"A John Joseph Adams book."
"It's said that sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, and an eccentric billionaire has set out to prove it by building an island retreat that brings the fantastic to life. In an action-packed novel for fans of Ready Player One, Carrie Vaughn asks what happens when a bunch of tech geeks and fantasy nerds don't realize the game they are now playing is for real?"-- Provided by publisher.

In a love letter to the fantasy and sf community, Vaughn (Kitty's Mix-Tape, 2020) geeks out in this Westworld-meets-The Lord of the Rings adventure. Addie, a skittish English professor with a traumatic background, is surprised when she's approached by "tech guru" Harris Lang to help with his latest project gone awry. Insula Mirabilis, a fantasy-themed island, has been hijacked by Lang's design team, which includes Dom, Addie's ex, who is the real reason she's there. Addie is mesmerized when all her favorite stories come to life, but the inevitable violence threatens the magic in which she sought comfort in the past. Gamers will share Addie's enthusiasm for the journey's Dungeons & Dragonsâlike arc, though the story and secondary characters sometimes take a back seat to fantasy and sf references, like "Oh my God, you put Ravenclaws and Slytherins in chargeâthat's the problem with this place!" Addie, however, is an endearing, relatable character with whom readers will sympathize. This guilty pleasure will interest readers who've come to love Vaughn's amusing writing style and strong female protagonists. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
