Amber,Riley,Remy,Tater and their newly found allies and friends continue on their journey to seek refuge with a group which could be friends or foes. They won't know until they get there and they carry on regardless. It really doesn't matter at this point but hope and survival are great drivers.
This journey gets harder with every step of the way. Everything is getting scarce and they face one disappointment after another. When they find somewhere where they might find something to ease their way, they have to face yet another scare. Amber finds herself in danger and the knock on effect turns disastrous for Tater who is already in a dark place.
They reach their destination after going through more than they could endure. Amber and Riley continue to dance around each other until Linette, a newcomer sticks her oar in. Amber realises that she has to do something but doesn't take the best approach. Desperation? Once they get together, sparks fly and it becomes apparent that they both had similar reservations. Phew!
After what happened at the end of the first book and what Amber recently encountered, Tater is no longer the happy go lucky lad that he was. As for Remy, she too is a different person. Their interactions are interesting and intriguing.
Unrest is fast paced and very well balanced. It's full of action, suspense, heartache and love. It's a great concept with a nice flow and palpable emotions. I fell even more in love with the characters and I am completely hooked. I can't wait to see what transpires next.
*Note* Unrest is the followup to Wendy Higgins' Unknown and isn't a standalone story. For review purposes I'm going to presume you've read book one.
The action in Unrest picks up right where it left off and we're instantly thrown back into the drama with Amber and Rylen.
I'm a big fan of Amber and her family. Amber is just as sweet, smart sassy as ever. I particularly loved her devotion to her friends and family. Although I did find myself getting a little stressed about Amber's unwavering obsession with Rylen. However, this was also what I liked about the story - it's a tricky thing to balance. I really appreciated the drama a lot more this time round and the increased pace.
There's lots of action and drama but in a different way to we saw in Unknown. The story had an almost road-trip feel in places and was an all out war in others (don't worry no spoilers). It was nice to meet lots of new characters, as well as catching up with Remy and Tater.
Wendy Higgins really upped the suspense in this one, but more importantly, she ups the romantic tension - oh the drama. There's a whole random tangent involving Remy which I didn't really get at all - to be honest it had me questioning the ages of the characters ,because they suddenly seem much younger than reported. BUT overall I enjoyed the story and have just about recovered from that flipping cliffy!!!

4.5 Thrilling Stars!!
Unrest was everything that I wanted in a second book and then some!!!
Unrest picks up right where Unknown left off. Circumstances are tough and the journey for Amber and her crew is not an easy one. Our beloved characters are trying their hardest to survive, just living one day to the next. And just when things are starting to look bleak, shelter is found. But, the question is, is it safe or is it a set-up? Amber and her crew have no choice but to seek shelter with the unknown and hope for the best…..
Unrest is a wonderful and thrilling addition to the Unknown Series. While a lot of my questions were answered, I was still left with many more. Unrest is full of action and suspense. I was on the edge of my seat and was feverously trying to burn through the pages, all to see what would happen next. And let me tell you, Unrest does not disappoint. While there is a lot of action, this story does kick up the romance and steam factor up a notch, but don’t fret. The romance is just a nice and much needed addition to the story. The story flows incredibly well and still stays focused on our beloved survivors.
Unrest hit the ground running and had me holding my breath right until the very end. And let me just say, that ending…..Well, that ending is going to leave you begging for more and in anticipation for what is going to come next! I for one can not wait to see what is in store for our survivors next and how this story is going to play out.
Oh, the HUMANITY.....
Where to begin? How about with Amber. At the end of book one (Unknown) we were left with jaws on the floor and drowning in a sea of tissues. (Can't spoil too much for those who haven't read this yet.) Wendy picks up hours after that horrific scene. You have to feel so much for Amber. Anyone who has experienced extreme, sudden loss can definitely empathize with her. What I love about Wendy's writing is how she shoves me into the character's soul. I truly feel as though I AM that character. Let me tell you, it has been a heart shredding experience so far with this series.
Amber has so much on her heart in the first half of the book. But once they find a safe shelter (can't spoil it with details) she starts to attempt to heal her shattered heart. Rylen also has healing to do. I must say that I wanted to hit him over the head with a 2x4 during certain scenes to knock some sense into that man. Guys can be SO clueless, no?
My heart went out to Tater in this second book. Seriously, if I could have crawled into the book to Mama Squish hug him, I would have. He's just drifting, yet grounded in pain. I hated seeing him turn his heart to stone like that. This book was a fantastic example of how different people express and internalize pain and loss. Wendy really did her homework on the psychology of grieving souls.
The pacing and storyline was rock solid as you would expect from anything Wendy published. The mystery of the enemy started to be revealed toward the last half of the book, but they still haven't been fully revealed in my mind... which I love. There was enough explained to give some relief but yet I still felt compelled for what was to be learned in book three. That is a tough balancing act for any author and Wendy performed it beautifully.
Remy started to really develop in Unrest. I loved getting to know her and see her mature as a character. We found out more about her drive and her skills, her determination and her grit.
As for the romance.... let's just say Wendy brought a whole new meaning to mat burn. ;)
Wendy brought her A Game to Unrest. Wit, suspense, thrills, delicious scenes & a cornucopia of FEELINGS that will leave you a puddle on your floor.
Now I will go drown in chocolate for the next 6-8 months.....
This series has it all - romance, action, suspense and enough twists and turned to keep you hooked until the last page. Wendy Higgins just has a way of writing that sucks you into the world she's writing in and she creates the most amazing characters. Besides Rylen she has introduced a host of supporting characters who I love just as much and she has kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what is going to happen to all of them, not just Rylen and Amber.
I read this book in one sitting and cannot wait for Undone to release later this year. Definitely pick up the entire series!
I thought the story was really interesting and packed with tension. You truly felt anxious as things went on, but were also glad for the respite as the world was churning out of control. We also see who this "unknown" enemy is and I really like how the author dealt with this. It was an interesting take and I look forward to getting to know more about the enemy in the next book.
The growth in the relationship between Amber and Rylan was excruciatingly perfect. I wanted to crawl out of my skin at times to get them to be real and honest with each other. The way it came together was....amazing!!!! You will not be disappointed. I also really liked Amber's relationship with her brother, Jacob Tate (Tater) and his interactions with Amber, Rylan and Remy. I am excited to see where things go for him in the next book.
The bottom line is that is a fabulous sci-fi/paranormal/adult/new adult/romance. Higgins is a gifted writer. She draws you in and makes you feel like you are part of the story. I couldn't put it down and can't wait for the last installment, Undone! You will not be disappointed.
