ARC Review: Alpha, Omega – Nicholas Bowling

A huge thank you to Titan Books and NetGalley for this review copy!

*Publication Date: 21st July 2020*

The blurb from the back of the book:

With the discovery of a human skull on the playing fields, children displaying symptoms of an unfamiliar, grisly virus and a catastrophic malfunction in the site’s security system, the NSA is about to experience a week that no amount of rebranding can conceal. As the school descends into chaos, teacher Tom Rosen goes looking for answers but when the real, the unreal and the surreal are indistinguishable, the truth can be difficult to recognise.

One pupil, Gabriel Backer, may hold the key to saving the school from destroying itself and its students, except he has already been expelled. Not only that – he has disappeared down the rabbit-hole of “Alpha Omega” the world’s largest VR role-playing game, filled with violent delights and unbridled debauchery. But the game quickly sours. Gabriel will need to confront the real world he’s been so desperate to escape if he ever wants to leave…


Brilliant book. As soon as I saw this on NetGalley I was intrigued. When I saw that the publisher was Titan Books I was set on it.

It was full of action and kind of spooky, especially with the current situation!

I loved that there was a big emphasis on VR games and it gave me major Ready Player One vibes!

I loved the main character, Gabriel, and thought he was really relatable.

I couldn’t put it down, and I certainly won’t forget this story for a long time!

I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My name is Lisa and the pooch in my profile picture is my baby, Skye. I love everything bookish! I also find things like tarot and angel cards, along with runes and gemstones really interesting and I like to incorporate these into my photos.
