Review by Lissa
We are back with Evan and friends for book two. Evan is heartbroken for having to leave Cyrus behind. Also, not happy about the situation she's in. Staying with a father she hardly knows. They soon find out that someone is spying on them and come up with a plan to save everyone.
Even gets a job as a reporter to help with the cause. It seemed quite easy. Something happens with her and Bryce. She ends up in the Ruins with Colin. I was so happy when she finally go to see Cyrus again. He's my favorite character out of the bunch.
Theres a lot of action in this book. I wasn't bored But just like the last one. I wasn't engrossed in it, as much as I wanted to be. I was a bit sad about that.
The world this author created is an interesting one though. The writing isn't bad and I feel that the young adult crowd would love this.
