Pre-pub Book Buzz: Children of Paranoia by Trevor Shane

Ugh. It's 8:30am and I am beat. Had to get the kitties up for their vet's appt this morning and I was up too late last night. Today's going to be a lazy and relaxing Saturday.

Thanks to an early postcard campaign that involved cryptic rules, I've been intrigued about today's Pre-pub book for a while. Children of Paranoia by Trevor Shane isn't due out until Sept 8, but there's no reason for me to be the only one waiting on in :)

Here's a bit about the book from Shane's website:

Since the age of eighteen, Joseph has been assassinating people on behalf of a cause that he believes in but doesn’t fully understand. The War is ageless, hidden in the shadows, governed by a rigid set of rules, and fought by two distinct sides — one good, one evil. The only unknown is which side is which. Soldiers in the War hide in plain sight, their deeds disguised as accidents or random acts of violence amidst an unsuspecting population ignorant of the brutality that is always inches away.

Killing people is the only life Joseph has ever known, and he’s one of the best at it. But when a job goes wrong and he’s sent away to complete a punishingly dangerous assignment, Joseph meets a girl named Maria, and for the first time in his life his singleminded, bloody purpose fades away.

Before Maria, Joseph’s only responsibility was dealing death to the anonymous targets fingered by his superiors. Now he must run from the people who have fought by his side to save what he loves most in this world. As Children of Paranoia reaches its heart-in-throat climax, Joseph will learn that only one rule remains immutable: the only thing more dangerous than fighting the war. . .is leaving it.

And, for your viewing pleasure, here's the book trailer for more:

I know, right?! The postcard campaign was pretty cool as well. I got three total -- two teasers, each with one rule and then the third had the cover on it. It piqued my interest, obviously!
