Unleashed, the romantic, high-stakes sequel to New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan's Uninvited, is perfect for fans of James Patterson's Confessions of a Murder Suspect.

Davy has spent the last few months trying to come to terms with the fact that she tested positive for the kill gene HTS (also known as Homicidal Tendency Syndrome). She swore she would not let i

Am I the only one who noticed there is NO hint to Sean whatsoever in this books summary ?

I'm going to say this straight out: I'm a bit disappointed with Unleashed. It felt almost unnecessary, and there were so many times when I found myself wondering why it was necessary for this to be a duology.

I absolutely loved Uninvited with its unique look on a dystopian society based on science. To someone who is intrigued by genetics, it was utterly plausible in the most eerie way possible. Yet, in Unleashed, I didn't feel that same fearful and plausible atmosphere. The sense of fear and un

WHAT?! No Sean??? Who is this Caden?? I swear, if Sean isn't in this, I'm not reading this.

Edit:
Well, it looks like I'm never gonna read this. (Why did she have to ruin a perfectly good romance???)

Caden? Caden? Is that Sean spelled backwards and then sideways (lie to me)?
Trina (Between Chapters)
I just didn't think this sequel was necessary. I was much more interested in the snippets between each chapter of what was going on within the government on a broader scale than in Davy's romantic detour. She personally didn't DO anything in this book, and even her personal arc was quickly undone in the end, so having her be the sole focus was a bit boring. I wanted to know more about those internal government snippets because they just seemed to keep saying "A big thing just happened that you d ...more

When I saw Caden in the blurb and not Sean.

I know quite a few people didn't enjoy book one in this series, Uninvited, but I absolutely loved it. Most people weren't happy that there wasn't an explanation provided about the HTS gene and how that is even supposed to work. But I'm the girl who enjoys superhero movies, if I was going to sit there and question the actual science behind them then I wouldn't enjoy them half as much. Sometimes you just have to enjoy the story for what it is, a piece

Actual rating: 1.5 stars

If you have NOT read Uninvited please read with caution. There are some spoilers that were unavoidable. Proceed with caution . . .

Duologies are perfect for those who don’t like sticking with trilogies, or worse, series that are longer than three books. They’re also perfect for those who don’t like standalones. However; in this case, I might have preferred a standalone. This is coming from someone who is obsessed with Sean. Bri

MY THOUGHTS
I read the last book a year ago, but I remember really enjoying it. Sadly, I didn't like this book as much and, really, it didn't feel like it was even the same series.

Davy and her friends have escaped their horrible imprisonment and are making their way to a safe camp down in Mexico. Things go awry along the way, though, and Davy ends up getting separated from her friends. Dying, Davy is saved by a man and taken to a hidden rebel camp. There, she will have t

Contempt over a needless romance unleashed.

I gave Uninvited five stars last year, but after a while I wasn't incredibly interested in the sequel for some strange reason. When I was sent a review copy, though, I picked it up because--well, I love the first book, so why not give the second a chance?
Yeah, maybe I shouldn't have really picked it up.
It's hard to introduce a new major player in a sequel and even more so when that new player turns out to be a love interest. It'

Imagine this, a sequel to the Uninvited a book that mixes the minority report and teen kind of dystopia. There, you’ll meet Davy, a girl who has it all but loses it due to a gene that she carries. A killer gene. People like her, known as hts carriers or carries for short, are potential killers. They face persecution for a gene that they have no control over and are constantly watching their backs for fear of going to jail or ending up in a worse place.

After a mall shooting, Davy is recruited to

I was afraid this would happen. The first book was so exciting and filled with new ideas. This book centered on a romance that was INSANELY back and forth, while the world building took a back seat. Like all the way back. What a bummer.

Ok, I know plenty of people have already mentioned it before but ...where the actual hell is Sean?

The thing about Uninvited was they were planning for a future, to escape with Gil and Sabine, then bam no mention of the love interest you have been lusting over from about the first chapter. And while I am all for new love interests, but not triangles, this series is great with just one guy and that guy is Sean.

So I swear if this book has a love triangle or if Sean dies, which I seriously hope wi

I think if you can get past the change in direction that Sophie Jordan takes in this sequel (yes, I became attached also--and yes, this was difficult!), then you can enjoy the intensity of Unleashed. It may not have as much straight action, but it is still exciting and has many thrilling moments. It was another quick read and very addictive--fun escape!
Colleen Houck
Unleashed is just as thrilling as its predecessor. I love the covers with the DNA hair so much! Davy is on the run and so many bad things happen to her, I'm surprised the girl is still alive. Love her new boyfriend. Can picture him very clearly. Have to go back and reread the inserts between chapters. So much info in there and they're so clever.
Spencer
This book actually started out really strong for me. It had great pacing. I enjoyed Davy's character more than the first. She got a lot stronger, less trusting (as you'd expect quen everyone either wants you to die or wants to use you to kill). She struggles with some of her actions from the first book (understandably). If the book had kept impressing me than the book would have definitely gotten a higher rating.

But the ending felt rushed. I won't elaborate too much to avoid spoilers but the gov

I was super excited about getting this one because I loved the first one. I am not sure I loved it as much at the first book, I think this one was what I was expecting. I kind of feel like it was its own book, and its kind of hard to express why I felt that way. I did love this book in its self; it had its own awesomeness to it!

Davy, Sean, Gil and Sabine take the journey to flee the US and try to get into Mexico. But after they almost get caught and Davy is shoot she is separated from the group

Update 2/20/2017 - 2 stars was too generous so I'm lowering my rating to 1 star.

I'm SO upset I didn't like this sequel! The premise for this series had soooooo much potential and I was really looking forward to it. Now I'm just really disappointed. Absolutely nothing happened for the first 200+ pages, then it got kind of cool, and the ending was just rushed. The love triangle was extremely unnecessary (and I wasn't too hot for either of the love interests anyways) and did nothing for the plot wh

Okay, you cannot pull ye old switcheroo on me. Not happening. You spent ALL that time trying to make me love Sean and I think I did for what? Who changes the love interest just like that in a duology? There's a reason people don't do it! I think reading this book will kill what [little] love I already had for this series.

HELLA NO.

After reading some reviews and a few spoilers, I'm not going to be picking this one up. I have a feeling that I wouldn't be too happy with the way things end with the romance aspect.
