Being one of the few survivors of the deadly Crimson Fever, Autumn Winters has been given sanctuary with the Hoover Settlement. When devastating weather sparks an emergency mission to Hoover’s sister city, Autumn along with Grey and other Hoover residents, is forced to fight for the very survival of their people. With accidents occurring left and right, mysteries unraveling at every turn, and love and loss put to the test, the second book in the Autumn series becomes nothing more than the perfect read. I must say I was very excited to read this book and when I was given the chance to I certainly was not disappointed. I enjoyed the second book as much as I enjoyed the first! It had everything that I hoped for and everything that could have been expected. The writing in this book was yet again perfect, I could feel the tension building in scenes, the sadness that occurred and even the small scenes with passion. I loved how Kirby Howell made each scene so detailed and I could imagine the events folding out before me, it made the book that much more interesting, especially the actions scenes. I also loved how I was always at the edge of my seat with every chapter, it made it more compelling to read (which is why I finished the book within a few hours!). I do not want to give away a single spoiler as I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone! It is different to anything you have read before and I can promise if you love fantasy, action, romance and strong leading characters you will fall for this book!
**I received an e-copy of this book from the author but this has not affected my review in any way. Autumn along with Grey and other Hoover residents embarks in a rescue mission despite the sandstorm after an accident happened in a settlement in Vegas..... The betrayal from someone Autumn had started to like and trust had caused more deaths and injuries..... Autumn had high hopes in rescuing someone close to her heart with the help of Grey..... Infiltrators were in Vegas and Hoover's settlements and no one could be trusted..... Grey found out something about the Crimson Fever and thinks it's the most massive terrorist attack the Earth has ever seen..... Karl's identity and his grand plan has been revealed..... These are some of the things you don't want to miss out in this second book in the Autumn series. I felt different emotions from this read. That scene when Grey and Autumn freed that traitor who caused the stampede and gas explosion had really pissed me off. I would've agreed with Franklin to just shot her or at least punish her. After the damaged she caused, she just ran away without any punishment?.... That scene when Arnett was dying and begging for help to find his family was really touching. I felt sorry for him and the other good guys serving Karl for being pressured and forced to serve him..... I don't feel the chemistry between Autumn and Grey and I find it annoying when they were discussing about their relationship just right after the attack. There were injured and dead but they weren't on panic to check on how were the others. Although I was surprised with Karl's revelations, the attack in Hoover wasn't thrilling as what I expected. Overall, this sequel was ok. It just didn't live up to my expectation. Although I like better the first book, I am still looking forward in reading the third book.
Buy this with the first book! You won't be sorry! It's a fast, action packed read and it's left me eagerly anticipating the 3rd book!
Start with the first Autumn Series, Volume 1. This book will keep you wanted more. Great for teenagers or any adult to read. I read my copy while sitting out by a pool. I couldn't put the book down. You'll enjoy!
