Author - John Otte

Content - *May Contain Secrets* Failstate tries to do the right thing and looks to God for help. Struggling with anger towards his brother, Failstate tries to hurt him when his brother teases him or makes him feel less then a hero when Ben tries to steal lime light from Robin. Ben is also egotistical but changes by the end. Failstate is willing to fight for friends, even when that puts himself in danger.
Personal Opinion - Holy Cow, what a book! Okay, there have only been a few books that pull me in as this one did to the point of ignoring those around me. I started reading this one day and read close to 300 pages, planned to stay up all night and finish it I was so enthralled. But had to go to bed and read the last 100 pages the next day. It is also really cool the author lives in the same state as me. :)
Fabulous storyline, characters, adventure, and sci-fi. Failstate's inner journey as well as the physical fight he had to face was amazing and I believed every minute of the book. Even the competition reminded me of reality TV shows we have today. The writer is talented for creating such rounded out characters and intricate story lines that all come together and make sense in the end. I'm glad I heard there are two more books coming out because I want more time with these characters and another fabulous story. So awesome.
Special Notes - Heard there will be two more books in the series. Yay!
