When her young brother suddenly becomes quite unresponsive whilst at a friend's house, not long after she caught him getting up to illegal activities, she becomes convinced that the Net is involved. Renie and her friend! Xabbu a Bushaman embark on a mystery trail to try and unwind the virtual realities, simulations, dimensions and stories which might lead them to find out more about how to help Stephen her brother.
That is the main story anyways Alongside that we also have Christabel a young girl whose family seem to underestimate her and the old man she visits who is certainly somehow involved. We have Orlando and Frederich friends via the Net although they have never met, and Orlando has a very rare condition which means he's dying. And Paul a wanderer with memory-loss who is struggling to understand his new reality and decipher his past along the way.
They are the main characters, although we meet more and more along the way including Gods, new races, disembodied voices, tribes of child monkeys and much more it's a wacky world.
I thought these all really helped to flesh out the story even more.
And some of the sections are told in second-person which I have to say can be very creepy and disturbing at times as you feel that you're really in the story a pretty cool feature. Basically this book surprised, captivated and enchanted me, disturbed, intrigued and shocked me all at different moments and I do really want to know what will happen to our characters next.
I fully intend to go on to the next book soon and I would highly recommend this. Just know, going into it, that it's vivid and exciting but it's ultimately a set up book and the story is fast-paced and slow-paced at different intervals.
The best minds of two generations have labored to build it. Only a few have become aware of the danger.
Fewer still are willing or able to take up the challenge of this perilous and seductive realm. But every age has its heroes, and unusual times call for unusual champions: Renie Sulaweyo, a teacher and the backbone of her family, proud of her African heritage, has fought all her life simply to get by.
She has never wanted to be a hero. But when her young brother is struck down by a bizarre and mysterious illness, Renie swears to save him.
When people around her begin to die, she realizes she has stumbled onto something she is not meant to know, a terrifying secret from which there is no turning back. Xabbu is a Bushman, come to the city to learn skills which may save the spirit of his tribe. With the heart of a poet and the soul of a shaman, he will journey with Renie on this quest into the very heart of darkness.
Paul Jonas is lost, seemlingly adrift in space and time.
