The lines between reality and fantasy blur in this stunning thriller ... a prescient page-turner and a provocative, believable portrayal of the seductive world of virtual gaming. ... the scary climax, a romantic subplot and plenty of thoroughly credible gaming add proper spark to a pageturner with amps aplenty. From its opening notes of eerie virtual landscapes, to its mesmerizing conclusions, EREBOS is a nuanced thriller that weaves effortlessly between reality and virtual space, bringing its protagonists closer to the brink of destruction-or salvation-with every turn of the page. It's a solid purchase where gaming is popular--in other words, most libraries.--Hayden Bass"School Library Journal" (07/01/2012) This book will appeal not only to gamers, but to any fan of suspense and adventure. This is an excellent addition to any collection serving teens.--Bethany Martin"VOYA" (06/13/2012) Poznanski's thriller effectively plays off the difficulty of balancing online and real-life personae, and the all-too-possible idea that gamers are being secretly shaped into an unwitting army is indeed a scary one.--Daniel Kraus"Booklist" (03/01/2012) Erebos is a page-turner of a book.--Patty Osborne"Geist" (06/04/2012) Nevertheless, the depiction of gaming raises a host of provocative questions about its prevalence in popular culture, and the book will likely appeal to fans of Cory Doctorow.--Jonathan Hunt"Horn Book" (06/15/2012) A literary marvel.--Kara Smith"Professionally Speaking" (09/01/2012) As a middle-aged non-gamer, observing this process was fascinating: I became as addicted to the book as the characters are to the game!--Patricia Jermey"Resource Links" (04/01/2012) Erebos is a tightly plotted, suspenseful novel that draws the reader into its world.--Kate Sweeney"Baltimore's Child" (10/01/2012) I was super impressed by this book. I thought I had found a treasure when I was reading the Feyland trilogy, but this was even better... The author did a terrific job of crafting surprises. She held my attention without underestimating my intelligence, and I didn't feel like I'd been taken through a convoluted labyrinth, simply for the sake of distraction and in hopes of preserving the punch line. The story was astonishingly straightforward and yet still fascinating. This one grabbed me from page one, and it's a rare treat that I recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy, mythology, gaming, urban fantasy, or an engaging story.--Kelly Truelove"Good Reads" (03/16/2013)Reseña del editor:
When 16-year-old Nick receives a package containing the mysterious computer game Erebos, he wonders if it will explain the behavior of his classmates, who have been secretive lately. Players of the game must obey strict rules: always play alone, never talk about the game, and never tell anyone your nickname. Curious, Nick joins the game and quickly becomes addicted. But Erebos knows a lot about the players and begins to manipulate their lives. When it sends Nick on a deadly assignment, he refuses and is banished from the game. Now unable to play, Nick turns to a friend for help in finding out who controls the game. The two set off on a dangerous mission in which the border between reality and the virtual world begins to blur. This utterly convincing and suspenseful thriller originated in Germany, where it has become a runaway bestseller.
