For Lance, life is a battle, and then you die...sort of. Actually, after you die, you "rez," then you battle again. At least that's how it is in Discordia, the addictive online game that makes real life seem dreary by comparison. At his new school, Lance feels weird and out of place, but in the beautiful and complex world of Discordia, his zombie sorcerer alter ego is doing really well: leveling fast, learning new skills, and making friends. He's even met a level 60 toon, TheGreatOne, who has recruited him and his online friend MrsKeller into his guild: Awoken Myths. But when the guild turns out to be a portal into the real Discordia, a perilous world in the 11th dimension, Lance must compete in a high-level quest if he wants to get out alive. If he fails, he could permanently mutate into the character he plays in the game: a zombie! Dena Salmon's alternate gaming-world reality is seamless and packed with suspense. This perfect marriage of fantasy and real-life virtual technology is sure to win fans for the series.
