Overview

“ARENA TWO takes ARENA ONE to a whole new level. Move over THE HUNGER GAMES!”
--Allegra Skye, Bestselling author of Saved

From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice, comes Book Two in THE SURVIVAL TRILOGY, a new trilogy of dystopian fiction.

Having just escaped from the treacherous island that was once Manhattan, Brooke, Ben, Logan, Bree and Rose make their way up the Hudson river in their stolen boat, low on fuel, low on food, and desperately needing shelter from the cold. On their tails are the slaverunners, who will stop at nothing until they capture them and bring them back.

As they make their way upriver in this post-apocalyptic, action-packed thriller, on their way to try to find the mythical city in Canada, they will need to use all their ingenuity and survival skills to stay alive. Along the way they will encounter crazed survivors, roving gangs of predators, cannibals, wild animals, a desolate wasteland, and an unstoppable blizzard. They sustain injuries, get sick, and the Hudson freezes over as they do their best to salvage what they can and avoid the slaverunners’ pursuit. They find a small island and think they have found respite—until events don’t go their way. It is not until they board a mysterious train to nowhere that they find that things can always get worse.

Along the way, Brooke’s feelings for Logan intensify, as do her feelings for Ben. Torn between these two boys, caught between their jealousy, she is unsure how she feels—until events choose for her.

As they find themselves thrown back into an arena, they are shocked to discover that Arena Two is even worse. Thrown into a barbaric fighting stage, equipped with weapons, pitted against other teenagers—and against themselves—Brooke and the others will be forced to choose what’s important, and to make the most difficult sacrifices of their lives. Because in Arena Two, no one survives. Ever.

“Addicting....ARENA ONE is one of those books that you read late into the night until your eyes start to cross because you don't want to put it down."
--The Dallas Examiner

“Grabbed my attention from the beginning and did not let go….This story is an amazing adventure that is fast paced and action packed from the very beginning. There is not a dull moment to be found.”
--Paranormal Romance Guild {regarding Turned}

“Jam packed with action, romance, adventure, and suspense. This book is a wonderful addition to this series and will have you wanting more from Morgan Rice.”
--vampirebooksite.com {regarding Loved}

“Morgan Rice proves herself again to be an extremely talented storyteller….This would appeal to a wide range of audiences, including younger fans of the vampire/fantasy genre. It ended with an unexpected cliffhanger that leaves you shocked.”
--The Romance Reviews{regarding Loved}

    Rip off!

    This series is SOOOOOO a rip off of the hunger games! Rice just stole the story and tryed to mess it up. I say this book is not worth ur money, time, or anything else. Do NOT Get! Please! Save yourself! The only reason this book has good reviews is that the people who read the first book hated it and didn't bother to waste their $ on this book. Only the rare few who could stand the first book got this one and said it was good. Boo arena books!!!!!! >:^( Go Hunger Games!!!!!!!!! :D

    Eh..

    The survival trilogy is jusr like the hunger games, but with a twist. This trilogy is defintly more gruesome than the Hunger Games but I think if morgan rice could write better this would be the best of the two triligys. Rice definitly needs to work on her editing, i found many obvious mistakes in the book and i found it hard to concentrate on te story rather than her grammer. Once, she got the main characters name wrong. Seriously. I think the storyline is great and if you can get past grammer issues, then u should definitly buy this book.

    Didnt live up to the first

    I loved Arena One. But during that whole book I was waiting for Ben to die and Logan to run away being the hero. So this book really was a disappointment. It seemed like Brooke lost some of her momentum. Before all her father taught her kept her going and her fight for Bree. She was respectable and strong. In this book it just felt like she sat back and was weak. Ben became a bigger loser, understandably so after the tradgy he faced in the last book. I loved the character Logan. He was strong and brave and smart. This book I was expecting to learn more about him and for his character to reach a new depth but that didn't really happen. This book was disappointing compared to Arena One. If you really like Arena One, I'd say read it, just to get some closure of what becomes of some of the characters. Maybe the next one will improve. But I'm not too hopeful after what happened

    Annoying read

    The author needs a thesaurus or something. The most used word? Suddenly. Suddenly this, suddenly that. I started cringing everytime it came up. As if the author just couldn't figure out how to express how an event could happen quickly,without warning, without using Suddenly. It would've been a less annoying read if the same three or four phrases weren't used CONSTANTLY. Multiple times per page. The editor didn't do a very good job. This book is basically the hunger games, only less well written.

    Hunger Games Clone

    Arena Two is really another take of The Hunger Games. It is really hard to believe that the main character can really survive all the arenas. Looking forward to the third book mainly to see if there is a happy ending to this series

    Arena Two

    I generally don't like post "end of the world"reads. Unsure I knew what I bought with Arena One and Two. But these books take you past the end of the world and searching for a way tovsurvive. Brooke is the hero and her baby sister. They line up at the end with another group of poeple to survive the world of being captured and finding a way to outsmart them. It really keeps you thinking "what if" and where is God through all this. Riveting...
