Publisher's Summary

Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby “Leader", but she knows what she really is: a monster.

When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children’s League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America’s children - and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts - has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is saved in only one place: a flash drive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future - and who now wouldn’t recognize her.

As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam - and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart - she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?

Not what I expected.

I was attracted to the book after watching the movie. The book was depressing and darker than I expected. For that reason I don't see myself continuing the series.

The kids had a major growth spurt

I definitely felt how the trauma of the characters lives forced them to grow up very fast in this book. They've gone from innocent children to hardened adults. This book is just as action packed as the first, but much harsher, a little more hard-core, and violent than the first. I noticed the language got a lot fouler in this book compared to the first. Still, I couldn't put it down, and purchased the next book in the series immediately after finishing. I like the writing style, it is fast paced and full of action, it keeps you hooked in all the way through to the very last sentence. The narration is good in the sense that you can tell the characters apart, and she speaks clearly, with proper enunciation. If I have one complaint, it's a minor one, in this book and in the first, I found the accents to be a bit cartoony, but in my experience, accents are difficult, so I'm still impressed she gave it a shot, and committed to them throughout. Definitely one of my top 3 favorite series that I've listened to this year.

super

j’ai aimer audible parce que j’ai pu faire d’autre chose en même temps d’écouter mon livre. Cela m’a sauvé plus de temps car je veux finir ma série de livre plus vite pour commencer d’autre livre!
merci audible!

Amazing

I have been so drawn into this story. The performance by Amy McFadden is amazing, and I can't wait to dive into the next book.

Amazing narrator!

Amy McFadden just may be the best audiobook narrator I've listened to! She adds so much emotion to her voice that it had me sobbing by the end of this book.

Disappointed

I really enjoyed the narration I think it was done very well the book itself well I have to say it became a little confusing at the very end, not sure what direction they were heading. it was just messy at the end that's all I can say and a very blunt ending that took on little nomeaning. the build-up was so much of it then bang that was the end????
