The Starriest Summer
The Cycle of the Six Moons #1
Adelle Yeung
Expected Publication: December 20, 2015
Fifteen-year-old Michelle saves the world on a daily basis…with her trusty video game controller, of course! Naturally, she jumps at the chance to play an experimental virtual reality game

The beautiful fantasy world of Starrs? Check. The power to mold matter? Check. No reset button? Wait, she didn’t sign up for this!

Turns out Starrs is really real, and to make matters worse, Michelle’s interference awakens the Cycle of the Six Moons, a series of devastating trials that will devour the universe.

Fighting the apocalypse was way easier when danger stayed on the other side of the screen, but Michelle finds a secret weapon in her new-found powers. She uses them to rescue the crown prince of a powerful magic kingdom from their sworn enemies, a technologically-advanced cult that strives to eradicate magical blood.

Michelle starts to fall for Prince Jayse, the only one who believes Michelle to be a savior rather than a curse. But not even video games could prepare her for what the cult has in store for them…
I'd sign up for that virtual reality game in a heartbeat - if it's Dragon Age. HAVE YOU PLAYED DRAGON AGE??? YOU SHOULD!!! Rich story, awesome landscapes, fully customized characters... Ah, Dragon Age.

The Starriest Summer reminds me of those self-insert fanfiction. I mean, who wouldn't want to be inside their favorite books, movies, games? And, boom! you find out it's really real. Calls to mind the Greed Island segment of Hunter X Hunter where a game could transport players inside; only, it turns out it just transports them, bodily, to an island halfway across the world.

Yep. The Starriest Summer sounds like something to look forward to.
