This is the second book in the Sinners series. If you haven’t read Branded, this review will spoil you.
Goodread’s synopsis : It’s been three months since the revolt against the Commander’s fifty-year-old regime failed.
Under a new ruler, things were supposed to change. Get better.
But can anyone really be trusted?
Lexi and Cole soon find out, as life takes an unexpected turn for the worse.
In this ever-changing world, you must hunt or be hunted.
Lives will be lost.
Dreams will be crushed.
Fears will be realized.
Secrets will be exposed.
When Cole is once again faced with losing Lexi at the hands of a monster, one encounter will change everything.
Lexi and Cole are trying to stay hidden from Wilson’s army. They are meeting with Sutton, Bruno and Grace. Sutton has a plan to take down the hole. It’s their only opportunity. But Sutton is abducted by Wilson’s men. They then decide to go back in the hole, to save Sutton and carry on his mission.
I had a really hard time remembering who was who between Sutton and Wilson. I read Branded more than a year ago. So a little “reminder” would have been great. Because of it I didn’t enjoy the first chapters as much as I would have liked to. Because I was lost.
Otherwise, I really enjoyed this book. It’s fast paced, action packed and full of plot twists I didn’t see coming.
That’s the thing about emotions. You can’t control them. The only thing you can do is hope you’ll find a way to somehow keep your head above water.
– Lexi is now a warrior. She is strong minded, and wants to protect Cole (and Zeus) no matter what.
– Cole will do everything for Lexi. He loves her so much. But he is keeping a really dark secret from her. it puts tension between them.
– Crazy Bill, ah Bill. I love this character, he is really interesting. He is so loyal and funny ! He truly cares for Lexi and her quest.
– Grace is so loveable. She is both fragile and strong in her way.
Overall I really enjoyed this book. I couldn’t put it down because I wanted to know how this would end. And the final plot twist is kind of amazing.
