Paul introduces Scott to two high school friends who just happen to play Warriors & Thieves, Scott's favorite role-playing fantasy game. The game and his new friends provide a much needed escape from both his past and his present troubles...at least for a while. But no matter how hard Scott tries to blend in at school, his pet peeve of bullying and his overwhelming sense of right and wrong continue to push him into the limelight, bringing praises from many, but more opposition from the bullies. When the hazing goes too far Scott decides it is time to take a stand...no matter the cost. Of course, sometimes, that's the price heroes must pay.

Taking games to extreme. This book highlights what a lot of teens go through, and adults seem to turn their blind eye. Yes they try, but the kids are hurting. Not only are their bullies, but we see why they are acting out. Although this is a teen read, I would recommend that parents every where read this. We see first hand how a game can get out of control, and dangerous. There is also the dealing with a lot of grief, the loosing of a parents and grandparents. I found that once I started reading this, I could not put it down. I greatly admired the main character, he is every parents dream child, but dealing with heavy burdens. I received this book through TLC Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
