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.

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.

Just as good as Darkest Minds

For a middle book, this one blows that "middle book syndrome" idea right out of the water. Wow! Every bit as action packed and drama driven as the first book, Alexandra Bracken has delivered a whopper of a sequel. The audio by Amy McFadden is superb. Every voice was distinct, every emotion appropriate. I am getting spoiled by all these voice actors and highly impatient with those who just narrate. This book is amazing. Just get it and listen to it - you're welcome.

Excellent, Great listen !!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Never Fade to be better than the print version?

Haven't seen the printed version...

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, would have been nice to sit and listen to entire book, but long enough and to many interuptions to do so.

Any additional comments?

This would be a great listen for children 10 and up. I did not realize that it was in the teen list till I looked. I liked the suspence and the anticipation book by book. Kept you thinking and kept it pretty much real. I could imagine this might or could actually happen.

good but...

dont get me wrong. the voice actor does a great job especially with vidas voice but I feel like it would have been a better idea to cast someone who's speaking for someone who's supposed to be from Virginia with an actor who doesnt have such a strong Michigan accent. probably just me but I find it to be super annoying. other than that fantastic book. very exciting and not too too much gushy teen romance.
