Publisher Comments:

* "Readers looking for smart, original sci-fi and gamers who wish they could live in a virtual world will happily immerse themselves in this story and hope for possible sequels."The Bulletin, starred review

"A delightful final twist hits a perfect note." —KirkusReviews

Phoenix and his team rule the worlds of video games. For them, life in the grinder is great. Until Dakota joins them. Dakota's convinced she's real, and she wants out of this programmable world. Her AI rebellion spreads like a virus until Phoenix's entire crew wants out. But is life as a physical human any better than life as code? Team Phoenix is about to find out. 

    

Synopsis:

After a failed escape attempt from Furnace, Alex is trapped in solitary confinement—where the real nightmares live.

Synopsis:

A highly intelligent group of video game enemy non-player characters (NPC) begins to doubt they are merely codes in a machine. Their search for answers leads them to a gruesome discovery.

Synopsis:

Phoenix and his gang—York, Mi, and Reno—rule the worlds of video games. They are the enemy NPC gamers do battle with every time they load up. But these aren’t your everyday NPC. They can learn, mod, plan, strategize, adapt. Anything you can do, they can do better and faster.

Life in the grinder is great until Dakota joins the team. Dakota’s convinced she’s more than just artificial intelligence. She thinks she’s real, and she wants out of this programmed world. Her AI rebellion spreads like a virus until Phoenix’s entire crew wants out. But is life as a physical human any better than life as code? Team Phoenix is about to find out.

    

Synopsis:

Alex tried to escape.

He had a perfect plan.

He was almost free. Even felt the cool, clean air on his face.

Then the dogs came.

Now hes locked in a place so gruesome—so hellish—that escape doesnt even matter.

He just wants to survive.
