The Countdown is a âgameâ where the contestants must compete in six different levels in order to survive. If they fail one level they will be âeliminatedâ. Rogan chose to play the game; it was either play and have a chance at winning freedom or spend the rest of his life in prison for a crime he did not commit. Kira on the other hand did not choose to play. She was snatched up and forced into this game where she has no control. Now the two must work together and put aside their differences if they want to make it to the end of the game and ultimately earn their freedom, and life.

Countdown was not the typical Michelle Rowen book. This book was not so much paranormal, as with her other series, but definitely sci-fi. It was refreshing to see a romance bloom from something other than the typical female in distress, male rescues female, male female fall in love situation. This book is the opposite. Rogan was the one who always seemed to need rescuing. Michelle Maddox aka Michelle Rowen never fails whether it is paranormal romance or sci-fi action romance. This book leaves you on the edge of your seat counting down the levels, until the very end.
