The Leveller (The Leveller #1) by Julia Durango (Review)

    An exciting science fiction adventure, The Leveller takes a reader on a ride through the computerized virtual reality game world; the MEEP, alongside the protagonist Nixy Bauer. Hired by the creator of the MEEP to bring back his son from the game, Nixy soon realizes that their is more to it then what meets the eye. The Leveller is a riveting an exciting read with a lot of creative ideas and fluent narration. There are elements of action, danger, humor and romance. I personally found the romance quite adorable and well written.
    The characters were very well developed and extremely addicting to read about. I loved Nixy with her extreme loyalty and strength. The way she dealt with the MEEP was almost inspirational. Everything she did was with confidence and a certain degree of kick butt-ery. On top of that, there was a moment of inner dialogue in the novel that really garnered my respect. It was a moment when Nixy had thoughts about how she does not change her appearance in the MEEP. She does this because she knew that if she did, the moment she left she would hate what she really looks like in the real world. That train of thought was extremely insightful and showed the characters true depth. Ultimately, I really enjoyed The Leveller and give it the rating of FOUR AND A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE!
