Three months ago, all I wanted was to stay up late playing video games and pretending the world was fine. With my parents’ role in a massive political conspiracy exposed, I ended up on the run, desperate to rescue my little brother, Charles, from the clutches of The

i LOVED the fast paced action in this book! I think that there could have been another book after this to explain even more but I don’t mind the ending too much anyway.

If you like action books, go for this!!!!!

Day One  picks up right where its predecessor  Day Zero left off, with main character Jinx and her stepsister MacKenna trying to find Jinx's brother, who has been taken. Jinx's parents and MacKenna's dad have all played a fairly active role in the current hellscape that was the United States, so it could really be just about any faction out to get them. Jinx's father was a big

Day One is the second and final installment in author Kelly deVos Day Zero Duology. This book focuses on several key characters including Susan "Jinx" Marshall and MacKenna Novak who are stepsisters thrown into a world of political deceit, and betrayal, while being chased by two separate groups called the Spark and the Opposition who wants what Jinx has. As the story opens, the group of Jinx, Jay Novak, Gus Navarro, M

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and Inkyard Press.

Gonna be honest with you. Reading this duology so close to the US election was not an entirely comfy situation but we'll worth it.

Day One is stunning. Susan has claimed herself as Jinx and MacKenna wants answers.

It starts with the hunt to get Charles back and a series of increasingly more horrifying choices.

It left me shaken but hopeful.

This book was such a fast paced action book and I throughly enjoyed it. I do wish it was a trilogy instead of a duolgy though. I feel like there could be more to tell.

Talk about an action packed book.
There was So much going on at all times. So many different pieces all moving together it was hard to imagine a bigger picture. Characters did seem to pop up from seemingly no where though which did bother me a bit.
I loved loved the politics side of it. It was very insightful as a look into power hungry people.
It was very refreshing for the romance to be barely there in these books.
I only realised halfway through this book that the only character with a person

I was hoping to enjoy this; disaster stories are my jam, after all. And it's not bad, per se. It's a little chaotic; things keep happening, one after another, and our characters are flung from one situation to the next without much time to recover in between. There are allies and amazing tech everywhere you look; I was very rarely worried about them, because people kept turning up to help them.

It's interestingly written, with a few good twists, but it just wasn't enough for me, I'm afraid. I'm g
Day Zero by Kelly deVos is one of those review copies I never quite got around to reading last year. However, one of the benefits of not reading a book promptly is not having to wait for the sequel. Instead, you can read both the original and the sequel back to back. This was my approach to Day Zero and its sequel, Day One.

A funny thing happened when I finished one and started the other, however. It quickly became apparent that the version of Day Zero I read had some major changes made to it bef

Day One is the second book in the Day Zero duology. It is a Young Adult apocalyptic multi-perspective science fiction book.

The book follows Jinx the daughter of a survivalist and a computer genius. It is also told from the perspective of Jinx’s stepsister, MacKenna, an aspiring journalist. Also, Gus, a boy who has had a crush on Jinx for years and who promised her father to help her to survive.

this is the second in a series about two step-sisters who are trying to find their little brother and avoid being killed by opposing political forces in this post-apocalyptic adventure. I really enjoyed the author's writing style (obviously because this is book two) although at times the story so closely mirrored some of our current political extremes that it was frightening. I would give this one 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ...more

If you are looking for a super fast paced ya action book with political intrigue and mystery then this is a great book for you. If you're looking for a lot of character depth and descriptions it is not. I personally loved it. Its easy to get into and just keep reading because the story marches right along and you get sucked in. The only downside to this book was I felt like it could have been a trilogy to explain things a bit more. Here's hoping there's a novella in the future. ...more

I wish this book had another coming. But this was a great ending to this two book series. I loved the outcome and the characters and I was blown away!! I need this as a movie or tv series!! I loved this from the beginning and the pacing is so fast that it was over as soon as I started!! If you loved book one this one is going to knock your socks off.

Once again, fast paced and epic! Not a lot of in depth character arc but you’re still connected and on the edge of your seat. Got to know the girls a bit better. This is the kind of book I’m looking for. Matches up nicely with my movie preferences as well. Also mad props for that recap!
Thanks netgalley.
All opinions are my own.
