Description

A fast-paced and gripping near-future science fiction debut about the gritty world of competitive gaming... Every week, Kali Ling fights to the death on national TV. She's died hundreds of times. And it never gets easier... The RAGE tournaments-the Virtual Gaming League's elite competition where the best gamers in the world compete in a no-holds-barred fight to the digital death. Every bloody kill is broadcast to millions. Every player is a modern gladiator-leading a life of ultimate fame, responsible only for entertaining the masses. And though their weapons and armor are digital, the pain is real. Chosen to be the first female captain in RAGE tournament history, Kali Ling is at the top of the world-until one of her teammates overdoses. Now, she must confront the truth about the tournament. Because it is much more than a game-and even in the real world, not everything is as it seems. The VGL hides dark secrets. And the only way to change the rules is to fight from the inside... From the Hardcover edition.

Professional reviews

"With her versatile voice, narrator Erin Spencer brings to life the many facets of a young woman who is under enormous pressure. Kali Ling is the epitome of an electronic gamer--young, smart, and tough. She's captain of the highly rated Team Defiance, the first female captain in the Virtual Gaming League's RAGE tournament. But Kali also has her demons. When a teammate dies from a drug overdose, Kali is tasked with working in a new team member and advancing Defiance through the tourney. Spencer is equally adept at portraying Kali's teammates, male or female, by raising or lowering her pitch. She's the perfect guide as the listener proceeds through the levels of this riveting production. D.E.M. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
