Abby Kelley returns home from the Greater city of Olympus to find that things in Orchard Village are bad, very bad. The Olympian Guard has taken over village affairs. The Lessers are being worked to the bone in the coldest winter Orchard has seen. Villagers are being dragged away for the slightest indication of what they call “resistance.” She needs to keep her head down and her mouth shut. But, it’s so hard to do when everything within you screams rebellion.
Kyan is coming on strong, trying to convince her to take a chance on him. Shocking news of Crew’s activities in Olympus sweeps through the Villages. When Abby is taken away by the Olympian guard, Kyan sends word to Vesuvius for help. But, no one could have predicted their idea of help or what they might expect in return. Who will be left to pick up the pieces of Abby’s heart?
This is the second book in a three book series by Casey L. Bond. This book is 224 pages long.
After Abby escapes the Greater city and Crew, she comes back to her small Lesser village in an unstable state. There are guards watching everyone for the slightest hint of "rebellion". If Abby thought the beating she took was bad it is nothing compared to what the guards have ordered. Inside the Greater city, things are worst, as well. There is a rebellion on the inside and Crew might just be the leader, but he has to play the part and marry who the King wishes. Abby sees the news and her heart breaks even more. How will she survive? Who will fix her broken heart? Will the rebellion win?
This was a great book and I really want to see how it pans out. There was parts where I teared up and parts where I got pissed off, too. I got really excited at a certain part, but I don't spoil so you're going to have to read it yourself. I feel like we are already live the way Abby does. The rich are the Greaters and the poor are the Lessers. Casey L. Bond is a great writer and I've already said this, but I want to read her Frenzy series really bad. I sounds like a great read and I've heard great things about it from some people. There is only mild cussing.
