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.

i don't know why i thought the second one would be any better than the first. i just have absolutely no interest in any of the characters.
