Book two in the hit series that's soon to be a major motion picture!
Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children's League call Ruby "Leader", but she knows what she really is: a monster.

When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children's League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America's children-and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts-has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future-and who now wouldn't recognize her.

As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam-and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart-she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This series is putting me through the emotional wringer. I had forgotten that this book takes a while to get into, as there is an abrupt change of scenery and characters to open the book. I love the addition of the new characters, Vida and Jude; they really round out the group nicely. This book is very, very dark and poor Ruby is just being torn apart from the inside. The scenes between her and Liam were truly heartbreaking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful!!! Why are the endings all so emotional, I absolutely love the new characters introduced in this sequel, at first I wasn't really sure, but they definitely grew on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sequel! Definitely a lot more action in this story (I wasn't expecting Ruby to take the turn that she did) and I felt the plot was more streamlined. The new characters were great, we finally got to meet some of the Reds, and the sense of danger was a lot stronger. As grateful as I was to see old, beloved characters again, I have to admit that Ruby's actions made me a little crazy. She's made mistakes in the past, but there were some times when I thought she needed a smack upside the head, especially in regards to Liam, who was still, deep down, as heartbreakingly sweet as always. The end was a bit of a cliffhanger, but a good one for a change, so I look forward to seeing how it all wraps up!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SO Much Better Than the First Book! *Actual Rating: 3.5/5* Wow. This book was so much better than The Darkest Minds! I was originally going to give this book a 3/5 star rating, but the ending bumped it up a whole half star! It was so sad, but then something amazing happened! I'm so excited for the last book! I think I enjoyed this book more since the storyline was more interesting than the first book's. I felt way more engaged in the story! The characters fell really flat for me in the first book, but in this book, I feel like the characters grew on me a bit more. Although I only really love a couple of the characters in this book, I feel like all the characters are really crucial to the story, and they added a lot! There were quite a few times in this book where I was completely surprised by what happened. Most of what happened was super different from what I expected (meaning it wasn't very predictable) which I really enjoyed! I'm going to read the novella (Sparks Rise) right after this, since I read the first novella (In Time) after the first book, and it added a lot to the story! It also answered many of the questions Book 1 left me with, so hopefully the second novella is just as great as the first one! I think that if you didn't enjoy the first book, read this one, since it's way better!
