What would you do if your heart was torn between saving yourself or your first love? For Nessa that question is a reality. If she is not surrendered to Central in a week, then Garrett will be executed and war will ensue.
Countless lives rest on the shoulders of eighteen year old Nessa. Is she strong enough to surrender herself to the government that’s holding Garrett hostage? Can she sacrifice the life she’s built to save him? Life comes down to a series of decisions, the question is; could this be her last.
Jennifer's Review: Wow, so much happened in Ruination that I don't even know where to begin! I didn't think it could get any crazier- But it does - there are so many twists, turns, and things I didn't see coming in this book! Nessa is finally reunited with her family after a successful mission inside the walls but just as she has reason to celebrate she learns that they have taken Garret - her childhood friend and first love. Unless she surrenders Central will execute Garret - of course Nessa will not leave Garret to this fate but in doing so she must leave Ty behind. She along with a team from outside the divide plan a rescue mission to rescue Garret as well some other non Central folks who went in 6 years ago and never returned. If you liked Ruination then you will LOVE Resignation. It is a great sequel that will leave you beyond ready to start book 3 because unfortnately this book does end in a cliffhanger. Hopefully book 3 comes quick.
One of the things I loved was that in this book not only do we get Nessa and Ty's point of view but Garret's as well. A lot of Garret's POV was from flashbacks - we got to see what was happening with Garret during the time frame of the 1st book Ruination. All of these kinda rounded out the book for me really nicely. Amanda also introduces us to slew of new characters -- some of which you will hate and some that will grow on you. In the end she really makes you feel something for all of the characters. My only issue - CLIFFHANGER ending! So hopefully Book 3 will be coming soon!
