My Thoughts and Review:
I have been waiting for this sequel since I finished Flight. I couldn't wait to sink into it and find out what happened next.
Can I tell you how excited I am about this series? It really is different and fun and just something that I needed to break up the sameness that sometimes happens in the YA genre.
Ivy did not disappoint with this sequel, not at all. We once again get lots of Levi. And while he can sometimes he cocky and a little alpha male, I love him for it. There is just something about him that I can't help but like. He is so sweet and rotten at the same time. He can be controlling and bossy yet he adores Allie and would do anything for her. Yeah, he made some big mistakes in Flight but again, I still loved him.
I would like to say he is perfect in this one but he isn't, not even close. But what we do see from him, his tender side, the love he has for Allie, it makes up for all his alpha male stupidity.
I really like Allie too but sometimes I wanted to smack her and tell her to stop being a shrew and to get over herself. I know Levi betrayed her trust in the first novel but he did it for all the right reasons and okay, if it were me, I would have been ultra ticked too but really, he was so good to her and he tried really hard to make it up to her and not leave her in the dark again about The Society and his and her role in it. I just thought that she needed to give him a little break, much sooner than she did.
They shared some really great moments in this one and I just couldn't get enough of them. I was glad that Allie stood up for herself and that she had some great friends there to help her figure things out and to help her out along the way, one of those being Levi.
Really, I think I understood him so much more after reading this one and while I still didn't always agree with his thinking or the things he did (or tried to do) I could understand it now and accept it more.
Hailey, Anne, Owen, Jared and a new girl Tiffany were all once again great characters. People you would want to go and hang with.
So much happens in this. We learn more about The Society, about Levi and yet there are still many mysteries that you just know are buried and have yet to be discovered.
The ending wasn't exactly a cliffhanger but it definitely didn't make me want for it to be over. I was glad in some ways that it ended on the high note with Levi and Allie that it did but of course there was a low note as well that I can't wait to read about in the next installment.
I really did enjoy this and thought it was a great sequel to the series. I give this one 4 Solid Stars!
