Book Description: Jezebel James is on the run after her true abilities are discovered by the Legislature, and the only one who can protect her is Sol. In order to survive, Sol sends her into an underground hideout where she quickly discovers all that she thought was true in her dying world is false. Jez reunites with Rueben and his band of insurgents, and together they escape to Lake Town, only to find that the entire island is preparing to invade the City.
But Sol has been left behind and forced to join the ranks of the Faction, who are working against the Legislature from within. As Jez works with the insurgents and their plan to destroy the City, she learns that attacking the City might save thousands of lives, but it will destroy Sol, the man she knows she can’t live without.
My thoughts: This picked up right where Solstice left off. It took a bit for me to remember the details from the book and pick up on this one. (One of the hazards of reading a series right when it comes out.)
It didn't take me long to get right back into the dystopian world that Jane Redd has created. I remembered how much I liked the characters and the story. In this series, it has rained for 40 years and most of Earth is covered in water. There are a few places where there is land for the people to live. The government has control and represses the emotions of the people in order to remain in control.
The book is full of action, a little bit of romance, and a lot of strategizing. I love books where a few people rise up and make a difference. If you love dystopian, you should give this series a try. I would strongly suggest that you start with "Solstice" first.
The book contains violence.
