This is a terrific read, set partly in a video game that plays sometimes disturbingly like a real world, and a Sophomore's life that increasingly resembles a video game world.
It's lively, fun and reads a bit like William Gibson has got really into Dark Souls. I'm hooked, and you probably will be too.

Having grown up reading a lot of Sci-fi and Fantasy, I've got turned off by hackneyed plots and risible dialogue and so only dip back in based on friends' recommendations. This was absolutely worth it. The brilliant and limpid prose of the best literary fiction, insightful characterisation that rings true, combined with the genuinely engaging plotting of genre fiction. Carmichael is building a hell of a series if the first instalment is anything to go by. By far the best thing I've read in months. Strongly recommend.

One of those books that once you're in, you're in deep. Emmy - part high school student desperate to retain a 9.5 average, part game-queen - gets involved in something that just doesn't seem right. I mean, really doesn't seem right. A truly brilliant first installment, I can't wait for what's next..
