There's nothing to suggest this book is at all inferior to the first book; the author's writing is still marvelous and the story is progressing well. I think the plot is well thought out and executed. In fact, it's so rapid-fire and full of action that I finished this 300+ page book very quickly. I think it was a total of 2 hours, so this one goes by lightening fast without skimping on plot and detail. We see a greater development of the characters, their relationships, and the overall plot to save clones and overthrow President Stone and her regime. It's a great addition! And, unlike book 1, the cliffhanger here feels like a good point to end so another arc can begin instead of cutting off right in the middle of a very important "will they live or die?" scene.
I really have nothing negative to say to be perfectly honest; there's nothing I can legitimately fault. The book is a bit straightforward and simple, so I wouldn't put this in the same group with some other novels that go above and beyond to have complexities and details dripping off the pages, but this doesn't take away from one's ability to enjoy the story and be absorbed into the characters and their plights. I also like how the romance is starting to heat up; this time around, it's more focused from the make protagonist than the female, which is a nice change. It's interesting to watch Reece come to accept and revel his feelings for Wren while Wren is so preoccupied that she can only spare a little thought for herself and even entertain the idea that a human (i.e. not a clone) could love her or want her, though I in no way think this means Wren isn't any less feeling or reciprocating, it's more like... the idea of love is so distant and unfamilar and she's so worried about staying alive and helping others and hoping Reece makes it back alive that she can't find a spare moment to sit and think about love and romance.
My only qualm would perhaps be Wren's insistence that she and Reece and the resistance constantly take all these risks to save everyone even when the odds are stacked against them and her desire to save everyone comes at the risk of many other lives. She's not as pragmatic as I'd like her to be, she isn't able to reconcile her heart and head and accept that not everyone can be saved, but I think the point of her character is for her to be more willing to die trying to save everyone than to live with survivor's guilt and know she hadn't even made an effort on their behalf. So in this, I deal out my forgiveness. I don't peg it as a flaw of the writing or character development so much as it is something I personally was "ehhh" about.
Overall, this was a good installment. It doesn't really suffer from middle book syndrome since a lot is accomplished. I loved it and will be purchasing book #3 as soon as I finish writing this review.
