Tarek Ortzen wants what any twelve-year-old kid wants, a day to himself so he can play games in his gaming booth. He gets his chance when he signs up for the role of Stone in the latest war game, Warriors of the Edge. He figures the game will help him escape the real world and its troubles. But after one day of nonstop play, Tarek wishes he’d never heard of Warriors of the Edge. The game has brought nothing but trouble into his life. When the game begins to blur the line between reality and fantasy, Tarek finds himself caught between those who believe in the game and those who oppose it. Is the game trying to warn him of danger or lead him into it? Tarek doesn’t know who to believe.
As Tarek’s home world faces the threat of destruction, he must determine whether the character he plays can make a difference in their real lives.
