Locked in a never-ending war, the city of Technoburbia strives to emulate the military genius of ancient Sparta. To do so, recruits like 15-year-old Troy will enter Sparta Online, learning the skills and mindset of the Spartan hoplite soldiers of old.
Now, Troy finds himself facing hunger and having to fight with his fellow soldiers for the most basic of equipment. He is sure that death in the simulation would have dire consequences.
But why are the young recruits being sent on increasingly deadly quests, ill-equipped and with no guidance from their captains? And where are all of the previous trainees?
As his questions mount up, Troy begins to realize that his only way out is to play the game . . . and win.
