At first, Nick is surprised by the sudden change in behavior and secrecy of some of his classmates, but at last he finds himself in the space of the mysterious computer game «Erebos» as well. But the tasks and quests are not only becoming more complex — some of them, senseless at first glance, must be performed in real London life, and «Erebos» grants even Nick’s voiceless wishes for his skill, it knows his friends, his sympathies and even fears. But if you lose, then you lose definitively — there is no return to the game. Then is it possible to cross your own conscience, to lose friends for the game? Where is the boundary between the virtual world and the real one? What is behind «Erebos»: mysticism or still unknown technology? А reader will find answers to these questions, together with the sixteen-year-old Nick Dunmore.

And this teenage nature could not be changed.
