Emma has gotten herself trapped in an evil game of cat and mouse and she seems to be on the losing side. A dangerous family secret has her stealing into Territory M while attempting to convince the middle class to help bring the walls of division down.

Craigluy is a world divided according to class. Lower, middle and upper classes are separated and live totally different lives. In Territory L, Emma Whisperer is the last child to turn 18. The last baby to grow up. Lower class citizens have been deemed irresponsible and are no longer allowed to have children. Anyone who comes up pregnant is arrested, forced to bear the child and watch as the baby is taken away to be killed. It is a brutal world to live in. Those in Territory M and Territory U ha ...more

Book # 2 in the Extinction of all Children series, Journey to Territory M felt like a whole lot of hurrying to go nowhere. It seems some of the reader's questions will be answered with this book, but of course we need the last book in the series to get to a resolution. Emma's journey from Territory L to Territory M is dangerous, but they manage to make it. The teenagers meet up with a group of runaways in an abandoned school. Things get more intense for Emma and she is starting to learn that she ...more

Rating: 2 Out of 5 Stars

I would like to thank Netgalley for providing me with this book.

So, I really did want to like this one, but I just found it very hard to get into it. The first book in the series, I did actually like a lot, but this one was just missing something for me and I really can’t figure out what it was. I mean, it just didn’t get my attention.

First off, I really didn’t find any character growth, which is something that I look for in a
No thanks! I rated this as 1.5 stars.

I honestly did not read the first book but regardless I feel like I did not miss anything at all. I read the entire first half of the page (every word count) and got bored after that and flipping only on dialogues until the last chapter.

I had waited for Emma's character growth as I find her really weak and honestly Annoying.
But that didn't happen either. For one, when Eric was in the holding cell, her first reaction was he was shirtless with his chiseled bod

Journey to Territory M is the second installment in author LJ Epps Extinction of All Children trilogy. In a place called Craigluy, which apparently exists between Arizona and California, a President has determined that the "country" will be divided into three territories for the lower class, middle-class, and the upper class. In 2080, she determined that no more babies were allowed to be born in the lower-class territory. Any

I seriously struggled with the writing in this book. Too many times the wording made so little sense it kept me from following what was going on in the story. For example in chapter 6: why are you shooting a rat in the ac duct work if you are trying to sneak away? Why would you yell to "hurry up" if your trying to escape quietly out of the building? Chapter 7: "We end up at a set of steps. There are three large steps that we walk up. " It just comes off as someone trying to reach a word count or ...more

I received a free copy of this book and opted to share a review. This is a first impression review and I plan on sharing my full review in April.

The character development in this installment of the series is slightly better than its predecessor; however, the secondary characters seemed to evolve more than Emma. I found this strange because the plot is supposed to follow Emma. Maybe this is the author's way of emphasizing that Emma is unremarkable when compared to her peers, leading us to some so

Thank you to NetGalley for allowing me to read this advanced reader’s copy in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I felt this book, compared to the first, had a little bit more going on. I'm enjoying how the story is progressing and find myself still engaged in Emma's story. In this book, she escapes into territory M with Eric and Julian. Her niece Abigail is taken away by President Esther and Emma is hoping to find her. She meets some others along the way and her

Book two finds Emma in Territory M, along with fellow guards and escapees Eric and Julian. She is still searching for her niece, who may have been illegally adopted rather than killed. She also hopes to talk to the unknown leader of Territory M, in hopes that they will help her in her quest to tear down the walls.

The underlying purpose of book two is simple: hide, and don’t get caught. So why are Emma, Eric, and Julian constantly doing things that would defeat that purpose? It was more than a li

Great dystopian style of read. If you liked Hunger Games and Divergent, this is a series you may enjoy. Overall, great for teens. I enjoyed this book more than the first and look forward to book three.

As Emma escapes into territory M, she attempts to change the middle classes view of tearing down class walls, but has to stay alive in the process. She makes new friends but also learns she can’t trust everyone she thinks that she can. New waves of danger happens as she tries to get to the leader

This pick up where the first book ends, after Emma and Eric escape with Julian’s help to Territory M. Emma and company will have to learn that you can’t always trust everyone that you think you can and that those that you feel you shouldn’t trust can be your best ally.

I can see this happening if people allow themselves to stop caring about those we elect to serve us do and it's a scary thought...

While there are some flaws with the writing, this is something that I feel will be resolved as the a

The second book in the series is darker than the first, portraying the Government in a much harsher light. There are more deaths, with almost no characters sacred.
In some ways, the tale parallels the adventure from the first book, though more intense. We still don’t know what the connection between Emma and the president is. This mysterious connection is the only thing that makes Emma’s survival believable. President Esther gives Emma too many chances and seems too naive. She gives Emma too much

I am giving a fair, honest, voluntary review of this book. I am an arc reader. I was anxious to read this book. The first book in the series left me with many questions. I wanted answers. I have to say a few things were disturbing to me, but in a society structured like this one is it seemed a possibility that it could happen. One thing I found distracting was the constant use of the word pass in place of past. For instance. I pushed pass him to get in front. It may seem a trivial thing, but it ...more

3.5 stars. We start to get some more answers but also a lot more questions about the world Emma is living in. The concept is sound but the details are shakey - I'm still not impressed with the forced love triangle situation and in this book, I feel like there was a lot of discussion about clothing, which was odd. Hoping this series ends on a higher note that makes it worth reading three books to get to the ending.

Thanks to the publisher for providing this through Net Galley in exchange for an ho

This is the second book in the Extinction of All Children series. It is a very exciting book. I find myself almost speed reading to find out what is going to happen next. This book has a few corrections that need to be made, but other than that it is a wonderful story. I can't wait to read book 3. To the Author: I would be glad to send you my notes on the errors if you are interested.

Journey to Territory M is the second in a series by L. J. Epps. Book one was Extinction of all Children. Journey to Territory M starts immediately where book one ended. Similar to The Hunger Games, these stories are for the young adult readers. I am far from that age group but enjoyed this story. I was given a copy to review.

I received a copy of this from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is another interesting installment in the trilogy. Although the plot is interesting, I felt like the writing was stilted and could have used a few more rounds of revision and cutting of superfluous details.

While not as strongly written as book 1, I still felt pulled in. Definitely read in order. Good characters, but the dialogue was just weak.

Full disclosure- I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Emma's journey continues in this second book of the Extinction of all children series. I had not read any of LJ Epps books before picking up the first book and I'm so impressed with his writing and story building style. The books give a scary picture of what life could devolve into. The fear and hardships endured in Territory L are supposed to inspire them to work hard enough to earn their "promotion" to Territory M. But what did they earn? Emma is surprised to find that life in this territory i ...more
