In Reality by DC Wince, The Game is about to begin, a game where there can be only one winner, and the losers' fates will be in the hands of the Watchers. In the searing heat of the Sahara desert and the African savannah, four men battle for survival. British ex-journalist Charlie Grimer, investment bankers Ernst Jaeger and Dale Crumb, and a young Aborigine, Blaze Mullins, have all been kidnapped when they discovered a plan by a secret organization called The Syndicate to carry out the biggest terrorism plot in US history. If their plot is successful, the entire world will face certain destruction. The men are forced to compete in a warped and bloodthirsty game of survival, watched by only the chosen few. If they perish, they will be unable to stop The Syndicate's horrifying plan and civilization will be plunged into chaos and war.
Reality by DC Wince ticks every box for me. The plot is intriguing, thought-provoking, and compelling. The author's descriptive narrative transports you immediately into the world of the characters. My favorite characters were Blaze and Charlie and I loved the development of their relationship. The mixture of action and tension was perfect and the areas of conflict were truly the strength of this novel. There are many shocking layers to the plot and these were gradually revealed as the story progressed. There are many conspiracy theories covered such as the New World Order, corrupt financial organizations, governments, and intelligence agencies with secret and dangerous agendas that place humanity's safety in jeopardy. I also found the manipulation of the truth by the media truly worrying: ‘Who controls the world controls reality.' The methods the elites used to manipulate and control the truth were not only disturbing but highly relevant in today's society. I found each character's personality had been carefully considered and the backstories to each person gave me a helpful insight into their thought processes. The dialogue exchanges were amazing and, at times, powerfully emotional. The story never lagged and I was completely gripped until the very end. The ending was explosive, especially the final scenes between Dale and Charlie, and really left you wanting more from these characters. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
