Children's LiteratureIn this fourth book in the series "Pendragon: Journal of an Adventure through Time and Space" Bobby Pendragon must save people in the territory of Veelox from what seems to them like a perfect world. There everyone can and does escape into an electronically-induced dream state where they live out all their best fantasies. Sounds good, but the fantasy world becomes so addictive, people refuse to leave it. The homes and businesses of Veelox are deserted. As if that weren't enough, St. Dane, the ultimate villain who seeks to destroy all humanity, twists a Reality Bug that has invaded the system so that ideal dreams become terrifying nightmares. The awful dreams will not stop unless Bobby and his few allies learn the origin code and defeat St. Dane, who has many tricks to confound them. Bobby is a 14-year-old who was leading an average teenage life on Second Earth until he learns he is destined to be a Traveler, one of just a few people with the power to travel through time and space to save the territories from St. Dane. Each book in the series includes the action-packed journal Bobby sends back to his two friends at home, along with what the friends are doing on Second Earth to help him.
