In an increasingly wired and computer-friendly world, massive multiplayer online games have become the ultimate form of entertainment. And the most popular gaming universe of all is Omnitopia, created by genius programmer Dev Logan. For millions of people around the world, Omnitopia is an obsession, a passionate pastime, and almost a way of life. But there’s a secret to Omnitopia, one that Dev would give his life to protect: the game isn’t just a program or a piece of code, it has become sentient—alive. And it’s Dev’s job to keep it that way.

  • “Neatly set up for a sequel, this outstanding speculative novel is action-packed and fast-moving, and Duane’s lavish, expansive world building already seems eerily prescient.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 2/20/2014

    " A great fusion of biz/financial thriller and near-future VR science fiction. I had a hard time getting through the expository stuff in the first 50 pages or so, but once I hit my stride I couldn't put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila Beaumont | 2/9/2014

    " This is a wonderful, light SF thriller weaving together massively multiplayer online role-playing games and corporate intrigue. You'll find lots of likable, intelligent characters here, and a few requisite bad guys. I thought I knew where the story was going, but the ending really surprised me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana | 1/30/2014

    " Users of Second Life and World of Warcraft will find this pushes their gamer buttons. "

    " Cyber-space is the setting. Written from several character points-of-view. Looking forward to hearing more in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larri | 1/12/2014

    " As always, LOVED Diane Duane but now I am left wondering, will there be a second book???? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Otak | 12/3/2013

    " ok read, a bit naive view of the gaming world, black and white characters etc.can't call it challenging, but was ok to listen to while painting the bedroom which is what i needed it for ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Boots | 5/15/2013

    " I enjoyed this book; the good guys were good and the bad guys weren't. And I really liked how they portrayed the code and computer battles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 1/31/2013

    " I so want to play online in the Omnitopedia worlds. Sounds like a combination of WoW and Second Life and something bigger. What variety and what fun! I flew through this book, it sucked me right in and I was even okay with the ending. Can't wait for #2. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Riley | 12/8/2012

    " For the record I did not actually finish or even read half of this book. I just think Omnitopia Dawn is a really fun word to say and I FUCKING WANT THE GAME TO HAPPEN. That is all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 11/17/2012

    " Meh kind of anticlimactic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Levi Boorer | 8/24/2011

    " Nothing is wrong in this book which is precisely what is wrong with it. "

    " Read from 8/17 - 8/21. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alaina | 4/7/2011

    " I just keep stumbling across books with sentient computers! This was very entertaining. Four stars instead of five because I felt like the good guys and bad guys were way too black and white. Still, sometimes it's nice to read about an impossibly utopian workplace. "

    I'm glad that my guess about the identity of Phil's informant was incorrect. "
