The virtual world of Mentior is evolving from a MMORPG to a platform for virtual life. Schools, offices, and parks can be accessed without leaving home thanks to a device placed on the back of the neck.
Lea's father abandoned her family after her brother's death two months ago. Through Mentior, she tries to hunt him down; but she isn't alone. Aiding in her quest is Herm1t, someone Lea can't help falling for. Even if they've never met in real life.
Lea's hunt is interrupted by a hacker calling himself Short Code. He claims Lea's father was behind expunged horrors involved in the testing of Mentior's tech. Worst of all, he thinks killing Lea is the best way to exact his revenge on her father.
Who is Short Code, really? What happened in the days leading to Mentior's release? And what, if anything, does Lea's father have to do with it?
