#BookReview: Glitch Kingdom by Sheena Boekweg

Synopsis: The teenage daughter of an executioner and the traitorous prince she can’t kill must reluctantly join forces to dethrone a paranoid queen after discovering they are trapped in a video game in Sheena Boekweg's fast-paced YA debut, Glitch Kingdom...

Ryo was the golden boy, the prankster prince, but with one stroke of a pen he has lost everything. Dagney and Grigfen were happy as minor members of the court, but when their father, the king's executioner, is branded a traitor, they each must deal in death in order to survive.. McKenna, queen of the enemy realm, has inherited a mission of conquest by assassination, but worries she's not up to the role.

But behind the crowns and masks hides a secret… All of these teens are actually players in the newest, shiniest, most immersive virtual reality video game, competing against each other for a highly coveted internship with a prestigious game developer.

But now this life-changing opportunity has suddenly become a deadly trap. A glitch in the software has locked the players inside the game, and they’ll need to escape before the fantasy world corrupts around them. The only way out is to win.


Rating: ★★★
My Review: This one didn't have a cover when I grabbed and now that it does..............Well I am kind of disappointed.  The story though was one that was very unique.  I am kind of torn between really loving it and well really hating it. It is one of those stories that although I liked parts of it others just didn't do it for me.  This one though was one where kids are put into this VR game and its so real that some of them don't even remember that they are in a game.  It really gave me vibes of Ready Player One and a few games where it has your MC going into a VR world. 

It really didn't bring anything new to the world of gaming stories and was pretty predictable. If gaming is your thing this one might be for you.
