Starter Zone (The Revelation Chronicles, #1) - Chris Pavesic

4 Stars!

When hydrologists inscribe the consciousness of a human mind onto a single drop of water, a Revelation sweeps the land. The wealthy race to upload their minds into self-contained virtual realities nicknamed Aquariums. In these containers people achieve every hope, dream, and desire. But governments wage war for control of the technology. Terrorist attacks cause massive destruction. The Aquariums fail.  Inscribed human minds leech into the water cycle, wreaking havoc.

Street gangs rule the cities in the three years since the fall of civilization. Sixteen-year-old Cami and her younger sister Alby struggle to survive. Every drop of untreated water puts their lives in peril. Caught and imprisoned by soldiers who plan to sell them into slavery, Cami will do anything to escape and rescue her sister. Even if it means leaving the real word for a life in the realms, a new game-like reality created by the hydrologists for the chosen few.

But life in the realms isn’t as simple as it seems. Magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as the sisters navigate their new surroundings. And they encounter more dangerous enemies than any they faced in the real world.

Time to play the game.

This started out post-apocalypse which I loved, simply because I love those kinds of books, then turned fantasy which I don't usually read - but surprisingly I still liked it! Teenage Cami and her younger sister end up having to go into a virtual game. I have recently learned that there is a name for this kind of book - LitRPG (Literary Role Playing Game) I have never read anything like this and had never even heard of this. 
But... It was fun! I very quickly became addicted.

There was good character development with lots of little adventures and a load of fun! A quick easy read. Even though this is not my typical type of book I would like to read more of the series.
Heck! - I want to be in the book! I want to play "the game" it sounds like fun!

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Kate Tilton's Book Bloggers and the author Thank You!!
