Book News: Doomed by Tracy Deebs

I'm thrilled to share the cover and an excerpt for Doomed by Tracy Deebs. Tracy is the author of Tempest Rising and Tempest Unleashed. I have attended two of Tracy's book signings and a few nights ago I noticed on twitter she was asking for help for her latest book cover reveal, so I jumped at the chance to help. Have you heard of Doomed? What are your thoughts on the cover? Will Doomed make it onto your to-read list?

Doomed by Tracy Deebs
Release Date: January 8, 2013
Publisher: Walker Books

About the book:

Beat the Game, Save the World.

One Stuxnet type worm,
One Greek-themed MMO,
One real world scavenger hunt,
Three teenagers on the run
And a ten-day countdown to total nuclear annihilation .
Pandora’s Box isn’t just a myth anymore …

When seventeen-year-old Pandora Walker opens an email attachment, she uploads the most frightening worm ever invented—and in doing so, brings about total technological Armageddon. Everything from the internet to communications to utilities collapses and suddenly Pandora finds herself on the run from Homeland Security, the FBI and every police department in the country, all of whom blame her for the technological wasteland sweeping across the U.S.. With the help of stepbrothers Eli and Theo, her neighbors and the two hottest guys in school-- plus codes encrypted in a world famous MMO-- she sets out on a real life scavenger hunt that only she can solve. A scavenger hunt that pits her against one of the most brilliant men in the world—the maker of the Pandora worm. Her father. Only by unraveling the clues left by him in the MMO, and in real-world places around the U.S., can they hope to beat the clock ticking the days off until the entire planet is Doomed.
