Publisher's Summary

Colene does not know what to think of the stranger she has rescued. Darius tells her he has traveled from "his reality" to find her. In proving to Colene that other worlds do exist, he uses up the power of the artifact that would allow them to travel back to his universe.They must try a slower, more dangerous method: the creation of a four-dimensional universe. Darius picks five anchor points in five different universes to set up a skew path, a "virtual mode," on which the anchors can walk.

Thus begins a tale of romance, danger, adventure, and intrigue as the two travel through a myriad of alternate realities where anything is possible.

Yawn!

Boy, I read the whole Incarnations of Immortality series and loved it! What rich writing! I expected more of the same from this series but could not even get through Part 1. It just ho-hummed along. The narration was flat, the story was flat. Flat, flat, flat. Narration was like listening to the reading of an instructional manual.

Computer Narrated?

While the story is engaging and well put together the narrative on this is terrible. It sounds as if it was auto-narrated by computer simulated voice. So much so that i could only stomach about 40 mins before I had to turn it off for good. Not up to his novel's usual standards. I purchased this book after listening to all of his incarnations series (which were superbly narrated), and only feel let down by this. I wish I could get my credit back!

Great first book

Would you listen to Virtual Mode again? Why?

So much depth in each character and some really hard hitting situations

Any additional comments?

Some self harm and assault mentions may be triggering for some listeners.
