I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book picked up right where book one left off but from Lindsey's point of view.  It again sucked me right in.  I couldn't put it down.  The ruling parties of the Bastion are at it again.  The SWD is attempting to sabotage the President and take over. Food supplies are running out.  Something needs to be done ASAP or everyone will starve to death.  The Scrags have been cleared out and farming has begun.  Unfortunately someone sabotages the food supply and riots break out.  I really don't understand how someone can sacrifice something as basic as food for a political agenda.     Lindsey and Torran, a member of the SWD, have a friends with benefits relationship.  They're trying to protect their hearts from heartbreak because they've both lost loved ones.  They fall for each other anyways.  They are on opposite political parties and are both keeping secrets.  I love these two together.  They understand each other.  I hate that they're keeping secrets.  I hope those secrets don't tear them apart. Lindsey and Torran are selected for a team being sent out to scavenge food from old settlements. They must travel out into the world of the Scrags to aid the survival of the Bastion.  Unfortunately, the team has a hidden agenda.  Torran is tasked with finding Maria and Dwayne, from book one. This sets up a conflict because Maria is Lindsey's best friend.  Lindsey doesn't want to see Maria captured and put in a cage in a lab.  Torran will do anything to keep Lindsey safe, even capture her best friend for a cure to the virus.  I found it a tad funny that they both knew the same intel but kept it from each other.  They weren't sure what the other knew.   Again, I could go on for days explaining what's going on in this book.  There is so much.  I loved it.  It kept my mind engaged throughout.  I never knew what was going to happen.  I didn't know who to trust.  I was frustrated that Lindsey and Torran didn't share all their intel.  I loved Teeny the drone that Lindsey programmed.  I loved how this book ended; although I was scared for a bit when Torran had to return to the Bastion.  Another great book. 4-Bombs Reviewed by Tracy

The Last Mission of the Living by Rhiannon Frater held a major concern for me: could this book live up to the first one in the series, The Last Bastion of the Living, or would it fail like so many second books have? Well, I am happy to announce that it certainly did live up to my very high expectations! This book is unique in that it covers a whole new set of main characters, so if you wanted to read it as a stand alone, then it would completely hold up on its own. However, it is still set in the world of the first novel and uses many of the same characters from Bastion as well. Ultimately though, this novel also ties in with the first one as the end starts to intertwine with the events that unfolded at the end of the first novel. One other thing I was a little concerned about while reading this book was how it started off feeling like this series would be a two book deal. Honestly, the first conflict (in book #1) had occurred and been sorted and the second book had also had it problem set up and was on the path to being resolved. And this made me sad. Mainly because I love the world building Frater has created and I didn’t want it to be over quite so quickly. But fear not! Rhiannon has managed to add more conflict that can ultimately lead into another book. All this is done without the clunky feel of your typical second novel, where there isn’t much action per se other than to set up all the pieces in place for the next book. Once again I completely fell in love with the new set of characters and even found some extra enrichment for characters that I suspected I would turn out to completely hate from the first book. While I am happy to rave about this novel as much as the first one, there was one moment where I felt the tension that should have been deliciously rich in one of the action scenes just wasn’t there. I’m not sure why it didn’t work for me, especially since every other action scene had me on the edge of my seat. Also, I am pretty sure there is a bit of a time frame issue that occurs when the main characters are climbing up endless stairs. While it takes them (what seems like) forever to get there, the scrags manage to do it in a record amount of time. Overall, I am giving The Last Mission of the Living by Rhiannon Frater 4.5 stars out of 5!
