Games? Who likes games? Or, I guess I should ask, who doesn’t like games? (And really, is there anyone out there who doesn’t?) Here are a few hints about the title, and let’s see who can guess.

Got it? I bet you do.
Here’s the official title of Annum Guard 2.
And here’s what it’s about. (WARNING: If you haven’t read THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN, this is very spoiler-y. You’ve been warned)!
Amanda Obermann—code name: Iris—is part of a covert government organization called the Annum Guard that travels through time to alter the course of history. When Guardians start to disappear, Iris uncovers a “blackout” squad targeting anyone who gets in the way of XP, the person responsible for the corruption within the Annum Guard, selling their missions for profit. The Guard’s new leader, Jane Bonner, rules them with an iron fist and refuses to follow any XP leads. Iris and the other Guardians, including her boyfriend, Abe, must go undercover to find the identity of XP and untangle the network of secrets and lies. The trail leads from some of the most significant events in America’s history to the highest levels of the government to Iris’s own father, a former Guardian undone by his own greed.
Can Iris change the past to save the future? How much is she willing to risk to rescue her friends? And what if she makes changes with consequences that she can’t even imagine? Playing with time is a deadly game in this sequel to The Eighth Guardian.
And guess what? You can already preorder BLACKOUT on Amazon! (And the time I’m writing this, the hardcover is priced at only $6 and change. What? That’s an insane bargain!)
