The High Priestess (Virtual Arcana #2) by Karen Amanda Hooper

The High Priestess
Virtual Arcana 2

The High Priestess by Karen Amanda Hooper
Series: Virtual Arcana Book 2
Expected publication: December 15th, 2014

The third book in the VIRTUAL ARCANA series.

The series starts with book 0: The Fool.

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 in a coffee shop parking lot, 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 High Priestess ~~

This story continues to intrigue me. Yes, it is a bit confusing trying to wrap my head around what is happening to Kelsey and what is expected of her. But I trust the author to bring the story around and it will all make sense in the end.
'The more she explained, the more lost I felt.'
I kind of felt the same way sometimes, the more that happened, the more confused I became, not knowing what was real and what was not.
'You aren't able to see the whole picture yet, and he can't tell you what's real. You must seek reality deep within you.'
I am beginning to think that this may be the kind of story that I will be reading again when I'm done. It will all make sense on the second read, I'll see the whole picture then. But I really do love how this series is developing.
'You've heard of wormholes, right?' 'Similar concept. Except story-holes take you from this world into fictional ones.'
Wouldn't that be awesome?

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.

  1. Sounds like an interesting premise. Not sure I would enjoy it though because of the confusing element. :)
