Courtney Farrell’s second book in her double shot won the 2015 BTS Red Carpet Award in the YA division, and earned an Honorable Mention in that contest for Best Book of the Year.
Michelle and the group of friends that came together in Enhanced are sent off together by the Conclave from the Institute to repair the communications system at a remote military base known as Torr. The welcome they receive is anything but warm, and they are left on their own to secure the work site. Once Michelle is captured by the group of Norms rebelling in the area it becomes hard to tell whose side she should be on. Michelle is also torn between her feeling for Dillon and her former boyfriend, Brian. Is anything really as it seems?
Farrell’s second book in the Enhanced series, Sacrificed, is a fast paced, multi-dimensional dystopian novel wrapped around a teenage romance. This book is told from Michelle’s and Dillon’s point of view. There are many twists and subplots to keep it interesting. The main characters are continuing to develop and mature. Farrell is very good at making the reader question their original feelings about what is happening in this story. Nothing is black and white. Again, the characters are forced into making both moral and ethical choices.
I truly enjoyed this book. It kept my attention and was hard to put down. The teaser ending definitely hooks you into wanting to read the next in the series. There are a couple of contextual errors and a recurring plot issue that keep me from giving the book 5 stars. Even so, I would highly recommend this book. 4 out of 5 stars.
I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
