BLOG TOUR & REVIEW - Resignation (Worlds Apart #2) by Amanda Thome

Resignation (Worlds Apart #2)

by Amanda Thome 

Release Date: 03/07/15

Summary from Goodreads:
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.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I received this book from YA Bound Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.

Resignation continues where Ruination left off and BAM, you are straight back into the characters' lives, loves, hopes and fears. The characters have all grown but when we rejoin this book, horrible choices have to be made. Ty is injured and being kept under sedation and Nessa has to make the decision between staying with Ty, her dad and little sister or going back into the fray and rescuing her first love. I will say that the letter Nessa wrote to Ty brought tears to my eyes!

This book is full of twists and turns, even more so than the first one. Some people are not who they seem to be and have their own agendas. Some of the characters are downright evil and it's not always who you expect it to be. Will Nessa, Ty, Garrett and everyone else survive? This is written in the first person but from three different perspectives which is clearly labeled at the start of each chapter.

WARNING - this book, as the first one, ends on a cliffhanger. If you liked the first book, then you will LOVE the second! Absolutely fantastic and highly recommended.

Summary from Goodreads:
What if everything came down to a single test? If your life was defined at seventeen, could you handle it? Could you accept your fate leaving the ones you love, or would you risk it all and stay?

One test stands between Vanessa and Central. One chance to make the leap across the walls to a better life. At seventeen, Central considers Vanessa an adult. Her labor role, marriage, and housing divisions will be dictated by her performance on the leap.

Dedication and unfaltering friendship has bonded Vanessa to Garrett as they fight for their chance to leap into Central. But what happens when love overtakes reason? When defiance in the name of love creates an unintentional fracture in their nation.

Without warning Vanessa is at the mercy of the nation that’s supposed to protect her. Exiled and abandoned she must fight but she find’s she’s not alone. With her heart divided she seeks her revenge, but will her stand be enough?

Ruination is the next YA dystopian trilogy that will hook you from the start! If you liked Veronica Roth's Divergent series or Suzanne Collins Hunger Games series then be prepared to get addicted to Ruination.
