Tark and Zyra finally make it out into the real world... but things are not quite what they expected. When Zyra is captured by the Designers, Tark finds himself among a group of teenage rebels. It seems like everyone has an agenda and Tark and Zyra are to be pawns in other people’s power games. They soon discover the sinister uses to which the game is being put and the shocking way it is all operated – with dozens of kidnapped children wired directly into the mainframe, their brains keeping the whole thing going. Will Tark and Zyra be able to free these children? Will they be able to save the characters within the game from the people who created them? Will they even be able to remain in the real world? Or will the Designers’ plans for world domination win out?



Gamers’ Rebellion is the finale chapter in the  Gamers trilogy.


I absolutely enjoyed reading Gamers’ Rebellion by George Ivanoff. It had me hooked from the very beginning.


I may not have read Gamers; Quest and Gamers’ Challenge but after finishing Gamers’ Rebellion I defiantly intend on getting a copy of both books and reading. I found Gamers’ Rebellion full of excitement.


At times I did get confused about Tark and Zyra as I never fully understood the characters as without reading Gamers’ Quest and Gamers’ Challenge I found i had missed the most important thing of the story of how things began and where they actually came from. I eventually worked out that both Tark and Zyra are not from the real world but that of the world created by the Designers.


This book is aimed at young people 11+ and I truely believe all kids who are into the world of gaming would enjoy reading the Gamers’ Trilogy. It really brings the world of gaming into a whole new light.


I really loved the way George has written Gamers’ Rebellion. For me it’s a great was to get kids out of the gaming world and into the world of fiction through books.


Well done George Ivanoff for writing such a great book!!
