Liberty - Book Review


Chicago is burning, a rebellion rises, but that’s the least of Carrie’s concerns. Patrolman Simmons is assigned new partners who threaten the security and secrecy of Carrie's clan. Tensions are high, lines are drawn, and Carrie feels a wedge growing between her and Greg.

Haunted by past mistakes and impending tragedies, Greg knows he should distance himself from Carrie. He knows he should let her love the patrolman who can save her and her siblings, especially with money and resources dwindling. But knowing and doing are different matters. He's busy hatching a plan to salvage things when his citizenship backfires, and he’s asked to do the unthinkable.

In this stunning follow-up to Life, loved ones are lost, allegiances are tested, and old enemies plot revenge. At every turn, the citizens of Logan Pond must ask: What price would you pay for the liberty of those you love?

5 Stars

This book picks up right where Life left off.  There is not gap of years, its like we blink and the story continues.  

Greg is trying to put distance between himself and Carrie, she needs to be with Oliver, who can protect her and save her.  But then things change and Greg is drafted into the Army to bring down the Rebels.  Things around Greg are falling apart.  He doesn't get to say good bye to anyone, he is just carted off to begin training.  

Carrie tries to move on and see Oliver in a different light. She tries to give him a chance, even goes on a date with him.  But that backfires terribly when David see's them in town and makes a pass at Carrie.  Things couldn't get any worse, could then?  But they do.  And it effects the entire clan at Logan Pond.    Will Carrie ever see Greg again?  Will Greg even live?

This is a great series.  The clan feels like family.  But I keep waiting for something to happen to Oliver.  He can't keep taking this heat and I worry about him.  I'm not sure who I like more Oliver or Greg, they both have good qualities.  But in the same breathe, they both annoy the shit out of me.  We learn a little more about the government in this book, but mostly we focus on the Clan.  Which is very dynamic.  There is romance in the book, but nothing steamy.  A quick kiss, a look, but nothing more.  So if you are worried about your sensibilities, this book is okay for you!  And even if you aren't, this is still a GREAT series!!
