SERIES DESCRIPTION:

Six young tech-savvy hackers and coders break into Long Island's Gameland, a once-militarized wasteland that has been abandoned to the Infected Undead for over a decade. Now reclaimed by a megalithic corporation with deep ties to the government, Gameland has been turned into live-action virtual reality survival gaming arcade. But while breaking into The Game is a lot easier than they could ever have imagined, breaking back out ends up being one hell of a killer.

Editorial Reviews

Rabid Reader's Reviews - Lori Parker
This book is played out like a tv show. Each episodes ends on a cliff hanger much like the tv show the Walking Dead or Lost. The next episode has a little backstory of the previous one and then picks up where the story arc left off. It makes for a fast paced, interesting read. Without annoying commericials to boot. I'll take it!
The writing was great. You are drawn in and invested in the character Jessie from almost the get go.
Amazon - David Dalton
This series is getting very interesting. These episodes feature a dark future, a big-brother type goverment like in 1984, zombies under goverment control (or are they?) and a strange game that hooks the masses.
Amazon - T. Jeffries
I've read the first three chapters and am having a great time. I like the characters and the fact that I've been "creeped out" a lot. I am really excited to download the next section.
