Product Description


…a compelling new fantasy series. --Rhianna Pratchett, SFX Magazine on Poison Study

The plot twists and turns…and the story as a whole is peopled by convincing and well realised characters. Verdict: 9/10. --Total SciFi on Fire Study

The fact is, Inside Out is everything you could want in a YA dystopian novel. Loner heroine with the hidden potential to lead a revolution? Check. Intriguing set-up with secrets galore to uncover? Got it. The makings of an addictively unlikely romance? Sure thing. Oppressed masses, imagination-pleasing gadgets, a truly evil female villain... It's all there. It's tense and exciting and compelling and at times it's even... cute. In fact, if I have any doubts about this one, it's that it's a little too spot on. I usually like my dystopians slightly on the out-of-the-ordinary side, and for me Inside Out reads more like it's written to formula. A really, really perfect formula. It even manages to deliver an ending that is simultaneously satisfying and cliffhanging, and that's no small achievement. So, I won't hold its perfection against it. I loved every minute, and I'm counting the weeks till the sequel, Outside In, hits bookstore shelves in 2011. Inside Out is a book that'll whisk you off to its fascinating future world from the very first page, take you on a breathtaking dystopian adventure, and leave you clamouring for more. It's the kind of book that makes your imagination happy. I'd recommend it to YOU. Yes, you. Go on, read yourself some dystopian goodness. --Amazon Customer Review for Inside Out

The plot was very nearly as awesome as the first book, Inside Out.

There is a couple of twists, which was nice. If you were watching my updates on Goodreads, you probably know that I now consider myself psychic as I predicted what was going to happen before it happened. Then again, does that mean that the twists were rather obvious? I'll let you be the judge of that one.

The ending left me wanting more, I wish I could have seen more of what was going to happen after the events in this book ended. Is there going to be another book? Because this did seem like the end, unfortunately.

The ending did seem slightly rushed, and it did seem like the author just wanted to put a lid on this story. However, I may well be wrong, as this may not be the end of the series *crosses fingers*

As with the first book, Trella was a brilliant female lead. I have not got much to say about her to be honest with you, as she stayed pretty much the same throughout the course of the book. Being the evil person that I am, I did love watching her struggle with her new role in this society.

As for Riley... I wanted more Riley, darn it! He really wasn't in this novel as much as I expected him to be, and I was a bit disappointed. But, when he was in it, he was just as amazing as he was in the first book.

Jacy is also a character I wanted to see more of - but that's mainly due to the slight crush I seemed to develop for him in the first book. He's badass. Yup. And I do still think he and Trella should get together. This is one love triangle I would be supporting.

The antagonists - not to reveal any spoilers - were very interestingly done.

I absolutely loved Inside Out so I was really excited about reading the follow up, Outside In. I was almost completely singing the author's praises for creating such an interesting and original first story, and I'm going to continue singing because I absolutely LOVE Outside In - perhaps even more so than the first one!

In this book, the people of Inside are trying to figure out how to reconstruct their world after the revolution, but this time Trella doesn't want to be involved. She wants to leave the politics to the other leaders and get back to her own life. Except things are going wrong. Riley isn't happy and nobody can agree on anything and the Insiders are getting more and more annoyed as nothing gets done to help improve their quality of life - particularly the Scrubs. And then they find out that something wants to get Inside. Something dangerous that could destroy everything that the Inside has worked for. What can Trella do? She knows she has to step up and help out but has she got the guts to do it?

Trella was still the same likable character that she was in the first story. To start off with she wasn't the strong, determined girl that she became during the revolution. She took a step back and was naive enough to think that her job was done, but as the story progressed she began to learn that she was NEEDED more than ever. She made mistakes during the story but tried her hardest to correct them and that was why I liked her so much. She learns and develops and there isn't one point in the book where I doubted her.

Riley was GREAT again. I was really drawn into with the relationship that he had with Trella. Neither of them were perfect and they had their ups and downs, which really gripped me and made me believe in them as a couple.

After being the reluctant leader of the Force of Sheep all Trella wants now is for everyone to get along with each other, spend time with Riley and exploring more of Inside, especially as the committee is not listening to her ideas. However, things are not going as anyone planned Inside, as the Scrubs and Uppers don't like and are distrustful of each other and someone is setting explosives to sabotage the Inside. Now with an even greater threat coming Trella is struggling to know who to turn to and trust.

Outside In is a very good sequel to Inside Out as it is more action packed, has more twists and more intrigue. In this book you really feel you are stuck Inside with Trella and cannot tell who she should trust. I really like this book as it answer the question what happens after you stop an oppressive regime?

I like Trella as she is strong, stubborn and grows in herself during the book, but it is annoying how she kept things from Riley and was stupidly reckless. I really liked Riley as he is more confident in this book and surer of himself. While the romance is probably more realistic, I did not like the tension between Trella and Riley in this book. My favourite secondary character in this book is Logan as I really like loveable geeks.

This is a really good second book and while I know it is the end of Trella's story, I wish there was more. I would recommend Outside In to people who enjoyed the first book Inside Out.

*Possible spoilers of Inside Out*

Following the rebellion and the discovery of Outside, the people of Inside are struggling to deal with their new found freedom. Things haven't gone quite as planned and the Committee (those now in charge) are having to take measures which make them not so different from the previous leaders.Trella expected a quiet life following the rebellion but people are expecting her to step up and be a leader. And then they have the issue of something trying to get Inside.

Outside In follows on nicely from the previous book with a little recapping of what happened without repeating too much. The story is as exciting as the first, full of twists and turns, leaving you not knowing what is going to happen next or who to trust. There's plenty of action going on as well as getting to know the characters more and exploring the relationships between them. We also find out more about the history of Inside.

A great story world and impressive writing makes this one of my favourite books of the year so far.
