~*~ Review ~*~ Nirvana By J.R. Stewart

Nirvana (Nirvana #1)

Source: Goodreads

When the real world is emptied of all that you love, how can you keep yourself from dependence on the virtual?

Animal activist and punk rock star Larissa Kenders lives in a dystopian world where the real and the virtual intermingle. After the disappearance of her soulmate, Andrew, Kenders finds solace by escaping to Nirvana, a virtual world controlled by Hexagon. In Nirvana, anyone’s deepest desires may be realized – even visits with Andrew.

Although Kenders knows that this version of Andrew is virtual, when he asks for her assistance revealing Hexagon’s dark secret, she cannot help but comply. Soon after, Kenders and her closest allies find themselves in a battle with Hexagon, the very institution they have been taught to trust. After uncovering much more than she expected, Kenders’ biggest challenge is determining what is real – and what is virtual.

Nirvana is a fast-paced, page-turning young adult novel combining elements of science fiction, mystery, and romance. Part of a trilogy, this book introduces readers to a young woman who refuses to give up on the man she loves, even if it means taking on an entire government to do so.

My Review:
Firstly I would like to than the lovely author and NetGalley for kindly providing me with a copy to read and review.
This is my first time reading anything by JR Stewart 🙂 I’m looking forward to reading more of her work.
I will be honest in saying I found it a little difficult to get into this, but I always prevail with a book and I always finish it.
By the end I did enjoy this story and loved the characters.
Kenders is the main character, she’s hell bent on a mission to find out the truth of her partner, Andrew’s, whereabouts as he seems to have made a disappearing act….and nobody seems to know where….or do they?
Who should she trust?
Who doesn’t have ulterior motives?
Andrew is a programmer working for Hexagon.
His main job is working on Nirvana, a virtual reality controlled by Hexagon.
I loved the idea of creating technology that involves a virtual reality for people to escape to.
It was hard to tell who is good and who is evil.
I enjoyed the middle to the cliffhanger at the end, so all in all this makes me want to read the next instalment.
