Fourteen-year-old Tom Raines looks set to go the same way as his listless, gambling addict of a father, with no hope for the future -- until one day everything changes. Tom is recruited by the State to become a Combatant: one of an elite group of teen soldiers, chosent for their unique virtual reality skills, to fight World War III in space.
