SciFi Book Review: The Capture

The Capture by Tom Isbell

Synopsis:
Fifteen escaped and found their way to freedom, but Book, Hope, and Cat can’t settle into their new life knowing the rest of the Less Thans and Sisters are still imprisoned. Now the teens must retrace their steps to save the others and thwart the Republic’s dark plans to destroy those deemed different, even as relationships are tested and the path back is filled with danger.

With new enemies lurking, the group must put their fate into the hands of unexpected allies and must ask themselves how far they’re willing to go to free their friends.

Review:
I was afraid that this sequel would be somewhat of a repeat of the last book – starting all over again, trying to free everyone else. Instead, Book and Hope will face traitors, insurrection, new adversaries, and possible new allies. With the odds against them, I found myself rooting for ever-determined Book the entire journey.

The Capture is a fantastic sequel that may be more exciting than the first. Silly drama between Book and Hope threatens their relationship, because of immaturity on her part. But otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed this story of non-stop, thrilling suspense and big reveals. With plenty of heartbreak there remains a feeling of hope (no pun intended), together with Book’s perseverance make for an inspired read. The next in the series can’t come soon enough.
