Publisher's Summary

The near future. A UFO appears on Earth's orbit. Ignoring all contact attempts, it showers the planet with priceless artifacts. Choose: perfect health, $10 million, or seven years in prison, per the new amendment.
The night of the meteor shower, Paul and his friends run around the city, engaging in quick fights with citizens gone crazy, trying to obtain one of the artifacts.
But is it really selfless help the mysterious aliens are offering? What awaits a human who holds a precious crystal in his hand? Where will he wake up tomorrow? What if the first thing he sees when he opens his eyes is the blinking line of text "Loading location: virtual training ground Kubinka-Digital. Welcome, cadet! You're now space fighter pilot!"?

I was very disappointed with this book by D.Rus

What would have made The Cadet better?

I was very disappointed with this offering by D.Rus, I loved the alterworld books, but this was ...i dont know... either poorly written in hurry up mode, or poorly translated...maybe both. Disappointing, it could have been so much more... the future military almost all female after bio weapons killed almost all males... time traveling to mine the genetic legacy of the past and keep the race going... all patched into a cyberpunk lit rpg book.... it could have been great... I think this one died on the editor and translators pens.

Would you ever listen to anything by D. Rus again?

Before this I just bought anything by D rus, wont be doing that again....

What three words best describe Jef Holbrook’s performance?

good performance

I just don't know

I don't really know what to say other then I like what he was trying to do but i just does not have that magic of his other books.

Maybe it's that he bogs you down in the minutiae of the world and forgot about character development. For most of the book i was lost. I didn't know or really care where they were going and why they were going there. The whole leveling system in this book seemed overly convoluted and lacked any real in game meaning as to awesome perks and abilities.
