 Reunited but at what cost? Because when time is involved, everything can change in an instant. After travelling away from Advance Industries Faith and Kye find themselves in an unfamiliar city. Facing new enemies, old grievances and dealing with the impossible decisions awaiting them. Faith has emerged as a new woman. Determined to control her own destiny, but Kye is just as determined to right the wrongs they caused. Which will win? Morals or love? Sometimes, the one we want most is the one we're best off without and love doesn't always conquer all. They need to decide whether to listen to their hearts or their heads and they need to do it fast before their enemies close in. Please note this is the second book in the series. Book 1 Advance does need to be read first for this to be understood.
We're generally huge fans of KA Duggsy here at MOLC, you can read my review of book one, Advance here. I enjoyed Advancing...but I have to say, I didn't like it as much as I had hoped. There are a couple of reasons for this, one, I felt like she threw in some sex scenes that weren't really necessary. Sex scenes are fine, if they really make a difference to the story, I didn't feel like these did. Second, the excessive use of "babe" is soooo grating. I know that's really nit picky, but it really detracted from the sentiment in several cases. Lastly, there were a few times when certain characters over explained things excessively and it sounded far too forced.

All that said, I still liked it! There is so much good here that it far overrides the negative. Whether intentional or not, there is so much commentary on society here. From guns to political power, to technology. There's just so much commentary on society here that's really poignant. It was almost a little Orwellian in some ways. It could definitely use some polishing, but overall, I did enjoy it, and will absolutely read more from Duggsy. I would absolutely recommend this series.
