Blurb: Remko Brant had never been so sure of anything as escaping the Authority City with Carrington Hale. But bravado comes easy when you have nothing to lose. Now a husband, father, and the tactical leader of the Seers, Remko has never had so much at risk.
As he and his team execute increasingly dangerous rescue missions inside the city, they face growing peril from a new enemy. Recently appointed Authority President Damien Gold claims to be guiding a city shaken by rebellion into a peaceful, harmonious future. But appearances can be deceiving. In order to achieve his dangerous ambitions, Gold knows he must do more than catch the rebels–he must destroy the hope their message represents . . . from the inside out.
With dissension in his own camp–and the CityWatch soldiers closing in–Remko feels control slipping through his fingers. To protect those he loves, he must conquer his fears and defeat Gold . . . before one of them becomes his undoing.
Review: It was around the end when I actually started to enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed the first, mainly because of the emotion written in there along with the surprise twist at the end. I sure didn’t expect it and it had finally gotten around to the actual purpose of the book.
The entire book though, was not as good as the first. The first was emotional and engaging and I couldn’t put it down. This one…just felt like so much filler and I got the feeling that the author was writing this just because she promised her audience a trilogy.
It just felt like a lot of it was lazy writing. A lot of names being overused and a lot of he said/she said. It felt like I was reading a children’s book because of all the overuse of the names.
Though, another thing I did like, along with the twist and emotion at the end, was the journal entries from the victims and the villains plot.
Thank you for reading my review.
