Waiting on Wednesday (106) — DOOMED by Tracey Deebs

Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!

Beat the game. Save the world.

Pandora’s just your average teen—glued to her cell phone and laptop, surfing Facebook and e-mailing with her friends—until the day her long-lost father sends her a link to a mysterious site featuring twelve photos of her as a child. Unable to contain her curiosity, Pandora enters the site, where she is prompted to play her favorite virtual-reality game, Zero Day. This unleashes a global computer virus that plunges the whole world into panic: suddenly, there is no Internet. No cell phones. No utilities, traffic lights, hospitals, law enforcement. Pandora teams up with handsome stepbrothers Eli and Theo to enter the virtual world of Zero Day. Simultaneously, she continues to follow the photographs from her childhood in an attempt to beat the game and track down her father—her one key to saving the world as we know it. Part The Matrix, part retelling of the Pandora myth, Doomed has something for gaming fans, dystopian fans, and romance fans alike.

DOOMED will be released January 8th, 2013 from Walker Childrens.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    Neat! I am actually close to starting the ARC of this one. Which I like the ARC cover better if this the final one. Almost didn't recognize it, thought this was yet another book Tracey was writing!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    This seems like an interesting read :) It kinda reminds me of the Gone series. I really liked those books, so I will probably check this out

    This sounds really fun. I just finished Ready Player One though, and don't know if it could live up to it. Just means I have to wait a little before reading it :-) Thanks for stopping by!

    Nice I haven't read a re-telling of the Pandora myth before, it'll be interesting to see the modern take the author is using combined with the classic story. Great pick!
