Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe:

Imagine a life of virtual reality -- a childhood contained in a controlled environment, with no human contact. Corgan has been genetically engineered for quick reflexes, high intelligence, and physical superiority. He is unbeatable in battle. But he lives his life in a lonely module. What is a real sunset like? Or a friend?

When he meets fellow teens Sharla and Brig, Corgan begins to doubt the Federation, whose decisions he has unquestioningly obeyed. Life outside virtual reality may be for him. His fourteen years of training are about to end as the real challenge approaches. But he can't lose focus now: He must win a virtual war, or the Western Hemisphere will be lost forever.

Rezension: Any teen who's ever been sucked into a video game or spent time in virtual worlds on the Net will be completely transfixed by this chilling, fast-paced novel. Fourteen-year-old Corgan was genetically engineered to be the fastest player on any electronic playing field. Every second counts, too, because Corgan is preparing for the big war: a bloodless, electronic battle to be waged against other doomed worlds. Always mindful of the Council's orders, Corgan has trained his whole life for this war, but--on the eve of the battle--he decides to break the rules for the first time. Do the Council members really know what's best for the Earth? Corgan needs to learn to think for himself, because everyone on the planet will be affected by his decisions.
