Alenna is returning to the UNA after being on Alpha Island. When they land at the UNA, Alenna, Liam and Gaudia are incorporated into rebel groups. They are surprised to find their friend David is in charge of the rebel groups, because they thought he had died on the Island, which leads them to believe that their information about the rebellion isn’t complete. Alenna and her friends have to evade evil government systems to get to the information they need to overcome the powerful UNA.
This book was such a disappointment. I have loved the other two books in the series because it had the perfect amount of action and character development. This book was all action and zero character growth. The ending was abrupt, predictable and read like an outline. It was nice to know what happened to the characters, but I had to force myself to finish reading.
