~ SYNOPSIS ~
It's been two months since the blowout with President Vise.
The Valley is rebuilding and elections have been planned, but things are about to change when a new group of refugees arrives seeking the cure. They've brought with them someone Anyon never thought he'd see again, but he's not the only one who's surprised.
While Anyon sorts out the new arrivals, Malachi's loyalty will be tested when Dax and Raven, old friends from his time on the streets, show up baring secrets he's tried hard to keep hidden. He's never shared that part of his past with anyone, and finds himself going along with Dax to prevent anyone, especially Sera, from learning what they did on the streets to survive.
But how far will he go to keep his past hidden?
Things take a turn for the worse when Dax and Raven pit Malachi against his friends. Will Sera's love be enough to prevent him from sliding back into his dark past, a past that's more brutal than even she can imagine?
~ PURCHASE ~
So I really enjoyed Andromeda the first book in this series, it was a great addition to my shelf of brilliant young adult dystopians but is book two in this series any good?
Orion's Curse has nothing to worry about, in fact even though I enjoyed book one, I enjoyed this even more. Sera and Jade along with Anyon and Malachi have settled in the Valley along with the other survivors and scientists that have created the cure to the infection that has swept through the country.
Jade and Anyon's fledgling relationship is still going strong but she hardly sees him as he has practically running The Valley by himself along with Malachi's help but his world is thrown in to disarray when arriving at their gates comes a band of survivors led by Dax.
Dax and Malachi used to be part of the same group but Dax treated Malachi like the runt of the litter and following one supply run they left Malachi behind, needless to say Malachi is not happy about seeing him especially when his former "friend" starts blackmailing him, Dax has arrived with a couple of bargaining chips in the form of Anyon's mother and another little surprise for him.
Dax wants the best of everything and he wants to be in control of the Valley, slowly but surely he starts spreading discord around the camp with the help of his girlfriend Raven who has her own agenda.
Malachi and Anyon along with the girls need to stop these newcomers before they turn their safe haven in to a lawless dictatorship.
Now I don't want to spoil it too much for you but this book has a great storyline which seamlessly leads on from the first book, it is a gripping read with plenty of action and a little romance to balance it out.
An excellent follow up!
Awarded 5 out of 5
