The second book in this series is a lot better than the first one in my opinion. I feel there is a much stronger plot to the story and the characters have stronger personalities. I also prefer the way it is written. The chapter alternate between Lena’s experiences when she initially enters the wilds and a few years down the line and this give the story an extra boost to keep you turning pages. I think that what also appeals to me in this one is you really start to get into the active rebellion that dystopian fiction is just now and it’s that feeling of being part of fighting for the right thing that makes the book engaging.
