    What if life as we know it was just a game? What if instead of traditional schools, children learned by participating in a virtual reality simulation, one that allowed them to experience "life" from birth to death - multiple times? What if one player, on his final play, could change the world forever?

    A good concept mired by lazy writing.

    Millions on Earth are shaken by the events set in motion by Zack's final play. Billions on Tygon watch breathlessly as the consequences of his actions ripple through both worlds. Will his girlfriend, still inside the Game, step forward to lead the movement that he created? Billions of lives are in jeopardy of being lost based on the decisions made by children inside the Game.

    Downhill from the first book.

    Immature writing, no new innovative ideas introduced and really harped on the religious aspect. Last hr and a half was a chore to get through.

    Classic in a rush writing ..

    Book 1 in the series created a bunch of interesting possibilities. Book 2 ignored the story premises set up in book 1, and told of an incoherent set ..Show More »

    Dawn belongs to a secret group of teenagers who play a cloak and dagger game on their cell phones. Her world is turned upside down when the players' actions begin to affect reality, and not in good ways.

    Bait and Switch

    I'm still planning on reading the story that was previewed, twice now, at the end of the book.

    Firstly, I just want to thank Schott for naming a major character after me. I'm sure this isn't at all a coincidence. Nope. ;)
