When the world ended, those who dwelled within the Dome were safe. Inside their glass world the Pures live on unscarred, while those outside—the Wretches—struggle to survive amidst the smoke and ash. Believing his mother was living among the Wretches, Partridge escaped from the Dome to find her. Determined to regain control over his son, Willux, the leader of the Pures, unleashes a violent new attack on the Wretches. It’s up to Pressia Belze, a young woman with her own mysterious past, to decode a set of cryptic clues from the past to set the Wretches free.

Review (ARC):
Once again we're brought back to the disturbing world of the Wretches although its just as disturbing emotionally inside the Dome. This novel is told from four different person's point of view, giving us a chance to see different aspects of life outside the Dome. Pressia is still the strong and capable heroine of this tale, always trying to help others although oblivious to the emotions in others. Partridge has learned a lot from his journey outside the Dome, but whether this will help him defeat his father remains to be seen. El Capitan has changed a lot, mostly due to Pressia's influence, and we get to see the more humane side of him in this novel. Lyda has probably gone through the most change from being exposed to the outside world, going from a life of relative ease to one of terror has made her strong. There are so many things to figure out in this novel, and everyone is in a race against time to try and stop Partridge's father. This story is full of action, adventure, some romance, and of course lots of danger. I definitely recommend you read this if you don't mind mutants, harrowing scenes and have a love for dystopian fiction. Make sure to pick up Pure first before attempting to read this story.
