Nothing is ever quite as good as when you step into a new world for the first time. Still, the second book in this dystopian trilogy does not disappoint. Former agent Nick Cooper is relishing in the better world he created for his family through his actions in the previous book. That is until he realizes he‘s been played and now America is on the brink of civil war, except this time with technology instead of bayonets. (Continued below)

RvnclawWhovian At the center of it all is a scientist who‘s discovery has the potential to alter life as they know it forever. Dr Couzen may hold the key to bringing peace to a rioting America. With multiple parties with different interests and intents after him, he goes on the run while America burns. Can Nick Cooper find him in time? Just as heart pounding as the first, I can‘t wait to see how it ends in the third (edited) 9mo

Another Saturday night, another red ? Relaxing and reading with the fiancée while he watches college basketball. I hope everyone else is having a great weekend so far! #acciowine

On of the problems with working for a bookseller is seeing books I want to buy on a daily basis and ordering them even though I really don't need anymore books right now.... But #bookmail soon! (Also, employee discount).
