The long-awaited new novel in theNew York Timesbest-selling Darkest Minds series, now a major motion picture.
Five years after the destruction of the so-called rehabilitation camps that imprisoned her and countless other Psi kids, seventeen-year-old Suzume "Zu" Kimura has assumed the role of spokesperson for the interim government, fighting for the rights of Psi kids against a growing tide of misinformation and prejudice. But when she is accused of committing a horrifying act, she is forced to go on the run once more in order to stay alive.
Determined to clear her name, Zu finds herself in an uncomfortable alliance with Roman and Priyanka, two mysterious Psi who could either help her prove her innocence or betray her before she gets the chance. But as they travel in search of safety and answers, and Zu grows closer to the people she knows she shouldn't trust, they uncover even darker things roiling beneath the veneer of the country's recovery. With her future-and the future of all Psi-on the line, Zu must use her powerful voice to fight back against forces that seek to drive the Psi into the shadows and save the friends who were once her protectors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Combination Of Old And New I've been looking forward to getting back into THE DARKEST MINDS series ever since I heard there would be another book! Zu was one of my favorite characters in the original trilogy, and she turned out to be just as awesome, and way tougher! The size of the book blew my mind, and I worried that there would be too much going on. Nope! The story of Zu's journey with friends both old and new was exactly the length it needed to be. She's a fantastic, maturing combination of the little girl from five years ago, and a strong young woman coming into her own. The other side characters were equally as fun and complex. Roman was a good, if broody, fellow, and while it took me a little while to warm up to Priyanka, she soon became another favorite. It was just as fun to reunite with old characters and have the story shift until it technically revolved around them. The one complaint I have was with Ruby's actions. I understood them at the end, but there were some points where I was raging at her a little bit. The action was explosive throughout, and the ending left a few unanswered questions... which will hopefully lead to more books? Because of my few nitpicks, I can't call this a perfect novel, but I can say that it lives up to its hype and will have both old and new fans craving for more. A blast from start to finish!
