In a lot of ways, I liked this one more than the first. I already knew a lot of the characters, so it was easier to dive into the story without having to have them explained to me.
Cori is the type of female lead I like to see in books, especially YA. She is less focused on a love interest, although that is in here, and more her goals. She has a healthy and realistic balance.
I definitely enjoyed the characters from The City the most. I would love to read more about them.
This is one of my favorite YA dystopians I've read. Highly recommend it to fans of the genre.
