In the second book of The Loop trilogy, Luka is trapped in a fate worse than death. But now that he knows the truth about what he and his fellow inmates are being used for, it's more important than ever that he not only escapes but that he builds an army.
Luka is a prisoner once again. But this time, it's a fate worse than death. In the Block, he must toggle between enduring an Energy Harvest for 12 hours of the day and surviving complete immobilization. The only semblance of relief is the Sane Zone, created to keep prisoners from going completely mad. In this virtual reality, the prisoners live out their fantasies of life outside. But for Luka, it's different.
Happy is determined to find out the location of his friends, who disappeared after the Battle of Midway Park. But can Luka battle the descent into madness long enough to stop Happy's manipulation tactics and keep his friends' location safe?
Another prison break is the only chance to protect the Missing. And as reality becomes increasingly scrambled on the outside, it'll take an army to stop Galen from carrying out his plans.

A Good Story; Looking Forward to Book Three
I hesitated to purchase this book initially because the audiiobook only received 3 stars but the book edition on Amazon and Goodreads were over 4 stars. It is the middle book of a trilogy so it is pretty bleak, especially at the end, but I really want to see how the author intends to turn that around in the final book of the trilogy.
There was plenty of action especially during the first 1/2 of the story. It slowed down a little during the "Purgatory" scenes, but it ramped up again at the end. Luka does drive me crazy with his constant self-sacrificing, but isn't that true of many of the heroes and heroines in dystopian fiction? The author definitely has a social agenda but the same can be said of most authors of dystopian fiction.
Overall the book gave me seven good hours of solid entertainment and it makes me eager to read the final book when it comes out. I definitely think the story and performance deserve at least 4 stars.
