Never Fade: Contest and Review


About the book (from the publisher)
The gripping and highly anticipated second installment in a dark YA trilogy about teens with dangerous powers on the run from the government.


Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children's League call Ruby "Leader", but she knows what she really is: a monster.

When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children's League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America's children-and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts-has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future-and who now wouldn't recognize her.

As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam-and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart-she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?
My Thoughts: This is one of the most intense books I've read this year. I devoured this book filled with horrifying ideas, events, and possibilities. It was heartbreaking, sweet, and at times hopeful. 

I don't want to say too much and spoil anything for other readers. So I'll just say that the sequel was amazing and here's a few reasons why: Ruby's so strong and determined to make things right. I love her strength and her ability to make the hardest choices ever. I loved seeing old friends and meeting new ones. I loved the snark between Vida and everyone else. Vida's soft inside, but she fights to hide it, creating a prickly exterior that adds some humor relief. The cliff-hanger ending leaves me anxiously waiting to see how it all wraps up in the final book.

Nice review! Even despite all the stellar reviews this has gotten I'm still kind of anxious it won't live up to my expectations so reassurance is always nice :D

By the way, you should mention if the giveaway is international or US/Canada only. :)
