Orion has survived the tunnels of Outpost Five, filled with mutant creatures and dangers around every bend. She has traversed the cordons, exposed to the radiation of the flash curtain and hunted by forces that want her stopped, dead or alive. Now, with Dram by her side, she has made it to the safety of the mountain provinces, where free Conjurors live and practice their craft of manipulating matter.
But Orion's story is far from over.
With the effects of the flashfall spreading and the might of the protected city of Alara looming, Orion must travel into the hands of her enemies once again. Heart-pounding action and adventure await in this sequel to Flashfall.

(I received this book free in exchange for my honest review)
My Rating: 4 stars
My Recommendation: High
Going into this book I was excited and worried about how this will end. I must say that, though I was sure that this book would end with nothing won, everything somehow, worked. And I have to say, I liked the way it was played out. It was a bare bones ending and I love how it kept me guessing and on edge.
Lets talk about the writing, this book, as well as the first, was so well written that I was transported into the depressing dystopian world were hope was short and trying to find the will to fight was getting harder and harder as the days went on. I could feel the crushing desperation, and it really got to me at some points. These are the books I love, to get you so involved that you feel like you're not just reading the story, but you are apart of it. It's magical, and I can't stress enough how well this book is written.
Now I will say that this book, isn't as strong as the first. I did read them back to back, and I felt like some of that excitement taper off, but I think that might have to do with a tone shift and the, what-do-we-do-now vibe. Now don't get me wrong, this book is a must read, it has all the elements of the first and then some. The same outstanding world building, the kickass MC, the growing love, and the fierce will to live. Just be warmed that this book, is darker, deeper and heavy.
In all I love this series, it original, fresh, and it needs to be talked about! Take my high recommendation that you need to pick up this series, it will change the way you look at dystopian.
