Disclaimer:I received a free soft copy of the book from the author for an honest review.
This book is a serial. Serials are stories published in episodes. This serial currently contains one episode out of an estimated six total episodes, and new episodes will be published every three weeks.
How far would a person be willing to go to escape an inevitable death? Laney Grey is about to find out.After battling a terminal illness for the last two years, Laney's body is about to give out. Facing the reality of her mortality alone, she's not ready to give up but sees no other choice. Then she receives an job offer that will pay her in the most priceless currency imaginable if she completes her assignments: a cure.
Laney knows that her decision to accept will change her life forever, and she might be asked to do things that the old Laney would never have considered doing. The stakes couldn't be higher, but she rolls the dice and takes the risk anyway because, in the end, she's never been a quitter. Laney intends to win no matter what when she enters the Gamescape.
As the book suggests the story revolves around Laney grey, a 28 year old woman who is close to death. Almost every doctor she meets tell her the same thing that her cancer is incurable. But until one day, a man named Victor visits her in the hospital and told her, she can be cured if she agrees to do the assignment his pharmaceutical company give her even if it meant to kill people.This assignment is only known as Gamescape.
If she wins this Gamescape she will be given a chance to live an extra-ordinary healthy life devoid of all the diseases in the future.Whether she agrees for Gamescape or not?What is going to happen to her if she agrees?Will she be able to succeed along with a number of potential competitors just like her?This is the suspense that will be continued on next episode..Since this is an introduction to many upcoming series, It is hard for me to give an extensive review.But despite that it is a nice read.I will definitely recommend this book to anyone who is fond of a good serial.
My thoughts:I didn't like the fact Laney Grey's father left her just because he lost his wife.If he has lost his wife, then she has lost her own mother.And also at some places I felt like Laney Grey is over reacting, let it be her boyfriend or Gamescape officials. But Overall, I am really looking forward to reading the next series of this book.There is no doubt, this will indeed make a good action packed serial.
