Brilliant, fast paced thrill ride, 10 Aug 2012
My daughter read this fantastic book in non-stop, marathon reading session that was over within 24 hours. I could not get her to put it down!! After all that, I had to read it myself. It was a real treat. In a similar vein to "Neuromancer" or more recently, "Ready Player One", but geared for younger readers and with some really interesting twists of its own, it describes a post-energy crisis world that has moved online for most people's existence. The characters are interesting and evolving, showing growth as they learn more about what is really going on in the world. The world itself, as is true in the best fiction, is fascinating and I really hope the author spends more time in the Metaverse in coming novels.
