Triple Threat Blog Tour & Giveaway
There are people in this world who are Nobody. No one sees them. No one notices them. They live their lives under the radar, forgotten as soon as you turn away.
That’s why they make the perfect assassins.
The Institute finds these people when they’re young and takes them away for training. But an untrained Nobody is a threat to their organization. And threats must be eliminated.
Sixteen-year-old Claire has been invisible her whole life, missed by the Institute’s monitoring. But now they’ve ID’ed her and send seventeen-year-old Nix to remove her. Yet the moment he lays eyes on her, he can’t make the hit. It’s as if Claire and Nix are the only people in the world for each other. And they are—because no one else ever notices them.
From Jennifer Lynn Barnes
THE SOCIETY OF SENSORS
In NOBODY, the male protagonist has been raised by a group known as The Society for one purpose and one purpose alone: to kill.
I’ve always been fascinated by secret societies—not just the kind I walked by every day in the nine years I was a student at Yale (there was a secret society “tomb” across the street from my grad office, and another down the block), but also groups like the Knights Templar and the Freemasons. I think there’s something compelling about the idea of an organization with centuries of history—and more power than anyone knows.
In NOBODY, that group is The Society of Sensors, a thousand-year-old organization dedicated to doing two things: studying “energy” and eliminating threats. At one point in history, the Society’s members were probably considered alchemists, but they aren’t just scientists. They’re responsible for an untold number of mysterious deaths stretching back nearly a millennia. They’ve seen—and engineered—the rise and fall of empires, and though no one knows The Society exists, they have their fingers in a lot of political pots, even now. The Senate, the CIA, foreign governments… all’s fair in love and war and secret societies.
At the center of all of this is seventeen-year-old Nix.
According to The Society’s dogma, people are born with a certain energy to them, and when two people interact, they swap energy. These energy swaps are at the root of all human emotions that we feel for one another, and they also contribute toward our ability to pay attention to, focus on, and remember one another. Centuries of research have taught The Society that some individuals are born with abnormal levels of energy. Some are born with so much energy that it insulates them from being affected by other people, while making them extra good at influencing others. The Society refers to these people as Nulls; most of us would probably call them sociopaths—the kind who are particularly good at charming and influencing others.
The Society was formed with the goal of finding Nulls and killing them, but in the modern world, the people in charge of this ancient organization have a variety of other mandates—and they are not in the practice of dirtying their own hands. Rather, they use another kind of “aberration” to do it—a Nobody.
That’s where Nix comes in. He’s been raised knowing that he has deficient energy levels. No one, the Society tells him, will ever really see him or remember him or love him. He is a drain on this planet and The Society’s resources, and the only way he can have any impact on the world is to be their tool.
But in the grand tradition of fictional assassins—think Nikita or Bourne—The Society’s weapon turns out to have a mind of his own.
