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.


This is a perfect book for Years 7 - 9.

Combining a great adventure story with modern technology, Catherine Jinks has written another wonderful book.

With an amazing collection of fascinating characters and a plot that twists and turns, this is a really hard book to put down.

By the end of the story you will love Noble, Lorellina and Yestin and you will never look at your computer in quite the same way!

This book was included in our March 2014 Secondary Standing Order selection.
