Waiting on Bluescreen!

 


20499652 Los Angeles in 2050 is a city of open doors, as long as you have the right connections. That connection is a djinni—a smart device implanted right in a person’s head. In a world where virtually everyone is online twenty-four hours a day, this connection is like oxygen—and a world like that presents plenty of opportunities for someone who knows how to manipulate it.

Marisa Carneseca is one of those people. She might spend her days in Mirador, the small, vibrant LA neighborhood where her family owns a restaurant, but she lives on the net—going to school, playing games, hanging out, or doing things of more questionable legality with her friends Sahara and Anja. And it’s Anja who first gets her hands on Bluescreen—a virtual drug that plugs right into a person’s djinni and delivers a massive, non-chemical, completely safe high. But in this city, when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is, and Mari and her friends soon find themselves in the middle of a conspiracy that is much bigger than they ever suspected.

Dan Wells, author of the New York Times bestselling Partials Sequence, returns with a stunning new vision of the near future—a breathless cyber-thriller where privacy is the world’s most rare resource and nothing, not even the thoughts in our heads, is safe.

Release Date: February 16, 2016

  1. I haven't read the Partials series yet but this one sounds interesting. Now as much as I love me some tech, I'm totally against it being implanted in me lol. Just think when your phone messes up and you need to hard reset or replace it ;) I think I'll have to add this to my TBR. My WoW

  16. Funny enough I found out about this book fully through a negative review. But that review complained about complicated plot, multiple povs and sci-fi elements. Stuff that I loved so I went to check it out myself and already have this book on my wishlist. Excited to see how this story unfolds. Awesome pick. My WOW .

  17. I haven't read anything of Dan Wells yet. This might be it!

    With how connected we are today, imagine being connected virtually all the time! As much as I use technology, this is the other end of the spectrum. Massive no!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  27. There seems to be a lot of books around now about this kind of virtual way of living. I don't know how excited I am to read them though haha. I hope you enjoy this one :)

  28. I saw this one a long time ago and then basically forgot about it. I think I may check it out, as it sounds interesting. I read Partials by Dan Wells and then never really continued on with the series. I do remember I thought it was cool how they obtained music from old MP3 players. Thanks for sharing this one!

  33. First of all, so sorry for the very late comment back.....I was unusually busy last week!

    This is an incredibly amazing pick!! The world in this novel sounds like a truly frightening one, and I hope we never get there. Still, this book does sounds like a fascinating read. I wonder if people start removing these "djinni" from their heads by the end of the book.

    BTW, the female protagonist's last name is a rather eerie one. I happen to be fluent in Spanish, and I think her last name is a very fitting metaphor for the society depicted in this novel. "Carne" means "flesh", or "meat", and "seca" means "dry", in the feminine form. (Every noun and adjective in Spanish has masculine and feminine forms; "seco" is the masculine form, but, since "carne" is feminine, the adjective has to be feminine, too.)

    Thanks for featuring this book! Also, thanks for commenting on my own WOW!! : )
