Book Description

All eighteen-year-old Emily Heath wants before college is a summer vacation at the beach. Instead she's in Washington D.C. at the height of tourist season, looking for an excuse to leave early.

She gets one in the worst way possible; a nuclear bomb destroys a large section of the capital.

Emily wakes up in the hospital. She's received a massive dose of radiation, her immune system is failing, and she's going to die unless she accepts Colonel Richard Logner's bargain: He has a cure, but in return she must agree to participate in a military experiment. The treatment's side effects include partial memory loss, but Emily wants to live. She accepts his offer and the consequences.

At a military base, Emily joins others like her for team-based combat on a virtual reality battlefield. But this is no video game. When she's killed in the simulation, she feels all the agony of dying, and the near impossible odds of winning guarantee her a nightly routine of pain.

Only one experiment participant understands how to achieve victory—a young man named Matt—but his solo approach leaves the rest of his squad to die in the virtual world. After Matt tells Emily he can help her, she must decide whether to trust a person no one else does—and most likely sentence her teammates to the nightly anguish—or she can keep trying to win on her own and face the unspeakable torment over, and over, and over.

But even success may not be enough to stop Emily from wondering if she should have chosen death back at the hospital.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected delight 20 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this book when it was free, however I will be waiting with anticipation for the author's next book. Although initially I didn't take to it with an annoying amount of very American terms, soon the concept of the book really took over. For the first time in a long time I found myself reading for several hours at a time. I went say much as I wouldn't want to spoil it however I highly recommend this book, it's original and exciting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, a really great read! 14 Jan. 2015

I really loved this book, it had me hooked and reading well into the late hours of the night. The plot sounded interesting and the book was free so I bought it, still uncertain as to whether I would actually enjoy the book. However, the book passed all my expectations and was extremely gripping. The plot is really unique and the writing had a lovely quality to it that made you feel involved with the character's emotions and struggles. It is really hard to get across how many elements this book had, but it was so packed out with plot twists and had a really mysterious air to it that made it almost dreamlike(in a good way). Would definitely recommend this book, and have described it to my friend who was really intrigued by it also, is such a good book and have already read the next one also!

4.0 out of 5 stars Would make for a great 'book club' discussion... 23 Aug. 2013
By Emma
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The concepts in this book are thought provoking and the events always left me wondering what was going to happen next and who was the bad guy/girl. As it turns out I'm still not sure - the ending was quite confusing and left me wondering what was real and what wasn't - that's not a bad thing though (think of the film Inception). I discussed the ending of this book with a friend who had also read it and the pair of us ended up more confused so I think this book would be perfect for a book club...

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, a cracking read 9 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like unusual stories, romance, friendship, medical and science fiction, and this has it all. The premise of a government run underground training facility for young people who have accidentally received a lethal dose of radiation combines these topics for me. Several questions remain unanswered, but do not spoil the story. I recommend Walking Ghost Phase for oliday reading or bedtime relaxation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly enjoyable. 1 Aug. 2013
By Carol A
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this when it was free and had it sitting in my "kindle library" for a while. It didn't jump out at me as something I would usually read but after now finishing it I feel it deserves a review (I VERY rarely write reviews of the books I read)!
It was great, really different from the usual books you get free on here and it was a book that I really did want to just keep on reading to find out what happens but then was disappointed when I finished as enjoyed it so much.
Now thinking I may actually "pay out" for the sequel!
