REVIEW, BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY - Walled by Anne Tibbets

Book & Author details:

Walled by Anne Tibbets 
(The Line #2)
Published by: Carina Press (HQN)
Publication date: December 1st 2014
Genres: Dystopia, New Adult

Synopsis:

Freedom means making brutal choices.

Rebel lovers Naya and Ric have survived one year in hiding, raising Naya’s twins from infants to toddlers in the shadow of the brutal Auberge dictatorship. They’re alive, and they’re together, but the city is crumbling around them and the haunting memory of Naya’s dark days on The Line have never fully left them. Living in isolation won’t be an option forever.

When a mysterious revolutionary seeks their help to infiltrate Auberge’s electronic heart and shut it down, it’s an opportunity—it’s risky, yes, but if it works they’ll get out of the city and taste freedom for the first time. Naya needs this. They need this.

Beyond the broken walls of Auberge, Naya and Ric find the paradise they’ve always longed for. But with anarchy reigning and Naya’s children lost amidst the chaos, they’ll need to forfeit their post-apocalyptic Eden…or commit an unspeakable act.

Book two of two.



4 out of 5 (really liked it)

I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours as part of the blog tour in return for a fair and honest review.

This is the second book in The Line series and follows Naya once more. Naya has grown a lot since book 1 but still has her own issues which also affect Ric. Although this book is more than their love story, you can't help but get involved with them as it is so poignant. Her twins have been born and they are all living in hiding, Shirel included. However, they are found by Sonya who wants them to help her start a revolution. Although they are reluctant, Sonya leaves them with things to think about and also the fact that if she can find them, so can Auberge.

The story moves on at a fast pace as Naya and Ric must decide what to do - both for themselves and for others. Naya makes her decision based upon the sort of world she wants for her twins whilst at the same time worrying if she is doing the right thing.

There are so many levels of this story - the world within the wall, the world outside the wall being just two of them. Walled will draw you in and keep you thinking even after you have put the book down. There are shocks, twists and new information for you to take in as this story moves to its conclusion. A brilliantly written book that is definitely recommended.
