Description

In this sequel to Proxy, we first see Syd as an assassination attempt is made on his life. In the new world, led by the Rebooters, Syd is the figurehead of the Revolution. Liam, an 18-year-old Rebooter, is Syd's bodyguard and must protect him with his life. But Machinists with guns aren't the only danger in the post-Jubilee world. People are falling ill-their veins show through their skin, they find it hard to speak, and sores erupt all over their bodies. Guardians are hit first, and the government does nothing to help. Syd decides it's up to him to find a cure...And what he discovers leaves him stunned: The only way to stop people from getting sick is to reverse the very revolution that he and Knox began.

Review quote

Praise for PROXY: "Put down what you're doing and read this book. Right now. The complex characters, intricate world, and blistering pace are off-the-charts amazing. I fell in love with this story from the first sentence to the final, epic page. London is a force to be reckoned with." --Marie Lu, author of the Legend trilogy"Alex London is one of the most multi-dimensional writers out there. Proxy blew me away. It's deep, thrilling, thought-provoking, and at times simultaneously maddening and uplifting. I need to have more of Syd and Knox. Proxy is one stunning read!" --Andrew Smith, author of WINGER and GRASSHOPPER JUNGLE
Praise for GUARDIAN: "Corrupt powers, budding romance, an epidemic and grisly action synthesize to sate sci-fi fans."--Kirkus Reviews

"Nonstop action and breakneck pace characterize this exceptional thriller. London provides his audience with an intricate plot, enriched by fine world-building and believable characters....This thought-provoking and breathtaking novel belongs in all collections serving young adults."--VOYA
