Driven by Rebecca Royce review

Driven by Rebecca Royce (The Warrior Book #2)

gifted by the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
My name is Rachel Clancy. Forty-six years ago, life as humanity understood it ended. Armageddon. Well, that’s what we call it, anyway. What other term works as well to describe the day the Vampires and Werewolves slaughtered nearly all of humanity?

When Rachel Clancy turned sixteen, she inadvertently changed the lives of everyone around her. Now, six months later she has to figure out how to live with what has happened.

Sent back into the wilderness—this time with a new love—she will find herself face-to-face with two people she never thought to see again: the boy she thought she loved and the man who wanted to destroy her since birth. If Rachel can learn what drives her forward, there may be a chance for everyone to start again. If she fails, all is lost.

 Buy from Amazon

Rebecca, honestly! Why do you have to be so ruthless? You know what I'm talking about!

Another strong installment in the series. It's not as intense as the first one, and I do believe Rachel is much more angsty in this book, but the plot is fast-paced and gripping. 

This time Rachel has to go on a journey with Chad to Liberty where they will have to ask for reinforcements to protect Genesis from the imminent underground invasion.

The journey as you can guess doesn't go as planned and soon the couple will have to run for their lives, find how complicated their new world is and make some tough sacrifices.

I still find Rachel's mixture of naivete and practical ruthlessness very refreshing. She is not sure of herself and of what she is doing, but her reasoning is that nobody else is doing what needs to be done, so it might as well be me.

I liked the end of book two and very much looking forward to what's going to happen next. My only complaint as always is that there is not enough world-building. There are some tantalising details, but I really would like to know more about the enemies and what happened after the Apocalypse.

Ещё одна неплохая книга от Ребекки Ройс. Слабее предыдущей, но всё-равно читается легко.

В этот раз Рэйчел выбирается в путешествие в Либерти - городок, у которого она и Чад собираются попросить помощи в борьбе с подступающими к Генезису вампирами и вервольфами.

Путешествие не проходит как они его запланировали и начинаются погони, драки, плен, самопожертвование, всяческие душевные мучения и немного невероятная реакция на одну из трагедий...

Книгу проглотила быстро, жду третьей части и жалуюсь на недостаток деталей, чем, впрочем страдают большинство дистопий для молодёжи.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
