Review of The Collection - Enjoyable and Easy Read,
This review is from: The Collection: A Registry Novel (Paperback)
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.
