Homeland meets Marie Lu's Legend in Blackout, which #1 New York Times bestselling author Ally Condie called "a thrilling combination of Wells's trademark twists and terror. Fantastic!"

Laura and Alec are highly trained teenage terrorists. Jack and Aubrey are small-town high school students. There was no reason for their paths ever to cross. But now a mysterious virus is spreading throughout America, infecting teenagers with impossible superpowers--and all teens are being rounded up, dragged to government testing facilities, and drafted into the army to fight terrorism. Suddenly, Jack, Laura, Aubrey, and Alec find their lives intertwined in a complex web of deception, loyalty, and catastrophic danger--where one wrong choice could trigger an explosion that ends it all.

I really liked this book except it leaves you confused for the most part. You really have to try to figure things out. Plus, there is the biggest cliff hanger at the end. I am glad there's going to be a sequel. An great book, but you aren't really being told much about what is happening outside of the main characters.

HORRIBLE............. Warning!!! do not get sucked into reading this book unless you're fully prepared to read two or three additional books along a similar topic that is slightly interesting but doesn't go anywhere. Teens are supposedly horribly infected with this virus/disease that gives them awesome, cool and somewhat amazing powers. I decided to give this author a second chance. i had read another book of his that was along the same lines, and guess what? He did the same thing! He got you going on a somewhat interesting topic and then didn't go anywhere. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT! By the way........... the biggest fantasy was not the fact that they had super powers, but that ALLL OF THE TEENS LISTENED TO ADULTS IN AUTHORITY POSITIONS! Without even rebelling. Wow. That's a truly imaginary story.
