Review

Combining Greek mythology with modern technology, Alan Gibbons creates an exciting fantasy adventure. Phoenix is thrilled when he is allowed to test 'The Legendeer', a virtual reality game his father is developing, and wearing a sophisticated bodysuit, he feels as though he's actually part of the mythical world.

The more he plays the harder he finds it to drag himself back to reality and he is drawn ever deeper into the terrifying game. Coming face to face with the fearsome Minotaur, he has to - quite literally - fight for his life.

An inventive, original tale which should appeal to readers aged 11 and over.
