Four friends celebrate a stag weekend at Virtual Insanity, a cutting-edge virtual reality company.
Built on a disused military research facility, the futuristic headsets scan existing landscapes and re-imagines them with post-apocalyptic environments.
They battle zombies, overcome obstacles, and fight to stay alive.
But when one member of the team falls off the grid, he uncovers a secret even the game’s designers aren’t aware of.
Virtual Insanity by Charlie Dalton. Kindle novella. Published June 2019. I received a free advanced reader copy from the author in exchange for a positive review.
Charlie has put out several bite sized novellas lately that have been a true blast to read. Virtual Insanity was no different. And just like with the other novellas, I wished that this one had been a full length book! It was just too much fun to say good bye so soon! You could easily read this in one sitting. One or two hours, tops. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
If you are thinking this will be just a typical zombie plot, you are very much mistaken. I can’t say too much, though, I don’t want to spoil the surprise. I will say this, the VR game sounds so epic! It successfully gets you adrenaline pumping as you put yourself in the shoes of the characters playing the game. there is also plenty of anticipation as you wait to see what goes wrong. You know it’s coming… you just don’t know what or when it will be! They are playing in an abandoned military facility. That is never, EVER a good thing!!
This was super entertaining. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read by this author so far. Charlie Dalton is a name I’m definitely going to keep my eye on.
