From National Best-selling author J. Steven York -
Fools walk where SysGods fear to tread...
In a stagnated and decadent future, the Virtch is all they have left. The Virtch is a world computer network, shared virtual-reality, and life itself. Life outside it, the Real, is only a colorless shadow by comparison. But humanity has lost itself in these virtual places, and nobody remembers how the system works. Even the Sysgods dare not touch the core-code, lest their virtual worlds collapse.
In virtual spaces where everyone flies, one man, Jodd finds the courage to bring himself down to earth, to walk beneath virtual skies, find lost secrets of the heart, and regain his lost humanity.
But if there can still be true-love in the Virtch, what about true-friendship? Jodd holds the keys to the lost secrets of the Virtch. To use them, he and his new love must reunite with three childhood friends. But one of those friends hides a terrible secret. And another wants only revenge; to destroy his old-friends and the Virtch itself!
The power to become Virtual Gods is within their grasp, to remake the Virtch, or to destroy it.
But only if they can avoid killing each other first!
