As soon as Luke touches down in Phoenix, he knows that something's not right.
The brand-new town is supposed to be a paradise, but it's not long before the cracks begin to show: malfunctioning phone lines, restrictions on car use, and a private security detail instead of a police force.
Then Luke, Peter and Jordan uncover the true reason for the town's existence - a secret that means Phoenix is suddenly both the safest and most dangerous place on Earth.
Someone in Phoenix is plotting to wipe out the human race.
AND THE CLOCK IS ALREADY TICKING.
This book takes place right where the first one leaves off which would be good continuity if you read them back to back (which I didn't).
Like with Arrival, this book was extremely fast paced and action driven. There is always something happening which keeps you on the edge of your seat.
This book is told from Peter's perspective (whereas Arrival was told from Luke's). I found this distracting at first as I had to keep reminding myself of that fact. In that regard, their voices were rather similar.
There were some answers to a lot of the mystery aspects in the story, however they mostly only ended up in asking more important questions.
Overall, I am really enjoying this series as not only is it engaging and fast paced it is also extremely fun to read.
