Soda Pop Soldier
by Nick Cole
HarperCollins, $14.99, 368pp
Publication Date: August 12, 2014
Back cover:

Call of Duty meets Diablo in this fast-paced, action-packed novel from the author of The Wasteland Saga.  Gamer PerfectQuestion fights for ColaCorp in WarWorld, an online combat sport arena where mega-corporations field entire armies in the battle for real world global advertising-space dominance. Within the immense virtual battlefield, players and bots are high-tech grunts, using dropships and state-of-the-art assault rifles to attack the enemy.  But when times are tough, there’s always the Black, an illegal open-source tournament where the sick and twisted desires of the future are given free reign. And what begins as PerfectQuestion’s onetime effort to make some cash quickly turns dangerous. All too soon, the real and virtual worlds collide when  PerfectQuestion refuses to become the tool of a madman intent on hacking the global economy for himself and fights to stay alive-in WarWorld, in the Black, and in the real world.”

Without a doubt this book is going to be a classic gamer required reading. It is a Science-Fiction and first- person gamer’s nirvana. This is the first book by Nick Cole that I have read. I think that maybe I should get  some of his other books like “The Wasteland Saga.”  This book is a five out of five stars. ~~ CLD
