"Me? A leader? Okay, I did prove that there's more to Inside than we knew. That a whole world exists beyond this cube we live in. And finding that led to a major rebellion—between worker scrubs like me and the snobby uppers who rule our world. Make that ruled. Because of me, we're free. I thought that meant I was off the hook, and could go off on my own again—while still touching base with Riley, of course. He's the one upper I think I can trust. But then we learned that there's outside and then there is Outside. And something from Outside wants IN."

I read the first book and loved it so I had to find out what happens in the series so yes because it is a series. However, the booked really dragged in the beginning and didn't pick up action until 2/3rd's of way through. The author spends a lot of time reviewing the first book which I had just completed so the review was boring and continues throughout the book. The scenes are as realistic as they come! That's why the book was so boring because the middle of the book had a lot of bureaucracy, indecisiveness, and waiting. You just wait and wait for Trella to do something, anything! The ending is packed with action, love scenes, and is very well written. If you have completely forgotten the first book and need a review then you probably won't find the review so annoying in this one.
The ending was great and well written. I am so happy that finally the writer creates action and suspense. Because of the ending alone, I will probably read the next book in the series when it comes out.
I hated her voice for Trella because it was so ugly sounding but her voices for everyone else especially the men were amazing. She can sound just like a man and she does very well with voice distinguishes.
A few reviewers have said that they found the beginning of this slow. I am not certain why that would be-- I found it moved along nicely. Trella is experiencing a period of self-doubt, and she goes back and forth in her mind about her role in the new society. However, there is a lot of action with bombs going off in Inside, vital systems at risk, and people dying. It's a great follow-up to Inside Out, so if you liked that,you'll love this.
This picks up right where Inside Out leaves off. They have figured out that Outside is Outer Space, and they are aboard a space ship. Not everyone is happy with the way things are being run in the wake of the rebellion, and there are forces rising against the people making the rules. There is also something on the Outside, that wants In.
Trella is overwhelmed by her new responsibilities, and has a tendency to get herself into a lot of trouble.
I found myself wondering constantly through this one just what exactly would happen, and how they could possibly manage to work things out.
The idea that this book plays with, continuing from the first book, is fascinating. But this one was a little too formulaic for me and the writing lacked much needed finesse. Still, though, fantastic idea.
I did not expect this one to go where it went either. Sometimes the second book isn't as good, but this one is good and kept me wondering, what next?
I've listened to all ten books and they are all equally great.
Riley's great gift of getting herself out of trouble.
Amanda Ronconi did and excellent job expressing each character.
Yes, It took me three days to listen to the book but that was because I didn't have the time to listen to it in one sitting.
I have listened to all ten of Maia V Snyder's book and I was surprisingly captivated by all of them. I will be a loyal follower.
I love the vampire, shifter, Paranormal, sci-fi fantasy Books! Favorite Narrator is Amanda Ronconi and Favorite Authors are Rachel Vincent, Jeaniene Frost, Molly Harper, and now Suzanne Wright. If your in to the same Genre I highly recommend these Authors!
The first book was great, the second.... is even better! This is a different take on another way of life that makes you believe, wow that could happen in the future!
Amanda does great narration and keeps you interested in the characters. I am hoping another one is on the way with the same Narrator!
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
Yes Trella is great, but I Logan really cracked me up. Super smart and funny.
You know I have to say her boy voices are very interesting. She doesn't just drop her pitch, she plays with the different timbres of her voice and creates come unique voices.
Yup, it was a good time.
It's so funny. I read other reviews that mention the beginning through the middle being boring. I actually enjoyed it, liking to know how the society ran after the take over. I really enjoyed it...until the Outsiders. Come on. It was about as Cliche as you can get. It completely ruined it for me. Also, I'm all about the happy ever after, but the ending was boring. Boring. Boring. I did give the story 4 stars though, because as mentioned I really liked the majority of it.
