Arena by Holly Jennings REVIEW


The RAGE tournaments--the Virtual Gaming League's elite competition where the best gamer in the world face off in a fight to the digital death. Every kill is broadcast to millions. Every player leads a life of ultimate fame, responsible only for entertaining the masses.
And though their weapons and armor are digital, the pain is real.
Chosen to be the first female captain in RAGE tournament history, Kali Ling is at the top of the world--until one of her teammates overdoses. Now she's stuck trying to work with a hostile new teammate who's far more distracting than he should be. Between internal tensions and external pressures, Kali is on the brink of breaking. To change her life, she'll need to change the game. And the only way to revolutionize an industry as shadowy as the VGL is to fight from the inside . . .

My Thoughts:

The beginning of this book was kind of boring. To the point where I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy it. 
But I'm glad I kept reading, because it got a lot more interesting.
When Kali's teammate Nathan is found dead of an overdose, Kali snaps. She knows many gamers do eventually go mad, but she stands up to it eventually, which saves her life and her team's reputation. The new teammate, Rooke, seems to not like anyone, but she finds out that he has struggled with the same problem and had a friend experience madness like Nathan's.
They start to pull together and work hard to win the final tournament.
The end was a bit sudden though.
However, I really ended up enjoying this book a lot.

My Rating: 4 stars
