There's still a chance to avert a disaster of terrific proportions, but the clock is running out. Tracie Tanner is one for the ages. I loved this book!
It is a taut and thoughtful journey back to the dying days of the Cold War And his name is Allan Leverone. One Good Deed David Baldacci. I give major one-ups to V-cubed Vivian Vande Velde for not making this seem like a big deal. Rather, she just stated that girls can also like games, so let's get on with the awesome adventures, shall we?
Giannine is witty, smart and believably determined as your typical year-old girl une As a avid gaming fan myself, I was overcome with giddiness when I learned that the main protagonist of this fun read about a gamer trapped inside a medieval virtual reality strategy setup was also a female. Giannine is witty, smart and believably determined as your typical year-old girl unexpectedly caught in something out of her league however, not too determined to be distracted from from the handsome boys in the game.
As someone who has played various versions of Zelda for hours on end Ocarina of Time, anyone? An experienced gamer will wag a finger at the novice mistakes Giannine makes in the beginning hint: The highest of all stakes, of course, is that Gianinne's non-virtual life also hangs in the balance, with the time ticking away until the machine overloads This scenario is wonderfully fun to follow, even if I've seen it in other books and television shows before most memorably in a kickass episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark?
Aside from the main plot, HA has great thematic undercurrents about how the true dangers are often not the video games or virtual realities, but those who would try to censor kids from experiencing these worlds.
As a fantasy novelist, this campaign felt both relevant and genuine coming from VVV. This was perfectly addressed in the beginning of the novel, and then smartly tossed aside in order to let the adventure take over.
All in all, this is a fast-paced adventurous ride that has a lot to love about it. I think I would have definitely enjoyed it more if I was a few years younger I am admittedly out of range of the target audience , but even so I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun way to spend the afternoon.

Giannine gets a gift certificate for her birthday to a Rasmussem Gaming Center, a virtual reality environment where your brain is hooked up to Rasmussem equipment so you can have the ultimate immersive gaming experience. Giannine decides to play Heir Apparent, a game in which the main character finds herself the unexpected heir to a throne, but faces all sorts of opposition from other NPCs non-player characters.
So Giannine has to figure out her own way of doing things. This had a satisfying beginning, which got a bit muddled and frustrating after Giannine started losing…over and over and over again.

The choices she makes are interesting, and the narrative really does capture the experience of this sort of gaming. A very cool idea, and not too badly executed. Oct 06, Amber rated it liked it.

The only way to get out of there unharmed is to win the game. In a regular video game when you die you get another life and start off where you died.
In Heir Apparent you have to start all the way from the beginning and go through the whole game again. This is a huge problem because there are a lot of complications in the game that can make you die. Will she ever become the king and win the game?

Heir Apparent was a well written book. It was suspenseful in some parts and others it was just like you were reading through something that had no interesting parts in it. In some parts of the book I felt like the author had mentioned the same parts of the story and started to get tired of it.
Oct 06, Faith rated it did not like it. Once she was in Rasmussem Gaming Center, the games began. The place was filled with virtual games, and she had to decide which to choose. Giannine selected the virtual game, Heir Apparent, but she was limited on time.
The time in the virtual game was longer than what the actual time was. She needed to do everything possible to keep her from dying, and to get to her goal. Every time Giannine dies in the game it starts over, but there is a problem, she is trapped in the game with limited time. Before everything goes bad, she needs to finish what she stared and the only way to do this is to finish the game. There's still a chance to avert a disaster of terrific proportions, but the clock is running out.
