Breaking Point (Article 5 #2)
After faking their deaths to escape from prison, Ember Miller and Chase Jennings have only one goal: to lay low until the Federal Bureau of Reformation forgets they ever existed.
Near-celebrities now for the increasingly sensationalized tales of their struggles with the government, Ember an...more

I love these books if you can't tell. I love the settings and the writing and the drama and action and I love the characters. Ember has a tendency to...annoy me at parts. But I love Chase of course and I love all the other characters as well.
I wasn't a fan of the first book (Article 5), it was mediocre at best but being the kind hearted person that I am, I thought I'd give Breaking Point a chance. Sadly, my kindness didn't pay off. I had to suffer through cookie cutter characters, rubbish worldbuilding and an extremely lame plot. It was traumatic. Okay, it wasn't traumatic but it was boring.

Ember Miller and Chase Jennings barely survived their staged deaths. Having found shelter in a hub for a group of rebels, Ember would rather stay hidden and be forgotten. But with a sniper on the loose picking off soldiers one at a time, the FBR needed someone to take the fall. And so the legend of the girl who escaped Rehabilitation and prison begins. With a shoot-to-kill order on her head, the Resistance found a face to launch their attac...more
"I wondered if he'd really done everything he could possibly could- everything I would have done. Thoughts like this led me nowhere, of course, and only made it harder to be close to him. He was both the cause of my pain and the cure."

For the last year I’ve been highly awaiting Breaking Point, Kristen Simmon’s sequel to Article 5 and I’m so pleased to say what a spectacular sequel it is.

Breaking Point is a thrilling sequel, every page vibrating with tension on both physical and emotional levels as Chase and Ember take up the fight of the Resistance. This is a story we close the back cover on with our guts roiling and clashing due to the myriad of conflicting emotions, refusing to settle even though we’ve exited Ember’s brutal world of chaos and compliance and returned to the safety of our reality. Ms. Simmons makes the most of every single page in this lengthy tale...more

Kristen Simmons' Article 5 was one of my first dystopian novels. It was bleak, dark and left me emotionally scarred. I was a little hesitant to start the second installment of the series in fear of it suffering from middle book syndrome, but Breaking Point turned out to be even better than the first book and it's like Kristen Simmons doesn't even know what middle-book syndrome is.
Both main characters, Ember and Chase, went through hell in the first boo...more
For one thing, Simmons' series actually belongs under the heading of a dystopia. As long as the people follow the rules of the lawmakers, the society is perfect,...more
I have no idea why it took me so much to write this review. I have read this book a while ago and it really was a great read I just needed some time to put my words together so here we go.
Article 5 was one of the books that I really enjoyed. Last year was time of dystopia explosion and with all new concepts and stories I was in heaven but now with sequels I can divide those that were really amazing and those that were forgettable. This one goes into the fir...more

Rating: 4.7 stars
I started this series and then deleted my account later so my earlier review for Article 5 for private reasons and then Breaking Point came out. *sigh..* my Love! :)) Breaking Point did not disappoint me at all and was amazing! The characters were hard-core and didn't change drastically from the first book. And thank God, THERE WAS NO INTRODUCED 2ND LOVE INTEREST!!! I love you! The part with Rebecca though, it made me d...more
I loved this book and the dark world that Simmons created. While I never want to be part of it myself, I love immersing myself in its depths and losing myself to Ember and Chase's story. I have to say that this book was sadder than book one. There's more death, more desperation, little lig...more
*There will possibly be spoilers from the first book in this review*
Things pick up right where we left off in Article 5, but things have gotten even more dangerous for Ember. There is a sniper out there that has been picking o...more
The main thing that gets me so hooked with this series is the characters. Ember and Chase are so well written that I feel what they feel, and I deal with what they are dealing with. Even the secondary characters are fleshed out perfectly! Ember and Chase have been through a lot, a...more

„Alles Furchtbare, das die MM uns angetan hatte, basierte darauf, dass wir zusammengehalten hatten – seine grausamen Kämpfe in der Grundausbildung, die Revision, bei der meine Mutter wegen eines Verstoßes gegen Artikel 5 verhaftet worden war, die Flucht aus der Basis – all das nur, weil wir nicht voneinander hatten lassen wollen. Diese Tatsache war mir bewusster als je zuvor. Blieben wir weiter zusammen, würden wir einander den Tod bringen.“
„Nie zuvor hatte sich die Grenze zwischen...more
Ember is still the worst character ever. It really feels like she's a fake Katniss, but even though Katniss is tough to like sometimes, her reasoning makes sense and she's actually smart/good at what she does. Ember is just... not. But she ju...more
