Entering book 2, we know the truth of Wayward Pines. What is beyond the electric, razor-wire fence and why no one can ever leave. Ethan has accepted the position of Sheriff to be with his wife and son. When a woman who was tasked with infiltrating a rebel group in the town is found dead, Ethan is asked to investigate.
It’s hard to write a detailed review without giving things away, so I’ll just give my impressions.
Ethan is more likable in this book. He acts more and more, making his own choices, and not letting others dictate for him. He really took charge, and that boosted this book for me.
We also get a better look at the players this time around. Since Ethan is allowed to know the secret of the town, he gets a deeper look at how it’s run, how the people are controlled.
“There are no rights anymore. No laws. Just force and fear.”
I think the best part of this series so far is the “surprises”. Both big and small, they keep coming at you and keep the book moving at a wonderful pace.
And the ending… Crouch is lucky I have the 3rd book already, because I would be knocking on his door demanding answers otherwise. Insane, perfect cliffhanger. Book three is set up to be a heart-pumping horror-fest, and I can’t wait.
4 out of 5.
