Part 1 of the MindWar Trilogy series.

							Rick Dial was the best quarterback Putnam Hills High School had ever seen. But when a car accident left him crippled, Rick disappeared into his bedroom-and into the glowing video screen. Rick's uncanny gaming skills have attracted dangerous attention. A Russian genius has created a digital reality called the Realm, from which he can control and disrupt American computer systems, from transportation to defense. The government wants Rick to enter the Realm and stop the madman-before America descends into chaos. Entering the Realm gives Rick a body as strong and fast as it was before the accident. But this is no game, there are no extra lives. Rick can't help but wonder, how many others have entered before him...and failed to return?

"Edgar Award-winning Klavan's well-orchestrated fantasy thriller features...an imaginative mix of gaming action with real-life stakes. With just the right cliff-hanger ending, this trilogy opener shows promise." - Booklist

"The novel's overarching conservative and nationalistic themes turn this seemingly gamer-centric sci-fi novel into an exposition on forgiveness, faith, family, and patriotism. With quoted Bible passages and casual conversations with God, the author brings to the forefront the importance of religion in the protagonist's life...Recommended for athletes, young gamers, and readers looking for YA books with a Christian outlook." - School Library Journal

"...the focus is on action, and there's just enough left unresolved to tempt readers onward." - Kirkus Reviews
