Overview

Once a Chadi sector GEN girl terrified of her first Assignment, Kayla is now a member of
the Kinship, a secret organization of GENs, lowborns, and trueborns. Kayla travels on Kinship
business, collecting information to further the cause of GEN freedom.

Despite Kayla’s relative freedom, she is still a slave to the trueborn ruling class. She rarely
sees trueborn Devak, and any relationship between them is still strictly forbidden.
Kayla longs to be truly free, but other priorities have gotten in the way. A paradoxically
deadly new virus has swept through GEN sectors—a disease only GENs catch. And GEN
warrens and warehouses are being bombed, with only a scrawled clue: F.H.E. Freedom,
Humanity, Equality.

With the virus and the bombings decimating the GEN community, freedom and love are put
on the back burner as Kayla and her friends find a way to stop the killing . . . before it’s too late.

    Great second installment to the Tankborn trilogy! My Opinion: I

    Great second installment to the Tankborn trilogy!
    My Opinion: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.




    This is the second book in the Tankborn trilogy and since I enjoyed the first book so much, I was really happy when NetGalley approved me for this installment. Where the first book really set the stage for this very unique and interesting dystopian world, this one was primarily about Kayla and what she's going through as she tries to navigate the ins and outs of being a Kinship spy. I think one of the things I enjoyed the most about the first Tankborn book was the romance between Devak and Kayla and I really missed that in Awakening. I understand that they are star crossed lovers since Devak is trueborn and Kayla is tankborn and there should be some conflict there to keep it interesting, but there was so little interaction between then in this book that they might as well not even know each other! With this being a YA book, there should have been something going on with them and I really did miss that. I liked that Kayla began to realize that the Kinship wasn't all good like they wanted her to think they were and the fact that she began to really stand up for herself showed huge personal growth from the beginning of the series. I realize that the "second book syndrome" is hard to fight, and while I recognized it in Awakening, I was still able to read the book very quickly and enjoyed it very much. I'm really looking forward to the third book and hope that it answers the questions that were raised in Awakening, but judging from how much I enjoyed books 1 and 2, I'm fairly certain that I will not be disappointed! :D
