Review: This book was so much better than the first book. There was hardly any teenage problems except for a little teenage romance triangle which wasn't really a triangle but the authors tried to make it be one. This book was full of action and really got into the meat of the story as well as introduced a twist. A lot happened in this book. There are two narrators in the book, Number Seven, Marina, and John who we read about in the last book. There was nothing to indicate when you were changing narrators, like a chapter title, so you had to pay attention to what was going on in the story to realize who was the first person narrator. It would have been better if they had included headings. I managed to read this book in several hours and did not want to put it down. I also would recommend having the next books on hand because you will want to keep the momentum going in the story.
