Waiting on Armada!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

16278318
Zack Lightman is daydreaming through another dull math class when the high-tech dropship lands in his school's courtyard-and when the men in the dark suits and sunglasses leap out of the ship and start calling his name, he's sure he's still dreaming.
But the dream is all too real; the people of Earth need him. As Zack soon discovers, the videogame he's been playing obsessively for years isn't just a game; it's part of a massive, top-secret government training program, designed to teach gamers the skills they'll need to defend Earth from a possible alien invasion. And now... that invasion is coming.
As he and his companions prepare to enter their ships and do battle, Zack learns that the father he thought was dead is actually a key player in this secret war. And together with his father, he'll uncover the truth about the alien threat, race to prevent a genocide, and discover a mysterious third player in the interplanetary chess game he's been thrown into.


Will be released October 7, 2014 by Crown Publishing!

  17. Holy crap, I loved his Ready Player One and I want this book SO BAD. Last I heard I wasn't sure when it was coming out though; I thought it was fall of this year as well, but then I saw some info on the publisher site that said next year and huh?! I was really confused - but I really hope it is released sooner rather than later.

  19. This is entirely new to me, but I LOVE that plot!! I'm a HUGE science fiction fan, so this one is right up my alley, even though I'm not a gamer. Still, that plot.....it's just AWESOME. So I'm going to add it to my Goodreads TBR like NOW.

    Thanks for featuring this book, as well as for commenting on my WOW!! : )

  20. While reading this blurb I was reminded of Stargate Universe where the guy got past a certain level which was a test made by the stargate team to find someone smart enough.. I do hope this book does better than that series did. thanks for stopping by :)

  25. Thanks for stopping by my WoW! I haven't read anything by Ernest Cline yet. I'm not a big sci-fi reader but I know a lot of bloggers love Ready Player One. I think I might have to try it at some point even if it's a little out of my comfort zone :)

  26. That sounds really different! I don't think I have ever heard about a book where a video game becomes real life, I will definitely have to check this out, thanks for sharing :)

  42. Sounds awesome, Krystianna! And if you like this kind of story, you should check out Lockstep. I just finished it last week, so I haven't written my review yet, but there was a blurring of the lines between reality and video games there, too. Of course, I'm adding Armada to my TBR :)
