If you liked ‘Ready Player One’, our new Book of the Week – Solaversia – is sure to hit all the right buttons.
SOLARVERSIA: THE YEAR LONG GAME
By: Toby Downton
Solarversia is the story of an epic year-long game played by 100 million people inside a virtual world modelled on the real world Solar System. Given three lives, three vehicles, and told to master The Science of Solarversia to stand a chance of winning, players compete for the £10m grand prize, and the chance to help design the next game, starting in 2024.
Nova Negrahnu and her friends Burner and Sushi cannot wait to start playing. But when an international terrorist organisation sets its sights on the game and its creator, Nova finds her life turned upside down, as the line between simulation and reality blurs. Can she navigate between playing the game, coping with all the issues an eighteen-year-old girl faces and avoid the very real and present danger mounting outside Solaversia?
There’s been a few books based on the idea of a virtual reality gameworld since Ernest Cline’s ‘Ready Player One’ hit. ‘Solaversia’ is the first we’ve read that we can recommend.
An epic story, epicly told.
