Three seconds left to live. Once the countdown starts, it cannot be stopped. Two pawns thrown into a brutal underground reality game. Kira Jordan survived her family's murder and months on plague-devastated city streets with hard-won savvy and a low-level psi ability. She figures she can handle anything - until she wakes up in a barren room, chained next to the notorious Rogan Ellis. One reason Kira will never, ever trust Rogan, even though both their lives depend on it. Their every move is controlled and televised for a vicious exclusive audience. And as Kira's psi skill unexpectedly grows and Rogan's secrets prove evermore deadly, Kira's only chance of survival is to risk trusting him as much as her instincts. Even if that means running head-on into the one trap she can't escape. GAME OVER.
Would you listen to Countdown again? Why?
I would in a few months or so. It is such an interesting plot, and has lots of suspense, so it's far from dull.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Countdown?
The tightrope act was pretty cool...
Would you listen to another book narrated by Virginia Bosch?
Only if she were to work on her voices. Her Rogan and her Kira would at times be the same voice. Very confusing and quite irritating. I do like her Kira voice though, she reminded me of Emma Galvin, but of course Emma's characters have very distinct differences. I hope someone gives Virginia this note.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
This would make an excellent movie!
