I read the first book of this series and loved it and was so excited to see this one. And man I was not disappointed. It picks up where the other one ended and the tragic story of Arena and her brother Gabe continues. It is so thrilling and deep, I could not stop reading it. The struggles, the hell they face daily is intense. And their strength grows as they do. Their journey to find their friends leads them to a place they did not expect and it changed everything once again. War, death, betrayal and the pure fight to survive grab you and hold you prisoner. I love the details as much as the first book and the strong characters made it another joy to read. It has a wonderful smooth flow and keeps your attention. I hated to see it end. J.E. Plemons is such a talented writer and I love how he thinks and how deep his imagination goes. I want more! I recommend this book highly to everyone and I look forward to more of this saga .You will love both books. They are both favorites of mine and ones that stay in your mind and heart long after the last page.
