Erebos is a game, and it has one goal, to kill. The book Erebos U. Poznanski is a thriller inspired by MMORPGs. The story focuses on the protagonist Nick and his experiences and difficulties when he finds out about a game circulating around school.

I think it was a fun fictional book that was easy to read. But I think yet again this book brings up the questions of AI and the power it might have over human lives. In the book, the AI has such strong influences on players that they do whatever tasks they are asked, e.g. killing. I thought it resembled a strong addiction-like-drug, where the user abides every command to be able to continue with the addiction.
