Jurassic Park meets virtual gaming in a blockbuster new thriller!

You’re 14 and find yourself on your own. Your father, who has developed the world’s cutting edge research on virtual electronic game-playing, has been missing for weeks. And suddenly you’re being hunted by men with guns, your picture is on the news, and, worst of all, something seemingly impossible is chasing you—a savage, man-eating dinosaur. How can that be? Why is everyone trying to capture you? And what is your strange connection with this 21st-century prehistoric monster?

Steve Cole has created an absurdly gripping and kid-friendly thriller that will capture imaginations. If Jurassic Park were to meet Alex Rider, the result might well be this irresistible new novel.

About the Author:

Steve Cole lives in Great Britain.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–9—Adam's dad, a single father, is always on the verge of success. He's a computer programmer who has been working on the creation of an ultra-reality video game where the actions are created by sensors that detect the players' thoughts and commands. He leaves his 13-year-old son for what he promises will only be a couple of days to meet with a company interested in backing his project. When he doesn't return after nine days, Adam begins to worry. But nothing in his imagination could prepare him for what comes knocking at his door. It's like a scenario from a movie or a video game: men with guns, dark sedans, mysterious messages, and a man-eating dinosaur that destroys everything in its path and, oh, by the way, can make itself invisible. Cole has created a likable character who manages to come out on top in an extraordinary situation. The science aspects offer an interesting perspective and dilemma for a discussion on genetic engineering. In addition, the adventure, video gaming, and the perilous, sometimes bloody scenes will capture reluctant readers who may not normally devour their reading materials.—Genevieve Gallagher, Buford Middle School, Charlottesville, VA END
