Whitestone, NY (Vocus) October 19, 2010
Mystery, fascinating characters, an exciting plot and a virtual backdrop all set stage for an intriguing and thrilling story authored by Rosemarie Riechel. In this newly released title, readers are taken on an adventurous cybertrip as Erik embarks on a rescue in cyberspace.
When a horrible crackling sound awakens Erik, he sees a red circle glowing in the center of his laptop’s screen. The tortured face of his cousin Molly appears behind the circle—she is lost in cyberspace. Sucked into his computer, Erik begins a heroic journey to find his cousin. Erik is a slightly imperfect superhero who gets caught up in mysterious and awesome events. He meets extraordinary and otherworldly creatures, animated books, monster warriors, a malevolent king, a vile witch, and more. But he is magically instilled with all the knowledge and wisdom he needs to confront every challenge. Tense with the significance of his quest, Erik takes the decisive action required of a conquering hero, with the same studied steps he takes when adding twists and turns to computer programs.
From the first to the last page, readers will find themselves immersed in a fast-paced story filled with action and excitement. A Rescue in Cyberspace is sure to give them one riveting read.
This book will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
