Description-

  • The sequel--and conclusion--to Sarah Crossan's Breathe. Three teen outlaws must survive on their own in a world without air, exiled outside the glass dome that protects what's left of human civilization. Gripping action, provocative ideas, and shocking revelations in a dystopian novel that fans of Patrick Ness and Veronica Roth will devour.

    Bea, Alina, and Quinn are on the run. They started a rebellion and were thrown out of the pod, the only place where there's enough oxygen to breathe. Bea has lost her family. Alina has lost her home. And Quinn has lost his privileged life. Can they survive in the perilous Outlands? Can they finish the revolution they began? Especially when a young operative from the pod's Special Forces is sent after them. Their only chance is to stand together, even when terrible circumstances force them apart. When the future of human society is in danger, these four teens must decide where their allegiances lie. Sarah Crossan has created a dangerous, and shattered society in this wrenching, thought-provoking, and unforgettable post-apocalyptic novel.

    October 1, 2013
    This conclusion to the dystopian romance begun in Breathe (2012) follows a group of teens trying to survive in the airless, derelict wilderness outside of their domed, tyrannical pod. Readers are plunged directly into the adventure with little recap. Ronan, son of the dictatorial pod minister, became disillusioned when he helped to destroy the rebels' sanctuary in the last book. Now, he joins the rebels when he meets Bea on a trip outside the pod. Also on hand are Alina, one of the first rebels, and Quinn, disaffected son of the pod's army general. Separated, Bea and Quinn try to find Sequoia, the only remaining sanctuary, while Alina heads in the same direction with her small group of survivors. However, when the groups arrive, they learn that Sequoia might be an even worse tyranny than the one they escaped earlier; worse, the Sequoia group intends to kill thousands in the pod city. By embedding one dystopia into another, Crossan keeps readers on their feet. Her gritty, lifeless world, the result of the destruction of all of the world's trees, is populated by desperate drifters who survive with portable solar respirators. Though the villains sometimes tend toward melodrama, this feeds into the extremity of the setting. An above-average dystopia; intelligent and absorbing. (Dystopian romance. 12 & up)

    Gr 9 Up-The dystopian adventure that began in Breathe (Greenwillow, 2012) comes to a mediocre conclusion. In the continued effort to find freedom for all citizens, a steadfast group of survivors are fighting two forces: a government within the domed city which regulates the air citizens breathe, and rebels outside the city. The same cast of characters returns, though there is new emphasis on Ronan, the government warrior turned rebel. His point of view alternates with those of freedom fighter Alina, privileged outcast Quinn, and empathetic Bea. Readers will require a lasting memory of Breathe or need to reread it before attempting the sequel, as many characters and plot nuances are not fully explained. In a turn of events worthy of a soap opera, the psychotic rebel leader killed off in the first book turns out to have an equally crazy sister who leads another faction of rebels. The heroes must once again escape the rebel enclave and save their people from an authoritarian government. Sprinkled amid action-packed scenes are a few stilted romances. Although the heroes are likable, the story feels forced and the pacing too quick, almost as if large pieces have been left out. Purchase where the first book is popular, otherwise, heed the title and resist.-Cindy Wall, Southington Library & Museum, CT
