Michael is a gamer. And like most gamers, he almost spends more time on the VirtNet than in the actual world. The VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and it’s addictive. Thanks to technology, anyone with enough money can experience fantasy worlds, risk their life without the chance of death, or just hang around with Virt-friends. And the more hacking skills you have, the more fun. Why bother following the rules when most of them are dumb, anyway?

But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And recent reports claim that one gamer is going beyond what any gamer has done before: he’s holding players hostage inside the VirtNet. The effects are horrific—the hostages have all been declared brain-dead. Yet the gamer’s motives are a mystery.

The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker.
And they’ve been watching Michael. They want him on their team. But the risk is enormous. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid. There are back alleys and corners in the system human eyes have never seen and predators he can’t even fathom—and there’s the possibility that the line between game and reality will be blurred forever.

Beginning:

Michael spoke against the wind, to a girl named Tanya.

Page 58:

Cutter made that mysterious smile-grimace again, then spoke in a harsh whisper. “The Path.”

Michael frowned. Two simple words-but the way the man said them turned his insides cold.

Thoughts:

I bought this book as a Kindle deal. I’ve only read 1 book by this author, but I enjoyed it, so I decided to give this one a chance. It’s got mixed reviews, but the ones I saw were mostly positive. the story sounds interesting and I’m looking forward to reading it soon.


What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend? Let me know is the comments.

Happy reading, and I hope you have a nice weekend!
