Scott is selected as a games tester for Virtual Kombat, the most realistic fighting video game ever invented - so real it hurts!

Once a Gamer enters the fighting world, it becomes hard to distinguish between what is real and what is not.

Scott must work his way up the ranks to make it out alive, but when friend and rival Kate fails to return from the Virtual Arena, Scott begins to wonder if it's more than just a game...

An action-packed dystopian novel particularly suitable for reluctant, struggling or dyslexic readers.
