Benson Fisher escaped from Maxfield Academy’s deadly rules and brutal gangs. Or so he thought. But now Benson is trapped in a different kind of prison: a town filled with hauntingly familiar faces. People from Maxfield he saw die. Friends he was afraid he had killed. They are all pawns in the school’s twisted experiment, held captive and controlled by an unseen force. As he searches for answers, Benson discovers that Maxfield Academy’s plans are more sinister than anything he imagined—and they may be impossible to stop.

There is so much more to Maxfield Academy than thought possible. Benson thought that things would be over after he left Maxfield but really things are just beginning. Benson is still the amazingly brave character that he was in the first novel although he has quite a few moments of self-doubt in this one. There are all kinds of new horrors in the town Benson finds himself in. Although there isn't a lot of major action in this novel, we do get to understand Maxfield's existence more. The relationship between the robots and the humans starts to make sense although things definitely get more complicated as well. There is more violence in this novel which says a lot about the town's resemblance in some ways to Maxfield. The ending of this novel leaves things on a major cliffhanger and I can't wait to see what happens in the next novel. I definitely recommend reading this but make sure you read Variant first.
