Description

Uncovering the truth could cost them their lives.

Since entering the Safe Lands, Mason has focused on two things: finding a way to free his village from captivity, and finding a cure for the disease that ravages many within the walls of the Safe Lands. After immune-suppressive drugs go missing in the clinic, Mason discovers his coworker, Ciddah, may know more about the Safe Lands than imagined ... and may have an agenda of her own. At the same time, Mason's brother Levi is focused on a way to free the remaining Glenrock captives, while Mason's younger brother Omar decides to take the rebellion against the Safe Lands into his own hands as a vigilante.

Soon all three brothers are being watched closely---and when Mason stumbles onto a shocking secret about the Safe Lands meds, his investigation just might get those closest to him liberated.

Our customer reviews

(I received an ARC of Outcasts from the publisher, however, it does not influence my review and the following opinions are entirely my own.) Let me start by saying that I really enjoyed this book. In fact, I think it is even better than the first one in this series. Outcasts picks up where Captives left off, but the story and relationships get deeper in this book. There is a lot of character development (both good and bad) and we are better able to relate to and root for certain characters. We see the struggles and the triumphs that these “Outsiders” are facing by being forced to live in a society where temptation to live only for pleasure is constantly surrounding them. Because they are surrounded by people who have no sense of morality, the Outsiders struggle to cling to what they know is right and still follow their hearts. This leads them to discover that some of what they’ve been taught by their own people may not be entirely accurate. As they fight to cling to their roots and beliefs and to salvage their way of life, they also have to adjust to changes forced upon them by the Safe Lands. The Outsiders must learn how to deal with betrayal and we see a lot of new relationships budding as well as some heroes rising up. Also, secrets that the Safe Landers don’t want revealed are unraveling, showing the flaws in the structure of the society. The author has done an excellent job of keeping the story fresh, interesting, and entertaining in this book. I appreciate that instead of straying too far from the original story, she has instead chosen to go deeper with it. This is not always the case in Dystopian novels & I commend her for taking this route. If you are a fan of the Safe Lands series, you won’t be disappointed with this book!show more
