    Great sequal to the series

    This book was provided free in exchange for a fair and honest review. If you were umming-and ahhing about opening the second book in this series because you didn't LOVE the first book, I am happy to say that this book was rave worthy, and I couldn't put it down! The story flowed on in a logical and satisfying way from the first book. Hesitations I had about romances have been relieved! I would compare this book to the Hunger Games, and enjoyed it equally as much. I look forward to the next book. I was slightly disappointed by the final chapter. I personally dislike it when a book ends at the height of a physical conflict. However because this is something that many people enjoy, I didn't reflect this in my rating of it. ***Spoilers below*** The story opens up exactly where book 1 left off. Nola is waking up from passing out during the battles on the domes, and we immediately see Jeremy taking a greater place in this book. If you remember from book 1, Nola had just learnt that Kieran betrayed her, and we see the end to the love triangle - Nola is now 100% Team Jeremy. I really enjoyed the relationship development between Nola and Jeremy in this book, it felt natural and the emotions were all easy and logical to understand. Jeremy has an unrequited love for Nola, even after she tells him how she betrayed the domes. I found Jeremy's immediate acceptance of this betrayal to be a tad unrealistic (give him time to be hurt/process). Because of this, I felt that this book could have benefited from 'mentor' type character for Nola. The acceptance of her betrayal, and explanation as to how it wasn't really a betrayal would have been more realistic if given to her from an older character. I also felt that Jeremy was a little bit two dimensional; his only interests we see are loving Nola unrequitedly, and doing everything he can to protect the domes (unless it interferes with his unrequited love of Nola). We see a little more personality when he learns about his sisters transfer to another dome. I found Jeremy to become a little unlikeable here. "Then how I am supposed to forgive her", he asked Nola when he learned about the transfer, but later in the book we learn that she requested the transfer because this dome had started to alter their genes, and she was no longer able to do her trained job because she was a woman. That Jeremy couldn't have empathy for his own sister here, yet have infinite empathy for Nola, was frustrating. I really enjoyed the subplot with Catlyn, Beauford and T. I found their characters to be great, with solid personalities and backstories. The way that they helped Nola grow in her suspicion of the Domes was very organic, and the way Nola turned into a protector of them really helped us recognise her as the strong female character that is intended. I wasn't a big fan of the way Catlyn died - it did feel like a cheap way for the author to demonstrate just how dangerous their escape was going to be, and i really don't feel like the story gained anything from it. I LOVED the betrayals of both Jeremy and the Dome in this book; I found it to be excellent for the storyline (couldn't put down), and for character motivation/development. This is where we really see how far Jeremy is willing to go to protect the Dome, and how far the Domes are willing to go to protect their perfect human DNA. The references to Nola as a breeder were so brilliant, it made me growl out loud as I was reading! The closing chapter of this book was very much the same as the first book - in the middle of a very intense fight scene (with the wolves), Nola is hurt, and she loses conciousness. As this book is a first person POV, when Nola goes black, so does the story. And then the book ends. I really dislike this way of ending a book - leaving a book with a cliff hanger is one thing, but leaving a book in the middle of the climax is something else. It was incredibly disappointing, because after spending 30 chapters loving this book, the plots, subplots, and characters, I felt mad about the way the book ended. Overall I loved the book. I did take off one star because of the 2 dimensionalism of Jeremy, and the way the book ended, but I will read the third book, and probably even the whole series again.
