My Rating: 3.5/5

So this is the second book in the Lone City series and I found myself really enjoying it. I won't go on a huge rant with things that were slightly problematic in this review, I will say how I felt about it overall though. It was a good audiobook. I thought that the characters paths were still interesting and while we did see some growth and learnt more about some characters pasts, we didn't really see a huge leap and change. I did find myself feeling this was a bit of a filler for the final book (which I have on hold on audiobook at the library).  This book took little time to get into and while I had to concentrate, it didn't involve a lot of focus and I did love the kickass female them that it set. Especially when I was working out at the gym, it was a good distraction from how out of breath I was feeling (#sofit). I do hope to continue with this series and read some of the ebooks that are available through overdrive, but I don't feel a huge rush to jump into the next book, I'll get to it when I can. 

Thanks for reading,
