Voiceless by E.G. Wilson

Adelaide Te Ngawai was thirteen when Maunga Richards stole her voice.

Addy is plunged into silence when a high school bully inflicts her with an incurable disease that leaves her unable to speak, write, or create. Vox Pox—a man-made malady that’s been terrorizing the city for months. Resilient, Addy fights to survive. To not be silenced. But then her brother, Theo, is infected as well.

Desperate for any information that might help cure Theo, Addy follows Maunga into a newly developed virtual psychoreality simulator and discovers a conspiracy deeper than she’d ever imagined. How far will she go to save her brother?

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

E. G. Wilson is a new-to-me author. I'd highly recommend to fans of virtual-reality/gaming/MMORPGs & Dystopian fiction.

At 13, a budding writer, Addie is injected by her bully/older classmate with a virus that silences its victim. Unable to write or speak, Addie loses all of her creativity.

Years later, a virtual reality program is announced, one Addie is desperate to use.

With 500+ silenced victims, Addie uses the program to have a voice and call out the young woman who silenced her.

Voiceless uses a vast virtual reality world, AI, and ghosts imprinted into the program to create a vivid and intriguing story.

All genders, young and young at heart, will enjoy the game-play-esque writing style, mixed with the sense of powerlessness, selflessness, loss, and empowerment, as Addie and her unlikely ally try to stop the one silencing people.

There is an underlying romance thread, but it doesn't involve our narrator.

Thoroughly intrigued, I can't wait to get my hands on the next installment.

Young Adult age-range: 12+

E.G. Wilson cut her authorial teeth writing Sherlock fanfiction at uni when she should really have been studying. She fell into writing science fiction after being inspired by Star Wars, Firefly, and Tolkien's legendarium and has since won NaNoWriMo every year since 2012. She lives in South Canterbury, New Zealand; she loves mountains, hates broad beans, and never wears matching socks.
