Today is the day! BLACKOUT by Meredith McCardle releases! I’m so excited about the sequel to the heart-pounding, fast-paced thriller of THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN. In fact, I’m so anxious to share this with you that at the bottom of this post, you can enter to win an autographed hardcover!
I absolutely loved book 1 of the Annum Guard series so it was hard to wait for BLACKOUT to come out. THE EIGTH GUARDIAN not only had interesting and unique characters, and not only was the world building so intricate and finely woven, but it was one of those books you just can’t put down until you reach the last page.
I know I’ll be devouring BLACKOUT the moment it arrives in my mailbox. If you’re looking for a unique, well-written time travel book, then you won’t go wrong with this series.
Here’s the blurb on Amazon:
Seventeen-year-old Amanda Obermann (code name: Iris) has more on her mind than usual. As a member of a covert government organization called the Annum Guard, which travels through time to keep history on track, Iris has been getting some particularly stressful assignments. Plus, Jane Bonner, the Guard’s iron-fisted new leader, seems determined to make life as hard as possible. Thankfully, Iris has Abe (code name: Blue), her boyfriend and fellow Guardian, who listens to her vent—and helps her cope with her mentally ill mother’s increasingly erratic behavior.
When Guardians start to disappear on their assignments, Iris makes a terrifying discovery: a “blackout” squad is targeting anyone who gets in the way of a corrupt force that’s selling out both the Annum Guard’s missions and Guardian lives. Together, Iris and Blue must go undercover to untangle the Guard’s elaborate web of secrets and lies. But when Iris discovers that the terrible truth may involve her own father, a former Guardian undone by his own greed, she must decide how much she’s willing to risk to rescue her friends…and how dangerous the consequences will be for all of humanity.
A thrilling time-traveling adventure that spans from Abraham Lincoln’s assassination to the Cuban Missile Crisis and back to the present day, this pulse-pounding sequel to The Eighth Guardian reveals that playing with time can turn into a deadly game.
BLACKOUT is available in hardcover, paperback and Kindle.
