And if you're just as crazy insane excited as I am - I'm so happy to be giving ONE of you the opportunity to win the most kick-ass prize pack for this series ever! But before we get into all of that good stuff, I need to remind you guys that not only are we getting the final book in the trilogy soon but also another amazing ebook novella - Sparks Rise. (It includes a preview chapter of In The Afterlight just in case the wait is killing you a little bit extra and you need something to tide you over) In Time pretty much gutted me so I'm anxious to see what Alex will do to me with this one.
Here's a bit about it if you're living under a rock and haven't checked it out yet:
Sparks Rise (The Darkest Minds #2.5)
Available online September 2, 2014
This New eBook Novella connects the last two novels in The Darkest Minds trilogy.
Sam didn't think things could get worse at Thurmand rehabilitation camp. Then the Reds arrive. Everyone assumed the kids with firepower had been killed years ago. Instead they were taken away, brainwashed, and returned as terrifyingly effective guards. To her horror, Sam recognizes one of them: Lucas, the one spark of light in Sam's dark childhood.
Lucas has a deadly secret--he beat the brutal training that turned his fellow Reds into mindless drones. When Sam defends herself against an attack by a vile PSF guard and faces a harrowing punishment, Lucas must risk his everything to save her.
And also some important information about In The Afterlight:
In The Afterlight (The Darkest Minds #3)
In Stores October 28th
Ruby can't look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government's attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. Only Ruby can keep their highly dangerous prisoner in check. But with Clancy Gray, there's no guarantee you're fully in control, and everything comes with a price.
When the Children's League disbands, Ruby rises up as a leader and forms an unlikely allegiance with Liam's brother, Cole, who has a volatile secret of his own. There are still thousands of other Psi kids suffering in government "rehabilitation camps" all over the country. Freeing them--revealing the governments unspeakable abuses in the process--is the mission Ruby has claimed since her own escape from Thurmond, the worst camp in the country.
But not everyone is supportive of the plan Ruby and Cole craft to free the camps. As tensions rise, competing ideals threaten the mission to uncover the cause of IANN, the disease that killed most of America's children and left Ruby and others with powers the government will kill to keep contained. With the fate of a generation in their hands, there is no room for error. One wrong move could be the spark that sets the world on fire.
