Did you like Ender Wiggan? Well, here he comes again, updated for this century. A marvelous tale.
"A band of warriors is raised from infancy in ignorance of the real world, raised in a virtual reality environment of endless battle where they grow into superb soldiers. But as war breaks out in the real world between Japan and China, the puppet masters who control their lives tighten the leash. Their virtual scenarios become maps of reality, and their strategies are acted out by real battle units. But Cat, Trickster, Dreamer, Snake, and the others don't know it. All they have ever known is the endless settings of the virtual world.
And then they discover the real world, their real bodies held prisoner in a secret military facility. They decide to reclaim themselves and enter the real war."

A uniques and bizarre twist on the cyber-realm idea of science fiction. A truly thought-provoking read.

A excellent read, very interesting twist on virtual reality.

A group of kids raised inside virtual reality. instead of a standard wires in the brain and a body in a bed, Tom cool comes up with a new twist. Wireless connections in the brain and an environment where the kids actually move around. Throw in a secret military project and a few mistakes makes for a good plot with interesting out come.

I highly recommend reading this book!
