Tyler Bennett trusts no one. Just another foster kid bounced from home to home, he’s learned that lesson the hard way. Cue world’s tiniest violin. But when strange things start happening—waking up with bloody knuckles and no memory of the night before or the burner phone he can’t let out of his sight— Tyler starts to wonder if he can even trust himself.
Even stranger, the girl he’s falling for has a burner phone just like his. Finding out what’s really happening only leads to more questions…questions that could get them both killed. It’s not like someone’s kidnapping teens lost in the system and brainwashing them to be assassins or anything, right? And what happens to rogue assets who defy control?
In a race against the clock, they’ll have to uncover the truth behind Project Pandora and take it down—before they’re reactivated. Good thing the program spent millions training them to kick ass…Goodreads.com
With shades of Jason Bourne, morally ambiguous characters, and trained teenage assassins, I absolutely devoured this book in two days. This is a dark, intense YA read I found difficult to put down.
Although this book is heavy on action, all the characters are captivating and well-developed – but by far, my favorite is Hades. He’s cunning, dangerous, and untrustworthy, but with such a tragic backstory, I dare you not to like him. He made the book for me. I’ve read the author is working on a novella detailing Hades’s past – can’t wait to get my hands on that one.
Told from four POVs, I’d highly recommend this YA sci-fi/thriller to older teens and fans of espionage, conspiracy theories, and psychological thrillers. Project Pandora knocked it out of the park.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the digital ARC.
