Goodreads:  Even if you have choices, sometimes you only have one worth making. 

The war had been raging for as long as anyone could remember. The secret, endless war between two opposing sides—one good, one evil. Neither side knows which is which; it is kill or be killed in an invisible conflict where assassination is the weapon of choice.

When she was just seventeen, Maria was pulled into this secret war and they killed her lover and stole her child. Now they are telling her to go home. To ignore what she knows is going on in the shadows all around her. They told Maria to forget all she’d lost. The trouble is, some things simply can’t be forgotten.

Now, with a loose-cannon killer at her side, Maria is going to do whatever it takes to get back what belongs to her. And that means starting a war of her own…

Kritters Thoughts:  What a sequel!  Maria is now alone without her husband and her child has been taken away from her and taken to the other side.  She must find someone and depend on them to help her get back her child and find safety for the both of them.  

I read the first book in the Children of Paranoia awhile ago and loved it, so I was definitely excited and anxious to read the second one.  It picked up the story where the first one left off and the author recapped the first book with ease, so even though it had been awhile, I didn't feel like I was missing anything or at the same moment things were repeated again and again.

The one thing that I am hoping will be revealed in the next installment is more details and definition about the War.  I still feel a little out of the loop about the sides, it could be for a reason, but I definitely feel like I know the characters involved, but not all of the details.

This sequel not only lived up to the first one, but made me excited for the next one!  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel (or the third in this series!)

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Penguin Publishing.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
