Recommends it for: EVERYONE!!
A few days ago, I posted a review of Book 1 of Evan Angler's series, Swipe. In that review, I mentioned many reasons why I fell in love with this series, including a return to classic dystopian elements and high action and suspense. But I haven't discussed the biggest reason I respect Evan Angler's amazing series - the world.

Many dystopian tales deal with oppressive governments, the country in shambles, and the people living in squalid conditions. As entertaining it is to read about such circums

I liked this book better than book one. Now that the story is unfolding, it's keeping my attention better. I plan on finishing the series. Hopefully, it will keep getting better. :)

Clean rating: I believe there was some brief violence.

About this book:

“When Logan Langly backed out of getting the Mark and went on the run, no one thought he could survive on his own. Without the Mark, you can't buy food, go to the doctor, or use a tablet--you aren't even a citizen.
But when he discovers that his sister is being held in a mysterious hidden prison named Acheron, Logan risks everything to travel through an underground network of the Markless to rescue her.
Logan arrives only to find that Acheron holds more secrets than anyone could

When I finished Swipe earlier this year, I can remember very clearly turning the last page and thinking "NO! It can't possibly be over!" So when I got the tour invite for Sneak, I jumped at the opportunity. Evan Angler has put together a strong dystopian world unlike any I have read before. What is so fascinating to me about the world of The Swipe Series is that it's not a typical dystopia where people's rights were forcefully taken from them agai

What it's about: Logan is back and he is still on the run from DOME. Peck and the Dust are still out there, trying to find out about where Lily is being kept. Erin is missing Logan and desperate to find out where he is. The journey continues with the Markless against DOME and all the secrets hidden along the way.

What I thought: I couldn't wait to start reading Sneak ever since I got my hands on my copy. I thoroughly enjoyed Swipe and couldn't wait to see where this sequel was going to take me an

I listened to the first book of the series, Swipe, on audiobook last year sometime. It kept hanging around in the back of my head so I picked up the second in the series and I'm glad I did. I finished it in no time.

Genre: YA dystopian

Worldview: Christian

Pros: The story. I didn't realize it when I read the first book (I guess I'm clueless), but this is actually based on Revelation. The good thing is that the references are subtle (obviously). What better set up for a dystopian novel? I'm interest
This action-paced, adventure-filled, energetic (can books be energetic?) second novel in the Swipe series was full of bounding action and energy from the first sentence to the last. Never is there a dull moment or a boring scene. There’s always more happening and more mysteries to unravel, at all times. I really enjoyed it and it does not disappoint!

This author is truly talented. Though there are countless characters, scenes, clues, and other things to remember at all times, it never once felt c

It's a good thing that I read the first book or I'm not sure I would have understood what all was going on as we revisit Logan and his friends in Sneak.

Logan has thus far avoided the Mark - just barely. In this dystopic society where everything seems perfect for those Marked by the government, evil and corruption lies just underneath all this talk of unity and peace. Logan escaped it in book one and this book picks right up where we left off last time, as the race continues to not only stay out

You might not want to read any further into this review because I am afraid I can't avoid spoilers anymore! Being so vague all the time is too taxing.

I did not realize until halfway through Sneak that Swipe is a Christian Fiction series. I am not used to religions being specified in books so it caught me off guard when I discovered that the banned book Logan was carrying around is the Bible. I thought it was very interesting how the whole idea of faith was abso

What would you do if one day, on your thirteenth birthday, you were basically forced to get a Mark - a tattoo on your wrist - that gave you basic rights as a citizen? That's what happens in 'Sneak', the second book in the Swipe series, which follows a group of teens during what appears to be the apocalypse. Logan's thirteenth birthday has come and gone and since fighting back against the government and refusing to receive his Mark - he's on the run. Logan finds out that his older sister Lily, wh ...more

Review on my blog (to be posted 4/10):

Sneak was a great continuation to the Swipe series! I enjoyed the book even more than Swipe, book one, which I had read last year. I loved the whole aspect of the symbols and the River (won't say anything else, except I thought it was really cool).

The characters were nice and, while I don't think any of them are favorites, I pretty much liked all of them. I was
This is truly a classic dystopian series dealing with real humans who have made a choice to join the masses, becoming a cog in a huge machine and receive 'the Mark' or to stand up for the freedom to be an individual, making right or wrong decisions on their own, suffering the repercussions if need be.

Book two in the Swipe Series takes us through Logan's run for freedom and his search to find Acheron, a prison for the markless filled with horrors beyond comprehension where his sister, Lily, taken
As dystopians go, Sneak doesn't have the most original or unusual of premises, but there's still quite a bit to like, some really good supporting characters, quite a few unexpected twists to the story, but most of all Angler's no nonsense approach to storytelling. I enjoyed this book, even if there's nothing I really haven't seen before. And it's a pretty good sequel to Swipe.

The plot as a whole plays out as I expected, Logan and his friends on the run from the government, trying to rally the Ma

It has been a month since Logan has escaped his marking. DOME has been clearing out all of the Markless in an attempt to find Logan. He's managed to stay one step ahead of them so far. Logan is making his way to Beacon where he hopes to find Acheron, a prison that may not exist, and to find his sister who may not even be alive.

Wow. Book one was good. Intrigueing and exciting situations. Book two is better. I entered the story on page one and every page after that. I got to know the characters even better, they really came alive, and their stuggles and mission was something I latched onto. Believable in ever sense, characters, the future world, the govenment, everything. The Christian elements that also came out of this dystopia was perfectly done.

Awesome Book!

Definitely a good read with a positive focus on God as the ultimate one to worship, despite what the world may offer.

This just hit one of my favourites list!

Great writing too!
I felt that the author grew in his writing and really brought the story to life; making it believable and real to the reader-as if you were in the story right along with Logan, or Bridget, in their own separate situations.

From the first few pages, Sneak rocked. There was just so much excitement and danger from the start that I was immediately pulled in. And I hadn't even gotten to a part about Logan yet!

I enjoyed the story line of this book better than Swipe. It mainly stems from the fact, I've learned about the dystopian society in the books, so I can look past that and get into the story. Also, it was much more dangerous than the first book. There is little that goes on in this book where the Dust are not put i

This book was much better than the first! However, there were still several things - small things - that didn't make sense and brought the overall story down. For instance, the writing is still choppy and just plain uninteresting at times. I also didn't think it was realistic for several of the characters to flip flop sides so much. The whole 'romance' between Erin and Logan frustrates me. I also dislike how people flippantly die in these books. Papa Hayes gets shot down by DOME, and it's mentio ...more

It's a very interesting story, a different take on Revelation end times. This the second book in the series. I didn't read the first, but this one gives enough back story for me to know what is going on. The world is united after an all out war. Citizens are marked with a loyalty pledge, but some are not. The unmarked have no privileges in the new society. They must scrounge for food, housing, whatever they need. In the middle of this are groups of teens, looking for one of their members' sister ...more

Sequel to Swipe. A good pickup. Interests you enough to keep moving on. The audio has a few bumps in it that a QA didn't pick up, but overall the narrator does a great job. The only thing I found odd was that in this new world where history and religion are banned there are these few books that are underground copies from before the wars. The only religious text is the Bible. If one is saving religious texts then I would have to think that there were groups of these "Unmarked" in all religious s ...more
I picked this up without realising it was a sequel, but decided to read it anyway. Because of this I was a little confused about the characters and their histories but I understood the plot of the novel regardless. I found it a little bit childish, but thats the audience it was written for, I just didn't realise before I started reading. The fact that there were four or five different flickering viewpoints seemed unnecessary and awkward. I don't think I would have liked this novel much more even ...more

My Opinion: I received a copy of this book free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion.

I didn't think this book (the dreaded second book in a series) would be able to live up to the first one (Swipe), but not only did it live up to it, I honestly think it surpassed it! We got to know the individual characters a lot better as they traveled in groups to Beacon to find a prison that nobody talks about or even knows about (Archeron) and free Logan's sister, Lily. Along the way they meet up with

Below is what I said about the first book in this series, "Swipe", which all applies to this book too. I'm not writing a separate review because honestly I don't remember what happened in which book since I read both books in one day and they sort of fused together in my brain as one continual storyline. I don't remember at all where the first broke off and the second began! Which I guess means they fit together well...?

I will be reading the third in the series only because I need to see more of

Their destination is Beacon City, where he thinks DOME is holding his sister as a prisoner. As they travel further from hom
