In the virtual reality game "Heir Apparent, "there are "way "too many ways to get killed--and Giannine seems to be finding them all. Which is a darn shame, because unless she can get the magic ring, locate the stolen treasure, answer the dwarf's dumb riddles, impress the head-chopping statue, charm the army of ghosts, fend off the barbarians, and defeat the man-eating dragon, she'll "never "win.
And she has to, because losing means she'll die--"for real "this time.
