    Juvenile horror novels don't always feature a lesson, but the Shadow Zone series usually has some deeper thought to impart. In Revenge of the Computer Phantoms, the lesson stems from the actions of sixth-grader Mike Willis, whose enthusiasm for video games lands him in hot water after he acquires a bootleg disk of a game called Phantom Quest. Hacker, a friend of Mike's who sends him the copied disk, includes a note of warning in the package.

In Revenge of the Computer Phantoms, the lesson stems from the actions of sixth-grader Mike Willis, whose enthusiasm for video games lands him in hot water after he acquires a bootleg disk of a game called Phantom Quest. Hacker, a friend of Mike's who sends him the copied disk, includes a note of warning in the package. There's something weird about the Phantom Quest bootleg, he cautions. Kids who play it become obsessed to the point of attempting dangerous stunts to enhance their experience. Mike is mildly concerned by Hacker's note, but he can't afford a legitimate copy of Phantom Quest. He accesses a personal computer and boots up. Mike is better at the game than most of his peers. He reaches level four, gladiator warfare, before anything strange occurs. At that point a muscular gladiator wearing horns atop his head steps right out of the computer screen and seizes mental control of Mike's hands, forcing him to play the game faster and faster. Thor, as the gladiator is called, says his purpose is to punish Mike for using a bootleg disk by never letting him stop playing. Thor's grasp of reality is limited, but he manages not to draw too much attention to himself as he assumes control over Mike's school. Mike's friend Ben suggests the game designer may have installed a backdoor failsafe into Phantom Quest in case a gladiator went rogue as Thor has done, but sending Thor back becomes more complicated when three other gladiators—Exterminator, Mongo, and Siren—escape the game and start destroying Mike's school. Can Mike and Ben implement their plan to stop the gladiators before they embark on a quest for world domination? Revenge of the Computer Phantoms is an interesting enough story. Mike's focus in life had narrowed to the point of neglecting friends and outdoor activities so he could sit inside and play video games, but he'll have a new outlook if he survives Thor and the other gladiators. He may even have a new friend in Vickie Goldberg, a cute and friendly girl from his class. I rate Revenge of the Computer Phantoms only one and a half stars because the story logic doesn't hold up under the slightest scrutiny, but it's a fun read and I enjoy the Shadow Zone series. It beats getting attacked by crazed virtual gladiators while playing video games.
