Week 26 Review: Containment

From Goodreads:
Kenzie and her friends find themselves on the run and up against another alien invasion headed towards Earth.

They may have escaped Sanctuary, but Kenzie and her friends are far from safe. 

Ex-Omnistellar prison guard Kenzie and her superpowered friends barely made it off Sanctuary alive. Now they're stuck in a stolen alien ship with nowhere to go and no one to help them. Kenzie is desperate for a plan, but she doesn't know who to trust anymore. Everyone has their own dark secrets: Omnistellar, her parents, even Cage. Worse still, she's haunted by memories of the aliens who nearly tore her to shreds—and forced her to accidentally kill one of the Sanctuary prisoners, Matt.

When Kenzie intercepts a radio communication suggesting that more aliens are on their way, she knows there's only one choice: They must destroy the ship before the aliens follow the signal straight to them. Because if the monstrous creatures who attacked Sanctuary reach Earth, then it's game over for humanity.

What Kenzie doesn't know is that the aliens aren't the only ones on the hunt. Omnistellar has put a bounty on Kenzie's head—and the question is whether the aliens or Omnistellar get to her first.  

My Review:
Man, this book was a fantastic sequel! I totally didn't know where it was going to go-both in the story line, and where the characters physically where. I enjoyed spending more time with these characters-they face a lot of threats again in this book and they grow as human beings!

Like the previous book, there's a ton of action in this book. It's not all our gang vs. aliens, the bounty on Kenzie's head was another threat, as well as Omnistellar as a company. But it brought in a interesting cast of characters of whom I want to get to know better since they seem pretty interesting!

There's a good number of twists and developments in this book. Some good, some bad. Like the plan that Omnistellar has. That one, oh, man, I couldn't believe their audacity! It's not surprising, given their position and their lack of understanding of the threat. But come on! We know, and it was like, no no no, they can't do that!

The ending of this book isn't quite as positive as the last one, since they're in a more uncertain position then they were at the end of Sanctuary. And I'm itching to find out what's going to be happening next, I know it's going to be very exciting!

Loved reading this book, and I can't wait for the final book!
