Description
Plug back into the dangerous world of virtual gaming, in the next thrilling novel from the author of Arena.

Kali Ling has faced down death hundreds of times for the entertainment of millions. She knows fear—and she knows what’s truly terrifying...

There’s a new game in town. A brutal, winner-takes-all, international video game tournament showcasing the world’s most elite players, promising fame, prestige, and unbelievable fortune. But there’s a catch. The game uses new VR pods guaranteed to push digital warriors to their physical and psychological brink—adapting every time a gamer makes a move.
 
As the first female captain and youngest team owner in VGL history, Kali is used to defying the odds. But as the all-star tournament heats up, her determination begins to waver and the pressures of media, sponsors, and the game itself begin to put cracks in her hard-set convictions—and strain on her relationship with the one person who matters most.
 
If Kali and her teammates are to survive, they’ll have to find a way to be stronger than ever before. But battling the system may prove too difficult for even the most hardened of fighters...

        April 15, 2017

        Virtual reality (VR) is all the rage in 2055, and professional video gamers enjoy the celebrity status of movie stars and millionaires. The first female captain of a pro team, Kali King also made history as the league's youngest owner when she bought Team Defiance. Now her world is not just fun and games, it's also media, sponsors, publicity, and negotiations. She faces her greatest challenge when the team is invited to an all-star tournament at the Wall, an exclusive and mysterious compound. The twist, however, lies in the new VR pods that actually adapt to gamers' actions and emotions. Team Defiance is used to fighting against the odds, but as things heat up through the training and the tournament levels, will Kali be able to handle the demands of team ownership and the strain on her personal relationships? VERDICT This sequel to Arena is just as action-packed and fast-paced as its predecessor. Fans of VR, gaming, and strong female leads will be interested in this futuristic novel.--KC

        Kali Ling, warrior and undisputed queen of the RAGE tournaments, is back! At the end of Arena (2016), Kali left the Virtual Gaming League to pursue her dream of cleaning up corruption in pro gaming. She sets up a house and training center for herself and her friends, becoming the youngest team owner in eSports history. As manager and captain, Kali is anxious about her new responsibilities to the team and its sponsors. Suddenly, a secretive Japanese company specializing in artificial intelligence announces a major competition and begins inviting elite teams from around the world to participate. The tournament will employ a new technological advance that could change professional gaming forever and be sponsored by VGL. When Kali receives an invitation, she is excited for Team Defiance, yet she is also very wary. The first-ever international tournament with a huge monetary prize, and her team can be part of it. Is there something sinister in play or will Kali lead Defiance to victory again? Fans eager for more battle action will be thoroughly entertained.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
