Everyone said that World War 3 would bring about the end of the human race. Companies control entire nations and wage wars to secure mining and resource rights. However, this war is not being fought over Earth nor being fought on earth. Un-maned spaceships controlled by young kids on earth are fighting over control of the solar system’s riches. These kids are known as the Combatants. Tom, the son of a gambler, is recruited to the elite training program to become a combatant. Along his road to zero to hero he will experience power, helplessness and have an online relationship with an enemy combatant that he is sort-of-not-really stalking. This book is laugh out loud funny in places but also forces us to look at the state of our own world and wonder, Just how far are we from a war such as this?
