Something is rotten in the state of the NutriStart Skills Academy...

With the discovery of a human skull on the fringes of the school, children displaying symptoms of a bloody, unfamiliar contagion and a catastrophic malfunction in the site's security system, the NSA is about to experience a week that no amount of rebranding can conceal. As the academy descends into chaos, teacher Tom Rosen goes looking for answers But when the real, the unreal and the surreal are indistinguishable, the truth can be difficult to recognise.

One pupil, Gabriel Backer, may hold the key to saving the school from destroying itself and its students, except he has already been expelled. Not only that - he has disappeared down the rabbit-hole of 'Alpha/Omega' the world's largest VR role-playing game, filled with violent delights and unbridled debauchery. But as the game quickly sours, Gabriel will need to confront the real world he's been so desperate to avoid if he ever wants to escape..

Industry Reviews
Stranger Things meets Black Mirror and Ready Player One in this unsettling, near-future
SF standalone

"By the final chapter each thread has been skillyfully unravelled... Nicholas Bowling is a thrilling writer who keeps the reader permanently on edge."
Telegraph

"Inventive, playful bonkers writing... and an explosive finale that ties up all the story's threads with a beautiful, pitch-black bow."
SFX Magazine

"A relentlessly entertaining ride - memorably oddball characters, spot-on satire and smart, deadpan humour. I read it in a flurry."
Tim Major author of Snakeskins

"Too-close-for-comfort dystopia... A frightening picture of a repressive near-future, but it's the glints of humanity and humour in its telling that set it apart."
Louis Greenburg author of Green Valley

"Wonderfully twisty and atmospheric... One not to miss."
