About the book:An amazing new video game has the power to resurrect the brightest minds of the past and see what they’d create in the modern world. There’s just one catch—it requires another person’s soul. Carter Chance, who is a teenage genius, must find a way to stop his generation from exchanging their souls for a computer-generated fantasy. This action-packed thriller delves into the enticement and dangers of virtual reality.

My review: The Lazarus Game by Stephen J. Valentine
This is different book on many levels. It is exciting YA adventure. It is a science fiction. A book that is philosophical. Makes me wonder what choice would I make. It is a clean read.
Carter is a genius. He is a teenager. He is going to high school for the social life. He is smug.
Sidney Locke is one of his friends. Carter has a crush on her.
Clinton is Carter's older brother. He is a jock who quit playing sports. He is a senior.
Darek Bramderson is his best friend. He hates everyone.
Kyle Chamberlain is irresistible to woman. These friends hang out together. They work together to find out answers.
I was surprised at who the bad guys were. For the longest time I could not tell who were the ones to trust. I admired the bad guys.
There is a new game store that has moved into town. Everyone is talking about the games. People are lined up to get into play the video games.
This deals with the worth of a person's life. Is one person worth more than another's life. I think I know but then wonder if I am faced with one of my family what choice would I make than.
I was given this ebook to read by Cedar Fort Publishing. In return I agreed to give a honest review of The Lazarus Game and be part of it's blog tour.
