We left Alex and co. escaping at the end of Lockdown, but it doesn't stay that way for long. There wouldn't be a book two if everything was all sunshine and roses, now would there?
I'm not going to lie, it seems a bit like nothing happens throughout the whole book. BUT, I only felt that way after finishing. While I was reading I was too busy flipping pages to find out what would come next to worry about the fact that Alex spent fortyish percent of the story in a hole.
Solitary brings us just a little deeper into the mysterious backstory. We learn a bit more about the blacksuits, discover secret allies, and learn something a little bit shocking about the Warden.
The Nutshell: I'd say I probably enjoyed this one just as much as the first. I was still hanging on the edge of my seat flipping pages while simultaneously trying to keep my adrenaline in check which was one of the things I truly loved about Lockdown. I already have the third book in at the library and will probably be getting to it within the next few weeks! (I'm a slow reader, guys, so that actually is rather soon...)
