Hurray!, August 5, 2003 Reviewer: Priscilla Stafford from Yokohama, Japan All the Net Force Explorers are excited to visit the annual computer gamers' convention in Los Angeles. One of the top new computer game designers, young Peter Griffeth, is about to give a preview of his newest creation. But monsters from his game attack Matt Hunt and Maj Greene in virtual reality, then they are almost kidnapped in real life! Something is going on and it's up to the Net Force Explorers to figure out what. But their mysterious foes are turning out to be dangerous and violent, people who will do anything to achieve their evil goals. Will the NFEs be able to solve the mystery before it's 'game over'? I'm a BIG fan of the Net Force Explorers series! The NFE series are a great Young Adult fiction series, especially those with a love for computers and the Internet. Since the Net presented in the books have no boundaries, you will never know what to expect next. But there IS one thing you can come to expect: stories that have plenty of twists and turns, having the whole plot well balanced with mystery, excitement, and adventure. And sometimes, there's a good romance! The Net Force Explorers include Matt Hunter, Megan O'Malley, Leif Anderson, Andy Moore, Mark Gridley, David Gray, Maj Greene, Caitlin Murray, and P.J. Farris. Occasionally other characters are introduced though they show up rarely. One of the reasons I find this book to be one of the best is that the action and excitement start from basicaly page one of the book. A page turner, "Gameprey" has in my opinion the most action put in any of the Net Force Explorers Series. Another point in "Gameprey"'s favor is that ALL of the NFEs are in this book! From my favorite characters Leif, the smartest NFE Mark, to the jokester Andy, everyone's involved in this mystery. Another interesting aspect in the book is that we're given the viewpoints of the bad guys, too though Maj Greene is the main character. The series is for Young Adults and I strongly recommend only older kids since at times the computer and Net 'talk' is a bit confusing and hard for younger kids to understand. I can highly recommend the whole series! One little thing, though VERY small. There's a typo on page 125, around the upper middle half of the page. The word 'by' is used instead of the correct form, 'buy'. Just a little nitpickers trivia.
