The Ruins Synopsis:
Heartbroken, grief-stricken, and wracked with guilt, seventeen-year-old Evan Taylor returned to the Union, leaving behind the boy she loved.
Now, she and her friends must find a way to do the impossible – warn the citizens of the Union about an impending rebel attack without alerting the government and risking retaliation against her friends in the Ruins.
When every move Evan makes is thwarted, it soon becomes clear she's being watched. Faced with a daily fight to stay one step ahead of her pursuers, she returns to the Ruins. But life in the Ruins has its own dangers, and soon she’s fighting a different battle – to stay alive long enough to discover the truth.
THE RUINS is the second book in THE UNION series, a young adult romantic adventure set in the near future.
So I really enjoyed reading the first book in this series, The Union, last year, don't know what happens?, then stop and go to my review of it now before you go any further.
OK shall we continue, The Ruins picks up from where The Union finishes, our journey continues with Evan who has returned from the Ruins leaving behind Cyrus, the boy who she fell for hard.
Still distraught from dealing with leaving him behind she now has to try and warn the population of The Union that rebels are about to attack, how is she going to do that?.
Now as this is a second book in a series I'm just going to tease you with my review as I hate accidentally spoiling it for you!
So here goes, it does start off a little slow but stay with it, it is worth it. Evan has to find a way to get her warning across and with her friends she tries and figures out a plan.
Will it be too late?
Will she be able to save people from the rebel attacks?
Will she be able to find Cyrus?
This is a good book, the world once more has been lovingly set up and I really enjoyed reading about it. Evan does occasionally get on my nerves and I want to shout at her, but maybe that is because I am a mother of daughters and I just want to give her a nudge!
If you are looking for a new dystopian series, give this one a try!

T.H. Hernandez Bio:
When not visiting the imaginary worlds inside my head, I live in San Diego, California, with one husband, three children, two cats, and one dog. In addition to my day job as a technical writer and editor, I write young adult fiction. I love the intensity of teen emotions and the way they're still figuring out life.
When I'm not writing, you can find me with my nose in a book, hanging out with family and friends, hiking, or knitting. I'm obsessed with Facebook, young adult novels, bad lip reading videos, pumpkin spice lattes, microbrewed beers, and the San Diego Chargers.
