Waiting on Wednesday (100): Indigo Awakening + Doomed

Hi everyone! How's the week for all of you?

Here are our WoW picks for this week. I have to say, our pick this week are very different from each other, but we're excited for both!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: Indigo Awakening (The Hunted #1) by Jordan Dane
Release Date: December 18th 2012
Published by: Harlequin Teen

Summary (from Goodreads):

Because of what you are, the Believers will hunt you down.

Voices told Lucas Darby to run. Voices no one else can hear. He’s warned his sister not to look for him, but Rayne refuses to let her troubled brother vanish on the streets of LA. In her desperate search, she meets Gabriel Stewart, a runaway with mysterious powers and far too many secrets. Rayne can’t explain her crazy need to trust the strange yet compelling boy—to touch him—to protect him even though he scares her.

A fanatical church secretly hunts psychic kids—gifted “Indigo” teens feared to be the next evolution of mankind—for reasons only “the Believers” know. Now Rayne’s only hope is Gabe, who is haunted by an awakening power—a force darker than either of them imagine—that could doom them all.

Why I'm waiting for Indigo Awakening:

I'm a big fan of Jordan Dane's books, and they seem to offer something different and unique in each one. Indigo Awakening sounds like another treat from Jordan! Gifted teens being hunted (X-Men?), the Believers and mysterious boys. I know these components seem to be a staple among Paranormal books but I'm really curious to know how Jordan Dane can make her novel stand out from what's already out there.

Title: Doomed by Tracy Deebs
Release Date: January 8th 2013
Published by: Walker Childrens

Summary (from Goodreads):

Beat the Game, Save the World.
One Stuxnet type worm,
One Greek-themed MMO,
One real world scavenger hunt,
Three teenagers on the run,
And a ten-day countdown to total nuclear annihilation.

Pandora’s Box isn’t just a myth anymore …

When seventeen-year-old Pandora Walker opens an email attachment, she uploads the most frightening worm ever invented—and in doing so, brings about total technological Armageddon. Everything from the internet to communications to utilities collapses and suddenly Pandora finds herself on the run from Homeland Security, the FBI and every police department in the country, all of whom blame her for the technological wasteland sweeping across the U.S.. With the help of stepbrothers Eli and Theo, her neighbors and the two hottest guys in school-- plus codes encrypted in a world famous MMO-- she sets out on a real life scavenger hunt that only she can solve. A scavenger hunt that pits her against one of the most brilliant men in the world—the maker of the Pandora worm. Her father. Only by unraveling the clues left by him in the MMO, and in real-world places around the U.S., can they hope to beat the clock ticking the days off until the entire planet is Doomed.

Why I'm waiting for Doomed:

I first came across this book during the YA Scavenger Hunt and it just sounds so interesting. Sci-fi action packed YA book? Yes, please! And if I'm not mistaken, this is a retelling of Pandora's Box? Now I'm very curious to know how Tracy Deebs put a different spin on the story!
