Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken

This is the sequel to the book The Darkest Minds and it picks up shortly where that book left off.  This review will contain spoilers to The Darkest Minds, so if you haven't read that book yet, GO and read it cause it's awesome.  Then, come back and read this review.

Never Fade starts off shortly after the events that ended the first book.  Ruby is now working with the Children's League and using her special powers to persuade enemies of the League to give the League information.  She's heart broken from losing Liam and tries to use the League's resources to track him to make sure he is ok.  Then, during an op, Ruby and her teammate help rescue a special prisoner, Liam's older brother Cole.  Cole's rescue, and subsequent rifts in the League send Ruby on on a mission to find Liam, rescue information, and hopefully help save the lives of her old and new friends.

This book starts kind of slowly and Ruby kind of reminds me of Katniss during the opening of Mockingjay.  But, once Ruby is off on her missions things really get going.  I enjoyed revisiting the old characters, and I also liked the addition of new personalities.  While the first book could have stood on its own; this book ends somewhat on a cliff hanger.  I can not wait to see what happens next.
