  • This novel is centered on a virtual world called the VirtNet. Michael, the main character, can enter this world through "The Coffin" in his room. Although it was very expensive, his box is one of few which allows him to feel everything around him as if it were real. He has two friends, Bryson and Sarah who support him through his adventures of delving through the code in the game to hack and get through obstacles.
  • Guardians/Helpers/Mentors
  • What happened?
  • Michael is ambushed in an alleyway while walking to school by two men in strange suits. He is brought to a facility where a woman named Agent Weber talks to him about catching Kaine, someone who is tormenting people in the VirtNet using what's called "The Mortality Doctrine." She tells Michael that after seeing what Michael has done, they believe he is the only qualified person to complete the job. Michael is terrified of what Weber has told him, but he agrees and sets off with his friends.
  • You're not alone.
  • After hacking through an adult's only game in the VirtNet, Michael, Bryson and Sarah end up in the tundra where crazy people and battles rage all around them. They are armed with guns which they soon learn don't work, and must find knives scattered around to kill people and attempt to find The Path. There are hundreds of trenches, and they must go through each, focus and see the code within the game, and decide if there are any entrances within the trench. With all the battles raging, they are dragged into many, and they must hack abilities into them from other parts of the game. After searching for several days, getting killed and starting over, they finally find the trench which contains The Path. Before entering The Path through the Trench, the trio must kill everyone protecting it. One man, the threshold guardian warns Michael, saying, "'Be careful with Kaine. He's not who you think,'" before he dies. With that, Michael goes through a portal into the unknown world, The Path.
  • Michaels helpers along his journey are his friends, Bryson and Sarah. His mentor and guardians are Agent Weber and the VNS. They are the people who ensure his safety and interject at the worst moments of Michael's journey.
  • Thanks. I'm fine now.
  • The Hallowed Ravine
  • This is useless. We'never going to reach the end.
  • I'm a Tangent too!
