Robby Asaro is dead.
He's a ghost in the machine, keeping a watchful eye on the arcade where he lost his life two decades before. And the afterlife is good. The best thing ever to have happened to him. But when the conscious electric current formerly known as Robby Asaro makes a decision to protect one of his favorite patrons, Tiffany Park, from a bully, he sets loose a series of violent supernatural events that can't be stopped.
Trapped inside the arcade as the kill count rises, Tiffany and a group of gamers must band together to escape from what used to be their favorite place on Earth...and the ghost of Robby Asaro.
From the author of Tribesmen, Video Night, and The Summer Job, Zero Lives Remaining is a masterful mix of horror and suspense, dread and wonder, and a timeless ghost story that solidifies Adam Cesare's reputation as one of the best up-and-coming storytellers around. This is Adam Cesare firing on all cylinders - and he's just getting started.

HANK HAD FRECKLES, WASN'T THAT AMAZING
- Jim "The Impatient"
I love the vintage feel of it... the videogame flashbacks to my youth. I remember being OBSESSED with Ms. Pacman at the pizza parlor, then on my Atari.
Tiffany. She embodied my nerdy superhero spirit. I felt her self confidence fading in and out, and I could totally relate, especially in regards to Chris.
He is concise, not too overdone, and malleable. He can voice a stroke victim, whose face is partially paralyzed, and a teenager, with equal aplomb, without being over the top.
Unfortunately, in the short time given, I felt connections with each of the characters in the story. There was some part of me that resonated deeply in all of them. Unfortunate, because almost nobody survived. Sorry if this is a spoiler, but I didn't tell you who....
My biggest thought about this story... hmmmm... I want to say it's a cross between Five Nights At Freddy's and Ready Player One, with a strong dose of horrific violence and a wicked amount of 80s nostalgia. A heady mix, in my opinion. I won a copy of this book via a Facebook party.
