This fantasy thriller, about teenagers discovering a very unusual computer game, is fast paced, imaginative, easy reading, and keeps you guessing till the last chapter.
Jamie had problems!
The virtual reality computer game encrouched on his real life well and truly when he mentally zotted a mosquito with an energy blast from his finger, and it worked! He could have rationalised the athleticism, or the healed bruises, but this was something else.
And when that troublemaker Lance bought a copy, things got complicated. He had to include more of his friends to play Lance’s team.
Now his mate Kevin was ranting about voices outside his bedroom trying to coerce him into the game. And that mysterious game character who popped up everywhere looked much like the shopkeeper who had sold them the game.
He wasn’t sure about Joel’s loyalties either. Fortunately he could rely on Elizabeth and Nick. Although it didn’t help that Nick was a compulsive flirt, despite Elizabeth ignoring the attention.
Yes the game was fascinating, but he could see that it could be very dangerous in the wrong hands.
He was going to have to do something about it. He just didn’t know what.
I would describe Reality Threshold as a fantasy thriller for a young adult audience. It unlocks a world of possibilities, but it's anchored in reality and teenage angst.
