Inhaltsangabe zu „BROKEN SYMMETRY: A Young Adult Science Fiction Thriller“ von Dan Rix

From Dan Rix, author of the YA dystopian romance Entanglement, comes a new young adult science fiction thriller that will chill you… Eleven months after the father of sixteen-year-old Blaire Adams vanished without a trace, he's found wandering outside The Scripps Research Institute vomiting blood and speaking gibberish, his sole possession a worn leather diary filled with an unrecognizable language. He has a message for her. As he dies in her arms, he claims he never vanished. She vanished. In a nearby military quarantine zone, scientists are being called in from around the world to sequence a previously unknown strain of DNA. Scientists…and soldiers. When her father’s autopsy reveals a rare chromosomal disorder—a disorder, it turns out, she inherited—Blaire begins to suspect her father’s last words weren’t induced by amnesia. Like her dad, she has an additional set of instructions in her genes—instructions for what, doctors can’t say. Only one thing is certain: it’s what killed him…and it will kill her too. But now she’s haunted by prophetic nightmares of the Yellowjacket—a young murderer, eyes the black of charcoal, who lures his victims to suicide without ever paying them a visit. The only clue she has to his handiwork is a lingering feeling of déjà vu. That, and the nagging suspicion that all she knows is a mirage. She is certain of two things—though it may mean confiding in the wrong side of good and evil, he has the answers she needs. And he is recruiting her. Praise for Broken Symmetry... "This book was absolutely PHENOMENAL! Boiled down, the idea is about a few individuals who can walk through mirrors. Despite all the other times an author has toyed with this idea, I seriously doubt it’s ever been done this well. “Crossing over,” or walking through mirrors, has the same feel to it that the movie Inception did, meaning that the premise itself was spooky, well-fleshed out, and as scientific as such an idea can be. But what absolutely petrified me (in that delicious way that all readers secretly crave) is that everything that can go wrong does. Add to that a sizzling romance and some seriously awesome (and awesomely scary) characters, and you have yourself a YA thriller that will keep you up reading at night. This is a new all-time favorite of mine—which is saying a lot since I don’t usually like thrillers. But be warned: it will give you unrealistic expectations for how good all books should be. Oh, and for those of you who, like me, love these types of endings, everything ties up PERFECTLY in the end. Such a terrific, satisfying read." —Laura Thalassa, author of The Unearthly Part sci-fi medical thriller, part teen paranormal romance, and part technothriller, Broken Symmetry is an action packed page-turner that will keep you breathless from the first page to the very last sentence—when you finish reading it at four o’clock in the morning. WARNING: Fans of teen suspense thrillers, Broken Symmetry causes insomnia. Dan Rix writes science fiction thrillers for young adults. He lives in Santa Barbara with the love of his life. When not writing, he can be found hiking the Santa Ynez Mountains. Broken Symmetry is his second young adult science fiction thriller.
