In video games death isn't permanent... or is it?
Hector West is a typical teenager. He plays sports, rides dirt bikes, and hangs out with his friends. But all that changes when his father is killed in Iraq and the family moves back to his mother's dull hometown. Bored and angry, Hector escapes into the online game Omega Wars, where he can reconnect with old friends through his character Izaak Ersatz. At times Hector feels more alive in the freedom of the virtual world than in the pain of real life.
When Izaak is robbed by a rival gamer known as Mal-X, Hector abandons questing and assembles his clan, the Spartans, to find the cheater and take revenge. But it is real life that turns deadly when Hector discovers that Mal-X's clan is actually using Omega Wars to plan and train for something that could bring America to her knees. And only the Spartans can stop them!
