Beat the game. Save the world.
Pandora’s just your average teen, glued to her cell phone and laptop, surfing Facebook and e-mailing with her friends, until the day her long-lost father sends her a link to a mysterious site featuring twelve photos of her as a child. Unable to contain her curiosity, Pandora enters the site, where she is prompted to play her favorite virtual-reality game, Zero Day. This unleashes a global computer virus that plunges the whole world into panic: suddenly, there is no Internet. No cell phones. No utilities, traffic lights, hospitals, law enforcement. Pandora teams up with handsome stepbrothers Eli and Theo to enter the virtual world of Zero Day. Simultaneously, she continues to follow the photographs from her childhood in an attempt to beat the game and track down her father, her one key to saving the world as we know it. 
Part The Matrix, part retelling of the Pandora myth, Doomed has something for gaming fans, dystopian fans, and romance fans alike.


My feelings.
OMG! I’m afraid I’m going to start babbling about how much I loved this book and what it did make me feel!
I was having a hard time trying to read the new books I had, I had my e-reader broke and the only way to read my e-books was in my computer. But well, I did. Because I had a stop in the blog tour of Doomed and even though I wasn’t doing a review I had to know what it was about.
And Doomed made me go back to read! My heart was beating like a crazy, just thinking about the things that I thought that might happen!
It was exciting and a fast read.

The Plot.
That was my favorite part of the book!
I knew thanks to the guest post that the author made for me (Read it here) that she worked hard creating the awesome plot and joining the mythology with the read/modern time.
I loved learning about the Box of Pandora in the voice of a new, young and modern Pandora. The idea of opening a file instead of the box was thrilling! Spectacular!!
And then, trying to save the world through a game with the help of two hotties… man! That was epic!
I never read a book like that. That leads me through two different worlds while staying in the same world I’m living. It had ugly creatures, magic and a lot of action, though Pandora was just a girl like me and you.

The characters.
Pandora: Strong. Lonely. Smart. Lovely.
She’s the kind of heroine that I love to read of. She has the weight of what she did in her shoulder and yet she is willing to risk her life to repair everything even when that wasn’t her fault.

Theo and Eli: They’re stepbrothers and they’re really different. One is sweet and funny while the other is serious and rough. But both cared about Pandora in a strong and loyal way. At the beginning I didn’t believe why they were helping her if they barely knew each other. But at the ending of the book I understood and I loved them even more.

The other characters: They did what they had to do. I loved that almost the whole book was focused in the three main characters and they didn’t need anyone else. I’d love it even if it was just Pandora in the whole story.

The love story.
The romance wasn’t the main point in the book… but man! I loved that relationship between Pandora-Eli and Pandora-Theo… I admit that it was a little cliche because I knew from the very start who they were and that they will be important in the development. Plus, Pandoma was really difficult to melt!!

What I didn't like.
I am completely against the idea of the end of the world just because the internet doesn't work or there are no lights... People can survive without technology, of couse! But I admit that it didn't bother me the way it could because I understand that THIS IS FICTION! 
And maybe there could be some mistakes in the story-line, but I'm not an expert, so that was not really aweful for me.

The ending.
Amazing!!! I want more. I need more!
It was a race between my nerves and my heartbeat. I can’t wait to read the next one! I need the next one!
I’m sure you’ll love this book. If you like fantasy, action, a little of drama, a fast read and a page turner, then Doomed is the right book for you!
