Rick Dial was the best quarterback Putnam Hills High School had ever seen. Unflappable. Unstoppable. But when a car accident left him crippled, Rick’s life as he knew it ended. He disappeared into his bedroom – and into the glowing video screen.
But Rick’s uncanny gaming skills have attracted attention. Dangerous attention.

The agents want Rick, quick-thinking quarterback and gaming master, to enter the Realm and stop the madman before he sends America into chaos.

On a cool December morning near San Francisco, a distress call was radioed to shore by a local fisherman. He had discovered a humpback whale tangled in hundreds of yards of crab-trap lines, struggling to stay afloat. A team of volunteers answered the call, and four divers risked their lives to rescue the enormous animal.

Inside, she’s a freak. A mix of dark thoughts, diabolical plots, and, if local chatter is to be believed, vampire DNA. After all, her father is from Romania. Everyone else in Nebraska is about as American as an apple pie . . . wrapped in a flag . . . on the Fourth of July.
Spider stew. That’s what Anika is made of. But she keeps it under wraps to maintain her social position. One step out of line and Becky Vilhauser, first most popular girl in school, will make her life a living hell.
