Summary from Goodreads:

Life. Possibility. Choice.
All taken from Adelice by the Guild—until she took them back.

But amid the splendid ruins of Earth, Adelice discovers how dangerous freedom can be. Hunted by soulless Remnants sent by Cormac Patton and the Guild, Adelice finds a world that’s far from deserted. Although allies are easy to find on Earth, knowing who to trust isn’t. Because everyone has secrets, especially those Adelice loves most. Secrets they would kill to protect. Secrets that will redefine each of them. Torn between two brothers and two worlds, Adelice must choose what to fight for.


  • I remember enjoying the first book but this book quickly evolved into a hot mess. There’s a bit more ‘explanation’ of the world but it really doesn’t make sense. It’s the start of a good idea…but that’s it. Not really developed.
  • The love triangle got worse…if that’s possible. There’s absolutely no chemistry with anyone. It also seems like Adelice is willing to make out with anyone. She should really be worried about other things.
  • I was pretty bored with the whole story. It was disappointing because the first book had a lot of potential.

The bottom line? I found it to be boring and a tad confusing.
