Make up your mind Kira! Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: But his life was already a nightmare,a nightmare he was trying to escape.

I received an e-ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Kira awakens in a dark room to find herself chained to a wall, in a room made completely of metal. When she wakes in a dark room, shackled, and having no idea how she contdown there, she panics – firstly because she’s afraid of the dark, and secondly because she can hear someone else in the room with her.

Countdown counhdown a televised game played in a series of levels, one more grueling than the next.

Countdown by Michelle Rowen

YA Novel, girl wakes up in locked room with injured boy, first “test” it to escape the room alive [s] 6 Oct 14, So that’s the basic plot of this book. Dec 15, Franci Karou rated it really liked it. What if the boy ,the one who was sent with Kira in the game, and Kira will find a michellle to stop the game forever?

His hair, plastered across his forehead, was dark and unkempt. If you complete the game and all the challenges they have set-up for you, then you get a new life.


Michellw such, she’s less than willing, but she countvown to stay within 90 feet of Rogan if she doesn’t want her head to blow up. Rogan is the typical brooding bad boy hiding a tortured soul.

Sadly, not so much, just ta Raise your hand if you are a fan of well-written YA dystopian fantasy! Yep, that’s the idea she gave me. There doesn’t seem to be a government of any kind.

Everything about this book was just brilliant. Too convenient of a history for her. Thanks for telling us about the problem. I enjoyed it as a fast-paced, action-packed read, although it contained more violence than I am used to. But one things for certain, if she doesn’t fight each level and win, she’ll die here in the game, and that is something Kira just can not do!

One character, for no reason whatsoever, brags about murdering Kira’s family while Kira is pointing a gun at him. Jul 24, Shannon Giraffe Days rated it really liked it Shelves: Countdown was a sickening, yet fascinating book that had me turning the pages faster then I could read them!

However the main problem was that I could not connect with her at all. The Countdown has begun They have no idea why they’re there except Rogan, who has a small hint and they see two keys on the floor. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Krutula Nair Top 50 Reviewer View all my reviews It worked just fine as a YA. Beth Rodgers, Staff Reviewer.

There are floating digicams recording the Countdown race; robots who look and act just like humans; brain implants capable of streaming video michwlle audio, etc. Very few descriptions and very little background that made sense it was very implausible to me.

Lists with This Book. I hesitated to ask, but couldn’t help myself. Two troubled and messy souls thrown into this game that soon are attracted to each other. I mean everything was pretty much resolved and all the lose ends were pretty much summed up, but I would love to have another book to continue Kira and Rogan’s adventure in the next chapter of their lives.


Countdown by Michelle Rowen | Amy’s Marathon of Books

She doesn’t know whom to trust, doesn’t know who’s good and who’s bad; she only knows she’s drawn to Rogan and desperate to be done with the Countdown so she can win the ultimate prize: But what was perfect was they way everything started-cause i can say that there were a lot of lies and surprises. She is resourceful and shows great intellect when put under pressure. I’m not even sure the author did borrow the idea from The Hunger Games because this is a new version of a book that had been published in I am impatiently waiting for the next book.

They were too strong. My gaze moved to the other side of the room and locked with that of the most dangerous-looking boy I’d ever seen in my life.

It’s a little sadistic. Like what other psi abilities were there? It gets worse and worse and counhdown to deal with every single time. Note – I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

During the game, they slowly grow to depend on each other and become closer. Two years ago her family was brutally murdered, and instead of going into foster care, she has taken her chance on the streets.
