Publisher's Summary

April and Beth have escaped, and their captor is dead. Freedom is in their grasp - if only they knew where they were.

With some memories returning, April and Beth struggle to find answers to their questions. What they know is that they’ve been vaccinated against a strange virus. But what happened to their family, and to the rest of the world?

As they head out, they stumble onto the compound where their nightmare began, but the empty building only brings more mystery into their lives. Soon, they encounter others wandering on the numerous trails throughout the woods. For April, finding her family is priority one; for Beth, it's sticking to the trails.

How can April ever convince her to leave the forest...and why are they being hunted?

Interesting premise, missed opportunities

This book takes place in a possibly post-apocalyptic world. There is a virus that we have heard wiped out a lot of people, but we don’t know the full extent of the destruction and the main characters don’t have first hand evidence, only what they have read and heard others say. Bad things have happened to them and they are trying to figure out answers. Overall it was interesting. There were some missed opportunities for highlighting the desperate nature of their condition. Big spoilers ahead.....Specifically, the main character had more awareness than the others who were brainwashed/hypnotized to stay on the path in the woods. The horror of being aware in a group like this wasn’t as intensely highlighted as I would have liked. That is a super scary concept and while the main character was upset by this I wanted more. Also the whole premise of their capture and stay at CECIL was based on eugenics and getting these people with “special” abilities to survive an epidemic. I wish the characters understood earlier that the premise was based on eugenics and tried to grapple with that horror. Perhaps a big argument/blow-up in the group and the main characters wondering if their parents were complicit in this. Instead they don’t discuss it and the parents just say that when CECIL told him their plan about saving people with special abilities that they said no and then were abducted. Some additional discussion about why they were horrified by this concept would have been good. Finally perhaps I missed a description of race elsewhere but it seems the main characters (and perhaps all the characters with special abilities??) were white but the one character specifically described as having brown skin wasn’t part of the special abilities group. So is this just a weird coincidence or is this part of the creepy eugenics premise? I hope the horrors of this are explored more in Book 3.

Much more enjoyable than the first book

I received this copy of the audible for an exchange of an honest review. The narrator did an amazing job with the character's voices. I enjoyed this book more than the first book. Glad everything was explained with the plot as there was many questions unanswered in the first book.

A Good YA Story

I found myself really enjoying the YA story, it reminded me a lot of stories like Maze Runner. The Narration was very enjoyable as well. I started with book 2 and the author does a good job not leaving readers behind. I found myself at the end of the book wanting more, which is a good thing in any series.

Note at the time of this review audible did not have chapter titles.

This title was provided free for review, however, these are my honest thoughts and opinions.

Another great listen

I enjoyed this more than the first book but only because there was more action. We delve deeper into the main characters and get to meet a few more people as well. The ending is satisfying which I wasn’t sure would happen. Once again Carrie Corelli did a superb job.
I was given a free code for this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Love it!

I was given a copy of this Audio Book in return of my unbiased review.

This is the second book in a series and I did purchase and listen to the first book prior to this one.
It is a great YA series about two sisters that have escaped being used as test subjects and their search to find their family. While I really enjoyed the story, I found the sisters immature and annoying at times but if I had been locked up for years away from my family and society I might be the same. That being said this is a well written book that kept me listening! The narrator is very good and makes it easy to tell who is who with different voices.
Bottom line I would have purchased this book to listen to if I had not been given a copy and intend to finish the series!!
