The book series begins with brothers Reggie (age 14) and Jeremy (age 10) who are expert gamers of the Echo game series. After a run-in with their mother's explosive boyfriend, they decide to run away from home to live with their father. Soon after they set off down the west coast they begin to notice strange disappearances of fellow Echo gamers. With growing suspicion they could be next, the brothers do everything possible to stay out of sight.
When Reggie and Jeremy finally realize what has been capturing all the Echo gamers, they discover it is the new and indestructible version of Echo. Echo-7 has developed the ability to reverse the rules of its own video game and hunt them down- this time in the real world. The brothers must overcome their greatest fears if they are to survive the wrath of Echo-7.
