Description - The Amulet of Komondor by Adam Osterweil

Like most middle-school kids, Joe and Katie are obsessed with their favorite fantasy card game, DragonSteel: The Amulet of Komondor -- a cross between Pokemon and Magic: The Gathering. When they find a computer game version of DragonSteel at a mysterious shop in the local mall, they jump at the chance to play it. But it turns out to be more than your average video game. Joe and Katie become the actual cartoonish characters of the game, journeying through the world of Komondor on a quest to find the five pieces of the DragonSteel amulet, which they need to save Komondor and Earth from three evil emperors. Using their skill with video games and the help of a colorful cast of new friends -- including an English Golem with a penchant for grammar and a doll-collecting baby prophet -- they take an exciting trip through Komondor and even deal with real-world problems concerning anxious parents, romance, and the FBI.
