Summary (Goodreads):

When Whit & Wisty were imprisoned by the wicked forces of the totalitarian regime known as the New Order, they were barely able to escape with their lives. Now part of a hidden community of teens like themselves, Whit and Wisty have established themselves as leaders of the Resistance, willing to sacrifice anything to save kids kidnapped and brutally imprisoned by the New Order.

But the One has other plans in store for them: He needs Wisty, for she is “The One Who Has the Gift.” While trying to figure out what that means, Whit and Wisty’s suspenseful adventures through Overworld and Shadowland lead to a jaw-dropping climax and conclusion: the highly-anticipated fulfillment of the heart-pounding opening prologue of book one… The Execution of the Allgoods.

 

My Review:

As you start the book, you are swept into the world of a fast paced story that in the end, you have trouble putting the book down. The story is interesting and well formed that you love it no matter what others might feel about it.

It’s interesting how James Patterson is always able to keep that ‘interesting’ factor alive that you never have to be told twice to buy the second book in the series. I really enjoyed reading this one as much as the first and i can’t wait to get my hands on the third and final book.

Patterson wrote this series for his son who was not interested in reading at all. I feel that this book should be given to all those who run from books. At the moment i am trying to get my brother to read this series because he runs from books of any kind. Here i am, loving books and he hates them.

In the first book i pictured Byron to be this fat kid, who bullied. You know that stereotypical image of a bully. But in this book when we see this confused, sensitive side to him i try to picture him in a more favourable way. By completely changing his appearance in my head.

Whit was rather annoying in this book with his whole crying for his dead girlfriend Celia. I wanted to smack him!

The book was short-ish and goes by super fast and you are left wanting to read more!
