And what he and Kat discovered there was more terrifying than they could have ever imagined.

The technology is so advanced that it's deadly.Now the world's biggest tech corporation is hunting Simon and Kat while war rages in Otherworld, the virtual world it created.

But as they battle to save two worlds, they uncover an all-new threat to our world: the Company's latest creation, an augmented-reality game called OtherEarth.
