It's more than just a book about virtual gaming.
Being in the public eye forces your darkest secrets to surface. Team Defiance will have to conquer their inner demons to make it through the game.
Readers will also venture into the darker parts of drug relapse. Jennings shows how it affects not only the person addicted but the people around them as well. You'll experience the heartbreak addiction causes.
I want more of this world.

Excellent sequal to Arena. Great plot twists and more character development. Some teen drama but mild. Loved it. Hope there is a 3rd!!

This book was just as good as the first. A few times the author hinted at the world around them but didn't go into as much detail as I would have liked.
Hard to say if this is the end of if there will be more books.
