What happens when your real-life kind of sucks? You dive into a virtual one. In the year 2023, John Chambers is a middle-aged man in a dead-end job trapped in the hot desert. But, in the world of New Arcadia, John becomes Blaze, a young urban fighter with incredible speed and absolutely no lower back pain. In this immersive world, Blaze must team up with Iceman (known as Kevin in the real world) to save a mysterious young woman named Jessica.

She is in deep with the violent street gang of Satan’s Pantry known as the Spankers. But Jessica isn’t the pushover they believe her to be. She has a bit of bite to her. To save everyone, Blaze, Iceman and Jessica must learn to come together and stop the deadly Drug X from taking over the city. Back in the real world, New Arcadia creator Lucas Dekker has his own enemies to deal with, including some game-breaking bugs. The fate of his virtual city and the real world itself is at stake.

New Arcadia: Stage One‘s audio adaptation will release on Audible on March 2, 2021. You can read it now through Amazon Kindle. Check out the teaser below for a peek at the extraordinary voice acting we can expect! Let us know how excited you are in the comments below and on social media.
