Swipe Series: Sneak

Bookworm's Ranking - 4 Worms
 
Storyline - Logan is on his own. But the government is cracking down on the Markless like never before. Determined to get to Beacon to find his lost sister, he receives help form fellow Markless as he travels halfway across the country as well as learn of a God no one speaks of since the Total War. Erin is also on a mission. What did Logan find to go crazy like he did at his Pledge? As she digs deeper, she discovers something she never imagined possible. Will Logan find his sister? And, if he does, what then?

Author - Evan Angler

Publisher - Thomas Nelson

Age Group - 12 and up

Content - *May Contain Spoilers* Ready to sacrifice themselves at any moment to help others who were in danger. One crazy couple who want to hurt some Markless. Both the Markless and the Marked stereotype each other with names and generalized ideas but some of them start to see things differently.

Personal Opinion - Wow. Book one was good. Intriguing and exciting situations. Book two is better. I entered the story on page one and every page after that. I got to know the characters even better, they really came alive, and their struggles and mission was something I latched onto. Believable in ever sense, characters, the future world, the government, everything. The Christian elements that also came out of this dystopia was perfectly done. I especially like how it was all underground and there was a Underground-Railroad with Christian symbols to it. The only thing that disrupted the story for me was something with the ending. It wasn't the content but it seemed at the end to give little snippets of events after the main action was over which didn't flow nicely for me. Still, a totally enjoyable book. If I was excited after book 1, I'm psyched now and am eagerly waiting for book 3.

  7. Good review! I think the ending was more like a cliffhanger epilogue (so it couldn't be labeled as one). It showed the results of what happened, and then had the characters speak directly to the readers, saying, in essence, "This just got so big, where will we start?" and then answered its own question, prolonging our suspense for book 3. ;)
