"Guardian, the sequel to Proxy, [Alex] London's first nail-biting science fiction thriller, is here... [and it] begins with a pyre of dead bodies belonging to those who succumbed to an uncontrollable decease with no apparent cure" (Anita Lock for Teenreads.com).
by Alex London
In the new world led by the Rebooters, former Proxy Syd is the figurehead of the Revolution, beloved by some and hated by others. Liam, a seventeen-year-old Rebooter, is Syd’s bodyguard and must protect him with his life. But armed Machinists aren’t the only danger.
People are falling ill—their veins show through their skin, they find it hard to speak, and sores erupt all over their bodies. Guardians, the violent enforcers of the old system, are hit first, and the government does nothing to help. The old elites fall next, and in the face of an indifferent government, Syd decides it’s up to him to find a cure... and what he discovers leaves him stunned.
"Truly action-packed yet filled with flashes of tenderness and compassion, Guardian is well written, with enough flashbacks that one could understand the story line without having to read the first novel in this set. But readers would be remiss if they didn't start from the very beginning" (Anita Lock for Teenreads.com).
Inspired by The Whipping Boy and Feed, this adrenaline-fueled thriller will appeal to fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent. Likewise, fans of Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider series, James Dashner's Maze Runner, Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking series, and Marie Lu's Legend trilogy will be swept away by this story.
