內容簡介

於2011年以《紐約時報》暢銷科幻小說《一級玩家》(Ready Player One) 榮登《今日美國報》年度風雲人物的Ernest Cline,延續前作中,橫跨虛擬與真實的驚險刺激,推出最新力作,在外星人入侵的危機中,看主角如何保衛地球!

「娛樂性十足,一部對已逝去時代電玩遊戲的頌歌。如同《一級玩家》,對仍記得那段過去與玩過那些遊戲的人,《Armada》將充滿樂趣。」——《冰與火之歌》系列作家George R.R. Martin

「在這本地球與外星敵人對抗的大師傑作中,你十四歲時想像的那些陰謀論全部成真了。」——《火星任務》(The Martian)《紐約時報》暢銷作家Andy Weir

Zack Lightman成天都在做白日夢,沉浸於科幻小說、電影與電玩遊戲中,幻想真實世界能像這些虛幻的情節一樣。他幻想有一天,會發生足以改變世界的重大事件,為他一成不變的生活帶來刺激,也許還能經歷一場太空冒險。

但一點點的空想與逃離現實,也沒什麼錯吧?畢竟,Zack告訴自己,他還能分辨幻想與真實的差別。在真實世界裡,有情緒控管問題、漫無目的的青少年電玩玩家,不可能變成拯救宇宙的英雄。

然後,他居然看見了飛碟?!

更詭異的是,他看到的飛碟,就是他每天晚上玩的,一款超人氣線上飛行模擬遊戲 Armada中的外星飛船。在遊戲中,玩家剛好必須要保護地球、對抗外星入侵者。

不,Zack沒有瘋掉。他眼前所見的景像真實無比,而他必須發揮技巧,在悲劇發生前,用盡全力保衛地球。Zack終於等到當英雄的機會,但在恐懼與興奮交雜的情緒之繼,他回想從小到大看過的科幻情節,然後不得不這麼想:他所面臨的情境,是不是有些……似曾相識?

《Armada》是充滿趣味、刺激且令人眼睛一亮的驚悚小說,也是一位青少年的成長冒險故事。這個外星人入侵的故事將會是您前所未見,巧妙融合流行文化與科幻元素,一場如《一級玩家》般的精彩旅程即將展開!

Zack Lightman has spent his life dreaming. Dreaming that the real world could be a little more like the countless science-fiction books, movies, and videogames he’s spent his life consuming. Dreaming that one day, some fantastic, world-altering event will shatter the monotony of his humdrum existence and whisk him off on some grand space-faring adventure. 
 
But hey, there’s nothing wrong with a little escapism, right? After all, Zack tells himself, he knows the difference between fantasy and reality. He knows that here in the real world, aimless teenage gamers with anger issues don’t get chosen to save the universe. 
 
And then he sees the flying saucer. 
 
Even stranger, the alien ship he’s staring at is straight out of the videogame he plays every night, a hugely popular online flight simulator called Armada—in which gamers just happen to be protecting the earth from alien invaders.  
 
No, Zack hasn’t lost his mind. As impossible as it seems, what he’s seeing is all too real. And his skills—as well as those of millions of gamers across the world—are going to be needed to save the earth from what’s about to befall it. 
 
It’s Zack’s chance, at last, to play the hero. But even through the terror and exhilaration, he can’t help thinking back to all those science-fiction stories he grew up with, and wondering: Doesn’t something about this scenario seem a little…familiar? 
 
At once gleefully embracing and brilliantly subverting science-fiction conventions as only Ernest Cline could, Armada is a rollicking, surprising thriller, a classic coming of age adventure, and an alien invasion tale like nothing you’ve ever read before—one whose every page is infused with the pop-culture savvy that has helped make Ready Player One a phenomenon.
