Publisher's Summary

Jake and his friends must fight for survival when his virtual world takes on a mind of its own....

In the near future, virtual reality games are indistinguishable from the real world. Players can take on the role of a star quarterback or rule as the king of a virtual kingdom.

Thirteen-year-old Jake prefers to spend his free time building Xaloria, a virtual world he created from scratch, where he and his two best friends, Des and Kari, spend their afternoons completing quests and collecting treasure.

However, all in Xaloria is not what Jake expected. When Jake discovers that the world he built is growing and changing on its own, he and his friends uncover a secret that could change the world forever....

    "Awesome Gamer Action Book"

    Jake has build a cool new Virtual Reality (VR) game and gets his friends to play, but when their friend Kari doesn't come out of Xaloria and the police start asking questions, Jake and Des go back to find out where she is and bring her home. What they don't count on is the that the non player character have taken over the game and want out and have Kari, trapped until someone helps them out.


    This is a really cool gamer, action book. The VR world that Mr. Ellington has laid out is spectacular, and there is fun, danger, and action around every corner no wonder the kids got hooked so easily I did as well listening to them play the VR game thought the talented voice of Darren Marlar as I had the audio version of the book and if you like audios or want to try one out I suggest this as Mr. Marlar does a heck of a job with the characters in the book and bringing Xaloria alive. This book was great I hope there are more only because I am a total sucker for gamer books and this one was awesome so I'd would love to see more of Jake and his friends in this world.

    "odd story"

    was hard to follow as it was quite slow in a couple areas but the entire thing would have been made better with better voices for the main characters or at least for Jake, i know he's supposed to be a computer nerd but giving him an irritating squeaky voice doesn't make for a good audio book
