Deviate totally lived up to my expectations! Now to await Book #3. How fast can you write Jay Kristoff? 😁

I absolutely love this post apocalyptic, robotic world! If you aren't reading this series - you should be! Kristoff does an amazing job of making you feel like you have been pulled in to his world. There is drama, humor, secrets, lies, manipulations, friendship, loyalty, love, deviate teens with some X-Men like superpowers, killers, fanatical cults set on purifying the race from deviates, dea

On sale now! Review first posted on Fantasy Literature:


In a brutal, blasted country called the Yousay (USA, of course), hostile androids contend against regular humans and superpowered mutants against a backdrop of robot death matches, in a dystopian Mad Max type of world. DEV1AT3 is the sequel to Lifel1k3, which should be read first. Obligatory warning: This review ― not to mention a helpful four-page glossary that author Jay Kristoff provides at the very beginning of DEV1AT3 ― contains a few m

Release date: June 25, 2019 by Knopf Books For Young Readers.

Reading the blurb at Goodreads will spoil you for book one, and we’re still a bit over two weeks out from release day, so I have to be careful about revealing too much.

If you haven’t started this series yet, the setting is a post-apocalyptic garbage dump, environmentally ruined America run by corporations. Most organic beings outside of humans are genetically-engi

That though

Safe to say this book was not what I was expecting. There was a complete shift in focus, where the first book was primarily all about Eve. This book was predominately all about Lemon.

The Cast:
Our favorite sidekick got a promoted to newbie heroine status. In this installment, we learn that Lemon has known about her special abilities for quite sometime. She has chosen to keep her special ability hidden from everyone, even her best friend. But as always with

Amazing! Great characters, entertaining dialogue, terrific story and action, action, action. What more could anyone ask for!

Poor Ezekiel - I cannot imagine what the future holds for him. Poor Fix - the less said about that the better. There were sad moments and fun moments and lot of people and non people dying not very nice deaths. The battles are hugely exciting and the author's imagination knows no bounds. Those hive ladies were just incredible.

And the totally abrupt ending means we are left

I really enjoyed Lemon Fresh in LifeL1k3. She was a breath of fresh air and I really hurt for her and Ezekial at the end of the first book. So I was dying to check out the sequel where our side kick takes center stage...

I think the title Dev1at3 totally suits Lemon's story and goes with the LifeL1k3 moniker quite well. I don't hate the cover design. I think in person it would probably be quite stunning in an understated sort of way. I
ughhhh the wait for the next book WILL be the death of me guys.

DEV1AT3 was such an amazing book. I'm so mad that it took me forever to dive into it but let me tell you - it did not disappoint. I can't believe that I missed everyone so much since I re-read LIFEL1K3. It's weird but oddly comforting. So, when I dove into this book it kind of felt a bit nostalgic.

I will admit that I was a bit disappointed that this mainly focused around Lemon.. but towards the end I think my opinion changed for th
Tara♥ {MindforBooks}

I've come to the conclusion that (along with a couple of other authors) I should just set up a direct debit out of my account each month to go directly into Jay Kristoff's bank account. This would cut out the middle man and let's face it I'm going to end up buying whatever book is the new release eventually so might as well do it in installments. This is my long ass winded way of saying he is an autobuy and I can't wait for this because I loved Lifel1k3.
As soon as I found out this was a book with Lemon Fresh, I was all over it. Then the first page was a glossary slash refresher of all of the characters and I couldn’t stop grinning.

I loved Lemon so much. I was thrilled to get so much time in her head. She’s snarky and maybe a little prickly, but really the softest of marshmallows. There are a few new characters, but I’m going to leave that super vague. Same for what’s going on with the old characters.

Plot wise, it starts with a bang and doesn’

ARC provided by Knopf Books in exchange for an honest review.

I had so much fun reading this one, y’all. I really loved LIFEL1KE, and this sequel did not disappoint. I will admit, however, that I didn’t love it as much as the first book. But that’s just because I had a few issues with the pacing and some of the predictable twists (which, honestly, is not a bad thing.)

DEV1AT3 picks up right after the events in LIFEL1K3. The group is separated into four POVs: Lemon Fresh, Cricket, Eve, and Ezekiel.

Between 2 and 5 stars ???? Nah, it’s probably more of a 4,5 or 5 but …

I am really angry and conflicted!!!! Jay chose a trope that I dislike very much the “everyone is separated and follows his own path while trying to find the others again but that won’t happen or not before a loooong time”.


You have it.

The cause of my anger and the between 2 and 5 stars.


Of course it’s the author’s absolute right to choose his trope.

And no Jay’s writing is not at fault here.

what a fun sequel!! i think i enjoyed this one more than the 1st book! i love there is mini Glossary on the front of the book so youll remember anything that happened on the 1st book!

The Story centered more on on Sidekicks characters on book 1 which i enjoyed immensely! I love Cricket, Zeke and Lemon Fresh so it was so funnnn to be inside their heads in this book

So many actions and robot fights and super powers mixed with funny banters typical Jay Kristoff

This was a solid sequel to Lifel1k3. Jay Kristoff has such a fun way with words that it just makes reading his books so much fun. Yes, they are dark and yes, the most likely aren't always YA, but damn he's just fun.

I will be honest here, it did take a little bit for me to get into this one. Unlike many others, I was never a huge fan of Lemon Fresh, so having a book that was mostly in her POV wasn't something I gravitated to. And while she did grow on me in the end, I think this book was made who

DEV1AT3 is the second installment in author Jay Kristoff's LIFEL1K3 trilogy. In the wake of an uprising in a post-apocalyptic USA, the robotic populace have been reduced to slaves, and androids (robots who look like humans) have been outlawed. LIFEL1K3 was about a girl named Eve and her best friend Lemon who find a ruined android in a scrap heap; an almost-boy named Ezekiel, who knows the truth behind the robotic revolt
Kristoff treats us to the perspectives of Evie, Lemon, Zeke (Ezekiel), and Cricket. I think this worked really well, as we gained more knowledge about deviates, lifelikes, and the world. Hands down Cricket and Lemon are my favorite characters.

In this book we meet more; mostly deviates. Abraham, Grimm and Diesel are key players. I shed a few tears along the way. Kristoff tackles some big life questions and tests his characters. I love that he never takes the path of least resistance and damn it i

Oh Jay Kristoff, you make me want to thump your head after that ending! How am I going to wait another year to find out what happens to my girl, LemonFresh, and Cricket, and the new friends they’ve made?? Grrrrr...

Lifel1k3, book 1, was touted as “Romeo & Juliet meets Mad Max meets X-Men, with a little bit of Blade Runner cheering from the sidelines" Dev1at3 was all of the above times 3!! It felt way more Mad Max and X-Men and to top it off, sidekick Lemon starred in this book! Her and Cricke

Hot damn that was intense! I just need book 3! Like NOW!!!! Damn you Kristoff!!
Oh boy. It’s hard to believe how quickly everything has progressed for these poor characters. This book really pushed the storyline forward and presented us with even more twists and turns for these poor characters. Right off the bat, we meet some new characters and the way Kristoff manages to weave them into the story so naturally is brilliant.

Lemon. Poor fucking Lemon. She’s gone through hell and back already and yet here she’s tossed around yet again and in for a whole new ride. From beginnin

This picks up right after the first book and things go from bad to worse for our little group of misfits. Everyone gets separated, so we follow Lemon, Zeke, Cricket, and Eve separately. And oh boy, it gets all kinds of crazy. There’s a lot going on in this book that easily kept me invested right up to the end. Omg, that ending! Anyway, I’m not going to say much, but it’s cool how Kristoff brought it all together.

I was really excited to read this since I couldn't wait to know what happened next after the plot twist that ended Lifel1k3.

This book focused more on Lemon Fresh's story and we get to know more details about her. I was confused by the new characters at first since there were a lot that were introduced in this book. But after a few chapters, I was already invested in them too!

Just like in Lifel1k3, this book had great characters! The new ones were just as loveable as the old favorites! Lemon Fres

How am I going to wait for the third book? Especially with that ending! Or should I say... cliffhanger?


I wouldn't be able to tell you if I loved this book more than the first. They were both really good and action-packed. I was hooked from the start and I can't wait to read the finale of this trilogy. But first, let me tell you a little bit about Dev1at3.
