Description

Homeland meets Marie Lu's Legend in Blackout, which #1 New York Times bestselling author Ally Condie called a thrilling combination of Wells's trademark twists and terror. Fantastic!

Laura and Alec are highly trained teenage terrorists. Jack and Aubrey are small-town high school students. There was no reason for their paths ever to cross.

But now a mysterious virus is spreading throughout America, infecting teenagers with impossible superpowers--and all teens are being rounded up, dragged to government testing facilities, and drafted into the army to fight terrorism.

Suddenly, Jack, Laura, Aubrey, and Alec 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.

Back cover copy

The virus has spread... and four teens are infected.

This new life isn't what I asked for. And if I can't learn to protect myself, it will destroy me.

My mission is clear. My enemies will fall. And nothing will stand in my way.

I knew there was something wrong with me. But maybe I can be more than just a freak.

People always underestimate me. They only see a pretty face. And that mistake is going to cost them.
