I've read the first book in the Confederation Chronicles – Land of the Unaltered- and I really liked that book, but between these two, I liked this one just a bit more. Secrets of the Unaltered continues the story of Flynn and Rose which is set in a dystopian society where appearance and following the trend is everything for those who live in the capital city of Civitas. In this second book, they head back to the capital city, with Meliah joining them. By the time I reached the end, I found myself drawn deeper into this tale. Having read books 1 and 2, I definitely want to read the third book. We learn more about some of the details addressed in the first, including some surprising revelations.
Rose Dartmoor is a great character. It's interesting to see how she's further developed, as well as Flynn Rivers, in Secrets of the Unaltered. Their relationship is strained a bit by what's going on, but for both of them, the reasons are understandable. I also like Constantine. There's one scene in this book that features him and Flynn, and I was cracking up as I read it.
One of my favorite parts of this series is the great descriptions of the scenery, and can picture it clearly in my mind. That was true in the first book, with the town of Eureka surrounded by forest the same way Civitas is a city of glass, steel, and concrete lit up with whatever the fashionable color is.
I really enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to those who like dystopian or post-apocalyptic fiction. Leti Del Mar has created an intriguing world, and I give this book 5/5 platypires.
