Virtual reality gaming and the end of civilization collide in this action-packed cyberpunk adventure!
Ethan is young and unemployed. One of the many who fail to find a job and join the elite who run the government and the mega corporations. Stuck on economic support, he spends his idle days playing virtual reality games.
Yet, Ethan can't help but feel that something is deeply wrong with society. It reaps the benefit of advanced automation, but ruthlessly forbids further scientific development. Everyone is monitored and everything is controlled to promote harmony. That uneasy feeling becomes inescapable when Ethan starts playing the latest event in the world's most popular VR game. Countless players are lured into climbing the Tower of Ascension by an incredible cash prize. Inside, the combat is intense, but nothing is as it seems. The tower is far more than a game. Not only are its rewards very real, but so are its dangers. Players are disappearing as hidden forces prepare to seize a terrifying power.
Change is coming to a long stagnant world -a virtual revolution- and everything Ethan knows will be threatened. To survive, he will need to become far more than he ever thought possible.
