Lee Summerston can’t cut a break.
A down-and-out history professor on the heels of a divorce, the country boy from Florida leads a team of old friends to virtual glory as the first-ever group to beat Mako Assault, a revolutionary new game that has emerged from nowhere to take the Internet by storm. As a reward for their achievement, and under the guise of publicity, the group is flown to meet the game’s mysterious designer. It’s then that Lee encounters a startling reality:
Mako’s intent was never to entertain its players. It was to train them.
An epic science fiction thrill-ride of action, suspense, laughter, and romance; MAKO is the story of five ordinary people, rising to the challenge of extraordinary events, driven only by their faith in each other.
