I was happy to receive this second book in the series of three. The first book told of how a village was taken into the Safe lands so that they can produce babies that are uninfected by the thin plague.
This book continues to tell you their story, they also find out that since they got their women out of the harem, that Jackson's Peak was invaded and they captured some men and women (that weren't killed in the fight).
We find out that they always try for the female to have more than one baby. We find out how many babies that Shaylinn (Shay) and who the father is, with the help of Mason's digging. This is a very inventive story set in the future and I believe a lot of people will enjoy reading this.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required to write a positive review.
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.
