Lemon Fresh has seen better days. 

After the climactic battle in Babel, she finds herself separated from Ezekiel and Cricket in the wastelands. Lemon’s abilities to manipulate electricity mark her as a deviate, and deadly corporate operatives are hunting her to use as a weapon in the war between BioMaas Incorporated and Daedelus Technologies. Instead, Lemon finds herself falling in with a group of fellow deviates—a band of teenagers with astonishing abilities, led by an enigmatic figure known as the Major, who may hold the secrets to Lemon’s past.

Meanwhile, Cricket finds himself in possession of the puritanical Brotherhood, a religious cult set for a head-on collision with the Major and his band. Searching for Lemon, Ezekiel finds a strange ally in an old enemy, and uncovers a plot that may see him reunited with his beloved Ana.

And inside Babel, a remade Eve hatches a plan to bring an end to the world. 

I really enjoyed this sequel! Finally! The side kick takes the center stage! The first book was really good, and this sequel certainly did not disappoint me. I can't believe I just read this now. It was so refreshing that the majority of this book was base on Lemon's point of view. After the first book ended, I was really saddened on how everything turns out for Lemon and Zeke. 

There is a different alternating POV's in this book. At every angle, the readers where able to take grasp on what every character was going through. Although the main lead, Eve, lost all my sympathy in this book, I still hope she will be able to find her true self at the the last sequel. The climatic ending was really good. The plot, pacing and the action packed scenes really got me so hooked. There are robot battles. A mixture of Robots, X-men like humans, and human-like robots all mixed into the chaos of this post-apocalyptic world.

I am so happy that the last installment was already out, and I do not have to wait for so long. I am also very thankful for @times.reads for gifting me the whole series. Will be picking up the 3rd book in no time.
