 150 pages I did read it in one sitting. I loved the idea that much of the story was set in the game.
I cannot wait to see where this author will take us next.
