Joseph, wake up, wake up, wake up…

She says it over and over. It’s her mantra, her prayer, her plea. But life doesn’t stop while he’s sleeping. With a newborn baby in her arms, Rosa’s thrown into a new world, with new rules and a philosophy that sounds too good to be true. She’s sure they didn’t rescue her out of the goodness of their hearts. The Survivors must want something in return.

The Wall finds Rosa eagerly entering a new life, yet struggling to keep the demons and ghosts of the past from dragging her backwards. She’s left so many people behind.

There’s freedom in the Survivors’ world, more than she’d ever dreamed of, but there’s also secrets. The darkest of which pulls Rosa headfirst into a trauma, forcing her to reevaluate her past and pushing her to make a choice that threatens to destroy the tenuous, sewn-together family she’s built on the outside.

***Melanie, #NerdGirlVamp’s Review***

This is the second book in “The Woodlands” series and having read the first the cliffhanger was such that I had to read this one as soon as possible.

If you enjoyed the first one then you won’t believe all the adventure that is packed into book 2. The only bad part is that you get to the end … and you guessed it … another cliffhanger! Even worse I thought that this was part 2 of a 3 part series (with part 3 set to come out at the end of this month) and I have JUST discovered that there will be 4 parts.

Part of me is excited by this. Lauren Taylor is a skilled writer and despite my not really being a fan of dystopian style novels this series has me hooked and I find myself totally lost in this world so the fact that it will continue longer is really a good thing. There is certainly plenty more story to learn about. The other part of me, the part that DESPISES cliffhangers is definitely not so amused.

The characters develop a lot more in this second installment and we get a great insight into a whole new set of people … “The Survivors”. Sometimes with a sequel, especially when the situations have changed so much I find myself disappointed in the direction the book is heading in. Not here! If you loved book 1 you will adore book 2. If you haven’t read book 1 yet … YOU SHOULD!!
