The sequel—and conclusion—to Sarah Crossan's Breathe. Three teen outlaws must survive on their own in a world without air, exiled outside the glass dome that protects what's left of human civilization. Gripping action, provocative ideas, and shocking revelations in a dystopian novel that fans of Patrick Ness and Veronica Roth will devour.
Bea, Alina, and Quinn are on the run. They started a rebellion and were thrown out of the pod, the only place where there's enough oxygen to breathe. Bea has lost her family. Alina has lost her home. And Quinn has lost his privileged life. Can they survive in the perilous Outlands? Can they finish the revolution they began? Especially when a young operative from the pod's Special Forces is sent after them. Their only chance is to stand together, even when terrible circumstances force them apart. When the future of human society is in danger, these four teens must decide where their allegiances lie. Sarah Crossan has created a dangerous, and shattered society in this wrenching, thought-provoking, and unforgettable post-apocalyptic novel.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Plus, the inital premise with the dome people vs the people outside the dome, still reminds me of Pure, so yeah, that was really great, and I still love all the differences between the 2, because they're by different authors, they're different books!
In this book, the world expanded, because we got a 4th POV, that of Ronan, who had a brief appearance in Breathe, so yeah, it was nice to be able to be in his thoughts, because he had a much bigger role to play in this book, which is probably why he got the POV.
So Ronan was really interesting, and I felt bad for him-he works for the special forces-but now he feels disillusioned after what happened to Breathe, and wants to quit, but can't because no one quits. But Quinn's dad offers him a way out-find Quinn, and you'll be free of your job. So of course Ronan does it. Oh, and the fact that Ronan is the son of the previous minster of the dome? Just icing on the cake.
So all 3 of the original main characters are pretty split up, or if they're together, they got split up at some point, they didn't have as much time together as they did in Breathe, which I liked, they got to play their strengths and weaknesses there without anyone seeing.
Yeah, this was a really good book, and I enjoyed the ending, it was really good!
