In the future, everyone role-plays, cosplaying as their favorite characters—at home, at work, at school, at play. Called Hyper-reality, and assisted by virtual reality and holographic technology, what is normal is blurring.
Zach, a small-town kid, becomes heir to the largest Hyper-reality company. He is thrust into the battle for control of the future: who owns these characters and who pays?
But what Zach doesn’t know is that reality itself is at stake.
Guided by Coyote, accompanied by his friends, harried by Thentics, and stalked by Mr. Zander, Zach must find a way to bring back this world’s true reality.
