Synopses & Reviews
The sequel to No Safety in Numbers;
a modern day Lord of the Flies
for fans of apocalyptic thrillers.
It's Day 7 in the quarantined mall. The riot is over and the senator trapped inside is determined to end the chaos. Even with new rules, assigned jobs, and heightened security, she still needs to get the teen population under control. So she enlists Marco's help — allowing him to keep his stolen universal card key in exchange for spying on the very football players who are protecting him.
But someone is working against the new systems, targeting the teens, and putting the entire mall in even more danger. Lexi, Marco, Ryan, and Shay believe their new alliances are sound.
They are wrong. Who can be trusted? And who will be left to trust?
The virus was just the beginning.
"Think of the heart-racing chase of The Hunger Games but a giant mall is your arena and everyone is potentially a tribute."
"Engrossing...A whopping and disturbing cliffhanger serves as the conclusion. Readers will anxiously await the sequel."
"Foreshadowing and vivid staging build a sense of claustrophobia and desperation...readers will eagerly await the next installment."
