Devil in the Device brims with brilliant world-building and richly-imagined characters--a great encapsulation of everything that makes science fiction so much fun!"  --Andrea Tang, author of Rebelwing and Renegade Flight Zhade's power might be going to his head.   Newly on the throne, he's still getting used to wearing Maret's face, but he can't deny that the influence it affords him has its perks. So when the magic of Eerensed starts to turn deadly, Zhade must master the Crown if he's going to save his people, and Tsurina's destructive plans for Eerensed aren't going to make that easy. Worse, he's starting to see her point.   Andra is underground.   Assumed dead by the people of Eerensed, she must stay hidden in the city's depths if she's going to live long enough to build the rocket that will finally save the colonists from this dying planet. But when Andra hears voices urging her to destroy everything, she starts to dig deeper into her subconcious. What she discovers leads her to question whether she's destined to be a savior after all.   Battling the dangerous forces buried within their minds, Andra and Zhade will have to find a way to work together before two power-hungry leaders and a deadly swarm of rogue technology destroy humanity for good. Lora Beth Johnson delivers a stunning conclusion to the Goddess in the Machine duology with this brilliant novel. Part political conspiracy, part technological thriller, its deeply emotional core deftly explores what it means to be human, and how to hold on when everything seems lost.  … (more)

What a doozy of a sequel!

Goddess in the Machine was one of my favorite reads last year so let me tell you how excited I was to be able to dive back into the world. And, holy wow, it did not disappoint!

Lora Beth Johnson has written an absolutely fantastic ending to the Goddess in the Machine duology. She hit with twist after twist after twist and I didn't expect any of them. To be able to write a story and throw surprise after surprise at the reader is a rare talent considering most YA novels are terribly predictable (though, that's not necessarily a bad thing :)).

If you enjoyed Goddess in the Machine, DEFINITELY pick up Devil in the Device. The story is thrilling, action-packed, and will most likely keep you on the edge of your seat while reading way into the wee hours of the night.

Big thank you to Penguin Teen via NetGalley for the e-ARC to read, enjoy, and honestly review. ( )
