By day, Dagmar Shaw orchestrates vast games with millions of players spanning continents. By night, she tries to forget the sound of a city collapsing in flames around her. She tries to forget the faces of her friends as they died in front of her. She tries to forget the blood on her own hands.

But then an old friend approaches Dagmar with a project. The project he pitches is so insane and so ambitious, she cant possibly say no. But this new venture will lead her from the world of alternate-reality gaming to one even more complex—a world in which the players are soldiers and spies…and the name of the game is survival.

    " This novel is closer to the book I wanted This Is Not a Game to be, and very relevant to today's headlines about social-media enabled unrest, but could have used more insight about open source warfare from John Robb's excellent nonfiction Brave New War: The Next Stage of Terrorism and the End of Globalization, and a better understanding of network protocols. But it was still enjoyable and thought-provoking. "

    " Tense techno-thriller featuring a "social media" led and managed revolution. There are a few points both technical and political that didn't feel quite plausible enough to me. "

    " The story was engaging, and the plot was intricate, but the ending left a lot to be desired. As much tension as this story had going for it, I ran out of pages to read before the story really ran out. The main bad guys got their comeuppance in about 5 lines, less than 5 pages from the end, and Dagmar's final encounter didn't carry the same immersion or weight as the rest of the story, or the entire previous book. I certainly like the characters in these stories, and might consider reading more with them, but based on this book, that's an iffy proposition for me. "

    " Initially intriguing story and characters. Got bogged down with technical details originally meant to enhance the story but over shadowing it instead. Not a waste of time but not worth a reread either. "
