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.

challenging dark emotional tense

After I finished the first book in this series ngl I was so distraught and exhausted from what I'd read I had to have a break before I started this one. So needless to say the break definitely hyped up my expectations for the sequel, and I really enjoyed it! I'd say I preferred the first one to this one just because it was a little more fast paced, but apart from that this really had everything in it that I loved about the first one and more
Spoiler *cough cough* TODD AND VIOLA *cough cough*
. It was sooo good and I can't wait to read the third and final one :')
