Excellent pot boiler! Taut writing by Garth Nix and colourful characters mean that this book is a hit.
In a futuristic dystopian world, a reality altering event means all the adults are gone and kids brains are being farmed by the "Overlords" in a sick game. Our heroes go about trying to fight the overlords with the help of AI.
Overall, I was totally hooked and enjoyed it. My only minor problem was with the storyline vaguely being similar to movies from the 60s, but you hardly notice it. The characters get you hooked as you move from scene to scene. The scenes are interrupted by "audio" excerpts from the characters in different scenes - just to provide an interlude. It makes for a great effect as it is not so commonly used, even though its a well known method.

One of the first books I read as a teenager. Garth Nix is still one of my favorite authors now I own the audio and a hard cover. people complain about Charles Carroll but I had no problems with his performance.
