The Emperor by Karen Amanda Hooper
Series: Virtual Arcana Book 4
Publication date: February 15, 2015

The fifth 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 Emperor ~~

I love this series and love the mystery of the story! What is real and what is not real? Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys? Whew!! It's hard to keep up.
'Sorting out dreams, VR, and reality felt like an impossible task that my aching head couldn't handle anymore.'
Karen has kept my interest going in this serial by giving me just enough information with each episode to keep me moving forward with the plot but by also giving me new and different questions that need to be answered. I have to keep reading and I can't wait for the next one!
'I'll give it time if you explain why everything is such a mental hodgepodge for me.'

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.
