Many thanks to Netgalley and the Publisher for my review copy, this is in exchange for an honest review.

Goodreads Synopsis:
 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.

My Review:
Wow, this book just jumps straight into it.  There isn't much of a recap from the first book so I advise that you have to read Breathe first.  If not you will wonder what the heck is going on.
I adore this series, it's only a two book series but boy does it pack so much in.  I love how the story is told from several points of view, it certainly gives you a different angle on the world created by Crossan.  And what a scary and realistic world it is.  You really do stand up and take notice of the underlying warning Crossan gets across.  It's powerful and I hope people will take it all in.
Now back to the story, as this is  a 2nd instalment I am not going to give any spoilers away as that is not my thing.  I will say that I was happy with the start, middle and end of the book.  I will also say that I just preferred Breathe just a little bit more, but don't think that this knocks resist down too much as this book is awesome too.

Like last time I think there are some amazing characters in this series. Alina still stays at the top for me, I like her bravery and she has just a touch of sass. 
I would recommend this series, it's not too exhausting on the brain and there's plenty of action and excitement.
I'm also going to check out more books by this author as I do really like her writing style.

Great end to the series, I simply loved it.

My Thoughts on the Cover:
I think this cover has to be my favourite of the year so far.  It is beautiful and very poignant.  Just love it!
