Today I’m pleased to take part in the GUARDIAN blog tour! GUARDIAN is the sequel to last year’s PROXY, a book that really made an impression on me. It’s kind of a futuristic update of The Whipping Boy, and features a diverse cast of characters including a protagonist who is a gay POC. You know I don’t read a lot of dystopian books, but Proxy gave me a lot to think about and plus had lots of heart-pounding action to make me want to keep reading.
My review copy of Guardian is still making its way across the country to me so look for a review at a later date, but in the meantime let’s find out more about the book and how you can enter to win a copy of Guardian for yourself!
GUARDIAN (Proxy, #2) by Alex London
On Sale Now!
Hardcover, 352 pages
Genre: YA / Dystopian / LGBT
The pulse-pounding sequel to Proxy! Inspired by The Whipping Boy and Feed, this adrenaline-fueled thriller will appeal to fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent.
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.
This heart-stopping thriller is packed with action, adventure, and heroics. Guardian will leave you breathless until the final page.
A fast-paced, thrill-ride of novel full of non-stop action, heart-hammering suspense and true friendship—just as moving as it is exhilarating. 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.
