Review

Izzy and her friend Eric just can’t wait for Dungeon City to arrive – it’s the most exciting new game out there, and they’ve made a pact to only play it together. Yet the temptation proves too much and Izzy starts to play, only to find that she’s sucked into the game.

Once inside the game, her new robot friend Rae tells her she’s destined to save Dungeon City from the Big Boss, a terrifying monster which has been hidden deep within the code of the game and grown too strong.

Yet as Izzy becomes more and more involved, is she risking her life by being in Dungeon City? And is she neglecting her friendship with Eric?

Sarah Graley’s fantastic and fun games-themed new comic novel is perfect for 8-11s, gaming-mad or not – and reminds readers that real-life friendships are as important as online ones.
