Review originally posted on A Frolic Through Fiction:[...].

Ohhh I left it too long.

I knew this would happen. I’ve been going off so many series lately, I just knew it would happen.

It’s so strange, because I reread The Darkest Minds before Christmas and loved it. But this one? …Meh.

It could just be because of this phase of not-liking-books-I-used-to-love-anymore. It could be because I really wasn’t in the mood for it. I don’t know.

Starting the book, I was really confused. It wasn’t clear to me how much time had passed, and it sort of just seemed like a huge jump had been made. Somewhere between the end of the first book and the start of the second, a whole new bunch of characters made it to “main character” status, and our lead character Ruby had gone through a whole heap of training. But compared to everything else – the situations, the other characters – it seemed not that much time had passed.

This book definitely takes on the same themes as the first. It’s a conspiracy type story, where you don’t quite know who the villain of the story is because what’s the truth? That just seems to be the driving force of the book – what’s the truth?

There’s just constant action. The entire book is a journey to find the truth, and all the “boring” parts of the journey are left out. It’s usually a good thing to have a book that’s non-stop. But for me, it sort of got to a point where I’d be thinking “oh my goodness, what now?!” purely because THAT MUCH goes wrong. There’s so many problems during this book, it got a bit tiresome for me. When it’s just one bad thing after another, one constant stream of problems…it just made the story unrealistic to me.

What this book is about(if you haven’t read the first book, The Darkest Minds you should skip this review. Spoilers ahead!):

Ruby is now a vital part of the Children’s League as a Leader of a small group of kids. Vida, a Blue girl with a big attitude, Jude, a yellow guy who doesn’t understand danger and the way this horrible world runs and Nico, a Green computer whiz. A few months have past since Ruby swiped Liam’s memory clean of every single representation of her. Now she is a trained agent who is not afraid of her Orange abilities anymore. Now she has to use these abilities to leave the Children’s League and find Liam, the same Liam who doesn’t remember her name, and retrieve from him something of great importance for the future of all the Psi kids in America.

One thing I know for sure about this series is that if I read it when I was 16 I would have absolutely fallen in love with it. This is a great series for adolescents who are into dystopian adventures. As an adult now, I still enjoyed it but it’s not the literary diamont I was waiting all my life to read. This is a fun, fast-paced adventure, full of action and enough twists and turns to keep things interesting until the very end. It is rear from a first-person perspective, as was the first book in the series, and we follow Ruby and her new friends, Jude and Vida. Never Fade is approximately as big as The Darkest Minds and it continues off, some months after the end of the first book.

The story of the first book is, in my opinion, much darker, compared to this second book. Never Fade doesn’t need to introduce us any more to the harsh reality of life for the Psi kids and so we are more interested in the relationships between the characters but also the conspiracies taking place in the U.S.

Never Fade was action-packed and kept me turning the pages constantly. I loved every second of it, it made me laugh and it made me cry.

Cole was definitely a surprise. I did not see that coming. But I'm excited to see his story line in In The Afterlight and how his relationship with Liam will evolve.

I loved how strong Ruby became, she kicked ass, especially in that ending!

This is a really excellent book. 2nd of trilogy, the first book was quite slow-moving and a bit tedious in places, whereas this one starts off at a pace and keeps it up all the way to the end. Very well written and good characters. If you like books like Through the Ever Night (trilogy), divergent, prodigy etc you will like this.

Seriously, if you don’t like roller coasters, get off this trilogy now, because you’re in for an emotional one. I mean seriously. In this wonderful sequel to The Darkest Minds, Bracken spares no emotions for her reader and plunges you straight into the heart of the novel. There are tonnes of new characters to care for, millions of more reasons to care for the already existing ones and heart-breaking relationship developments. Not only this, but there is seriously some crazy action and plot development. Never Fade is basically fantastic.

Apart from one thing. It’s probably personal opinion that loads of others will be like “uh, no!” to me on, but this book took too long to start. Bracken basically drops us in the middle of whatever it is that Ruby’s doing straight away with no easing us in at all. I like this in a lot of books, I like the mystery and intrigue it causes, but it didn’t work for me with Never Fade. I wasn’t overly obsessed with The Darkest Minds as many other people were, which may be why I find this sequel difficult to get into, but Bracken takes over a hundred pages to even begin to give us some answers to the questions we had leftover in The Darkest Minds… Like, whether Chubs lived or not. Seriously, by page 100, I was like “IS CHUBS ALIVE OR NO WOMAN BECAUSE I CAN’T HANDLE THIS!”

But in saying this, after this slump went away and some of my questions were finally being responded to, I got so into this book it was unreal. Literally, I could barely put it down. The action and story she began to tell were fascinating, and there was so little info-dumping now cause I was finally into the story. And man, it was a killer. The middle part of the book was definitely the best - tension was up in the air and god Liam, just Liam… Everything Liam related killed me.
