Chicago is burning, a rebellion rises, but that’s the least of Carrie’s concerns. Patrolman Simmons is assigned new partners who threaten the security and secrecy of Carrie's clan. Tensions are high, lines are drawn, and Carrie feels a wedge growing between her and Greg.
Haunted by past mistakes and impending tragedies, Greg knows he should distance himself from Carrie. He knows he should let her love the patrolman who can save her and her siblings, especially with money and resources dwindling. But knowing and doing are different matters. He's busy hatching a plan to salvage things when his citizenship backfires, and he’s asked to do the unthinkable. In this stunning follow-up to Life, loved ones are lost, allegiances are tested, and old enemies plot revenge. At every turn, the citizens of Logan Pond must ask:
What price would you pay for the liberty of those you love?
This is the second book in the Citizens of Logan Pond series. I would highly recommend reading the first book, Life, before you delve into this book. The books are dependent on each other and you would be missing so much if you didn't read them in order. This is a dystopian book, set in the future of America.
I had a hard time with the main character, Greg, in the first book. I didn't like him very much. I have to admit that he grew on me a bit in this book but he still isn't my favorite. I am grateful for the gentle shift in his attitude though. It was much easier to find and attach myself to those redemptive qualities in this book.
This book brings all kinds of hardship and struggle to the characters of Logan Pond. The story line really picks up and tensions increase. It was like the first book was completely meant to introduce characters and set the stage for this book. I did enjoy this book more than the first and boy, did it leave off in a doozy of a way. Talk about a cliffhanger! I will be picking up the third book in this series for sure. It's on my review schedule for the first week of January and I'm looking forward to the climactic conclusion!
