In sci-fi author Sam Landstrom's MetaGame, he creates a believable but disturbing world with fewer than six degrees of separation. In fact, every single person, product, pastime, and proclivity humans take part in is interconnected. Life is the Game - and winners never die. In the Game, points amount to currency and top scorers are eligible for immortality. A mysterious, unifying force, the OverSoul, calls the shots, and an individual player's health contract can be indefinitely extended - and with the offer of a permanent 20-year-old's body and health, it's with fanaticism that gamers play the Game.
D_Light is one of the best players in his family and will do anything to win, even kill. When he's invited to a MetaGame - an exclusive, high-stakes competition - he jumps at the chance. But after the first quest, D_Light's overly ambitious ways brand him a renegade. With a warped sense of free will that is needed to prevail, D_Light must either kill someone he's grown to love - or lose everything.
