No Easy Way Out (No Safety in Numbers Series #2) by Dayna Lorentz

The sequel to No Safety in Numbers; a modern day Lord of the Flies for fans of apocalyptic thrillers

It's Day 7 in the quarantined mall. The riot is over and the senator trapped inside is determined to end the chaos. Even with new rules, assigned jobs, and heightened security, she still needs to get the teen population under control. So she enlists Marco's help--allowing him to keep his stolen universal card key in exchange for spying on the very football players who are protecting him.

But someone is working against the new systems, targeting the teens, and putting the entire mall in even more danger. Lexi, Marco, Ryan, and Shay believe their new alliances are sound.

They are wrong. Who can be trusted? And who will be left to trust?

The virus was just the beginning.

No Easy Way Out is the second book in the No Safety in Numbers series and I have not read its predecessor and yet I do not feel like I have missed so much information that I was lost throughout the story. I understood everything because of the way Lorentz explained past situations through character memories and thoughts. Lorentz also has this newspaper article concerning the mall lock down that also brings you up to speed! So don't worry if you haven't read No Safety in Numbers yet; you won't be lost!  No Easy Way Out is for readers twelve and up so it does read a little simpler than what I'm used to but I still enjoyed it! There are several point of views within the book which some might not like but I don't mind it at fact I love a couple different point of views within a good story!  All the kid's hormones, attitudes, and emotions are running rampant in the mall after the CDC and government put a lock down on the mall and its four-thousand plus "residents". During this time of fear, Lexi's mom, the Senator, seems to be running things within the mall. I get the impression that she means well...almost trying to run a Utopian society. Truly wanting to look out for the well being of everyone within the mall. No one really stepped up to take control with everything hit the fan, so she did and has been calling the shot since day one. She's very cut-throat! Or so she thinks, anyway. Except for some people running off the grid within, everything and everyone is monitored. Right down to when and what they eat, wear, and jobs you do. Anyone caught with symptoms of the virus or caught trying to live on their own is either imprisoned within a makeshift jail, or quarantined in the hospital they have set up. Most check in but most do NOT check out of the hospital as more and more people fall ill to the deadly flu! Lexi, Shay, Ryan and a couple others are noticing some weird thing though. Why is everyone acting like this is just another day in "Pleasantville"? Where are the bodies? Why has the government...and the rest of the world it seems, forgotten them? Are they just waiting for everyone to die? Are they going to just nuke them and be done with it? Lorentz drops a couple bombs on the reader and as the story continues to unfold, some of these questions are answered! I particularly liked Shay and Marco. I could totally feel Shay's pain and guilt over "letting" her grandmother die.  Her want to take responsibility for her sister but also feeling overwhelmed having to do so while battling her own fears. Marco...I am very interested in Marco's role in the riots and view of do or die, swindle, lie and cheat to survive this Hell. I felt like a friend of Marco's, I got where he was coming from. Survival of the fittest! Towards the end though, Lorentz takes him and another character, Mike, to the extreme! I love it! The brave citizens of Stonecliff Sentinel who can see through the image of a fully functional community are quickly finding out that there truly is No Easy Way Out!

That was a long wait for a piece of garbage book. The author could've done so much more with certain characeters. Overall this book is not worth how much I paid for it.

Braden Carver No easy way out is the name of my book. The book takes place in a mall in a unknown state. People were having another regular day until the military rolled up and quarantined the mall. People started to get infected and it spread causing a riot killing many people and trapping others. Certain zones were made for sleeping eating etc. eventually the military personnel got infected and infected others. Then the infection wiped the human race off the earth. Except the people in the mall....
