Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken


Wow. Wow. Wow, wow, wowza. That was one of the best second book in a series I have ever read.

Ruby has spent the last few months fully entrenched in the Children's League. She's a weapon, used to discover the secrets of League's enemies by using her powers to see into their minds. She hates it; hates the life she chose to live, hates the decisions she made--though she has no doubt they were the right ones. She just hopes that Chubs and Zu and Liam are safe.

But when she is sent on a secret mission, a mission that could change the world they live in, it leads her right back to Liam, the one she was trying to stay away from. Now she battles the promise she made to serve the League, and finding Liam and bringing him to safety. Even if it means losing everything again.

I liked this one even more than the first one. Which is saying something, because I fucking adore The Darkest Minds. I bought this book the day it came out last year and just never read it. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for Sci-Fi, or I was just afraid of how the first one ended. Whatever the reason, I feel like an idiot because I don't think I've ever done something so stupid in my entire life! This book was magnificent. Not only was it everything you would want in a middle book, setting up the conclusion perfectly, but it was everything you would want in a book period. Strong characters, incredible action, hilarity, plot twists and the perfect amount of romance.

Ruby is a flawless character. I wish I could be inside Alexandra Bracken's mind and figure out how the hell she came up with such an incredibly intricate, interesting character. She fiercely protective of the ones she loves, full of self-doubt and fear, and real as fuck. She is so freakin' awesome.

But what surprised me most about this book was how perfectly composed it was. Every single scene had a purpose, intricate to the story as a whole. I had to force myself to put it down for basic things like sleep and school, but it was so difficult. The book was simply genius.

All I know is that until my copy of In the Afterlight arrives, I'm going to be hyperventilating with anticipation.
