    It's time to head back to Westfall. The Key Corp has kept everyone safe from the Cerberus virus these last fifty years, but that isn't all they have been up to........ Aiden and Elodie escaped the Key Corp and are now on their own in Zone 7 searching for the resistance group New Dawn. They hope to be able to join the group and work with them to fight for a new world. One where everyone can make their own future, without the interference of the Key Corp. However, Zone 7 isn't all that it appears It's time to head back to Westfall. The Key Corp has kept everyone safe from the Cerberus virus these last fifty years, but that isn't all they have been up to........ Aiden and Elodie escaped the Key Corp and are now on their own in Zone 7 searching for the resistance group New Dawn. They hope to be able to join the group and work with them to fight for a new world. One where everyone can make their own future, without the interference of the Key Corp. However, Zone 7 isn't all that it appears to be, and Elodie and Aiden must quickly learn who they can trust and what is real and what is not. Zone 7 teaches them more about who they both are, and what the true cost of the freedom they seek will be. So, I take back a lot of the things I said in my review of The Key to Fear about the writing being generic tropes for the genre. This book was nothing like that. I felt like this was a rare case where book 2 was actually better than book 1. Cast really picked things up with this book. I liked this book SO MUCH more than Book 1. The multiple POV continues in this book. We get perspectives from Aiden, Elodie, Blair, and several other characters. This book also goes into a lot more detail on all the dirty details that The Key has been up to over the last fifty years. I won't spill all the details here as I don't want to spoil anything for those who will want to read this one. Rest assured, they have been up to some nasty stuff, which I'm sure will surprise absolutely no one. We don't just get more detail on The Key in this book however, we get a lot more detail on Aiden, Elodie, Blair, and even some new characters. So much character development happens in this book, especially in the first third. It is also revealed that a few characters are not quite as they appeared in the first book. Then, right around the time you feel settled in what is happening in the book, Cast pulls the rug out from under your feet. BOOM! Plot twist! I won't give it away, but it was pretty big, and I was both shocked and impressed with it. Overall, the plot sticks to what was set up in the first book- The Key Corp has protected humanity from the Cerberus virus, and also has some nefarious dealings behind the scenes. Aiden and Elodie are still fighting alongside Eos trying to free humanity from under the thumb of The Key. This time they are joined by some unlikely allies who have also had their eyes opened to what The Key truly is. The undercurrent of feminism returns to this book as well. This brought with it a fresh round of fantastic feminist quotes, such as, "For every strong woman, there was a man who desired her for no reason." I really enjoyed this theme in the first book, and I was glad that this book included it too. The pacing of this book was great, it kept a nice steady pace until about the last third, then it really ramped up which felt just right. I can't think of a spot where it felt slow or draggy at all. In reading these two books I have really come to like Cast's writing style. I will definitely be checking out her other books, which are hopefully just as good. This book was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. I laughed, and I cried. There are definitely some openings in the ending for a third book, which I am hoping will be coming in the future. I looked at the author's website and socials, and didn't see any info on a 3rd book, so fingers crossed it's coming because I have questions! I didn't think these were plot holes, they felt more like openings for more story in the future. Elodie wasn't a strong main character in the first book, but in the second she has definitely evolved to be a strong main character. She doesn't lean as heavily on others, and is far more self-reliant. I think that learning the truth about The Key, and everything she experienced in the first book really forced her to be a bit more grown up. Meanwhile, Aiden has learned from his mistakes in the first book, and is working at being a bit less impulsive and thinking his actions through a bit more. One thing that I did find interesting in this book is how the language changed from the first book. The Key to Fear was published in October of 2020. In it, when talking about how people tried to keep their distance from one another, the author never used the term "social distancing", which we are all painfully familiar with at this point. However, in The Key to Fury, she mentions social distiancing, and a few other pandemic related terms that weren't present in the first book. I found it interesting to see how the actual pandemic that we all have been living through influenced how she wrote about the fictional pandemic in Westfall. I definitely would recommend this book, it was so much better than I thought it would be. The series on a whole, I think is also great. Looking back at The Key to Fear, with the knowledge that I have now, what felt generic and like standard tropes, really more reflects the naivete that Elodie has about the world around her. She is blind to The Key and what they are doing to society, she has no idea what is truly going on in the world, and the style of writing reflects that. In The Key to Fury, she knows the truth, and has grown up significantly and the change in writing reflects that. I really like how they come together in this way. There were also several twists and reveals that I didn't see coming at all, The Key was up to way more than I thought they were. I love it when a book can surprise me in this way, so many times I am able to see what is coming from a mile away, and that just takes all the fun out of it. If you like YA books, dystopia, sci-fi, or just want to try something different, definitely give these a read. Just remember- After the storm comes the dawn.

    I received an ARC of this title from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and were not affected by the free copy. I was really excited for this book, so the moment I found it available on NetGalley, I requested an ARC. While the book was fine, it didn't live up to my hopes. First off, trigger warnings included by the author: sexual assault and suicidal thoughts. I would like to include one of my own, I wish I had known about it going in: Stalking.

I was really excited for this book, so the moment I found it available on NetGalley, I requested an ARC. While the book was fine, it didn't live up to my hopes. First off, trigger warnings included by the author: sexual assault and suicidal thoughts. I would like to include one of my own, I wish I had known about it going in: Stalking. And what makes it worse, is that the author includes chapters from the point of view of the stalker. I wish I had known about this going in, I would have been more mentally prepared to handle it. Moving on. The pacing was a bit weird-it's meant to be, show the characters going through something specific (I can't say more than that without spoilers) but it still threw me for a loop. The insta-love is still strong (even with other characters!) and there is little growth, except for surprisingly, Elodie. She finally, FINALLY, makes a choice for herself-kind of-one chapter for the end, and then literally the choice was taken from her. So that was fun. Technically, everything was sort of wrapped up, and yet I can't remember what changes society was going to make. I literally finished this book 2 days ago. That's a bit sad. So while part of me wants a third book, I don't know if I would actually read it.

    For fifty years, the Key Corporation has kept the pandemic from returning. Elodie and Aiden have learned that there is more to the Key Corporation than what the public knows and they are on the run and hope to find New Dawn. The Eos resistance movement says they are working towards a better world, but are they just another group of people who hunger for power? Who can these two young people trust? What other truths will they learn along the way? The Key to Fury is the second book in The Key serie For fifty years, the Key Corporation has kept the pandemic from returning. Elodie and Aiden have learned that there is more to the Key Corporation than what the public knows and they are on the run and hope to find New Dawn. The Eos resistance movement says they are working towards a better world, but are they just another group of people who hunger for power? Who can these two young people trust? What other truths will they learn along the way? The Key to Fury is the second book in The Key series. I want to start by saying that I enjoyed the first book, but was disappointed with this story. The overall feel was formulaic and I wanted something unexpected. Readers do learn more about these characters and the world they live in, so there is a chance that the next volume will redeem the series. I will give the series another chance if Cast decides to extend it.

    Okay a little better than the first book, but really, I'm disappointed. I wanted to love these books because of how much I loved her other writings. Elodie is finally more rebellious. She finally see's the Key isn't exactly what she thought it was, she doesn't have to marry a man that a system match her with. She kissed Aiden and nothing bad has happened to her (health wise), and now she determined to start a new path. Aiden had Elodie and is happy, at least he was until Elodie's best friend saw Okay a little better than the first book, but really, I'm disappointed.

Aiden had Elodie and is happy, at least he was until Elodie's best friend saw them kiss and well things just went down hill. His mother is gone, I swear his sister has no soul at all and Elodie's ex-fiance still wants to make things work with her so there's that too. I was really upset with what happens to Aiden in the book, it really shouldn't have happened but ugh. Overall, I just really don't know. It's not what I expected this series to be, though this book is better than the first, but I wouldn't say its better by much sadly.
