When reading a book, it is important to consider the audience being targeted. The charm of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time or J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books are evident even when the composition is not at an adult level. Simply written books have their own appeal, as in the case of Mutation, the second volume in the .hack//Another Birth series: a quest in the fantasy game The World strives to discover why some players have fallen into mysterious comas. From official release/information:
From back of book: Akira Hayami, called BlackRose, continues fighting to rescue her brother's consciousness from The World--the largest online fantasy game ever created. But when our heroine stumbles across a clue in the Epitaph of Twilight, her mysterious adventure takes a perilous turn, wreaking havoc in the real world.
Written from BlackRose's perspective this adaptation of the popular .hack series of games is the next installment of yet another hit .hack novel series.
