From the back cover: This time, there’s no escape from The Realm.
The MindWar Realm is a computerized world created by a deranged terrorist named Kurodar. Built through a link between Kurodar’s mind and a network of supercomputers, The Realm is a pathway through which the madman can project himself into any computer system on the planet.
Twice before, Rick Dial has entered the Realm as a Mind Warrior and come back alive. But now, something has gone terribly wrong. A connection has formed in Rick’s brain that sends him hurtling into The Realm without his consent—and brings the Realm’s monsters into the Real World.
As Kurodar works to turn Rick’s brain to his own purposes, Rick’s waking and sleeping life is ravaged by terrors he never imagined.
Rick knows he has no choice but to face The Realm’s final and most powerful protector. But can Rick destroy MindWar without destroying himself and the people he loves?
Mr. Klavan has written this series with the world’s fascination of computer games at its heart. I don’t know a whole lot about how it works, as I don’t really play, however I do understand that you can play from any computer with any person, whether you know them or not, anywhere in the world. And that they keep upgrading and adding levels to the game all the time. Kurodar is a terrorist who is exploiting this fascination and the heights that can be reached. “Game Over” grabs you with the story-line and keeps you flipping pages as fast as possible. Mr. Klavan has given us a very interesting character in Rick and he makes us care for him all throughout the book. Don’t start this book late at night because you are going to want to finish it before you go to bed. A high-octane suspenseful thriller.
