Don't recommend it.
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on March 6, 2016
I read The Scavenger's Daughters and LOVED it, so I had to read the sequel, and this was it. If you haven't read the first book, I recommend reading that instead as this book took such a different turn than the first. If you have read the first book and are debating on whether or not to read this one, I suggest leaving it alone.
The Scavenger's Daughter was more uplifting and inspiring. This book was dark. I could not stand the heroine. In all her suffering, I wanted to like her, but her weakness, her gullibleness, and just flatly, her stupidity; I could not root for her. Sure, she's a victim of domestic abuse, and doesn't know any better and is desparate, but in all the times she claims to care about her son, she puts him in more danger than she's trying to avoid. Speaking of her son... he's 10, but I could not get passed the fact that the author made him sound like he's 5! The way he talks, acts..... very immature for a 10 year old.
I don't recommend it. Stick to The Scavenger's Daughters.
