Liberty

About the book: Chicago is burning, a rebellion rises, but that’s the least of Carrie’s concerns. Patrolman Simmons is assigned new partners who threaten the security and secrecy of Carrie’s clan. Tensions are high, lines are drawn, and Carrie feels a wedge growing between her and Greg.

Haunted by past mistakes and impending tragedies, Greg knows he should distance himself from Carrie. He knows he should let her love the patrolman who can save her and her siblings, especially with money and resources dwindling. But knowing and doing are different matters. He’s busy hatching a plan to salvage things when his citizenship backfires, and he’s asked to do the unthinkable.

In this stunning follow-up to Life, loved ones are lost, allegiances are tested, and old enemies plot revenge. At every turn, the citizens of Logan Pond must ask:

What price would you pay for the liberty of those you love?

My review: I enjoyed reading the first book in this trilogy, Life, so I was way excited when this book was released a few weeks ago to be able to find out what happened to Greg, Carrie and their families. This book scared me just a little bit, the way that the government is after those who they don't consider legal is really scary. It seemed as though it was something that could really happen somewhere though, I'd have to say that Rebecca Belliston did an amazing job of writing about the government. 

I really like the characters of Greg, and Carrie. They love each other, but neither really wants the other one to know for various reasons. I really like the way that their family is written, there are people that are friends with Greg or Carrie, but there are also people that don't like them for some reason, or annoy them, just like in real life. There were several parts in this book that made me sad, so many senseless things happen when the government takes control the way it did in this book. 

I have to say, the ending was a super crazy cliffhanger! Can't wait to read the next book to find out what happens!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
