Description

Alan Gibbons takes us into Greek mythology in most exciting way with a powerful novel about a present-day boy, Phoenix, the son of a computer geek who creates a virtual reality game that gets a bit too real. In playing the game, Phoenix becomes Theseus pursued by the Minotaur, becomes Perseus and confronts the Gorgon, and goes down into the Underworld with Orpheus. His terrifying adventures are interwoven with the difficult reality of his life at home and at his new school. As always, Alan Gibbons writes with extraordinary understanding about contemporary children - but this time moves on to an action-packed and thrillingly dangerous story of fantasy worlds.show more
