Praise
"Kincaid combines a Harry Potter-like teen discovering that he has unknown abilities being sent to a special boarding school with the ENDER'S GAME plotline of humanity's space battles being fought remotely by juveniles. She adds espionage and corporate skullduggery along with multiple mysterious enemies to create a blockbuster of a debut."

Annotation A bloodless outer space World War III, government conspiracies, and virtual reality pull the reader into this fast-moving young adult science fiction novel. Traveling aimlessly between casinos with his gambling father, 14-year-old Tom Raines uses virtual reality gaming to keeping himself and his father sheltered and fed. But when Tom finds himself being wooed by the Pentagonal Spire for his incredible gaming skills, everything changes. The exclusive military academy trains kids to become part of the Intrasolar Forces, who use virtual reality to fight war in space. But things aren't as clear-cut as they seem, and Tom finds himself struggling with allegiances, power struggles, and dangerous enemies.
