Frags picks up with Gabby living with the Frags and trying to find out what happens to the contestants that don't beat LifeGame. In particular, she’s trying to find her friend Zaela, who has disappeared without a trace when she did not receive a high score in LifeGame. Now Gabby has become the (reluctant) leader of the Frags, and is leading the effort to find the missing contestants. The journey is long and difficult, and often brings unexpected surprises along the way. With every horrific discovery, Gabby seems to get a step further from uncovering the truth behind the disappearances.
The only truth she does find leaves her with a broken heart.
Frist, I thought the first book-- Gamers-- was awesome. I'm not a huge sci-fi fan, but this one combines the best of science fiction with a dystopian setting. Instant awesomeness.
There are some super shady characters, especially the head Coder. He is constantly following Gabby and the Frags, trying to capture them for some evil, ill purposed reason. Gabby is the main character and leader of the Frags (even when she doesn’t want to be). She’s strong and caring, even when she is compulsive and irrational. She is flawed, and I love that. She doesn’t always make the best decisions, and she comes to terms with the consequences of her actions in a very believable way.
Frags has been action packed since the first chapter, with no lulls. Every page has offered a new segment in the plot. It’s a page turner! Normally, I am a pro at figuring out plots, but this one had me stumped. I can honestly say I don't know where the book was heading. I was guessing all the way until the end, which really caught me by surprise. Needless to say, there was a cliffhanger ending that will leave you guessing.
