Tessa | 1951 comments Description: "Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby “Leader”, but she knows what she really is: a monster.

When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children’s League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America’s children—and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts—has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future—and who now wouldn’t recognize her.

As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam—and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart—she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?"


*This is the second book in the series: The darkest minds.

I'm reading this together with Tara. Everyone is welcomed to join us! :)


Tessa | 1951 comments I started reading this, actually, I've just finished chapter 10. I couldn't stop myself, this book is so interesting and the world building and character development is just amazing.
I'm happy to see Chubs back in the picture and I also like the new characters added to the story. :)


Tara | 210 comments I read 5 chapters, but I can understand why you could not stop reading. I had to stop but it was hard. :)

Tessa | 1951 comments Ruby is much more mature in this book. I really liked her evolution throughout the series. This author really does know how to develop her characters. Well, at least Ruby and Chubs, Liam is kinda brain-dead from what I heard :( . I think that all that messing whit his brain didn't do him a lot of good.

I also like the new added characters: Vaida and Jude sure give a new flavor to this book ^^. I have a feeling I won't get to see Zu in this book. I really liked her in the first book and in the short novel.


Tara | 210 comments Ruby does seem like she has become much more mature.
I love Chubs too!! So far Vida is interesting as a character, and I think that she will grow on me. Of the new characters I think I like Jude the best. I love his innocence.

I got through chapter 10 last night.

Tessa | 1951 comments Oh, Jude is lovely! He's a nice substitute for Zu. He's just so freaking adorable! ^^

Bette (bluedott19) | 1 comments I have just finished this book... like 5 minutes ago. OhMyFudge! Jude... Jude! But.. but.. grrr Clancy. And I know you're supposed to like Liam... but the girl in me who likes bad boys kinda likes Cole more. If you could combine Cole and Liam to make one whole character... my god it would be perfect! Oh and I am so team Chubs and Vida. I mean c'mon, so so great as a partnership. That scene though in the gas station and that moment!!! Ach my aching heart!!

Oh and... Hi :)

Tessa | 1951 comments Yeah, Jude, I loved him so much! >.<

As a favorite male character, I think I like Chubs. Cole is sexy and Liam is confused, but in this book the best developed character is Chubs.... and Vaida. Yeah, I do think they would make a weird/hot couple XD.

I like how you summed that up!

Tara | 210 comments I finished this one up last night.

I think Vida and Chubs have a love/hate relationship going on there. I would not be surprised if they ended up together in the next book.

(view spoiler)


Tessa | 1951 comments Yes, Liam does get better by the end of the book, but I didn't want to spoiler you before. I hoped you would enjoy it more like this. :)
I also don't trust Cole, but, I still don't think he's really, really bad, just thinks in a more drastic way.

About Clancy, I like him as the bad character. He's flawed in so many ways, but didn't lost his humanity completely, or if he did, that happened gradually. That makes him look more real to me.

Like I said, best point this author has is for creating real complex characters and developing them along the way.

About Jude... I'm still sobbing.
