Well, there doesn't seem to be any synopsis on Goodreads (odd), so I'll have to give a run down of the book before I can say what I think so far.
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. In Gamers, the main character-- Gabby-- has to survive LifeGame to get the ultimate coding job. But there is something amiss about LifeGame and the Coders. Not to mention that anyone that doesn't "win" the game disappears to the mysterious unknown. Enter Gabby's best friend Z. She doesn't win LifeGame. In a fit of panic, Gabby leaves the city and is picked up by a group of rogues called Frags.
This book picks up with Gabby living with the Frags and trying to find out what happens to the contestants that don't beat LifeGame. There are some super shady characters, especially the head Coder. They are constantly following Gabby and the Frags, trying to capture them for some evil, ill purposed reason.
And that's where I'm at so far. Normally, I am a pro at figuring out plots, but this time I am stumped. I can honestly say I don't know where there is heading. Gabby has gone rogue, but I can't shake the feeling that she's not really alone. Oh, and btw... Gabby is awesome. She's brilliant, defiant, but also caring and extremely conflicted. The other characters are great as well. Except for one. I can't figure Mouse out. She seems to be the weakest link, but I hope I'm wrong.
So far, this one is another 4. It has been action packed since the first chapter, with no lulls. I love that. It's a total page turner. If you like Scott Westerfield's Pretties series, you would like this series. It has a similar feel, but has nothing in common with the latter.
