It's a day late, but here is a long teaser from Rebooted (The Emile Reed Chronicles, 3)!
This is the last teaser I'll be sharing from the book since the release date is nearing closer. And well, I don't want to spoil anything! There's a lot that happens in this book. A lot.A low humming sound filled the otherwise silent air.The flesh treatment sprayed out of the sides of the Pod, cascading down onto my still body. I tried to ignore the nagging feeling that I wasn’t alone, choosing to believe it was nothing more than an overactive mind. Whatever it was, I knew that something was wrong.I wasn’t sure where I was, or how I’d gotten here, but the dark walls and light humming noise were indicators that I didn’t want to know.I tried to pull myself forward, but I couldn’t move. My hard drive was still locked into place, forcing me to remain still inside of the Pod. Electricity surged throughout my body before settling in my core.With each surge of power, I wanted to scream out in agony.What had they done to me? My power levels were low, and my thoughts blurred. Everything was coming in in bits and pieces – none of it making much sense.“Do you know where you are?” a voice asked.I tried to focus on the approaching figure, curious to know who it was, but it was impossible to see anything more than a blurred outline. My programming was trying to shut down everything I’d fought so hard to protect – me. It was trying to override my natural reactions, my human identity.Thirteen was trying to reclaim what I’d taken back from her yet again, but this time was different from the others. I could feel her battling for control over my thoughts and my actions. I could feel her trying to break through. I could hear her thoughts as though they were my own. She was much stronger than she’d ever been before. And I was weaker than I’d ever felt before.“Who are you?” I asked, my voice hoarse with exhaustion.“Think, Emile. You know who I am,” they said, and I did. I recognized that voice. It was the voice of the boy I’d once dreamed of a future with. The voice of a boy that I never thought I’d get to see again.“Tommy?”
I can't say much, but I do ask that when you start the book, you don't assume anything going into the book. There are a lot of secrets that are revealed in this final novel. It's an emotional read with a happy ending of sorts, I promise. =)
