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.

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

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

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
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

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

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

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.

Mr. Arbitor is being demoted because of the antics of his daughter Erin. Breaking into DOME, stealing equipment and maybe helping a Markless escape causes Mr. Arbitor's bo

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

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

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. I espeicially like how it was all underground and there was a Undergrou ...more

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

I would give this series a 6/10 but this book a 7/10

I really enjoy this series, I do enjoy Christian books but normally don't like the in your face ones that are quoting to you every few minutes, but with this series I actually didn't even know it was a Christian series till almost half way through the 1st book, it does a good job of building a dystopian world that actually feels believable for people to live in after what happened.

That being said I do not believe that the characters actions and

Sneak picks up immediately after the previous story’s end, with Logan on the run and the Dust in the wind. In the aftermath, Logan and Peck, leader of the Dust, share a common goal--find Logan's sister Lily. Five years ago, Lily supposedly died when she went to receive her Mark, but Logan has since received information that she is actually in some sort of prison. Logan and the Dust travel along the River to Beacon, the capital city, where they will try to break Lily out. Meanwhile, Logan's frien ...more

It was a good sequel to the first book. The only aspect that I found a little weird was the fact that Christianity was like put on a pedestal. Like out of all the religions in the old world they could have chosen or thought about, it was weird to me that they only mentioned that one and accepted it as complete truth, so much so that they started to pray at one point in the book. Also the ending seemed a little too good to be true and rushed over for a part of most books that is drawn out to buil ...more

This is the second book in the swipe series and I liked it about the same amount. However, there were some religious undertones in this story that I wasn't particularly fond of. I liked the River and getting to Beacon. At the end, we learn of a new development for the marking process and one that is rather interesting. Maybe the next book will shed light on it. ...more

Great second book in the series. More Christian theme came up in this one. Our characters are trying to save Lily, Logan's sister, but they run into trouble and of course things don't go as planned on their journey to get to her or when they make the attempt. Lots of clean action, and teenage angst with her likes her and she likes him, la la la! ...more

This is book 2 in a dystopian series about a society where everyone has to get a mark in order to get a job, buy things, have a house, etc. Those who refuse the mark are called Markless, and they are starting to rebel.

I am still totally engaged in the series. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next.

BOO! I hate endings that make me second guess everything that I ever perceived as the truth. For some reason, though, authors seem to love them. Probably because it makes everyone eager to read the next book and the next book and so on. Yeah. So, basically I am dying for the next book.

I really liked the first book in the Swipe series, it brought to light this dystopian society based on peace through unity and just how real the society could be. It showed the fact that peace and unity comes with

Evan lives without the Mark, evading DOME and writing in the shadows of Beacon.

Swipe is his first book. But if anyone asks, you know nothing about it, and you didn't hear anything from him. Don't make eye contact if you see him. Don't call his name out loud. He's in enough trouble already.

And so are you , if you've read his book.
