I am so excited to be taking part in the cover reveal for Tracy Deebs' next book, Doomed! I heard about the premise of this one last year at a signing for Tempest Rising, and it totally got into my head. So without further ado, I bring you the Doomed cover:
Isn't that an awesome cover? I love the blue and greens, as well as the cyber/virtual feel, and then the destruction in the background. Heck. Yeah.
So what's this book about? Great question!
Beat the Game, Save the World.
One Stuxnet type worm,
One Greek-themed MMO,
One real world scavenger hunt,
Three teenagers on the run
And a ten-day countdown to total nuclear annihilation .
Pandora’s Box isn’t just a myth anymore …
When seventeen-year-old Pandora Walker opens an email attachment, she uploads the most frightening worm ever invented—and in doing so, brings about total technological Armageddon. Everything from the internet to communications to utilities collapses and suddenly Pandora finds herself on the run from Homeland Security, the FBI and every police department in the country, all of whom blame her for the technological wasteland sweeping across the U.S.. With the help of stepbrothers Eli and Theo, her neighbors and the two hottest guys in school-- plus codes encrypted in a world famous MMO-- she sets out on a real life scavenger hunt that only she can solve. A scavenger hunt that pits her against one of the most brilliant men in the world—the maker of the Pandora worm. Her father. Only by unraveling the clues left by him in the MMO, and in real-world places around the U.S., can they hope to beat the clock ticking the days off until the entire planet is Doomed.
Yeah. This book sounds so freaking awesome! I mean, oops on, you know, being the reason for world doom but... yay for being able to solve it? Yes. That.
So if you're as excited for this book as I am, head over to Mundie Moms where you can enter to WIN an ARC, and read an awesome excerpt of the book!
