The Darkest Minds is quickly becoming one of my favorite book series. Alexandra Braken has created such an amazing world that really highlights the faults of society and the American government system. This second book made me fall in love with Ruby all over again and the love between Ruby and Liam. They have been through so much, yet they continue to remain strong for themselves and for all of those around them. Ruby as a character also developed a lot from the first book. She is a very strong and independent person who has to make so many difficult decisions, but she takes it all in strides.
Starting off, I was really disappointed with Ruby joining the Children's League and wiping Liam's memory. Everything became okay though when Liam got his memories back and I realized the intentions of the Children's League weren't so bad. I was glad that this allowed us to be introduced to her new gang of friends and Cole. Cole seems like a really interesting character with pent up anger. I really like Cole and it confused me so much cause I could see him and Ruby being a thing but I also like Ruby and Liam together.... Oh my conflicted shipper heart. Also the fact that he is a Red just blows my mind. Vida... I hated her with all of my guts in the beginning but she grew on me. Jude... god I loved that innocent and quirky kid. It pained me when he died. However, we saw the old gang including Chubs come back and that made me happy.
I was so glad to see Rob get killed off. They way he treated and killed those kids was sickening. I cannot believe adults would behave like that towards the children. It is not the children's fault that they are the way they are. And Clancy... oh I'm am so angry he lived. That little shit ruined everything.
Now that ending, I was so pissed President Gray didn't die and that he bombed LA. That just screwed up everything.
