Finally! I was so happy to see this sequel. After the crazy ending from the last book, I was dying for more of this story. This one contains everything the first book provided, though this book was a bit easier to take. We see more of the slaves, including Danny (number X), who has not been doing well since Eric's (number IX) apparent demise.
When this story begins, there is so much hope that Danny and the others will be saved, but, of course, that would be too easy. What comes next is a shadow of what we saw in the first. We learn that Danny still has hopes of escaping and now thinks Jeff is his ticket to freedom.
There are more twists and turns and many manipulations, and, again, we are left with many questions. Definite 4.5 star read for me. Although this is totally worth the price, I didn't feel it was nearly long enough. I really hope we don't have to wait too long for the next installment.
