About the Series: Cyberspace Is Real World
It isn't that easy to be a teenager, neither in Real World, nor in cyberspace. RW occupies you to a large extent, with school, parents, siblings and all that. In cyberspace, it's possible to meet friends, play a game, or... whatever.

Bazan prefers cyberspace. His friends do too. It's like, their life in RW is only the other side of their existence in Virtual Reality.

They are known among themselves as the Outcast tribe, a large array of personalities and abilities augmented in cyberspace. Bazan "thinks differently".

It began with a game, morphed partly over to RW, then cyberspace became more dangerous than Real World.

In a game, you might kill, steal from, or fool your opponent. But Virtual Reality is more than that. It's another dimension of Real World, with money and criminals and myths and everything.

And who is the girl you like in VR? Will she fancy you in RW?

Sometimes, it's hard to differ between what's going on where. A mother might believe something. Is it your task to correct her? She is a grown up, isn't she?

Is it possible to make an Artificial Intelligence, and give it a human upbringing? No one have done it so far, so it's time to give it a try.

Review by: Roddy Phillips on Sep. 16, 2015 :
This is a very exciting, highly original and fascinating read. Although it is aimed at the Young Adult fantasy fiction market it transcends pigeon holing and pushes the boundaries of the genre. The hero Bazan is an ingenious contemporary creation, a teenager very much of his time and yet like a young Arthur he is swept away on a perilous mission of mythic proportions. Ludvig Solvang has managed to combine the epic Norse sagas with the witty mindset of the digital gaming age to memorable effect. Quirky and constantly surprising The Battle of Neuschwanstein cannot be recommended enough. It is I note the first of more to come. I suspect Mr Solvang is onto something.

Review by: Christina B on Aug. 3, 2015 :
This is a wonderful story written by my friend Ludvig Solvang, about a group of teenagers who have exciting adventures in cyberspace and some very amusing experiences in real life. The book is aimed at teenagers, but even though I'm a little older, I loved reading it. Ludvig is a Norwegian writing in English which adds a fairytale quality to his work, and the virtual worlds he creates are described so vividly I think it would make a brilliant film. Volumes 2 and 3 are in the pipeline.
