Insignia Competition

It’s every gamer's dream. From The Last Starfighter to War Games , what if those countless hours spent piloting giant robots/shooting insurgents/collecting cabbages could actually help to save the world… and the government’s secret weapon was you? Well dream no more because S J Kincaid has only gone and written a book about it!

“Tom Raines is suddenly recruited into the US Army to train as a virtual reality combatant to see if he is good enough to help fight World War Three. Equipped with a new computer chip in his brain, it looks as if Tom might actually become somebody. But what happens when you start to question the rules?”

Insignia is the first part of a fast-paced, futuristic trilogy that asks big questions about technology, the value of life and will n00bs have a hope in a future where your prowess on Call Of Duty could save your life?

To whet your appetite (and give you a chance with the fiendishly tricky question) here’s a short extract from Insignia:

"'...yes, the military has an agenda when it comes to dealing with you. And so does General Marsh. But that's really what you have to put up with if you want to be one of us. The question is, Tom, do you want to be one of us?' She leaned closer, her eyes gripping his. 'Do you want to be somebody important?'"

We have three copies for three lucky winners, but that’s not all, because the first prize winner will also win three amazing Makey Makey sets. Banana piano! Playdoh game controller! Alphabet soup keyboard! The only limit is your imagination (and the length of the crocodile clips).

To be in with a chance of winning answer the simple question behind this link .
