A genuinely exciting action-adventure quest, set in a virtual world.
Imagine if you discovered your whole world was actually in a computer.
Noble is a knight with a heart that's true and, well, noble. He must fight everything he encounters in his quest to reach the castle and free the princess. But he's tired. Then one day Rufus comes along and turns his world upside down. Rufus has his own ideas about how to get ahead: don't fight, negotiate! Don't play by the rules! Suddenly, life is more interesting - and less painful - than ever before. But the new rules are harder to live by than the old ones. And can it be true what people are saying: that Noble actually lives inside a computer (whatever that is), and that Rufus is a computer virus?
A fast-paced story with a hilarious combination of characters that pushes the boundaries of space and time.
