Black Out By Robinson Wells
Publication Date: October 1, 2013
Laura and Alec are trained terrorists.
Jack and Aubrey are high school students.
There was no reason for them to ever meet.
But now, a mysterious virus is spreading throughout America, infecting teenagers with impossible powers. And these four are about to find their lives intertwined in a complex web of deception, loyalty, and catastrophic danger—where one wrong choice could trigger an explosion that ends it all.
Excuse me for a moment while I squee like a 14 year old girl.
Ok…I feel better. Anyways, let me tell you why I am so excited about this book. Red Dawn meets Legend. KAPOW!
Yep, this book is being touted as a mixture of the cult classic Red Dawn (which I own…both the original and remake) and Marie Lu’s Legend, which we all know rocks. I mean read the synopsis for a second. Terrorist and High School students? Doesn’t get much wilder than that does it? Oh wait…yes it does! ONE WRONG CHOICE COULD TRIGGER AN EXPLOSION THAT ENDS IT ALL!!! (*insert appropriately dramatic background music.) I’m a junkie for action and this book has hellfire and damnation written all over it. *fist pump*
This is what I am waiting for.
What are YOU waiting for?
