    The second book of the virus series was definitely a little more interesting as it had a lot more action in it. It was still a little short for my taste and I can't help but wonder why the author did not just combine this story into one longer novel.I was excited yet dreading the long journey that Elaan, Elijah and Josh would have to take but am glad that the journey was shortened yet still had some excitement in it. I'm glad that author decided against drawing out the journey and wanted to focus more on the other aspects of the book.I did feel like we got a little too much of a 'review' of things that had already happened in the book. Like the anger that Lijah has against his mother- we already knew what had happened... and we had it explained and thought about a few times so I did think that making the mother reiterate the story the author should have left it alone and let something else come to light.The author did a good job of building this apocalyptic world up a bit more in this second book. We get to see a little more of the outside world and what this terrible virus has really done. Of course we heard the terrors of it but we did not get a chance until now to see it firsthand...and let's face it it was a lot worse than Elaan thought. I'm enjoying exploring this world.Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley and the publishers in exchange for an honest review.

    After the events of concealed, I couldn't wait to get into Exposed as soon as I could. This story immediately picks up where the events of the first left off so it is really easy to see how the characters have progressed through the first novel into the second. I really loved Elaan and Josh although at times I was really confused about their actual ages as they seem far more mature than anyone else their age. There are also several new characters introduced in Exposed and we can see that every characters personality traits play into the overall plot so no one seems useless or surplus to requirement. There are many things revealed about the characters that to an extent provide answers to the questions that popped up while reading Concealed. The plot also advances in ways I didn't expect. while Concealed dealt with a lot of science Exposed focused more on the humanity of the situations and the characters reactions to different situations which I enjoyed immensely although I felt the scientific elements where needed and they were majorly underplayed in Exposed. Now the problem with any series of books is that some books can suffer from middle book syndrome which Exposed, unfortunately, does as there are massive chunks in the middle of the novel where literally nothing happens and after the action-packed fast-paced first book I was a little disappointed. Overall though, I found Exposed to be a decent sequel to Concealed, despite the middle book syndrome Exposed has mountains of character developed and the plot gains a much better footing to ready us the reader for the final novel Contained. This series is rather enjoyable but it does have its faults. For fans of the dystopian genre, I would really recommend Concealed and Exposed. I can't wait to see how this series ends in Contained.

    (I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.) My review of the first book (Concealed) can be found here.BLURBThe safety of the underground bunker is left behind. Elaan and her friends are out in the open, exposed to the world above. Exposed to a world that has been ravished by the virus. Can they make it to the one person they've been told can provide them safety? CHARACTERS The story picks up immediately after the events of the first books and it is easy to see the character development through the book. I liked the main characters Elaan and Josh though at times they seemed so mature I kept getting confused about their age! New characters are introduced in this book and in a way everyone's personality traits play a big role in plot development. There are many things revealed about the characters that to an extent provide answers to the questions that popped up while reading Concealed.PLOT Concealed dealt more with science while Exposed deals more with human character and people's reactions to different circumstances. Most of the story goes into the journey of the main characters. The starting chapters of Exposed are fast and set the tone of the story. The story once again ends with new revelations, questions and a cliffhanger. While I thoroughly enjoyed the beginning and the end there were parts in the middle where nothing much seemed to be happening. But the story gives a very realistic idea of how people can change during the time of disasters that I found really interesting. The entire environment of Exposed is darker than Concealed. WRITING As with the first book, the imagery is quite clear and I really liked the descriptions that helped me visualize the whole story in my head.WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK - The characters- The plot- The writing WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK - The parts in the middle where there wasn't much happening WILL I BE READING THE LAST BOOK OF THE TRILOGY? Of course! There are so many questions and doubts I need answers to! CONCLUSION A really good sequel to Concealed. The character development and plot-line gain a better footing in Exposed. Quite an enjoyable story!( For more reviews Check out my blog - Books.Bags.Burgers)

    Following the three teen main characters as they decipher coded letters, reveal the truth behind certain lies they have been told. There's also lots more to be well as maybe learning what is going on at the scientist protection complex? Did the General ever return? How have those inside survived with no food deliveries from 'up top'? Have Dr James Woodson and Dr Kingston Wells made a vaccine yet? Or a cure for the infected? As well as have they unearthed something to undo the hormonal/biological damage they did to their own sons with an vaccine that was still in the experimental and unproven state?Are the government still after Elijah, Elaan and Josh? or do they have bigger problems with the rumours of the military made into carriers?

    Now that the kids are out, they have to learn how to survive in the real world, with the brink of the disease possibly around every corner. Not sure who they can trust and who not to trust in this new world, until they make it to a safe house with people they know. All was going well for them, in hiding, until they find out they were being tracked. So they had to get out, and get somewhere safe. But where was that going to be?This book had a great start, with lots of action happening, but then it slowed down for way too long, in my opinion. It finally did pick up a bit, but not enough, causing me to not thoroughly enjoy it. I think it was the lack of descriptions in certain areas where it just seemed a bit too vague to me too. It happened too often. I want my descriptions! And the whole constant battle with hating the mother because of her lie seemed quite pathetic after a while. First of all, the mother always lived with telling the truth, so by telling one lie for a enormously good reason, didn't seem like the kids would act that way about her. I personally would've forgiven her after the first initial realization that it was a lie. She had the best reasons behind it. And the fact that they kept bringing it up, bugged me. Other than that though, the characters did start to grow on me, and I was liking Elaan and Josh together more and more as the story went on. I just wish I had gotten more from it.This book was given to me in order for me to read it and give my complete honest review. And that's exactly what I did. I hope others will give this book a shot and be able to enjoy it, regardless of the criticism I gave it!

    The story centers around 3 teenagers; brother and sister Lijah and Elaan and their friend Josh. After the world is plagued by a deadly virus, their mothers are now dead and their scientist fathers are desperately trying to save the world in a now post-apocolyptan planet.I love any dystopian/speculative fiction, it's definitely my go to genre. Be it zombies, robots, virus or natural disaster I am their with a front row seat and this series didn't disappoint.With the world in pieces and the select few survivors being immune or carriers the friend must travel across the country to try and save themselves.To cut a lengthy review short the series was a great choppy dystopian read. With each book being about 200 pages long part of me felt it could be condensed into one large book or expanded into 3 much bigger reads.I found that all the books lacked a massive amount of world building. In fact, there was next to no world building. But there was huge amounts of inner monologue from Elaain... too much. I just wished that the massive chunks of book taken up by Elaain's rambeling thoughts had been used to create a better picture of the world. As the series went on I began to find Elaain more and more annoying. So there were certian occasions where I too would of been asking questions just not continually and constantly the whole way through.However, it was nice to see 3 main'ish characters for a refreshing change, and I like that fact that the whole storyline wasn't taken over by a soppy love story.As a side note, Lijah's storyline about his sexuality was a non issue.In summary it's a great series for any dystopian lover. They are choppy, exciting, fast paced easy reads.

    Elijah “Lijah”, his sister Elaan Grace & Josh were riding the train along with Boxcar Willie (old pervert).Lijah & Elaan had left the scientific housing place. Josh liked Elaan (aka Priya) but so did Lijah. Mark Dayton had caused a worldwide pandamic. He had died or been killed. What was the Martial Law all about?The 3 had finally split from Boxcar Willie.Next stop hopefully is Dahinda, IL.Empty houses, abandoned buildings, deserted towns, & bodies wherever they went. The PPL who were still surviving just seemed to stare at the 3.Lijah was now missing.For now it was just Josh Wells & Elaan (17) trying not to become a carrier of the deadly viris.Warning: This book contains extremely graphic adult content, violence, or expletive language &/or uncensored sexually explicit material which is only suitable for mature readers. It may be offensive to some readers. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one. All thoughts & opinions are entirely my own.A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A failry well written YA Dystopian book. It wasn’t always very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish, but never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great YA Dystopian movie, animated cartoon, or a mini TV series. This has great potential. Not as exciting as I like them so I will rate it at 4/5 stars.

    This is a smooth continuation from the first book in this series, Concealed. I've really enjoyed getting to know these characters and the situations they go through to continue their journey. They have gotten to the point where they need to look for answers concerning the virus and what the situation is as far as how they can survive. How many people are left? Is the virus still spreading? Is everyone going to keep to themselves, as in every man for himself, or band together in any way? I am looking forward to the next book in this series. BRAVO!

    I got a copy of the ARC and my review is based on that version. I found the story slowed by excessive detail and the main characters' language too formal for their age groups in some cases. I also have doubts about whether the solution for the virus hinted at would work in real life. I know this is fiction, but when dealing with medicine in a current-day setting, I feel the solution should work according to current-day medical understanding.

    Good second entry in the series. This is a story for young adults. I think I am going for stories that are aimed more at adults but I did enjoy this story and am starting the third one in the series. If you read the first one you will definitely want to continue the story in this one. They are on a mission to find her mother who can help them.

    Gotta know...Only one more book and I'll be able to learn how things end. The only problem I had with this one is that it seemed way shorter than the first one.

    Good ReadingI love the premise of the almost apocalyptic story. I say almost because there is a glimmer of hope in this series

    I was kind of disappointed in this trilogy... hoping for more action and less "drama", alas, ''twas not to be...
