Black Out

We rated this book:


Robin Wells’s Blackout is a story about four teenagers whose paths cross as a result of deception and danger.

A mysterious virus that is spreading through America brings two high school students, Jack and Aubrey, together with Alec and Laura, a pair of trained terrorists. As the group soon discovers that the virus infects teenagers with incredible and impossible powers, they also learn that there are serious consequences to having these powers. As the line between deception and loyalty becomes blurred, as single wrong choice can yield catastrophic results.

Blackout is a fast paced dystopian novel that can be described as a combination between X-Men and Michael Grant’s GONE. The different characters and their viewpoints really enhance the novel and allow readers to experience the story from different points of view. Readers will find themselves engrossed in the novel as they fly through the pages in order to find out the truth. Wells does a great job with combining action, dystopia, and romance in the first book of the Blackout series.
