    A group of teenage friends immerse themselves in a virtual-reality game that seems, the deeper they go into the game, to be able to sense their fears and secret needs, as well as manipulate their lives. What starts as an exhilarating, original, challenging game becomes something approaching a murderous nightmare. Tobey's third novel, after The Faculty Club (2010) and The Surrogate (2013), is a wild ride indeed. As the teens get deeper into the game, they realize that there is someone or something behind the controls who is demanding subservience from the players. Obey me, they are told. With a pace that is fast but not too fast (the author slows down to allow us a good long look at the characters) and a story that keeps the reader in a constant state of suspense, the book is sure to appeal to SF readers, gamers, and anyone else who enjoys a well-plotted, well-told thriller.
