5 stars for Rip Current (The Islands of Anarchy Series) by @JenniferAShore #dystopian #bookreview

Title: Rip Current (The Islands of Anarchy Series, Book Two)

Author: Jennifer Ann Shore

Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian

Book Blurb:

Mol thought she was done fighting. After the disappearance of the General and the discovery of the map that led to an unknown future, she wanted to leave the islands and her pocketknife behind. But with the Authority disbanded, the future of the Network weighs heavily on her injured shoulder, and she’s stuck navigating mind games, complex relationships, and the pieces of a broken system.

My Review:

The past few months have been more challenging than Mol, Sebastian, Hope, Julian, Luca, and Nico anticipated. Sure, the iron fist rule of the Authority ceased to exist. But people on the islands are hesitant to change their lifestyles and habits without a public plan in place. Mol hates sitting idle, attending endless meetings with no action taken. Everyone agrees the best plan of action is to give power to the people. But establishing a democratic government is never easy and Mol soon learns there are more secrets to unravel, more enemies to defeat. Will she be ready for the rip current swirling menacingly below her feet, ready to pull her under?

Rip Current is a tantalizing dystopian adventure. It picks up right where New Wave (book 1) left off. Jennifer Ann Shore propels the reader into a riveting story with complex characters, plenty of twists and turns, intricate action scenes and more. The plot moves at a fast pace. What makes Rip Current so compelling, though, is Mol. She’s a wonderful character with a stark perspective. She gets herself into sticky situations and questions arise which I thought about long after I finished reading. Rip Current is perfect for Hunger Games readers, looking for their next fix. Honestly, I whipped through the pages because I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. I’m eagerly awaiting the next installment. Highly recommend!
