3 seconds left to live. Once the countdown starts, it cannot be stopped.

2 pawns thrown into a brutal underground reality game.

Kira Jordan survived her family's murder and months on plague-devastated city streets with hard-won savvy and a low-level psi ability. She figures she can handle anything. Until she wakes up in a barren room, chained next to the notorious Rogan Ellis.

1 reason Kira will never, ever trust Rogan. Even though both their lives depend on it.

Their every move is controlled and televised for a vicious exclusive audience. And as Kira's psi skill unexpectedly grows and Rogan's secrets prove evermore deadly, Kira's only chance of survival is to risk trusting him as much as her instincts. Even if that means running head-on into the one trap she can't escape.

GAME 0VER

I gave up the book halfway,but I never admit out loud since a lot seemed to like it.

I heard such great things about it, and then when I read it I was like 'Really?' I can't believe people loved it so much!

Exactly what I thought.Cassie was getting on my nerves,and I didn't even bother to finish it.

I didn't like how it jumped back and forth between cassie and zombie, and all the training stuff was just dull.

Jalyn (jalynnie) | 3847 comments This is a lot better than I thought it would be. I went to bed early last night (around 8:30) and I decided to take my kindle with me and read a bit before sleeping. I figured at most I'd read for an hour because I was exhausted, but nope. Next thing I know it's almost midnight and I'm almost 70% done. I like it a lot so far!
