Right from the beginning, Elevator Quest sweeps the reader into a fun and exciting adventure. The fantasy world these people enter has a distinct game-like structure that reminded me a little of Sword Art Online. Emmanuel M Arriaga keeps the adrenalin levels high for most of the book, which forces his characters to evolve and adjust on the run. Elevator Quest has a large cast of characters that includes a good balance of diverse backgrounds and ethnicities as well as a fair mix of male and female characters. This instantly makes Elevator Quest more relatable and realistic overall, although I admit that I had trouble keeping track of those characters who had less dialogue and direct involvement. Although the plot lacks depth for the most part, the ending introduces an intriguing explanation for the strange events. Elevator Quest is a captivating, action-packed thrill ride.
