Liana Castell's journey continues in the breathtaking second book of the best-selling The Girl Who Dared to Think series.

After stumbling upon an ancient, dusty office sealed away from the rest of the Tower, Liana makes a shocking discovery. Her first instinct is to flee - until she realizes all is not what it seems.

The room has been hidden for a reason. It holds secrets about the Tower's past and answers that could be key to her people's future. But with this knowledge comes grave danger, as Liana will quickly discover....

Return to the Tower in another hair-raising adventure.

ups and downs

towards the end I started to struggle to follow the story as a dyslexic. Apart from that I found it really engaging and couldn't stop listening staying up later each night to hear a bit more.

Still want more from this series

I seem to be becoming a firm Bella Forrest fan.

I like the pace of the books, characters and narration. Keep them coming as I'm really enjoying bingeing on series when time allows.

Enjoyed book 1 much more than this one

Found this book long and the story lines drawn out. I was glad to get to the end just to finish it and may not bother with book 3 when it comes out. Overall disappointed.

Good story but overwritten

The storyline was enjoyable, but way too much inner monologue focus overdone descriptions of Liana’s feelings.

Another thrilling segment of the story!

This series is amazing! Similar to her other series, The Gender Game, it is action packed and thoughtful. My only complaint would be the cliffhangers and having to wait for the next book!!

give the characters a chance to grow

I've read both series now and I'm getting a little frustrated with the author. the depth of characters is very shallow as she rinses and renews characters over and over. there is little too no growth nor depth to any of the characters. there are complete chapters on neurotic uncertainties of the characters and AIs.

the world can be falling apart, action can be everywhere around the heroes, and everyone is one step away from their demise... Let's talk about feelings and uncertainties, instead of focusing on the scene and letting it play out. <sigh>

I guess I'm just not connecting with the author.

Frustrating!

After the first book I vowed I wouldn’t go further. Then after a tiresome search for a new book, I finally succumbed and listened to the second book in the series. It’s frustrating because it is just good enough for me to want to listen to the third book to find out what happens, but I know that listening to it will annoy me 75% of the time. Both books have too much detail where detail wasn’t needed and not enough when it was. Parts dragged on...and on...and on...and the questions! About 50% of the book is of the heroine asking herself inane questions. As other reviewers have noted, the narrator was slightly better in this book than the last, but still not great, especially when compared to some other A+ narrators on audible. Yet.....I know I’m going to be hitting that button to download the third book. The books are like a bag of bad potato chips....not that great, and you regret eating the ones you have, yet you find yourself irrationally reaching for another even though everything inside you tells you not to do it. My advice is not to buy the bag of potato chips in the first place. Don’t be me! Don’t get sucked in!

enthralling

Just like the first book, this one sucked me in and I lost track of time. Liana is a great character and I enjoyed the developments in the story. I look forward to book 3.

Too wordy

I found myself a lot of the times skipping parts because it included too much detail. And telling the heroine that if she would stop thinking about the color of the sky or whatever, she might be able to achieve her goal.

Intriguing Storyline

A nice twist on the dystopian future. Enough intrigue and adventure to keep this story moving along at a good pace.
