Saving the world is hard.  Saving yourself is even harder.  One summer, fifteen kids innocently wander into a nearby seaside cave.  There they meet a strange man who invites them to play an exciting new video game.  This game, he explains, pits a long giant robot against a horde of alien invaders.  To play the game all they have to do is sign a simple contract.  The game stops being fun when the kids find out the true purpose of their pact.


I liked the first book okay.  It was crazy weird and seemed to have a lot of potential.  Then all of a sudden it got really dark and incredibly sad.  So far each book seems to be focusing on two characters at a time in order of being 'called'.

Little pieces of the mystery of the 'game' are being revealed and nothing is good news.  Each kid has a story and these stories are not of the happy ending variety.  I was planning on moving onto the next book in the Chew series, but I think I'm going to have to finish up this one first.  I have some theories about the monsters they're fighting and I want to see if I'm right!
