Mia and her friend flee to Mexico for freedom, but before the first chapter ends, Andrew and Carter are apprehended by the local authorities and Mia is on her own. In the first book, Andrew and Carter help Mia escape, and this time they need her help. The adventure that unfolds is fast paced, thrilling and unpredictable. As a new blogger, I still struggle with writing a spoiler-free review. Explaining what I like about a book without saying what happens in the book is a challenge. What I can say is that I found the story to be original, well written and very fun to read.

The Collection has action, drama, romance, suspense and authentic characters living in a dystopian world. The villain, Grant Marsden, is extremely complex and entertaining and Mia, Andrew and Carter grow as they realize the status quo is corrupt and risk it all for a better life. They have genuine fears, needs and doubts while discovering inner strengths, loyalties and desires. This book was very much like an action movie; fast paced, unpredictable and exciting.

There is wonderful social commentary on government, oppression, perfection and how the grass is always greener, no matter the environment. I have read a few “women are commodities in the future” books (Wither is another good one). Critics doubt that strong independent women in this modern age could become submissive property in a future world. I am of the belief that if society hit a “reset button,” anything is possible, even if its not probable. I enjoy a good story; A Handmaiden’s Tale, The Hunger Games, Maze Runner and (especially) Brave New World are excellent examples of a future world that is equal parts far-fetched and plausible.

I very much look forward to the final installment of this trilogy.

The Registry is the second book in Shannon Stoker's Collection trilogy. I read the first book and really enjoyed it,and was looking forward to reading this book. For me, the second book did not disappoint.

Warning: Spoilers may follow.

The book follows Mia, Andrew, and Carter after their escape from America into Mexico. Almost immediately Andrew and Carter are captured by the local militia, while Mia hides and is eventually rescued by Riley, a government agent for Ireland. I really liked Riley. She was fun! While Andrew and Carter are being brainwashed by the militia, Riley begins to train Mia to be able to overtake the militia and get the boys back. Riley offers to help Mia because they have a common goal. Riley has reason to believe that her husband Nathan is also being held by the militia. I won't get into all the details, but Mia is able to save Andrew and Carter and they are once again on the run. They are on the way to Guatemala to an American refugee safe haven. Once they reach this safe haven, known as Affinity, they learn the true nature of this safe haven. They are a group of rebels working to take down the Registry.

We get to meet a lot of new characters in this book. There's Sarah, also known as S. She was the person who initially reached out to Mia over the internet and told her how to find her way to Affinity. There is Zack, the new leader of Affinity. I am unsure on how I feel about him. I didn't like or dislike him. Then there is Rex. I really don't trust him, but there is a third book. Maybe he can change.

I am really looking forward to the third book. There are a lot of unanswered questions.

Will Carter betray Mia? Has Rex truly changed? Will the Registry be brought down? Will Riley find Nathan? (I hope so! I love happy cheesy endings.)

Even though some parts of the book were a little far fetched, I really enjoyed the book. I loved the concept and it was very well written. Very enjoyable read.

Mia has escaped the Registry and America but she hasn't escaped the danger. Her friends Andrew and Carter make it to Mexico but they boys are taken by a violent militia The Collection and Mia is the only one who can save them. Andrew and Carter are tortured and brain washed to forget what they know and to become killers. Mia will have to face not only danger from the Collection but the henchman her ex fiance has sent after her. She also has to help the boys gain back heir loss memories. The journey just may take her right back to where she has run from the auction block and America.

I liked the first book in this series but I believe I liked this one better. Mia in the first was spoiled, seemed weak and even while she put a brave front up at times she would just grate on your nerves. In this book she grows up so much. She has the chance to be safe but she refuses to do that in order to save the ones she cares about. She shows such an improvenment in her attitude you can't help but like her in this one. All places seem to have some kind of danger in this series. In Mexico it is from militia and in America it is a danger really to be a woman. You have to do what men say and go to the highest bidder. I hated Grant in the first book but I will say a few times I actually felt sorry for him in this one. You get to see what shaped him into who he is today. However you also still see the ruthless side of him in this one and everything he will do to get what he wants. This book has more adventures, action and danger and is a great sequel. I look forward to seeing the end of Mia's journey and what all she will change because I believe she is possible now of doing many things.
