In Dreamscape Adventures, Inc. by C. A. Gray, Luke Darringer is a successful lawyer in New York City. His company is supposed to try one of their programs to evaluate the risks and eventually underwrite them. Just like in the series Westworld, the reader is thrown into the desert between Arizona, Utah, and Nevada. Everything looks so real that only when his adventure mixes with that of Charlotte, his administrative assistant, does Luke realize how good the Dreamscape’s project seems to be at first glance. However, from there, everything slides rapidly downhill, and the real adventure begins, with Luke never sure about what is real and what is not.

As a mixture between a polished, mild Westworld adventure and one inside a program of the holodeck on the Enterprise from Star Trek, Dreamscape Adventures, Inc. by C. A. Gray puts the reader right into the action. C. A. Gray writes a story that reminds me a lot of a holonovel from the Star Trek universe gone wrong, as it is in that universe tradition. The Eli/Luke and Billy/Luke interactions are entertaining and touching, while I found the ones between Luke and Charlotte not as appealing, but that’s because I don’t fancy romance so much. In the end, this story falls into that category as well. I think the author does a good job with the narrative. The actions are never boring, and the story pace never slacks. If you like an adventurous romance with a mixture of fantasy and sci-fi, this novel is definitely one for you.
