What happens when you take a couple of ordinary 14 year olds, Phoenix and Jade, out of their ordinary, miserable lives and throw them into a computer game - 80AD - AND into their avatar's bodies? Action, adventure, chaos and magic, that's what. Phoenix and Jade aren't kids any longer. They are warriors who must fight to even survive in Roman Britain 1000 years ago. To get home, they have to win Level 1 of the game - but that means going up against the Legions of Rome an all the other nasties the game programmers threw into the mix.
Phoenix glanced at his watch and groaned. 5:30pm. Late. Rising up on the bike pedals, he pushed harder, speeding down the sleepy suburban street. Driveways and front yards flashed past. Neighbours hallooed. He ignored them. If he was late again and Jacob found out….
He pedalled harder.
