Grid Seekers

Grid Seekers - Logan Byrne I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Alexia Meyers is seventeen years old and lives in a dystopian future where the internet is no longer known as the internet it is now called the WorldNet. In the WorldNet people are physically connected to WorldNet. Well their bodies don’t literally go inside WorldNet but it feels and looks real to them. They know that their bodies are not really there with them even though it does feel like it. Alexia lives in New York one of the six megacities as they are called now. Alexia has never been outside of New York but neither have most of the other people who live there. New York has a block wall built around it now so she couldn’t leave New York if she tried.

New York is divide into different sections by I guess you could say by class or how rich a person may be. Alexia is on the down side of everything so she never got much of an education because they couldn’t afford it. Besides she needed to go to work to help her mom, Kate out with paying bills and buying groceries. She also helps take care of her little sister Saraia. Alexia loves both her mother and sister so very much at the moment they are her life. Alexia is so good hearted they she has never felt any resentment toward her mother or sister for having to work and help make ends meet as they say. Everyone in Alexia’s world has to do the same thing probably so that is all they know.

Once a year they hold a lottery drawing where there are four people from each of the six megacities picked to be on a live tv show. To be eligible to enter the lottery you must be between the ages of sixteen to sixty and have been on the WorldNet at least one time within the past year. This year Alexia is one of the lucky ones who was drawn to be on the tv show if you want to call it that. On this tv show they assign everyone a partner from their own city and they must compete against others from their own city and from the other megacities. The losers are punished severely so Alexia is determined to win the contest so that she can go back home to her family.

She is taken away from her family whom she may not see again for a very long time if she does not win. She is taken to a facility to meet the other twenty-three people whom she will be competing against and her partner. She will be trained and then sent inside WorldNet to compete and hopefully win. Alexia’s partner is a very handsome young man, Liam who may just be the only person that she can trust. Well hopefully she can trust him as he is her partner. There are times in the game that I am not so sure if she can trust him or not. One minute he seems like the greatest human on the face of the earth and the next minute he sounds like he is about to stab you in the back.

I really enjoyed reading Grid Seekers way more than I thought I would. It was so different than any book I think I have ever read. It was written like a movie sort of. Half of the time I thought I was watching a movie. I loved trying to guess who did what and who the good guys were and who the bad guys were. Grid Seekers is an amazing book that will take you on the ride of your life. You won’t know from one minute to the next what is going to happen. But one thing I can tell you is you better strap in and hold on when you start reading it or you just may fall right off. It will take you on so many hair bend turns and twist you won’t know what has hit you. But it is one book you won’t want to miss out on reading. So snatch your copy today so you go on this little ride with Alexia, Liam, Jason, Bridgette, Jamie, Mathew just to name a few of the characters. Some of the characters will surprise you while you can guess exactly what some of the characters are up too or at least you think you do. Any ways I can’t wait to read the next book. Will it tell the story from Liam’s or one of the other characters pov or will it tell us more about Alexia and Liam? I would love to read more about Alexia and Liam and their families. Thanks Logan for one awesome book. I tee totally loved it! I recommend it to all age groups who loves a good story.
