As usual, I find myself not really liking the second book of a trilogy. It's always difficult for me to rate them or to know what to think of them. This one was particularly not to my liking. I mean, I liked to learn more about this world and the plot was great but it just felt flat. There was no real dynamics in the book; I was not captivated by it.
The plot was great: the truth about the Surrogates and about the creation of The Lone City was quite a surprise and I found the idea really good, it quite surprised me, I was not expecting that. But the book was too slow, by the time Violet and her friends find the truth and decide to do something about it, the book is over. I felt like nothing happened during this book and that was the problem with it.
However, there is this really great plot twist at the end that was just amazing! I will definitely read the third book and I hope I will like it more than The White Rose.
