In this riveting sequel, Davy Hamilton attempts to cross the U.S. border into Mexico with her three companions: Sean, Gil, and Sabine. Misfortune strikes, however, and Davy is separated from the rest of her group. Davy soon finds herself in the middle of a resistance cell, an Underground Railroad–like group of HTS carriers who help other carriers with the kill gene escape safely to refuges in Mexico. This particular resistance is led by a boy named Caden, a fierce protector and a loyal friend. Attraction simmers between them, and Davy is forced to make a decision. Will Davy choose Caden and help him with his mission, or will she leave in search of her friends, Gil and Sabine, and her former flame, Sean?
I enjoyed this novel immensely! It raises valid questions about the future of our society and the aftereffects of discrimination and violence. Davy falls in love with the boy who is the perfect “yin” to her “yang,” and she is able to come to terms with her situation and be happy. The characters are relatable and the setting is rife with possibilities. The author does an incredible job of creating a highly imaginable dystopia. Utterly enthralling!
