Overview

How far would you go to control your own destiny?

Mia Morrissey has escaped: from America, from the Registry, from the role she was raised to play—a perfect bride auctioned to the highest bidder. She's enemy number one to the world's largest power, and there's no turning back now.

From the moment she and her friends Andrew and Carter cross the border into Mexico, it's clear their troubles are only beginning. Mexico may have laws to protect runaway brides, but as U.S. Army deserters, Andrew and Carter face deportation or worse. The young men are immediately picked up by a violent and omnipotent militia—the Collection—and it's Mia's turn to rescue them.

With time running out, her ex-fiancé's henchman on her trail, and a dangerous tide shifting back in America, Mia will do whatever she has to. Even if that means risking everything and putting herself back on an auction block. The price of freedom is never too high . . . but what if the cost is her life?

    I highly recommend the whole trilogy.

    I can't just review this book as it is part of a trilogy. Just the right amount of suspense in this unique plot. Each book moves the plot along. I couldn't put the books down through the whole trilogy. Great that the first book was a free Friday book and I was sucked right in. I would definitely read more from this author.

    Promising Sequel.


    “The Collection” picks up immediately from where “The Registry” ended, with Mia in the company of Riley and Andrew and Carter being held captive.  Riley is my favorite character in the series up to this point, and I hope we get to see more.

    My feelings on “The Collection” are very mixed.  The plot is very imaginative, and it brings up many talking points, including women’s rights, war, etc.  It is clean enough for middle readers without being too juvenile for the older young adult crowd.  Those points alone are worth the given three stars.

    Unfortunately, character development is sparse, and the writing contains way too many “he said, she said, they saids”.  I feel like if “said” were to be removed entirely, being replaced with more descriptive words, it would have been a much more pleasant read.  It would have been wonderful to know more about the internal conflicts faced by each character.  Instead, it is left somewhat dry and unexplored.

    All said, I am still going to give the third installment of the series a read, because the plot has me hooked enough to want to know how it ends.

    Switch the prices,

    To have the 1st book ~ 7$, & the next ~2$? Well I read reviews, wanted the 1st but so many things to read. Just can't spend the $ all the time. Not to say it implies worth or not.

    Good sequel

    I enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next one. However, I'm not sure if I liked it quite as much as the first one. It seemed very rushed and not quite developed. I liked the insight we got into Grant's past. I wished there was more interaction between Mia and Andrew in particular. Carter hardly says anything in this book but he's obviously a major player in the next book. Overall I love the series so far but I wish the books were longer with more detail.

    Mia has escaped the Registry and America but she hasn't escaped

    Mia has escaped the Registry and America but she hasn't escaped the danger. Her friends Andrew and Carter make it to Mexico but they boys are taken by a violent militia The Collection and Mia is the only one who can save them. Andrew and Carter are tortured and brain washed to forget what they know and to become killers. Mia will have to face not only danger from the Collection but the henchman her ex fiance has sent after her. She also has to help the boys gain back heir loss memories. The journey just may take her right back to where she has run from the auction block and America.

    I liked the first book in this series but I believe I liked this one better. Mia in the first was spoiled, seemed weak and even while she put a brave front up at times she would just grate on your nerves. In this book she grows up so much. She has the chance to be safe but she refuses to do that in order to save the ones she cares about. She shows such an improvenment in her attitude you can't help but like her in this one. All places seem to have some kind of danger in this series. In Mexico it is from militia and in America it is a danger really to be a woman. You have to do what men say and go to the highest bidder. I hated Grant in the first book but I will say a few times I actually felt sorry for him in this one. You get to see what shaped him into who he is today. However you also still see the ruthless side of him in this one and everything he will do to get what he wants. This book has more adventures, action and danger and is a great sequel. I look forward to seeing the end of Mia's journey and what all she will change because I believe she is possible now of doing many things.
