really liked it

It seems that the imagination of D.J. MacHale knows no bounds. Each world that Bobby Pendragon finds himself in is more amazing than the last.

It's finally time for Bobby to face Veelox, the technological territory where everything is supposedly under control. But Veelox's smart, overconfident Traveler Aja may not be as in control as she believes.

On Veelox, everyone is safely ensconced in a virtual reality program called Lifelight, where your perfect fantasies can brought to life. But the reality of Veelox is dying out because no one is living in it anymore. So Aja develops a computer virus called the Reality Bug, designed to gradually ease the population away from the perfection of Lifelight. But viruses are designed to do one thing; cause chaos.

Bobby, with the help of the warrior Loor and the slowly thawing Aja, must go in search of Lifelight's creator, Dr. Zetlin, before the Reality Bug does Saint Dane's bidding...and destroys Veelox.

Bobby's journal narration is as strong as ever, and the concepts of this new world are easy and exciting to jump into. And back on Second Earth, Mark and Courtney are beginning to get the adventures they've been hoping for, as they learn about becoming acolytes. And the ending of this one...well, let's just say I hope I get the next book soon!

D.J. MacHale
“Aja gave Loor an up and down once-over. She then said, "Is Loor a man's name or a woman's name?"
Loor answered, "It is the name of a legendary hero on Zadaa. A woman."
Really?" Aja said. "What did she do that was so heroic?"
She killed her enemies and ate them.”
