Divided We Stand
The decision to splinter backfires.
When Lauren and the others leave the safety of the valley in search of supplies and aid, theyre trapped, captured, and tortured. Escape seems impossibleif theyre to survive, it will only be by rescue, and not without blood on their hands and tears in their eyes.

I'm really enjoying this story but to me this book was disjointed. There was too much skipping around from each characters point of view at different times from one day forward to present day then back two days. It just hurt the cohesiveness in my opinion. That being Saud the story is still great and I look forward to reading more.
Another great book in this series. I find myself enthralled with what these characters will do and say next even though I don't always agree with their theories. This book had a little more conspiracy theory preaching than the last and I have to admit it sure makes you think! Lauren has changed so much from book 1 until now and she seems to be getting harder in each book which makes sense in the situations. I really want to know where Allen is and can't wait for the next book. I ...more

I've enjoyed each book in this series, but it's rare to see one just get better and better like this one has. Yes, authors do mature in the execution of their craft but ideas and plot lines tend to overstay their welcome -- like in-laws at Christmas -- in many series I've read. That's just not the case here. If you happen to read this Mr. Rudolph, I hope you have several more books planned in this world/character cast as there seems to be much story left to tell.

As they become divided, some leaving the valley, they become weaker and each group faces separate dangers.
A stark warning to all of us about the dangers that could come to pass, this series improves with each book.
My only niggle is that, to me, words such as pranced, shimmied and caper don't fit, especially in the context they were used and that made them stand out every time.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was another solid addition to a wonderful and interestingly told story. Initially, not getting the details right away was bothersome but I've come to enjoy this style more and more.
The reunions were great but there's still one more that I'm holding my breath for. I'm anticipatory as well as cautious for what's to come.
