Publisher's Summary

What's a girl to do when her only option to live means destroying everyone she loves?

Claren didn't ask to join her society's leadership. She was forced into it. And under the watchful eyes of her superiors, she's left with no choice but to carry out a mission that will destroy everything she believes in, including the man who has her heart.

The government wants her to kill the rebels. The rebels want her to play the part and infiltrate the city's leadership. Can she find a way to maintain the trust of both sides, or will she die trying? And who exactly can Claren trust? 

Find out in the second book of the Ember Society series. Full of suspense, mystery, romance, and more twists and turns than a roller coaster, this dystopian world will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Awesome

This book was fantastic! It was even better than the first one and I really enjoyed the first one. This should be required reading for older middle school/ high-school reading. If I had kids, this is something I would totally give them to read. Maybe kids these days (I sound like I'm so old lol), might understand what it really means to treat everyone equally (socialism) and would be less likely to just hand over their freedoms to "president" Biden and his far left cronies. But I digress, before I end up writing my own book right here and now about all the awful things going on in the U.S lately.
Also, I really loved the ending this time. Poor Claren! I hate that she want to just take off and leave because her feelings were hurt! She was doing big, important things. I'd kill for an exciting life like that. I can't wait to see what happens next!!

Great Continuation

We picked up right where book 1 ended. Be aware that these are not stand alone books. Often the 2nd book in a series tends to be a bridge and a tad slow. This book is not that!


New characters are introduced, relationships are developed and deepened, plus Claren begins to truly mature.


Heartache and yelling at Claren, no no no don't do it frequently left my mouth. Lol, as a mom of a 24yr old girl I can't help it. :-P


Claren is very bright but still quite young and naive of the world around her. She's kinda "drunk the koolaide" you could say. I adore Rafe and their empathic connection. Annnddd I like Felix nearly as well. I think of him as the hottie played on The Hunger Games, Finnick Odair ;-) and Rafe looking like Gale. So, there's certainly a triangle but even I don't know who I think she's best suited to.


So, I think I can visualize the outside of the center & the Outsiders camps better than inside the Capital itself. Which is fine with me. Everything else has enough detail, descriptions & world building to satisfy me. :-)


Narrator and how she reads as if the book has absolutely no errors is awesome. :-D


Also, started book #3 immediately. Yup, I used an Audible credit and am excited to get into it! =)


My star ratings include these 5 elements:

1★ story line

1★ engaging characters

1★ use of world building/descriptions

1★ narration or editing

1★ the ending

Captivating & Now Anxiously Awaiting Book 3!

This is book two and it was honestly just as thrilling as the first book. These are not stand alone books, they really need to be read in order... It would be like reading the third Harry Potter book without reading the first two. This author does a fantastic job of sucking you into her stories and creates some deep attachments to the different characters. So far this series has been clean and free of bad language, steamy bedroom scenes, and nothing too graphic with the violence. There is a romance side to this story but stays in the kissing realm. I would place these as being great for middle school readers through adults. I don't want to give anything away, so I will just say if you like the dystopian genre then you will love this series! The narrator really does a great job and was fun and easy to listen to. —I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A thrilling story!

This second book in the Ember Society is just as gripping as the first. Not knowing who to trust will keep you on the edge of your seat as Claren tries to figure out what’s really going on.

Once again AR Colbert pulled me right in. Her characters are realistic and it didn’t take me long to develop strong feelings about them... some I absolutely love, others are pure evil! I will be anxiously awaiting the next book.

Jennifer Groberg has the perfect voice for Claren. It was as if I was watching everything as it was happening. A truly enjoyable experience.

Great sequel

What a fantastic sequel! This story really intensified and added new dynamics while still maintaining the social and political tension of the first book. I loved the relationships in this series, and the conflict that went along with the different groups. Claren is such a great after because of the way she handles situations that are not black and white. She struggles to sift through who and what to trust in a very realistic way. The writing is beautifully done and so creative! I would definitely recommend.
