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 special juvenile holding facility in the middle of the Arctic Ocean. No one can escape from the Rig. After hatching some escape plans-and making the first real friends of his life-Drake quickly realizes 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?
Twenty-five-year-old British-born Joe Ducie currently resides in Perth, Western Australia. Joe attended Edith Cowan University and graduated in 2010 with a Degree in Counterterrorism, Security and Intelligence. Joe has also studied Creative and Professional Writing at Curtin University.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unexpected I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this book, but it was simply a different genre that I was not used to. It was both captivating and left me shocked at times. The story tells of a young boy (Will Drake) being sent to a juvenile prison in the middle of the ocean, but Will is good at breaking out of prisons and is determined to get out of that one too, only there is something "fishy" going on at the prison which might make his escape much more challenging.
