Book Synopsis(via Goodreads):
In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake. Cassia's quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander - who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia's heart - change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.
This insomniac's opinion:
This book was simply not as enjoyable as the first book in this series. I also found myself rather annoyed with Cassia and not endeared to her at all in this novel. I really didn't want to finish the last half as I was rather bored, but I pushed through.
Worth staying up all night to read?
No, I don't think so.
Rating: I am wavering between 2.5 and 3 stars, but I'll go with 3.
