In Compound Eleven, freedom from tyranny is impossible.
My name is Eve Hamilton, and I’ve managed the impossible.
I am free.
Until just like that, it is wrenched from my grasp. And this time, the corridors of the dark underground city are even more dangerous than ever before. But my brief taste of freedom has left me with something useful, something powerful, something that terrifies the leaders of Compound Eleven.
And now I have a monster inside.
One I’ll need to learn to control, and fast, or I’ll lose everything and everyone I hold dear. Starting with Wren Edelman. The one boy who has taught me that anything is possible if we stick together.
But will that matter if I become the very thing he fears the most?
At the start of the book I was not sure I would love it as much as the first. Eve has so much self-loathing. However, she really transforms herself back into the strong courageous female we know her to be. Plus, there is so much downward spiraling in this installment. I honestly was not sure when they would hit rock bottom. When they do though, the book definitely goes BANG.
With Wren, I fell for him even more in this installment. He’s everything a strong man with power should be. And, I love how he constantly uses his status for good. Of course the whole friends cast is still there and I adored seeing Hunter, Emerald, and Maggie again.
That ending!!! I was so worried for our main cast at every thrilling final turn and then bam! Cliffhanger… but, in an exciting way. I cannot wait for the third installment. I am sure we are in for one HECK of a ride and I cannot wait to go on it.
