This was a well written sequel to a good (and a bit formulaic) dystopian series. There is a lot of conspiracy and government rebellion that makes for action-packed sequences. There is also a not-to-overbearing romantic storyline that stresses the Romeo and Juliet nature of Day and June’s growing relationship. Day is from the streets and June is from the wealthy government lifestyle. I liked that we got to visit the Colonies in this book. I think what held me up from enjoying this book as much as Legend is the faceless villain in the government. I wanted an actual person(s) to see as the threat in the story and I never really got that. I found this book suffered a bit from middle book syndrome, however there is a dramatic ending that will make you want to read the conclusion to this series. ( )

Despite the action in this book, I just couldn't engage with it. I found the first half particularly slow and June annoyed me most of the time. The ending, however, was a cliff-hanger, but without giving anything away, all I can say is: really? ( )

Excellent sequel to Legend! This is one of those rare examples where the sequel is as good as or even better than the first book! A great dystopian series to recommend! ( )
