About The Book

Forbidden love, intoxicating power, and the terror of control…

Raine has always been a good girl. She lives by the rules in Freedom. After all, they are her father’s rules: He’s the Director. It’s because of him that Raine is willing to use her talent—a power so dangerous, no one else is allowed to know about it. Not even her roommate, Vi.

All of that changes when Raine falls for Gunner. Raine’s got every reason in the world to stay away from Gunn, but she just can’t. Especially when she discovers his connection to Vi’s boyfriend, Zenn. Raine has never known anyone as heavily brainwashed as Vi. Raine’s father expects her to spy on Vi and report back to him. But Raine is beginning to wonder what Vi knows that her father is so anxious to keep hidden, and what might happen if she helps Vi remember it. She’s even starting to suspect Vi’s secrets might involve Freedom’s newest prisoner, the rebel Jag Barque....

My Review
When I reviewed Surrender (Part #1) in this series, I started off by saying one thing... THIS BOOK WILL MAKE YOU THINK! That statements rings true for part 2 as well. Surrender isn't a book that you can simply glide through. In order to really get it, you have to pay attention! There's definitely alot going on!

Surrender isn't your typical sequel. It does way more than just continue the story. It brings to life a whole new set of characters, mixes them with the characters we already know and love, and really pushes their limits! Everyone has their own story to tell, their own agenda, their own part to play! Everyone is important! Make sure to keep track!

I'll be honest, I'm still trying to figure things out. Book one left me wondering who's side to choose? Who's the bad guy? Who's the good guy? Who's playing for BOTH SIDES! I've got so many questions!! Where to start! That's one thing I loved about this book, it's definitely NOT predictable in any way. 

I'm still amazed by the world Elana Johnson has shown us. This futuristic society filled with gifted heroes has enchanted me yet again! I love reading about it! Book one left me curious and waiting for more. Book two completely sealed the deal! I'm a fan of this series for sure. I can't wait to see what happens next!
Four stars from me! Worth the read? Absolutely!

About The Author

Elana is the author of the Possession series, which includes full-length novels POSSESSION and SURRENDER, and short stories REGRET (ebook only) and INSIDER INFORMATION (free here!). Learn how to spell and say her name.

Elana wishes she could experience her first kiss again, tell the mean girl where to shove it, and have cool superpowers like reading minds and controlling fire. To fulfill her desires, she writes young adult science fiction and fantasy.

Using her boring human powers, she graduated from Southern Utah University with Summa Cum Laude honors in Elementary Education with a minor in Mathematics. She started her teaching career as an upper grade music and art specialist. After a four-year stint in 3rd grade, she is currently the technology specialist.

In her world, Oreos and bacon would be the only food groups. Everyone would drive 10 over the speed limit. Winter would be eliminated as a season, and Jeff Probst would be President. As it is, she lives with her husband and two kids in central Utah, gets cited when she drives too fast and eats Oreos only on special occasions.
