The MindWar Realm, created by computer hacking terrorist Kurodar, is a world void of all life where rotting living dead creatures roam and graveyards are full of terrible memories. Kurodar needed a place to find a way to get his vengeance. The only way to defeat Kurodar is to send Rick Dial, a high school athlete turned MindWarrior. With the help of his MindWar avatar friends, Favian and Mariel, in a battle of good versus evil, he must find within himself the faith in order to triumph over the beast.
Not your typical YA Fiction novel, Andrew Klavan captured my attention with vivid storytelling allowing me to become part of the world in which he created. Chapter after chapter, I found myself not being able to put it down due to the suspense and not knowing what might come of Rick and his friends. The overall’s message of the story is simple: Believing in yourself and never giving up will take you farther in life than any kind of hatred ever will. Even though this is part three of a trilogy, I didn’t need to read the first two books in order to still be able to read and understand the stories main plot points. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for something a bit different than your typical YA Fiction novel.
