When 19 year-old Cam Cody is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he expects to spend the rest of his life in a hospital bed. Then one night a mysterious man offers Cam the chance to join a covert unit of young “terminals” who spend the last year of their lives executing dangerous missions to make the world a better place. With nothing to lose, Cam is in.
Dropped from a helicopter in a secret tropical location, he meets his nine teammates, who don’t seem sick at all. In fact, Zara is beautiful, Donnie is an amazing athlete, and Calliope sings like a bird. They’re all enhanced with an experimental steroid, TS-8, which suppresses their symptoms and heightens their abilities. They’ll still die, but they’ll die superheroes.
Cam joins this extreme spy team, and they begin pulling clandestine operations in multiple countries. But as his teammates fall around him, he starts to receive cryptic messages from a haggard survivor of last year’s class hiding in the forest, who reveals that the program isn’t what it claims to be…
It’s currently 1:20 AM where I am and I have just finished your amazing novel; The Terminals. I love being able to find a book that makes me want to stay up all night reading (I didn’t go to bed until 4AM yesterday) so first I want to thank you for being amazing and kicking ass with this novel!! I fell in love with this book in ways I didn’t think I would and am pumped beyond belief to read the next one!! Then probably the one after that and so on for hopefully quite a while! I love that your writing is completely unrelenting in a way that says there are no rules. I was heartbroken with just about each and every death that occurred, of course the deaths like Ari, and Zara’s hit a little closer to home, and that just shows how great of an author you are! You were able to create that connection and character establishment so quickly that the reader was upset by even the first of the deaths.
But I digress, I just wanted to say that I am SO excited to read the sequel and I just hope you don’t keep us waiting too long!!
P.S.- I love the cover art! I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover but its the first thing I noticed when browsing through books at B&N. Very glad I picked it up.
