When I read the summary, I thought this could either be a bad version of Tron or a book that blossoms into its own. Luckily this was the latter. The plot was good; it was slow in a few places, but overall fairly fast. The only real drawback I saw was that the characters were not very well developed. Maybe it's the age difference between myself and the characters or that it's the first book in the series. Either way, I have the remaining four books so I intend to find out.
