Raging Sea by Michael Buckley

In the first book of Michael Buckley’s Undertow trilogy, the Alpha arrived and the world was never the same. At the start of the second book, most of south Brooklyn is in ruins and the nation is terrified. Nearly everyone that Lyric Walker loves is either missing or presumed dead, including the mesmerizing prince Fathom. It’s up to Lyric to unite the Alpha before the second wave of a cataclysmic invasion wipes out mankind for good. The Undertow trilogy is an unforgettable reading experience that author E. Lockhart calls, "Allegorical and romantic, the book nevertheless reads like an action movie with especially awesome CGI."

I really enjoyed the first book in this trilogy. This book started off slow, bug started to build some momentum maybe about 70 pages in. When Tempest finally comes into the picture, it got intese, and I enjoyed reading it. The part that readdresses the love story and then events shortly after the torture and malnourishment felt really out of place. Then the whole reaction to the betrayal, the hatred, and silent treatment just made the whole love story seem stupid, and I stopped caring about it. Then the end battle gets good again, but then it randomly ends. Overall, I was disapointed with this book because I expected it to be better than the first, as is the case with most trilogies.

If you like dystopian/apocalyptic/YA books, this should be right for you...with that being said, it is not a stand alone book, you absolutely have to read the first book in the trilogy, Undertow, to make any sense out of Raging Sea. It starts up right where book 1 left off, with Lyric Walker, her bff Bex and her frenemy Arcade trying to get to a virtual fortress of evil scientists and experimentation, Tempest, in order to find those who has survived from the attack in the first book. I found the story to move along at a good pace with plenty of action and suspense, however I did find this book lacking in character development and the argument between Lyric and her love interest Fathom to be unnecessary in it's stubbornness and too lengthy, but other than that, it is a book for 9th graders on up so it is appropriately written for it's intended age group. This quote from Arcade about sums it up..."Your city has been demolished. Your friends are dead and gone. Enemies roam your lands. Soldiers have taken your people, torn them from the arms of their mothers, all to cut them open and see how they work! Does none of this burn your passions? Where is your fury?" I can't wait for book 3.

All I can say is wow. It was perfect. It complimented the first book of the series perfectly. I waited nearly a year after finding the right book to get my hands on this new release. I was not disappointed. I missed Lyric so much. She has to be one of my favorite characters ever because of how self aware she is. The undersea world that Buckley has created us superb. It is interesting the different kind of species. It hooks you as you imagine what each one looks like how they will react in a battle. My favorite part was the end. I don't want to give much away but Lyric is amazing. Goodbye for now Lyric and I will miss you terribly. I'm excited to read the next installment. I am definitely giving this book a standing ovulation.
