Publisher's Summary

Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby “Leader", but she knows what she really is: a monster.

When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children’s League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America’s children - and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts - has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is saved in only one place: a flash drive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future - and who now wouldn’t recognize her.

As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam - and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart - she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?

    "Just as good as Darkest Minds"

    For a middle book, this one blows that "middle book syndrome" idea right out of the water. Wow! Every bit as action packed and drama driven as the first book, Alexandra Bracken has delivered a whopper of a sequel. The audio by Amy McFadden is superb. Every voice was distinct, every emotion appropriate. I am getting spoiled by all these voice actors and highly impatient with those who just narrate. This book is amazing. Just get it and listen to it - you're welcome.

    "Excellent, Great listen !!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Never Fade to be better than the print version?

    Haven't seen the printed version...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, would have been nice to sit and listen to entire book, but long enough and to many interuptions to do so.


    Any additional comments?

    This would be a great listen for children 10 and up. I did not realize that it was in the teen list till I looked. I liked the suspence and the anticipation book by book. Kept you thinking and kept it pretty much real. I could imagine this might or could actually happen.

    "Suspenseful"

    This reading of the second book of the trilogy made me want to keep on running or driving whenever I had it playing. I hated having to pause it because it kept me on my toes. Bracken does it again, gives the reader an excellent story with her vast vocabulary and artistic ability to paint a mental picture so vivid you feel like you are there. McFadden also keeps up a spectacular performance in continuing the voices created for each character.

    "Book is amazing"

    I loved the book, but the Narrator took some time to grow on me. She didn't do poorly by any means, however I'm picky about voices and she wasn't my mental image of Ruby's voice. I, everything was grand.

    "Riveting, Emotional Experience"

    Alexandra Bracken has created a detailed, broken world with complex, damaged characters. The story drew me in; I found myself tearing up when the characters started to cry. I found myself smiling when they achieved a victory. Alexendra is my new favorite author.

    "Not as good as first book, but still a page-turner"

    I enjoyed the introduction of the new characters in this book. Ruby got on my nerves with her self pity, but Chubs and Liam didn't disappoint. Feel in love with Vida and all want to learn more about her.

    "Fantastic yet again"

    I had to download this as soon as I finished listening to The Darkest Minds (the first book in the series) Never Fade starts of where the last ended and once again I was gripped by the characters and the further evolution of the world they liv. Once again the book is so well paced and the morality of the decisions the characters make is handled so well you will not want this story to end. Great great books a must listen.
