This was DARK. One of the darkest YA if not just in general I've read in a long time. Really takes its time showing the horrors of war and police occupation. This is becoming one of my all time favorite series. It really dives deep into the complexities of the choices that we make.

Just like the first, it was a little long for my taste. It's also still bio-essentialist and I don't think it's going to address that. There are things (losses) I wished it lingered on more but I understand that during wartime you don't always get time to process your feelings.

"So, who are you then, Todd Hewitt?" he says. "What makes you so special?
Now that, I think, is a very good asking.

Oh, what a turn. Just enough predictability so nothing seemed too far-fetched, but a healthy amount of mystery and twist elements. The second book of the Chaos Walking trilogy takes a very dark road in an already bleak universe. Thankfully, I checked out both books two and three at the same time so as soon as I finish this review, I'll be moving on to the next.

Todd Hewitt, how are you going to fix this?
