Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up— This chilling sequel begins only weeks after its predecessor The Murder Complex (HarperCollins, 2014) ended, providing alternating perspectives of its complex characters. Zephyr is struggling with the knowledge that Meadow holds the key to the Murder Complex's end, while Meadow will stop at nothing to rescue what's left of her family. Cummings has crafted an action-packed thriller that will appeal to fans of Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games and Veronica Roth's Divergent.

THE DEATH CODE was a fantastic sequel that kept me invested and on my toes the entire book. I LOVED this sequel as it takes us beyond the barrier and into the unknown. There was a lot going on in this novel, lots of secrets, trust issues, loyalty uncertainties, shocking reveals and revelations that were utterly heart wrenching and epically thrilling! I just couldn't get enough of it all, and then when it was over, I was SCREAMING for book three!!

Cummings really steps up her game in this sequel. Everything is more intense, more thrilling, more heart wrenching, and more shocking then the first time around. And I loved that about this book! Not many second installments that I've read surpassed its predecessor, but THE DEATH CODE did and some!!

I listened to book one and two on audio, and the narrator Caitlin Davies, one of my all time favorites narrators really gives this sequel it's well deserved voice. And Josh Hurley, the other narrator in THE DEATH CODE is almost as good as Davies, but not quite on her level just yet. But nevertheless, they make a great team together and bring this dark world to life, with just the right voice and superb acting to have the reader falling in love with book two all over again.

One downside to this book is my strong dislike for the main character Zephyr! And when you hate the main character, it makes it hard to get immersed into the story and really enjoy it. But luckily their was two main characters with dual POV's. And I LOVED Meadow to death, so it was easy to fall into the story regardless of my hate for Zephyr!

Like in book one, Zephyr drove me insane for numerous reasons, but I was happy that Cummings did mange to make him a tad less annoying, though not by much!

The world was still confusing for me, and Willow was completely unrealistic. The writing just didn't pull me in and I found myself skimming through. I'm sure some will love this story, it just wasn't for me.

I really enjoyed this book, I had no idea what would come for this book, what would happen, or who would die. I didn't even read the synopsis, I just knew I had to have it since The Murder Complex was sooo good!

As you might know from The Murder Complex, Meadow is the key to ending TMC, her psycho mother made sure her precious invention would live. Zephyr is known as Patient Zero because he is, or was, a patient of The Murder Complex, the first patient actually. He's stronger than the rest. That's why its no surprise he beat the system. He triggered the reverse, one thing to check off the list. This is still told in Meadow and Zephyr's POV, all chapters are super short and this is sooo fast paced, I LOVE IT!

I feared the worst for this book, because the name didn't sound good.. The Death Code.. It reminded me a lot of The Maze Runner, except a more brutal version. Much. More. Brutal.
"I leap, and in my head, I tell myself I'm fighting a Leech. It's all a blur, the twist of body against body, punches to the jaw, the throat. The crack of bones and the burst of blood. The slice of my blade against my enemy's desperate, sweating skin."

Something I found heartwarming was when they finally found Peri, and she reunites with her Father. The man who pushed Meadow in the ocean with weights tied to her feet and told her to swim up. The man who stabbed her in the shoulder while in the water and told her to keep swimming. The man who made her steal a book from the library and find her own way home safely. He held Peri in his arms like an infant and cried a bloody tear, a literal bloody tear, with a smile. His baby girl is safe and he couldn't be happier.

This book picks up like three weeks after the end of the first book. Zephyr is out searching for Lark, Meadow's mother, so he can kill her and destroy the Initiative. Meadow is locked up by the Initiative being tortured for information on her mother and the resistance. After the resistance finds a successful way to get Meadow to cooperate with them, they release her to lure her mother out of hiding. She manages to accomplish that and then Zephyr comes along and kills Lark. Then all the Patients attack the Initiative and in the chaos Zephyr, Sketch, and Meadow all escape the Shallows. Now they're setting off on Meadow's mission to find and rescue her family.

I wanted to like this book. I really did. I liked the first one. But I can't remember why. I can't remember really anything about the first one. I feel like I could have liked this one better if I could remember anything. But I just couldn't get into this book. It felt like a chore to finish this book. I kept hoping it would get better.

I did not like Meadow. I found her to be incredibly unlikable throughout the whole book. She doesn't care about anyone around her or the fact that they were sacrificing everything to help her find her family. She doesn't act grateful at all. There was not one single point in this book where I can remember feeling anything for her at all. Or even thinking anything nice.

Zephyr, I just felt bad for him. He follows Meadow around like a lost puppy, waiting for her to give him a second glance. And he acts like he’s only there because he has to be, not because he wants to help the girl he supposedly loves to find her missing family.

Sketch, I just found her to be annoying. And her and Zephyr’s constant childish arguments.
