Memes & Features, Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday #39: Phoenix Island by John Dixon

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers can rant and rave about any upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. For my addition, I will be spotlighting an upcoming book AND sometimes I will throw in a video game release that I am dying to get my hands on!

The story that inspired CBS TV’s Intelligence. Phoenix Island was supposed to be a boot camp for troubled children. But as one boy learns, the secrets of this jungle are as vast as they are deadly.

When sixteen-year-old boxing champ Carl Freeman jumps in to defend a helpless stranger, he winds up in real trouble a two-year sentence at an isolated boot camp for orphans. Carl is determined to tough it out, earn a clean record, and get on with his life. Then kids start to die.

Realizing Phoenix Island is actually a Spartan-style mercenary organization turning throwaway kids into super-soldier killers, Carl risks everything to save his friends and stop a madman bent on global destruction.







I’ve never seen the show Intelligence or heard of it, but….. I so want this booK!!!!!! OMG…WANT. Spartan style mercenary camp?????? HECK YEAH times a million! It kinda reminds me of another Spartan camp that I adore….(yeah you know what I’m about to refer to) the infamous Spartan’s from my favorite game HALO!!! Anytime I can make a HALO reference, well, ya girls gonna. ha!









So what about you? What games or books are you waiting on?
