Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite Erased, by author Jennifer Rush, is the second book in this series and picks up where Altered left off. Anna, Sam, Nick, and Cass were on the run from the Branch. Their life had been altered, their memories wiped out and new memories created. The Branch used the males as assassins and Anna as their control. In this episode, the group discovers that Anna’s older sister Dani was alive. They have a decision to make: try to contact Dani or play it safe and run. They leave the decision up to Anna. She knows they would be no better than the Branch if they took the easy way out. Trevor had turned on them in the last book and was now with the Branch; however, Anna turns to him for help in finding Dani. Erased is a Young Adult book falling into multiple genres. I would classify it as thriller, suspense, mystery, sci fi, romance and intrigue. I fell in love with this series when I read the first book. I loved the characters then and find they have been further developed, making them more complex. It was interesting to watch the group dynamics as they shifted, changed, and interacted with each other. Erased is told from Anna’s point of view and was the easiest to connect with. Jennifer Rush added twists and turns throughout the book, taking the reader by surprise. I do recommend reading book 1 before reading Erased. The narrator/reader is Casey Holloway. Her voice has just the right inflection, expertly showing Anna’s emotions.

I am not sure if the author is planning on writing another book for this series, but I sincerely hope she does! This story does so well picking up where she left off in the first story. I adore the storyline in this book so much. I admit, there were some pieces of the puzzle I guessed right all along, but the way she handled it gave a twist that made me excited and nervous. This book has fewer pages than "Altered" but don't let that fool you. It packs a punch (no pun intended) that will have you waiting for book three. I really hope they make movies from these books.

I enjoyed this sequel to Altered so much that I literally couldn't put it down and stayed up until I finished it! It was fast paced and full of action and surprises! As the characters continue to have flashbacks, the reader gets carried along on this mystery trying to put together the pieces and figure out what really happened on that night that seems to have started this whole adventure. More characters are introduced and it's shocking to see how far the Branch has gone in their experiments. At the end, you could almost think the story was over...but I happen to know there's a third book, so I'm very eager to see what happens next. If you enjoy dystopia, mystery, action/adventure, or of course, the first book in the series, you're sure to love this book!

***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** Erased by Jennifer Rush Book Two of the Altered series Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers Publication Date: January 7, 2014 Rating: 4 stars Source: ARC borrowed from a friend Summary (from Goodreads): They thought they had escaped. They were wrong. After fleeing the Branch with Sam, Cas, and Nick, Anna is trying to make sense of the memories resurfacing from her old life. At the same time, she's learning how to survive in hiding, following Sam's rules: Don't draw attention to yourself. Always carry a weapon. Know your surroundings. Watch your back. Then a figure from Anna's childhood reappears. Is it a Branch setup, or could it be the reunion Anna has hoped for? Uncertain of where her loyalties lie, Anna must fight to learn the truth -- before she is betrayed again. Ultimately, the answers hinge on one question: What was the real reason her memories were erased? Jennifer Rush delivers a thrilling sequel to Altered in a novel packed with mysteries, lies, and surprises that are sure to keep readers guessing until the last page is turned. What I Liked: Oh, how I waited for you, Erased. It's been a very long time since I read Altered. I think it was the first book I read this year - it's fitting that Erased will be one of my last books read for 2013 (#167 of about 180 books projected). What an amazing series! One of the best things about these books is that while I really remember Altered (I re-read that book so many times), I jumped right into Erased, without having to re-read Altered. I'll freely admit that I loved the first book more than this book. Altered was SO AMAZING. It's definitely going on my top ten of 2013 at the end of the year. This book (Erased), to me, wasn't as awesome as its predecessor - but I'm not saying it was awful or anything. This book is fabulous! An awesome sequel to one of my favorite series. And a thriller, at that! I don't read too many thrillers, unfortunately.  A few months have passed, between book one and book two (I believe it is two months... I hope I'm not completely off). Anna is now struggling with flashbacks, just like Nick and Sam had been. She remembers bits and pieces of her old life, with her sister, and sometimes the boys. But her flashbacks are often painful... indicating that something terrible happened in her past, something that the Altered program really did not want her to remember.  The plot of this book follows Anna and her flashbacks. Two people from Anna's past reenter her life, and one key person from the program shows up as well. Things are not as they seem, with the program, the flashbacks, the people from Anna's past. Trust no one seems to be the general mantra... I feel like not as much happened in this book, like in Altered. However, the plot was very interesting, and I felt engaged in the story. I wanted to know what Anna was remembering. I wanted to know what was up with the Altered program. I wanted to know more about Nick. It's kind of awesome how Rush is making Nick more and more of a primary character in this series - and I believe the third book in this series is in Nick point-of-view. I'm not one hundred percent sure though.  The romance in this book is present, but not as much as it was in book one. Book one didn't have much romance in it either - meaning, Rush didn't make it the forefront of the novel. I like this though. But in this novel, the romance is present even less. There is a distance between Sam and Anna, but we know why, as the story goes on. I liked the romance in this book, but there aren't many swoony scenes in this book. Overall, I really enjoyed this book! It's definitely a great sequel - probably one of my favorites. I would make this one a priority, if you liked Altered. I LOVED Altered, and I'm glad I got the chance to read Erased. But hey - it is totally worth the wait! What I Did Not Like: I can't really pinpoint what exactly I did not like about this book. I think it's because this book is on the short side, and while a good amount of action happens, it feels like there wasn't much to it. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the story and the plot. But I feel like less happens in this book than in book one.  Also, Dani. Shaking my head right now. You are silly, Anna.  Would I Recommend It: DEFINITELY! I loved Altered, and I think Rush does book one justice with Erased. Book one was better in my opinion, but book two is so great. If you read and liked/loved book one, and then you will definitely enjoy book two. And then you'll be joining me in begging for book three. Yes - begging! Rating: 4.5 stars -> rounded down to 4 stars. A really great sequel to this series! I cannot wait to read the third book.
