This is fast-paced, action-packed, and has a unique concept. I think this one would really appeal to reluctant readers.
While I enjoyed the story, something about it is not particularly memorable, nor would I read it again. That is why this gets 4 stars from me. I really enjoyed it, but I don’t absolutely love it, nor do I want to join the characters in their world. Instead, I was happy to watch them on their journey, but I just didn’t invest much of myself in it.

I actually like most of this book better than I did book one. It was more exciting, even though I was upset for most of the book about some of the choices. There are a few things that seemed extreme and unnecessary with the ending, but overall, they were acceptable.
SPOILERS. YOU WERE WARNED.
I wanted to give this 2 stars, based on my internal feelings, but I have upped it to a 3 out of fairness, since some of my reasons for disliking it are purely emotional and have nothing to do with the actual writing or storyline–though I confess the storyline didn’t really pull me in.
Now for my actual review:
No, no, no. I’m not buying this. I love Nick, but this isn’t the girl he should be with. I was so uninterested in this that I almost couldn’t finish it. This new girl just appears out of nowhere, and I wasn’t having any of it.
We already know who Nick should be with, people. Let’s stop pretending that anything else will be acceptable. It just won’t.
I tried to give the E girl (Eliza? Emma? —I was so uninterested in her that I can’t even remember her name) a chance, but she just doesn’t hold a candle to A. She’s like the honorable mention ribbon you get in the 3rd grade science fair, because everyone just has to be a “winner.”
In my mind, he breaks up E girl and returns to the girl he should be with (after she finally pulls her head out of the sand and gets a freaking clue).
So I spent most of this story in denial, rewriting it in my mind the way I feel it should be. That obviously impaired my ability to enjoy this particular book. Sorry peeps. I love Nick, but I just couldn’t. I typically try to accept the results of most love triangles, but this one just continues to make no sense to me.
