Nirvana: Nirvana Series Book One by J.R. Stewart
The world as we know it has gone. First the bees died. Then the crops and trees started to die. Soon the earth was almost unlivable. For those with skills, there were jobs. And to make you feel better, you could visit Nirvana. It’s a virtual world where you can still visit your favorite places or create new fantasies to make you happier.
Blue Moon Publishers and Net Galley gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you). It will be published November 10th.
Kenders is in love with Andrew. They’re engaged, they treasure their time together and they have their own codes. With all the cameras recording them and their conversations, they’ve learned a few places they can talk openly and take advantage of it.
When she’s told that Andrew has been killed in a lab explosion, she knows it can’t be true. He didn’t work with anything that could explode. The body she saw was badly burned and it resembled him, but she couldn’t believe it was true. Everyone else tells her he’s gone. She’s not sure.
When she finds him in Nirvana and the script of her memory changes just a bit, she’s sure he’s still alive. But how to find him?
This is a story of sadistic tendencies and total control by a corporation. Trying to fight big brother doesn’t go well. People die along the way, people she cares about. But she still tries to hunt for her love.
This story was rewritten by the author and this edition is much, much better than the original. I read both and this one flows well, offers you explanations you need, and is even very believable. I feel bad for the good characters that died. The ending is a cliff hanger and you’ll want to read the next in the series. The fight isn’t over yet…
