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."
