Beat the game. Save the world.

Pandora’s just your average teen, glued to her cell phone and laptop, surfing Facebook and e-mailing with her friends, until the day her long-lost father sends her a link to a mysterious site featuring twelve photos of her as a child. Unable to contain her curiosity, Pandora enters the site, where she is prompted to play her favorite virtual-reality game, Zero Day. This unleashes a global computer virus that plunges the whole world into panic: suddenly, there is no Internet. No cell phones. No utilities, traffic lights, hospitals, law enforcement. Pandora teams up with handsome stepbrothers Eli and Theo to enter the virtual world of Zero Day. Simultaneously, she continues to follow the photographs from her childhood in an attempt to beat the game and track down her father, her one key to saving the world as we know it. Part The Matrix, part retelling of the Pandora myth, Doomed has something for gaming fans, dystopian fans, and romance fans alike.

"'I really like you Pandora. I don't want to make a mistake with you.'
Life's full of mistakes ?????. And if you don't kiss me now, when are you going to? We're almost out of time.'
'I won't let us run out of time.'"   
Sorry yo! Had to mask the identity of the is a love triangle ;P
And because I really like this one too....
  "There's something inside and I strain to see it. Nearly cry out when I can finally read the word. 'Hope.'......We might very well live long, poductive lives. They won't be the lives we had once planned for ourselves but in this place, at this moment, that doesn't matter."

  Holy shit you guys!! This book was fantastically amazing! It totally rocked my socks off. ;D I have to admit that I prefer the old cover but the cover has nothing to do with the pure genius of this book. I had the worst time putting this book down…and at times I had no choice because I was reading it during the last two weeks of school before winter break, which meant I had finals to study for, which meant if I wanted good grades, I was going to have to put the book down and do some work. It. Sucked. I wanted nothing more than to sit down and read the book until every single page was gobbled up and digested. (ermm that didn’t sound as good as I hoped haha).
  What would you do if the world as you knew it came crashing down because of a video game. Yupp! You heard that right. A video game. Its Pandora’s seventeenth birthday and to her surprise she gets an email from her dad. The same dad that hasn’t been around for years. The same dad that has her mom panicked telling Pandora that she is never to speak, email, write, or see her dad…ever. There aren’t even any pictures of Pandora and her father…and she was what, five when he left? So twelve years of no communication from her father and she finally gets some. The email has promises of old letters that were written to her and always returned , never before seen photos of them and an explanation to why he left. Never would have Pandora thought that that email, those pictures would be the worm that starts world domination. Domination that is only going to stop if Pandora plays the game.
  Like I said…Holy. Shit. This book was absolutely mind blowing. It was fast paced and completely captivating. I was hooked from page one. Tracy Deebs wove a perfectly unique, action packed story that is sure to take over the hearts of gamers and readers a like..hell, I think everyone should read it but that’s just me. At the beginning I had a little bit of a rough time trying to distinguish between what was going on in the game (especially the talking) and what was going on in the real world but after a while I had no problem easing in to the switch. When I really got into it (which ended up being every time I opened its pages) I had trouble distinguishing the lines between the book and the real world. Tracy is such an amazing writer where that is just the only way to read her book. Its not too often a book completely captures you like that but Doomed does that too you. I literally felt as if I was there every step of the way through Pandora’s journey. The writing for Doomed is clear and imaginative. Tracy definitely doesn’t hold back. 
  The story is told from Pandora’s point of view being that she is the protagonist but Eli and Theo were equally important. O my goodness. These boys! Theo is so smart. He is always one step ahead. He is quick on his feet and always so calm in the toughest situations. Theo is broody and mysterious. Oh! And he is totally hot.  He isn’t the best with jokes and taking things lightly. A smile from him is a rare occurance. He tends to be more in his own thoughts but when he steps out he totally shines. Then there is Eli. The one who can make light on things. He jokes around is more carefree.The one who can tell a joke or make a face to ease the tension...that is why I love much!!! 

  I honestly have no clue what else to say other than you need to read ASAP. I loved this book with a passion. It is something that makes you reflect and wonder. What would you do? Would you be able to survive? How would you act? How would you feel? It was almost scary. I have nothing else to say..I am leaving this review now. Read. Love. You need this book. You will NOT be sorry you read it and you will thank me later ;D
