” A breathless, unsettling read.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
This book was ALMOST as good as the first. Again, the subject matter is extremely controversial and I am refreshed to see that the book that is marketed to young adults is so deep.
In this book the journey of the three unwinds from the first book is continued. Connor has taken over the dead airfield that is a makeshift camp for the AWOLS. There is trouble on all fronts. Since the order was decreed that now 17 year olds are safe from unwinding there is more demand for body parts.
The black market is booming. Add to that the consideration that adults who are suicidal can voluntarily be unwound and the consideration that criminals as well should be unwound takes the level of evil and depravity to a new low. Worst of all they have created a whole human being solely on the parts of unwinds. A Frankenstein, if you will.
