Everyone gets the Mark. It gives all the benefits of citizenship. Yet if getting the Mark is such a good thing, then why does it feel so wrong?
The Mark is a tattoo that must be swiped by special scanners for everything from employment to transportation to shopping. It’s almost Logan Langly’s 13th birthday and he knows he should be excited about getting the Mark, but he hasn’t been able to shake the feeling he’s being watched. Not since his sister went to get her Mark five years ago . . . and never came back.
So, the End Of The World! is kind of a hot topic right now. *SLIGHT understatement* Left Behind has left us with lots of apocolypse fiction wreaking panic in bookstores and libraries everywhere! Now, I’ll admit I went through a pouring-over-the-Book-of-Revelations-multiple-times stage, (the mark of the beast is given in the hand! -that’s where microchips go! -the apocolypse is coming! OH MY!) but I outgrew it and moved on to 6th grade. Lol.
So when I saw the blurb for Swipe I was like, “Really? Not another book about the Mark of the Beast masquerading as a microchip/tatoo/brain implant! Sigh…” I finally decided to give it a try and I couldn’t stop reading! Author Evan Angler takes readers on a spectacular ride filled with twists and turns that transforms a tired gimmick into a fantastic, brain-bending story! I can’t wait for more, and yes there will be sequels.
*Swipe is also now on the list of books for my hubby to read which is about the highest recommendation I can give 🙂
