Publisher's Summary

From Dan Wells, author of the New York Times best-selling Partials Sequence and the John Cleaver series, comes the second book in a dark, pulse-pounding sci-fi noir series set in 2050 Los Angeles.

Overworld. It's more than just the world's most popular e-sport - for thousands of VR teams around the globe, Overworld is life. It means fame and fortune, or maybe it's a ticket out of obscurity or poverty. If you have a connection to the Internet and four friends you trust with your life, anything is possible.

Marisa Carneseca is on the hunt for a mysterious hacker named Grendel when she receives word that her amateur Overworld team has been invited to Forward Motion, one of the most exclusive tournaments of the year. For Marisa, this could mean anything - a chance to finally go pro and to help her family, stuck in an LA neighborhood on the wrong side of the growing divide between the rich and the poor. But Forward Motion turns out to be more than it seems - rife with corruption, infighting, and danger - and Marisa runs headlong into Alain Bensoussan, a beautiful, dangerous underground freedom fighter who reveals to her the darker side of the forces behind the tournament. It soon becomes clear that in this game, winning might be the only way to get out alive.

Great for young teens!

Just too juvenile for my taste. A younger audience would love this book. Well narrated.

Enjoyable series continues

I'd say the production it rather the performance is even better on this second book... probably more subjective than objective. Basically the distinction between characters was even more pronounced and the storyline (excitement) was more palplyable. Wishing for the 3rd book to become available on audible soon (in English).

Roxanne really puts dinner life into this book.

I just have to say that it feels strange that Dan Wells writes teenage girls so well, so I'll give a lot of credit to the narrator, she did a great job.

Fun-tastic!

Dan has hit his stride with Ones and Series! Great characters, exciting plot, an exciting look at our future tech, and one weird conversation about religion. not sure it was relevant. read this series, it's really good!
