Welcome to the Mindwar Book Tour hosted by YA Bound Book Tours!!!
Summary from Goodreads:
Rick Dial has the potential to be a hero. He just doesn’t know it yet.
Rick’s high school football team couldn’t be stopped when he was leading them as their quarterback. He was going to Syracuse on a scholarship. But then his dad abandoned them and a terrible accident left him crippled.
Certain his old life is completely lost, Rick spends months hiding away in his room playing video games. He achieves the highest scores on so many games that he’s approached by a government agency who claims to be trying to thwart a cyber attack on America that would destroy the technological infrastructure of the entire country. The agents say that the quick-thinking of a quarterback coupled with Nick’s gaming experience make him perfect for this assignment. The problem is that there are no extra lives and this isn’t just a game . . . but Rick doesn’t have many other options at the moment.
Entering “The Realm” gives Rick the one thing he thought he’d never have again: a body that’s as fast and as strong as he ever was before the accident. But the more time he spends in The Realm, the more questions he has. What secrets are these agents keeping from him? What really happened to his father? How many others have gone into The Realm already . . . and failed? And perhaps most important, is he the hero they think he is?
Words cannot express how much I love Andrew Klavan books!!!
Amazing does not even begin to describe his latest novel…Mindwar.
Rick Dial is a stellar character to head this latest series- I completely empathized with him from the beginning, he has really been through so much in his life. But he is such a strong character! He is the perfect example of what happens when your world falls apart and how to begin to rebuild again.
Video games sometimes get a bad rap, but I’m thrilled that Klavan has integrated it into his story in such a unique and creative way! I think readers will be thrilled as I was.
Like all of Klavan’s books, this one kept me on the edge of my seat, turning pages. It’s fast-paced and action-packed. In the end, I wanted to stand up and cheer!!!
I cannot wait for the next installment in the series!
