Mercer may seem like your average eighth-grader, but every day during study hall, he rolls the dice and conquers the world in Wizards of the Warrior World, a fantasy role- playing game. In the game, Mercer is Shath?dra, sixth-level Warrior-Mage, fighting to survive and gain wealth and power. Mercer lives for the excitement of the game, until one day when reality becomes even stranger than fantasy. When a group of religious fanatics protest the game for its simulated use of magic, the press picks up on the story, and Mercer finds himself being stalked by four real-life wizards who are desperate for his help. With his life suddenly in danger, role-playing takes on a whole new meaning for Mercer Dickensen.

Review quote

The tale moves along briskly to a rousing, twisty finish. Gamers and general light comedy fans will love it. ("Kirkus Reviews")
