FROM AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR MIKE KILROY AND PERFECT FOR FANS OF THE HUNGER GAMES AND THE MAZE RUNNER COMES …
… THE 17
Zack Earnest will die today.
That’s okay. He’ll be back from the dead tomorrow.
You Only Live Once? Not here. Here the rules of life and death don’t apply.
“HIGHLY ORIGINAL AND EXTREMELY ENGAGING” — New York Book Pundit
Whisked away from his home, his only friend and his mother’s scrumptious eggs, 17-year-old outcast Zack finds himself a stranger in a strange land, surrounded by other teens from his world and many others, held hostage and thrust into barbaric games by an ancient species known only as the Ankhs.
The Ankhs are in their death throes and seek a “Spark” to survive. Zack and sixteen others just like him may possess it.
“FULL OF INGENIOUS PLOT TWISTS AND UNEXPECTED EVENTS” — Readers & Writers Journal
Along the way Zack develops a romance with the girl (in the solar system) next door, and they soon discover the Ankhs are not what they seem.
“THE ENDING IS SO. INCREDIBLY. AWESOME” — Amazon reviewer
From the best-selling author of the award-winning Nine Meals comes an epic action-adventure, coming-of-age story of hope and redemption, patience and understanding, acceptance and belonging and that, even in the center of the universe, love is a constant.
