Jack and Aubrey are high school students. Laura and Alec are trained terrorists. There was no reason for their paths to ever cross...But now a mysterious virus is spreading throughout America, infecting teenagers with impossible powers. And these four are about to 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. Robison Wells blew readers away with Variant, which Publishers Weekly called a chilling and masterful debut in a starred review. The sequel, Feedback, was praised by Kirkus Reviews as an absorbing read that won't let fans of the first down. In Blackout, he delivers a lightning-fast, nail-bitingly intense thriller that's perfect for fans of The Maze Runner and I Am Number Four-set in a complex and unpredictable world, where the greatest threat comes from a weapon that no one knows how to control ...and the most chilling questions have yet to be answered.
