“An amazing sequel that continued right where we left off in The Knife of Never Letting Go. I love how more complicated the whole situation gets the further we get into the novel - just when you think taking one, single action would cure a whole lot of trouble the unexpected happens. Gosh, great...”see full review » see other reviews »

“This book is the second book in the Chaos Walking Trilogy. Todd has just carried severely injured Viola into a city he thinks is safe. Sadly his worst enemy has gotten there first and conquered it. Now Todd has to find a way out of this mess and stop Mayor Prentiss. This book has a good storyline and goes into detail about the characters, but I would prefer some more mystery like the first book. ”Kevin wrote this review Monday, September 16, 2013.

“In this exciting sequel to The Knife of Never Letting Go, Todd and Viola find themselves in the clutches of Mayor Prentiss, who beat them to the city and has named himself President. A negotiated settlement has avoided a violent war. Prentiss imposes severe restrictions on all – separates men and women, forbids women to appear in public, rounds up the Spackle and herds them into a forced labor camp. Viola, once she has healed, trains with the healers. Todd works by day with Davy Prentiss taking care of the Spackle camp, by night he is imprisoned with former Mayor Ledger in the church tower. Can Todd and Viola find each other and escape? Will an insurgency rise up? Will Viola and Todd participate? Can the new settlers be contacted and warned? Readers who love The Hunger Games will delight in Ness’s trilogy.”MB @ the Library wrote this review Saturday, August 24, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Well written and the narrators of the audio book do a fantastic job. Overall, very depressing with tyranny, terrorists, and torture.”Chris S wrote this review Sunday, August 11, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Thoroughly enjoyed this. The book is full of tension and draws out the relationship between Todd and Violet beautifully.
The series deals with some interesting themes in a clever way. ”
“I liked this much more than the first. It tackles different tough subjects (evil vs. evil, whose side are you on?, moral choices, slavery, 'following orders', etc.) and while some are a little ham handed, some are portrayed realistically. The end was a little quick, a bit dramatic and confusing, and WARNING, lots of people die. But the portrayal and details of this society are fantastic and deep.”Luisa M wrote this review Wednesday, July 31, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Second in this trilogy develops in a surprising direction and is an extraordinarily powerful representation of the brutalities of human behaviour, echoing the worst excesses of the second world war.
I don't know how much I liked this really, but it's very compelling”
