Fun romp through a world where fan-fervor creates power that can be tapped by empowered geeks. The central characters are fun and interesting, although my suspension of disbelief was strained by the coincidences and happenstance at times.

Still, it felt like a very geeky homage-montage mix of everything from Gaiman's Neverwhere to the early days of D&D with hefty swathes of every genre movie, TV show, comic, or cartoon from my generation.

And it didn't hurt to find a personal geekish-pride moment where Ree, the central character, takes a moment to leaf through The D&D Cyclopedia (the book that kept editor-me inside and working on tight deadline all through the summer of 1991...and of which I'm still very proud).
