On My Wishlist #4

Jelikož jsem byla přes víkend indisponována, On My Wishlist vychází teprve dneska. Bude to trochu navazovat na další recenzi, která by měla vyjít v pátek. Nemám ani jeden díl, takže tentokrát ukážu všechny.

Set in the near future, BZRK is the story of a war for control of the human mind.  Charles and Benjamin Armstrong, conjoined twins and owners of the Armstrong Fancy Gifts Corporation, have a goal:  to turn the world into their vision of utopia.  No wars, no conflict, no hunger.  And no free will.  Opposing them is a guerrilla group of teens, code name BZRK, who are fighting to protect the right to be messed up, to be human.  This is no ordinary war, though.  Weapons are deployed on the nano-level. The battleground is the human brain.  And there are no stalemates here:  It’s victory . . . or madness.
BZRK unfolds with hurricane force around core themes of conspiracy and mystery, insanity and changing realities, engagement and empowerment, and the larger impact of personal choice. Which side would you choose?  How far would you go to win?

The entire BZRK cell--including Noah and Sadie--has been left in pieces after the last round of battle with the Armstrong Twins, conjoined brother who plot to rob mankind of its free will. Vincent's mind is shattered, and his memories hold dangerous secrets--secrets that Lear, BZRK's mysterious leader, will stop at nothing to protect. 
Meanwhile, Bug Man has taken control of the President's brain, but playing with sanity is a dangerous game. The consequences can spiral way out of control, and the Armstrong Twins are not people Bug Man can afford to disappoint.

The nano is as terrifying, exhilarating, and unpredictable as ever. But the wall of secrets that surrounds it is cracking. What will it reveal? And once the dust has settled, who will be sane enough to find out?

This is the explosive conclusion to the BZRK trilogy, from the author of Gone. Noah and Sadie have seen death, and it holds no fear for them. Madness does, though. And losing each other. But they will not sit back, helpless witnesses to an invisible apocalypse. The world is being destroyed from the inside out. It's time to take up the fight once more, in the streets and in the nano. And they'll give everything they have to stop the Armstrong Twins. But are the Twins the ultimate enemy? Nobody has ever known the identity of Lear, the shadowy leader of BZRK. Just who have they been fighting for? As madness spreads like a plague, one thing becomes terrifyingly clear: this was Lear's game all along. And Lear hasn't been playing fair.


První díl jsem si půjčila z čiré zvědavosti a naprosto mě uchvátil. Stejně tak ten druhý, který se mi dostal do rukou docela nedávno (a na který budu brzy psát recenzi). Nikdo mi nevymluví, že tahle série je prostě geniální a že obálky jsou naprosto perfektní. A co víc, poslední díl, Apocalypse, vyjde už za pár měsíců! Michael Grant je jednoduše úžasný spisovatel a já se nemůžu dočkat, až budu mít všechny tyhle krásky jednou doma.
