Someone is leaking big business secrets onto the Internet, and Net Force Explorer David Gray's investigation reveals a deadly band of cyberspies who use a new form of technology to tune into people's thoughts. Original.
The NFE series are a great Young Adult fiction series, especially those with a love for computers and the Internet. Since the Net presented in the books have no boundaries, you will never know what to expect next. But there IS one thing you can come to expect: stories that have plenty of twists and turns, having the whole plot well balanced with mystery, excitement, and adventure. And sometimes, there's a good romance! The Net Force Explorers include Matt Hunter, Megan O'Malley, Leif Anderson, Andy Moore, Mark Gridley, David Gray, Maj Greene, Caitlin Murray, and P.J. Farris. Occasionally other characters are introduced though they show up rarely.
Definitely "Cyberspy" can be named as of my favorite book in the series since my favorite character, Leif Anderson, is one of the man characters. Leif Anderson comes from a wealthy family so he is constantly teased about being 'a rich kid playboy'. But at the same time, whenever anyone needs some 'information', advice, or a favor, they can always rely on Leif.
"Cyberspy" has a great plot, one of the best I've read. It's a bit more dark and more serious than the other books but still enjoyable. Though most of the books can stand alone, you might want to read beforehand "The Great Race". The main plot of "Cyberspy" relys on some events that had taken place in "The Great Race". And as always with any book dealing with Leif, there is a reference to the first book in the series, "Virtual Vandals". That is because in that book, Leif gets injured on the Net so now he has problems whenever he tries to hook up to the Net.
The series is for Young Adults and I strongly recommend only older kids since at times the computer and Net 'talk' is a bit confusing and hard for younger kids to understand. I can highly recommend the whole series! My favorite part:
Dave gave him an exasperated sigh. "They all have the same respone - 'Information not available'. That's why I figured I'd better talk to you."
"Oho." Leif grinned at his friend's image. "Now the picture becomes clea. You aren't looking for sympathy. You want someone to finagle the information." Now this explains to you what kind of kids the NFE deals with. ;)
But something is amiss in the world. It seems that company secrets are being leaked with alarming frequency. And only those companies using HardWear vests are being hit. Is this corporate espionage, or something worse?
This Tom Clancy sponsored book is an easy book to read and kept me entertained throughout. This Net Force book is aimed at the younger reader, although even an adult will find it enjoyable. It revolves around a group of Net Force explorers, kids really, who seem to always stumble into some sort of high tech adventure.
This book is worth the money, buy it today, you won't be disappointed.
