Summary
The breathtaking sequel to the multistarred Epic !

Ghost is part of a street hacker airboard gang who lives to break rules. When they realize that their world--Saga--is being periodically invaded by strange human beings, they don't know what to do. That is, until they learn the complicated truth: Saga is not just their world. It is a sentient computer game, the replacement to Epic on New Earth, and it's addictive. The Dark Queen who controls Saga is trying to enslave both its people and the people of New Earth. And she'll succeed unless Ghost and her friends--and Erik, from Epic , and his friends--figure out what to do.

Watch a QuickTime trailer for this book.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In the sequel to Epic (2007), a Booklist Top 10 Fantasy for Youth, the Dark Queen infiltrates New Earth's central computer system, erasing the role-playing game called Epic. It's replaced with Saga, designed to enslave New Earth's populace. In Saga, Ghost, a 15-year-old girl with no memory of her first 9 years, is part of an anarcho-punk airboard gang. Strange things have been happening in Saga strangers are appearing, then disappearing into thin air and Ghost's gang eventually learns what readers already know: Saga is not a real world but a sentient computer game. When Eric arrives in Saga as his avatar Cindella Dragonslayer, he joins forces with Ghost and her gang to stop the Dark Queen from destroying New Earth. Though this adventure sustains the suspense of its predecessor, the replacement of magical Epic (with its strong resemblance to real-world computer games) with the more mundane Saga may disappoint some returning readers. Another sequel is planned, and it will definitely be interesting to see where Kostick goes from here.--Estes, Sally Copyright 2008 Booklist"
