Workaholic insurance attorney Luke Darringer has it all: money, looks, ambition. Sure, he hasn’t taken a vacation in over a decade, and his personal life is almost nonexistent—but that’s a small price to pay in order to maintain strict control, and minimize his vulnerabilities.

But then Luke’s firm, with the help of his cheeky administrative assistant Charlotte, strong-arm

AUDIO BOOK REVIEW. What a premise! Dreamscape Adventures, Inc. offers its clients a virtual get-away into the fantasy world of the client’s choice. Knights in shining armor? You got it. Alien world adventure? No problem. DA can create any alternate reality experience for your pleasure – or your therapy. Since I very recently had my own, first time interactive virtual reality experience that included a showdown with Darth Vader (at the amazing VOID in Orlando), this book had great appeal.

I've seen West World ... probably hard not to make a comparison, as the basic premise is similar. It also reminded me a bit of a movie "OtherLife" where the vacation/experience is completely simulated but feels real. This seemed a mix of the two. Some simulation, some robot interaction/"real" physical world.

Spoilers ahead ... (view spoiler)

Rating: 4.5 Stars

Ms. Gray has given me quite the adventure. First she gives me a character that I started out wondering if I would ever like him. He seemed bound and determined not to like what was going to happen to him. Then we meet his assistant. You start to wonder why she stays working for a man who seems so self-absorbed. You continue because you wonder what the author plans for the character's/and our adventure. I was impressed that the author included a character that has a disorder. We

It's release day!! This is my first standalone novel, and the protagonists are also older (though I never say how old -- they're in their careers, though). The story is character-driven magical realism, and the first where the primary conflict is internal, mirrored by experiences in the external world. It's a quick, fun read, and it was a lot of fun to write!

Dreamscape Adventures is an entertaining and thought-provoking book, with both engaging technology and descriptions and an underlying challenge to the idea that people's personalities and attitudes about the world are fixed in middle age.

Dreamscape the company within the book is a virtual reality tourism company -- somewhat like in Total Recall but that instead of lying in a chamber and wearing a headset, users are freely moving about an environment -- but nanobots injected into their bodies inf

Reviewed for Readers' Favorite

As a mixture between a polished, mild Westworld adventure and one inside a program of the holodeck on the Enterprise from Star Trek, ‘Dreamscape Adventured, Inc’ by C. A. Gray gets the reader right into the action. Luke Darringer is a successful lawyer in New York City. His company is supposed to try one of their programs to evaluate the risks and eventually underwrite them. Just like in Westworld, the reader is thrown into the desert between Arizona, Utah, and Neva

I very much enjoyed this book, even though the author tipped her hand just a bit during the adventure. I didn’t mind, because I was so caught up in the story. I couldn’t always tell what was going to happen next, and there were a few twists that I didn’t see coming. Clever premise, tight writing, engaging characters. I really liked the way the protagonist was portrayed and the background information that was gradually revealed. I especially enjoyed the way this character remembered his past, ver ...more

This is a different kind of book for me so I was not sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Although it might seem like Westworld, the story is fresh. The characters are interesting and complex. Luke has been through a lot of trauma in his life leaving him not interested in a long term relationship and he seems like a jerk. There are twists, many of which were expected but some that weren’t.
I definitely enjoyed reading this book.
I am giving it four stars due to the improbability of ce

And C.A. Gray does it again! How the author comes up with all these great story lines is beyond me! You know a book is good when it has you crying in emotional scenes because you love the characters so much! This is a great book and I highly recommend it! I think the story line is relatable to a lot of people who like to bury their emotions inside. I’m sad this book is a stand alone because I’d love to read more about the characters but alas, the author wrote a great single story book and you sh ...more

Fantastic story. Fast paced and entertaining. This story was very character driven and the main character was a very interesting and damaged man.This story was more emotional than I thought it would be. The reader may have had an idea as to what was happening but the main character didn't. It was amazing to see how he responded and how much he helped himself in the process. I was highly invested in his journey and loved seeing his transformation.

Easily her best work to date

Instead of chasing demons in the external world, Gray chases demons in Luke Derringer, her main character (in a great cast of characters). As always, the science is engaging and believable, but the interactions of the characters are even more engaging and believable. Kudos to Ms. Gray for another excellent read.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Seeking funding for their project that allows customers to live out their own personal adventure of choice, Luke is invited to go on an unpredictable adventure of his own. If you enjoy fantasy and sci-fi, you'll enjoy this book.

I really enjoyed Dreamscape, Inc. It has a novel concept on AI which i enjoyed. Great job kudos for C.A. Gray! Highly recommend it!

Matthew Berry did an awesome job of developing character vocals and keeping the story at a brisk pace that kept your attention throughout.

This is the second book I read from this author. I was surprised - in a good way - how differently it was written. An absolutely clever and suspenseful plot until the end. I received an advanced review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

I’ve been enjoying Ms. Gray’s audiobooks for a while now so tackling this one was a given but I actually had another reason for wanting to read it. Back in the day, when I was in the corporate world, my career was very much like Luke’s except that I wasn’t an attorney. I was an insurance casualty underwriter, tasked with deciding whether my company would agree to insure a particular client, and that frequently involved my visiting to see the operations for myself. Mind you, we didn’t deal with e ...more
