  • Exciting as the first

    This is the second book in a trilogy, and I did read the first one before opening this one...which I would highly recommend doing, since the second book takes off where the first left off. While the first book centered on Eve's life in section Eleven, she's now in the outside world. And what a different place it is! The contrast makes it clear how constricting her life was before and how unfair things are. The new world is bright, bold, and very well described, making the reader sink in just as much as book one, but this time, with a totally different flair. This gives the dystopian aspect tons of clout and makes the world sit. Eve also gains flair in this book as there's finally time and concentration on the character arc end of things. Not only is the world around her different than what she's learned to know, but she herself has a lot to learn. Add the changing relationships and the knowledge that she can't remain, and there's more than a little inner conflict as well. In other words, this book offers the perfect middle as she develops from book one to, what I assume she will be in, book three. The action and tension are high enough to keep the pages turning, but there's also enough space for emotion and development on other levels. This one packs unexpected twists and turns, especially at the end, and has more than enough relationship points to add depth as well. The ending is one that makes it impossible not to want to pick up book three. So, I'm now just going to have to wait and see what happens next...and I'm definitely more than a little curious. I received an ARC and enjoyed this one quite a bit.

  • Engaging and Thrilling!!

    This book is more compelling to read than the first one for me. It follows where the first book has ended. The books' theme mainly describes the main issues happening in compound eleven and aboveground. The lies and deceits of the all-powerful people at the top unfolded made this dystopian-themed story more engaging to read. The main characters went through a lot in this book that made them resilient and their relationship stronger. This story is timely and mind awakening that will surely appeal to younger audiences. Overall this was a delightful and exciting read for me. I can't wait to read Eve and Wren's next adventure. I'm grateful to the author, the publisher, and Netgalley for allowing me to read and review a copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
