A virtual game of apocalypses malfunctions, trapping players inside. The simulation pods are designed to last 3 days. There's no communication in or out. And the A.I. is evolving.

Kelly Lawrence is a grieving widow. Jack Minnow is a website designer. Reis Anderson is the son of a senator.

These three friends have their own reasons for signing up to The Apocalypse Games, a state-of-the-art virtual simulation experience, designed to prepare people for any number of catastrophic scenarios. But nothing will prepare them for what happens on launch day when the computer malfunctions, trapping over a hundred players inside a never-ending cycle of apocalypses.

The players name the artificial intelligence controlling the game, Pandora. The A.I. seems intent on keeping them inside the game. Yet the A.I. is doing more than trying to kill the players. Soon they'll discover that Pandora is trying to reach out to them, and in doing so, it's forcing them to confront their past and the reasons they escaped into this game.

Can they get out of the game before Pandora gets too deep inside their minds? Or is this computer preparing them for something else?

Pandora is the first book in The Apocalypse Games, a sci-fi adventure trilogy featuring multiple apocalyptic scenarios as well as compelling characters. If you liked The 100 and The Hunger Games, and if you like stories about family and friendship, you'll love this series.

Buy Pandora today to start reading this unique look at a post-apocalyptic world.

Review quote

This book tracks three players who enter a virtual reality apocalypse game as a team. They are scheduled to play one game, a vampire apocalypse, and then disengage. This was an action-packed story that also managed to explore the team's personalities and problems. - Netgalley reviewer

Really enjoyed this book, if you're a fan of apocalyptic fiction then this is definitely the book for you, there is not just one apocalypse but multiple scenarios! Jack, his sister Kelly and their friend Reis are taking part in a virtual reality game, the rules are clear, no one will be harmed...but then it all starts going wrong. - Netgalley reviewer

This is the first book in a series. I loved the storyline which was well thought out and the central characters. I found I was holding my breath at times. Will definitely be reading more from this author. Can't wait for the next installment. - Netgalley reviewer
