  • An intelligent computer game with a disturbing agenda.

    When 16-year-old Nick gets a package, he wonders if it will explain the behavior of his classmates, who have been secretive lately. The package contains the mysterious computer game Erebos. Players 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.

    International praise for Erebos:

    Like the game in the story, this book pulls the reader under its spell and doesn't let go until the puzzle is solved.

    -- Eselsohr
