Publisher's Summary

In the final moments of The Culling, Reagan Scott was betrayed. This betrayal changes everything. Not just for the Culling but for the country.

As the competition for Presidential Couple continues and the final four are solidified, the campaigning begins, sending Reagan on a tour of the townships to vie for the votes and hearts of the nation. Though she's finally with the one who has always had her heart, everything else seems to be spinning out of control. With enemies both within the Culling and outside of it, it's not a matter of if something will happen...but when.

When the world comes crashing down around her, will Reagan break under pressure? How far can she make it in the Culling? And more importantly, how far is she willing to go to protect the ones she loves?

Every bit as good as the first - LOVE this series

This book was every bit as good as the first. I had a hard time stopping this book each night. It just kept me going. The narrator is great. The story is so much fun and yet suspensful as well. I just love all he peronalities of the charaters. You can't go wrong with this series. So clever!!! Can't wait for the next book.

Repetitive at times

The story was good but a little less repetition on the mushy stuff. We get it she loves him, he has muscles, there’s sexual tension. You can only say the same thing so many times before it becomes eye rolling.

Main Character becomes a self righteous brat.

The main character becomes a brat. Also, the author continues her lack of creative phrasing. Not worth it. I quit the book partway through.

Good listen, only 2 small complaints

I have really enjoyed this series so far. It is an easy listen, even as an adult and not a younger reader. My only complaint is that the main character tends to repeat herself often which in turn makes the book slightly longer than necessary in my opinion. Also, she can be slightly immature sounding considering she is working towards being in charge of a country. The target (younger) listener probably wouldn't mind either of these at all.

More of the same, nothing really happens...

The book started good, with exciting things happening, new characters, and an interesting story, but after a while it’s just more of the same. I still have 3 hrs to go, and for the past 3 nothing really has happened. The love story just became a common love story where the couple worries about each other all the time, but there’s no excitement or adventure.
I’m gonna leave it unfinished, and see if I find another more interesting distopian novel

Better then book 1

I am much happier with this book then I was for book one. The characters develop more personal growth, the main character and secondary characters. While in the first book, the actions of the characters did not match their personalities, this one was more believable. The development of the relationship was well thought out. And the writer dropped the use (mostly) of “heck” and other unrealistic substitutes for curse words.

Reagan is Digressing in Age and Character Development

I really enjoyed the first book, but this one is just bleh :( I’m confused at how this naive girl who “smooches” and “snoodles” would ever be able to run the country and the fact that she is the best option for the job scares the crap out of me. I hoped that the second book would be better than the first, but after the hundredth “yikes” and “sheesh” it totally lost me. Reagan reminds me of a scared little girl who should stay far away from anything to do with major life decisions. This book is for very young adults who love the prim and proper ways of life while wearing the latest trends. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. It’s just not for me.
