The Fool, Virtual Arcana Book 0 by Karen Amanda Hooper

The Fool
Virtual Arcana 0

The Fool by Karen Amanda Hooper
Series: Virtual Arcana Book 0
Expected publication: November 8th 2014

The Matrix meets The Notebook (with a sprinkle of The Giver).

In a faraway future, Kelsey Zellar is starting her senior year at yet another school thanks to her twin sister’s troublesome obsession with outlawed virtual reality games.

Every school they’ve ever attended is pretty much the same: lunchroom drama, rich kids binging on enhancement candies, and classmates rallying for or against the government’s strict control over everything from entertainment privileges to caffeine consumption.

Unlike her sister, Kelsey follows the rules and keeps her nose out of trouble and politics while sniffing out her next flavored latte and favorite novel. But when Kelsey meets a charming book connoisseur, and accepts his offering of a tarot card, she takes the first step toward two new addictions: the guy of her dreams, and his illegal dealing of virtual escapes into her beloved storybooks.

Kelsey straddles the worlds of fiction and reality, but is she a fool for believing in her own happy ending?

My thoughts about The Fool ~~

I love Karen's stories and was excited to hear that she was releasing her next project as a serial, which means we don't have to wait so long to read her words. Win! Win!

The Fool is the first installment of the Virtual Arcana series and sets the ground work for what I think will be a great set of stories. It is set in the future, years after 'The Crash', where the United States is no longer and you can be servely punished for playing illegal video games. What?

The fact that Kelsey loves her caffeine, which sadly is rationed out in this new world, and absolutely loves print books, endeared her to my heart. We are kindered spirits. She befriends, in a way, the cute guy from the coffee shop and is puzzled when he gives her a tarot card but swears her to secrecy.

What can it mean? And what has she gotten herself into? I can't wait to read the next episode to find out more! Keep writing, Karen!

This series will be serial style with short episodes (15-20k) releasing frequently. For those who want to wait for a longer, more complete story, a collection of the first 7 episodes, Virtual Arcana, Season 1, will be available once episode 7 has released.
