Live free or die . . .
Chicago is burning, a rebellion rises, but that’s the least of Carrie’s concerns. Patrolman Simmons is assigned new partners who threaten the security and secrecy of Carrie's clan. Tensions are high, lines are drawn, and Carrie feels a wedge growing between her and Greg.
Haunted by past mistakes and impending tragedies, Greg knows he should distance himself from Carrie. He knows he should let her love the patrolman who can save her and her siblings, especially with money and resources dwindling. But knowing and doing are different matters. He's busy hatching a plan to salvage things when his citizenship backfires, and he’s asked to do the unthinkable. In this stunning follow-up to Life, loved ones are lost, allegiances are tested, and old enemies plot revenge. At every turn, the citizens of Logan Pond must ask:
What price would you pay for the liberty of those you love?
CITIZENS OF LOGAN POND (Life, Liberty, The Pursuit) is a dystopian romance trilogy set in the not-too-distant future. "A piece that should be required reading for young and old alike."- In D'tale Magazine
I love dystopia and this series is fantastic!! This is the second book in the series and you really need to read the first book to understand what's happening. (You can read more about the first book and my review here). These scenarios are realistic. Carrie lives in a clan which is hiding from the government. There are only a few legal residents among them. The group works together and have already gotten out of some sticky situations. In this book, the hits keep coming. There were times I was nervous for them and wondered what direction this book was possibly going to take.
I love Greg and Carrie and watching their relationship develop. I also grew to love Oliver more, too. He's a patrolman that watches out for her clan. We learn more about the sacrifices he's made to keep them safe and the lengths he will go to in order to help Carrie. I've enjoyed getting to know the citizens of Logan Pond and am glad that there's more to their story.
This book ends on a cliffhanger and involves a character that scares me. I was ready to start in on the final book right away, but it won't be out until August 15th and yes, I've already pre-ordered my copy. If you enjoy dystopia, this is a must-read series!!
