Today’s teaser comes from Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum
Release Date: January 8th, 2013
Published by: HarperTEEN
Twenty years ago, the robots designed to fight our wars abandoned the battlefields. Then they turned their weapons on us.
Only a few escaped the robot revolution of 2071. Kevin, Nick, and Cass are lucky —they live with their parents in a secret human community in the woods. Then their village is detected and wiped out. Hopeful that other survivors have been captured by bots, the teens risk everything to save the only people they have left in the world—by infiltrating a city controlled by their greatest enemies.
Revolution 19 is a cinematic thriller unlike anything else. With a dynamic cast of characters, this surefire blockbuster has everything teen readers want—action, drama, mystery, and romance. Written by debut novelist Gregg Rosenblum, this gripping story shouldn’t be missed.
“Cass bent down to feel the floor. She pushed with her fingers, feeling it compress then spring back. “Amazing,” she said.
“I guess, if you’re into cheap carpet,” said Lexi. “Come on, shoes off.”
Everyone took off their boots, and Lexi wrinkled her nose. “Oh, God, I should have just let you track mud. Did you people rub your socks in skunk?”
“We’ve been in the woods a while,” Said Nick.
“Yeah, I can smell that.” (pg 77 ARC.)
“Nick watched in horror, helpless, as the needle entered his vein with a pinch. Something was injected that burned brutally up his arm, into his chest. He tried to scream, but the pain took his breath away. He slumped down in his chair, unable to speak. The burning faded, but he found himself unable to move. His vision was tunneled, blurred at the edges.” (pg 160 ARC.)
