I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
So it took me three times to start this book, I am not sure why but the first two times it just did not capture my attention right off the bat.
Once I started reading it though I was interested to see where it was going to go. You see I have never read anything with virtual reality and I can honestly say it is scary if it was to ever happen, especially when a company or government can see your every move.
The world we are in, in this book is where everything has become extinct it started with the bees and went from there. Now the world that everyone lives in is being recorded and monitored your life is no longer your own. You are to live within a certain area as the outlands are not safe for anyone.
We follow Kender as she goes to uncover the truth with Hexagon and what happened to her fiancee Andrew. It seems that Hexagon doesn't like anyone going behind their back and they will stop at nothing to get rid of that person and all who is around them.
Kender goes into "Nirvana" when the unthinkable happens to Andrew, so she can feel closer to him because she doesn't believe him to be gone exactly. But who is leaving her clues? Is it Andrew or someone else? Who can she trust because there seems to be more snakes in the grass than before as it seems her every move is being followed. Someone wants what she finds and will stop at nothing to get it.
Now Nirvana is the place of virtual reality but it is always being monitored you can go anywhere you want but if Hexagon wants they can red light you and you are gone forever.
I really liked the cliffhanger as it shows that there is more to the story than just bringing back the bees I think I would read book two to see if Kender can find who she is looking for and what else she will uncover.
Now Kender as a character she was okay. I didn't click with her in anyway, and I found her to be acting too weird when it came to Andrew and saying he is not dead it was like she was almost trying to hard.
I really liked the friendship between Kender and Serge though at times I wondered if he was on her side or not. When Kender saw the video that was left for her via Serge my heart broke a little.
