Hades by Candice Fox

Can't tell you the ending but it was brilliant. Haven't see it coming. I was thinking and hoping something terribly dark and awful but I wasn't on the good road. 
And I really like when an author is catching me off guard with a plot.
This thriller is original, very well written.

The Ark, Annabel Smith.

Everyone is talking about this novel. And so they should. Independent, multimedia, multiplatform, it’s most certainly something new. It simultaneously paints a glimpse of a very convincing future for humanity while also unveiling the future of the ebook. Resource shortages and social breakdown until the day the Earth’s servers all, finally, blink off – rendered in a new, digital imagining of literature. This is the future; wake up and smell the data.

Four and a half stars. Really great.
