Review: The Storm (Book #2) by Virginia Bergin

Genre: Young Adult, Dystopia
Published: October 1, 2015

Pages: 336

Source: NetGalley / Bought

Ninety-seven percent of the population is dead. And the killer rain keeps falling. Ruby's not sure she can make it on her own much longer. So when a chance encounter leads her to a camp with the last boy she may ever kiss (it's not easy to date during an apocalypse), Ruby gratefully accepts the army's protection.
But safety comes with a price: If Ruby wants to stay, she must keep her eyes-and her mouth-shut.

Except Ruby stumbles across a secret she can't possibly keep. Horrified, she flips out and fights back-only to make the most shocking discovery of all...

Praise for H2O:
"Creepy and realistic. H2O left me thirsting for more." -Kristen Simmons, author of Article 5 and Breaking Point

"Ruby's candid, addicting narration brought this terrifying and wholly plausible story to life. This is a book you'll devour all at once-from the safety of your umbrella!" -Jessica Khoury, author of Origin and Vitro

My Rating:

I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review, all reviews and opinions are my own.

I liked Ruby a lot more in this one than I did in the first book. She seems to have grown up some and tries to act like an adult to the Princess when other adults are acting out and just minding their own business not worried about the children or what they do. Don't get me wrong Ruby still goes on rants and acts like a kid and even goes crazy a couple of times but she always pulls it together when it matters the most.

Apocalypses will make you find out what sort of person you are real quick, and I think Ruby finds that out by the end of this book. Some for the better others for the worse, and finds out sometimes adults aren't always in the right. She is on that precipice from kid to adult through out her travels and even though she may make some mistakes she owns up to them and tries to do better in the future.

This is the second and final book in the duology and I think it wraps up pretty nicely. I liked how through the whole book she makes it seem as if this will be turned into a movie or hopefully will be. I think this would be a good book to make into a movie. I can just see it now when she writes how she wants it done it shows that then cuts to the reality that is her. Many of the characters you read about in the first book will make an appearance in this one as well, which I liked because then you could see how these people are doing the longer they are left to their own devices.

I can't wait to see what else this author has in store for us.
