Fifteen-year-old Will Drake has made a career of breaking out from high-security prisons. His talents have landed him at The Rig, a specialist juvenile holding facility in the middle of the Arctic Ocean. No one can escape from The Rig. No one except for Drake...
After making some escape plans and meeting the first real friends of his life, Drake quickly realises that all is not as it seems on The Rig. The Warden is obsessed with the mysterious Crystal-X - a blue, glowing substance that appears to give superpowers to the teens exposed to it. Drake, Tristan and Irene are banking on a bid for freedom - but can they survive long enough to make it?
Drake is an action hero to rival Jason Bourne and the CHERUB team in this debut author's fantastically imagined sci-fi nightmare. (from Goodreads)
Really looking forward to The Rig! For some reason, I am immensely interested in books/shows about people trying to break out of high-security prisons :P. And a seemingly inescapable prison in the middle of the Arctic? Sounds kinda like Impel Down from One Piece! Or Azkaban. Though I doubt a juvenile prison will be quite as bad, but still. And I'm always up for a story involving superpowers - wonder what kinds there will be. The cover is also pretty cool.
