*Please note, this review was based from an ARC*

  From the beginning, all the way to the end, this book leaves you clueless on what's really going on. It keeps you in the dark and guessing at every moment. Not only do you not know what's going on, the characters are left to sort things out as if putting a puzzle together in the dark. I loved this book!

  All is wonderful on Pemberwick Island and Tucker is at his football game, thinking about girls, and wanting to win. Just like all the other guys there. But when one of the star players drops dead with no reason and no clues, people start asking questions.

  Tucker now has to fill that position on the team and is sure that with all the brutal practices, he'll be the next one to drop dead, but when more people are found, he's not the only one suspicious. Sneaking out at night to go on a late run and clear his mind, Tucker and a friend see something far from normal and even further from explainable. And when troops with badges on the sleeve, sporting the words SYLO on them, the town goes into panic mode.

  The government has issued a lock-down and SYLO is there to help. That's what's being said anyway. But when people get locked up for asking questions, it's SYLO that starts becoming feared. Tucker sets out to find out what's really going on with SYLO, the outside world, and this stuff called Ruby that's being passed around behind closed doors. Just when you think he's getting close, more and more questions arise.

Received from Penguin for review purposes.


  1. Sounds like a great book! I'm sick of knowing the twists and turns ten pages into the novel so I can't wait for this one! I love having to keep guessing. Is Ruby a drug?

    Thanks for another wonderful review!

  2. Yes, Ruby is very similar to a drug. I suppose its a newly invented one.

  3. I want to read this one so bad!! I'm so glad to hear it's great! I love when authors keep you in the dark, along with the characters, as to what is really going on. It makes the book so much more fun. I wonder what SYLO is really up to, and what on earth Ruby is.

  4. Sounds Interesting! I must check this book at my favorite online bookstore..
