Synopsis

In a world full of superhumans with fantastical abilities the idea of superheroes is seen as nothing more than childish dreams. The superheroes are instead streamers, people stream their crime-fighting ordeals for the world with the whole reason of getting rich and famous, nothing more, nothing less. The concept of great power means great responsibility is thrown out the window for a new era of supers.

Alton Brantley is one such person. Working two part-time jobs to make ends meet he keeps his powers a secret not wanting the burdens of his past to define him. This changes however when he is met by a larger than life girl Zinnia, she dreams of being a real-life superhero like the ones of old. Forming Team Rhapsody they begin to climb the ranks gaining new allies in order to become the most famous streamers the world has ever seen.

    Right, I guess there would be some minor (?) spoilers in the World Background section of this review. I didn't put a spoiler tag because that normally deters people from reading the review. So, this is just a warning in case you haven't read the book yet. There's currently 53 chapters, and I just read all of them. The book's good, very good, and it's a shame that it doesn't have much of a following currently. Firstly, the writing quality is pretty good. The descriptions were eloquently put, and while the paragraphs were a bit long in the first few chapters, along with the spelling and punctuation mistakes as well as typos throughout the book, I really can't criticize it. Story development is good too. I dunno what to put in this area. The plot proceeded smoothly, and hints are given throughout the book as to what possible future developments may be. Right, into character design... I love the characters in this book. Every single character has their own personalities, thoughts and feelings and react in different ways to the situations that come up. Not to mention, there are no forced relationship developments, and even the antagonists have their reasons that could be considered justifiable when you look at everything that's happened from their perspective. You can also notice the changes in each character as they go through different situations, and how they reflect on things that happen in the past in a realistic way. Yeah, the characters were remarkably realistic and relatable, which is one of my favorite things about this book. The chapter's updating stability seems rather, well, stable. I can't exactly judge since it's still near the beginning of the book based on the developments that have happened so far, and most of the chapters seem to have been released en masse. Ok, onto world background. This is one aspect that wasn't as strong as the others. I'll still give it 4 stars, since things are still in the process of being introduced gradually, and the things we've learnt so far have been introduced in a natural way. Just that we don't really know that much about the setting of this world. To sum it up, some people have superpowers, an incident happened long ago, and superheroes were frowned upon after that so ability-wielders decided to make money from streaming their exploits instead. The 'city?' is surrounded by a wall that protects everything inside from whatever the fúck is going on outside. Seems to be an ice age? Of course, that's not everything, but in all honesty, I don't have a clear picture of this world. There are too many questions currently, and I understand that everything will be slowly uncovered in due time, but this is all I can put as of right now. To sum up, this book was great. I willingly gave up my time that I was supposed to be completing important work to read this, and it's now quarter to six in the morning. I have no regrets. I highly recommend it; while there are probably some slightly shiner diamonds in the rough, this is a rather unique and interesting one, and my personal opinion between both types of books will always favour the latter such as these.

    Greetings all! This is the author of V.I.R.A.L, nearly four months ago I gave a review for my book, giving people a rough idea of what the story was going to be about. A lot has changed then with two more volumes and the fifth one well on its way. Because of this, I wanted to update my review to be in line with the, what I believe, is the quality of the book. Much of the points I put through with that review still stand. A slowish pace character-focused superhero story with multiple main characters. This will not change as it's my characters that really carry the story, don't just take my word for it, others reviews agree, and while the story is now really kicking off, I'm only under halfway through the story I want to tell. The other problems people had with this story I've tried my best to fix, I've gone over each chapters improving the grammar and spelling mistakes to the best of my abilities! (There will still be spelling mistakes, of course, I'm one person) which will make for an easier reading experience. I've also added small changes and additions to the first few chapters to give a more exciting beginning and an insight into the world my story take place in. Speaking of world-building. I've made it my absolute goal to make my story a living breathing one you can believe in. Although it only takes place in serval locations, I believe that I've really built up the backstory and history of my world into one of wonder and mystery waiting to be explored over the last few volumes. With the main threat teased through the book well on its way, I'm more excited than ever to keep building the story and history of this world for you all to read. Lastly, I want to thank everyone for reading; if it weren't for you, I wouldn't be able to improve my book the way I have. I'm always looking for ways to make the best story possible, and any criticism is always appreciated, and I love every review and comment made. So as of today, this is my definitive review that will be on the front page until the last chapters. The first review I gave my book 3.8 stars which I thought was fair at the time of the story. But now with more chapters, world-building, character development and grammar checks, I can happily give myself 4.4 stars. I hope both new and old readers keep up with this ever-growing story through 2021 and beyond!

    Hello all, this is the author behind V.I.R.A.L. I thought this would be the easiest way to talk to you all about this book. I thank you all for taking the time to read this story, I've had this story idea for years now, and I am so looking forwards to writing it. As of this moment, my spelling nor grammar is fantastic, I have no editor, so I must edit and produce these chapters daily. Please excuse the spelling mistakes! This story sees the concept of superheroes being internet personalities like streamers and YouTubers. This story follows a group of streamers trying to make ends meet and become the number one streamer. I thought before you read this story, I would give you a heads up on what the information is like the pros and cons in my eyes. The cons to this book to some people may include -Many main characters. As of volume 1, I have six main characters. This means not everyone gets the spotlight and some might be forgotten for a while although I do try and give every character their moments to shine -Slow pace. Compared to other superhero stories, don't expect a fight scene every chapter. I can have serval chapters of just character development and day to day activities. I wanted this to be a character drive story so a lot of action can take a back seat for that. -Poor Grammer. It's something I can't hide. The earlier chapters have plenty of spelling mistakes and grammar, which I can no longer fix. The now updated ones have mitigated this, but I cannot promise any errors here and there. If you guys can get over those shortcomings, then I welcome you to V.I.R.A.L, a character-driven superhero story with hardship, friendship and betrayal as becoming a streamer isn't easy. Please give it a read for yourself and have a look. P.S I gave myself 3.8 stars as that's where I believe that is where the story is as of volume 2. I have big plans and hope to gain more fans and love. No story can ever be five stars in my eyes as there is always room for improvement!

    Honestly, I’m only a few chapters in, but I can say that I’ve really been enjoying the read. As long as you overlook a few minor spelling mistakes, everything about plot, characters, etc. is great. It often seems random, but in a good, natural way.

    well dropping it. MC has no personality that make him protagonist but a pathetic loser who don't even try. And the girl character is shown too needy. Fight scenes are so confusing and complex that you will find it hard to understand.

    I came here from Wattpad after falling in love with this unique superhero story. I love the down the earth characters that each have their problems and ways into looking at situations. It really reminds me of a persona game in that light. The build-up to the Garden and the past behind Alton and the loss of his former allies at Sunset Peak is exciting and something that's got me hooked. The villains are all different with even the smaller one-off villains getting detailed backstories. Paradox is looking to be the next big threat, and I'm super excited to see how this slender man type villain will work and what their reason for trying to take down the heroes.

    yeah, not my cup of tea. MC rolls over whenever the girl wants something. Forgiving the guy who tried to kill you just a minute ago because the girl thinks he's a good guy?
