    Highly recommended

    I recommend that you read this book because you¿ll be hooked from chapter one. Skurzynski adds twist after twist to this thrilling book. Corgan the main character is a goody-two-shoe, until he meets Sharla the rebel who is also one of his two team-mates. His second team mate is a mutant genius. Brig was raised in the mutant pen until the supreme council found out he was an extreme strategist. The three were raised separately but were born in the same lab. They fought the virtual war. The virtual war determined which sector would get the Isles of Hiva. When Corgan moves to the Isles of Hiva Sharla goes with him for only a short while and hints that she may have cheated to help them win. Sharla returns soon later with one of the two perfect clones of Brig, because the virtual war may have to be refought because the supreme councils think someone might have cheated. Skurzinski sure knows how to throw in a twist to the storyline every time you think things will work out for Corgan. This book will have you on the edge of your seat in many chapters even just a paragraph might have you trying to read faster. You aren¿t the only one who gets tripped up over a twist in the story. Corgan gets tricked many times. After finishing ¿Devastation¿ you won¿t be able to wait to read ¿After war¿ the second and last book of the ¿virtual war series¿. This book is most likely for anyone who enjoys science fiction but would probably suit a lot of other readers also.

    Great YA Speed Read!

    I was thrilled to read Devestation, an exciting take on a dystopian future. Instead of bogging her readers down with tons of description right out of the gate, the author fills you in gradually as Corgan, her protaganist, learns more about the world he's been genetically engineered to save. Corgan is flawed - spoiled, lonely, selfish, and totally gullible; but he is a product of his upbringing - in a box, nurtured by a computer program that meets his every need but only tells him what he needs to know. I will say by way of critisism that the main character, Corgan, and indeed all the characters, lack a certain depth. I am always wanting more from them; but at the same time, I don't care because the book moves along so quickly with so many twists and eye openers that it keeps you guessing. I feel like I am willingly chasing Corgan from one situation to the next just to find out what will happen next. I am pleased to recommend this book. It's fun and fast. A great read for a sci fi fan or just someone young at heart!
