Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mostly filler but at least fast paced The Good Stuff Lots of twists and turns Liked Jazmine, would have liked her to be more of a character, but than again she is an adult, and well adults aren't really the point of the story Darkly funny Great cover Eventhough book frustrated me, I will still probably read the third book in the series Good for reluctant readers The Not So Good Stuff Story felt a lot like filler in between a 1st and 2nd book Didn't like the change in Marco - I get it, but I don't have to like it. I'm a mom, I just don't want to believe teens could act like that Didn't like or believe that Preeti would abandon her sister the way she did The chicken part ewwww The book felt like filler. I have noticed this in quite a few of the trilogies in the YA market. Trilogies sell I guess, but I find in most cases, the 2nd book in a trilogy is mostly filler. Than again who am I to judge, as you can tell, I am not a writer Character development was all over the place and quite frankly I wanted to slap each and every character upside the head for being so bloody selfish and stupid Favorite Quotes/Passages "Lexi nearly dropped her laptop from the burst of laughter that shook her. Just wear whatever they hand you? Like that won't cause a riot?" "The way I see it, you can look at this as a giant suckfest of death or you can decide to make the best things and live. Why not stay positive?" "But the thought of a fish, even a small fish - was tantalizing. He'd seen A Fish Called Wanda. He knew you could eat the little suckers." 3 Dewey's Both of these books were loaned to me by the lovely Leslie who I work with at Chapters - yup we are all book addicts - it be a job requirement

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now this is what I'm talking about! Before I go into detail I will say this: if you liked the first book, or have some curiosity as to what happens next, MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS ONE TOO! I could not put this book down! This second book does what the first book, No Safety in Numbers, was leading up to: Lord of the Flies. When I read the first book, I kept asking when it would shadow Lord of the Flies, and this book does it right here. Much more suspenseful than the first book and double the length! I was just curious after reading the first book, but now I'm full on hooked! Each character is lovable for their own reasons, but my favourite are Shay and Ryan. They just seem to compliment each other in a way that shines past the other two characters. I know I compare this book (and its predecessor) to Lord of the Flies a lot, but one simply cannot avoid that comparison. This is supposed to act like a modern-day Lord of the Flies. And this book even has intertextualities and alludes to significant objects from Lord of the Flies such as the iconic pig's head on a stick. One thing that I was not very impressed on was the narration. At times, it lacked it when it was really needed. In some of the dialogues, a quote would just be inserted and Lorentz would not narrate as to whose voice that was. It took some reading back and visualizing the conversation in my head to figure out the speaker. Similar thing would happen on the narration of the events going around. I guess Lorentz figured readers would be able to assume what happened, but she really needed to add those narrations to make it crystal clear. This puzzles me, as Lorentz does have a Masters Degree in Creative Writing. How could she miss such narrations? The suspense and tension really makes up for it's minor faults. I knew while reading this book that this wouldn't be the end, and now I can't wait for the third book!

In this thrilling sequel to "No Safety in Numbers, " teens Marco, Shay, Ryan, and Lexi form new allies in the quarantined mall. As the bodies pile up, the disease mutates, the Senator's authority is questioned, and it becomes clear there's no one to trust.

Read from the Book

The mall is under new management“No touching,” a voice commanded. “And put on your mask.”“Say what?” Jazmine barked. “If I want to hug a person, I’m hugging her.”“New rules.” The voice came closer. Shay turned her head and saw a security guard, stun baton gripped in both hands across his chest like a shield.Jazmine gave Shay a look like she would kill this man before she’d stop hugging people, but then she let go of Shay, replaced her mask, and shuffled off the gurney. “I’ll check on you later,” she said, squeezing Shay’s shoulder, then walked away.Shay nearly screamed for Jazmine to come back, but the security guard with his black stick shut her up. He looked both nervous and cocky, and Shay did not like that combination. Would he attack her? No, he was here to protect her. Right? Cold sweat broke out over her body. She was alone with this guy who looked ready to beat the crap out of anyone and everyone.Shay did not trust these strangers. She did not feel safe.OTHER BOOKS YOU MAY ENJOYThe 5th Wave Rick YanceyBlack Mirror Nancy WerlinChampion Marie LuIf I Stay Gayle FormanIncarceron Catherine FisherThe Killer’s Cousin Nancy WerlinLegend Marie LuNo Dawn Without Darkness Dayna LorentzNo Safety in Numbers Dayna LorentzThe Outsiders S.
