This was such a fun story I have always found the idea of virtual worlds to be pretty fascinating so a story where veryday people get worlds to be pretty fascinating so a story where veryday people get go to work in a spectacular virtual nviroment was right up my alley The world that Nansi Kunze has created within Virk is dripping with imagination and really pulls you in as Alex puts on her suit in order to have a realistic xperience in the Wanton Nights environment right through to her last day on the jobI also reallynjoyed the supporting characters Alex s group of real world friends They have a really believable group group of real world friends They have a really believable group and truly acted like the teenagers they are I also loved that the romantic interest storyline wasn t blatantly obvious right from the get go I won t give it away but tell you that it at least kept me guessingOne thing I maybe had a bit of trouble with was that it never really felt like the main character Alex was in any real danger of being accused of murder For so many reasons this was the most realistic route to take but it did kind of take away from the feeling of Alex actually having anything to loseA fun mystery story for the technological age and definitely a recommended read Dangerously Placed was uite a thrill ride I was blown away by how developed and realistic Nansi s virtual reality technologies were They were While My Soldier Serves extremely well thought out So much that I could definitely see us using similar technologies in the future I alsonjoyed how the book was physically broken up Each chapter takes place over one day This made it asy to keep track of how time progressed Sometimes for me it is asy to lose track of how much time has passed in novels Unfortunately I did find Dangerously Placed lacking in character development initially BUT by the nd the flatness I felt at first was gone and I had a chance to see the intricacies of the secondary characters Though this was an interesting developed story it did not grab me like the many sci fi books I have read before Perhaps the timing was off but I just wasn t feeling it I do however feel that this book definitely has a place in the YA sci fi genreDangerously Placed finished as a strong sci fi adventure At 274 pages this ualifies as a uick read I definitely recommend this to fans of the sci fi and adventure genres I m very curious to see what Nansi has in store for us next Review orginally posted at read Nansi s first book Mishaps way back
