Review: Countdown


Publication Date: October 1st 2013 by

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 OVER
Kira Jordan, a thief and orphan, her family being murdered years before, is unwillingly thrown into the game of Countdown and being an orphan in a game like Countdown is dangerous, because it means no one will miss you, and that's why Kira was chosen. Waking up in the dark she finds she is not alone, and that she's also chained. Rogan Ellis, a convicted murderer in Juvie awaiting to be transported to Saradone upon his 18th birthday has nothing to lose, and that's why he was willing and chosen.
Not knowing whether to trust him, or what the hell is going on, Kira's reluctant to help free him from the chains.
Until the Countdown begins.
And now they have to work together to survive.
