Never Fade

Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a aily 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 nything to protect the people she tell. But what if winning the war means losing herself?

In he fourt essa, Ruby, as sixteen-year-old girl wanders about after breaking out from Thurmond ( a rehabilitation facility) when she meets some kids from the League of Children, an organization leaded by a former politician, who wishes to take down the current governor of the United States.

Ruby is an Orange, meaning she can get inside people 's head, see their memories, take control of them.

In thi second book she 's not able to control her powers all that well which is why when she touches the hand of a member of the League of Children, she ees his memory of killing two children mercilessly because he thought they were worthless.

With the ai of Jude and Vida, fellow LoC members, she must recover the lost usb stick that Liam 's brother, Cole, lost.

Therefor the name of fhe book: Never Fade Do n't forget, there 's lot of Chubs in this, I love guy too.

I would n't connect to the new characters and did n't now why Ruby was ...

I 'm rustrated because I own the whole trilogy, but I 've had them for like 3 years now and I just do n't care about them nymore.

UPDATE: 99 cents Kindle US 5/19/19This book surely ended on a cliffhanger!

But it was more of an in your face cliffhanger=) Ruby has joined the Children 's League and the others in the next book are out on their own.

Ruby goes out on OPS with different groups to try and help some other kids that have talents like she does.

The kids in the ook have different colored labels.

And then we always run into jerk kids that want to run things and be over other sweet kids and gah!!!!!!!

3.5/5 StarsAfter I finished reading Never Fade, I 'm quite sure that if I read his trilogy back when I was 15-17 years old ( well the books were n't out yet 10 years ago so it 's impossible), it would 've been included into my favorite shelves and received 5 stars from me, for both books so far.

It 's certainl a bit unfair to compare them since I have n't read the Hunger Games or Divergent books but I watched the movies and I do n't sa this time the books can redeemed the stain I have towards them, especially the Divergent series.Never Fade is actually better than the irst nove in almost every aspect and yet I wante to make a 3.5 star rating.

Ruby, the main character is so irritating.In the first ook I was so-so with how I felt about her but this time, she grew to be uch more nnoying and considering everything in the story is from her POV, it 's quite painful to read.

Liam is not as right as he is in book 1 but after all the hings he 's been through from the beginning and the novella, it 's really understandable why he act like he did.

Still, Chubs is back in full throttle and he became my favorite character so far, I only have to read book 3 to see if it will remain that way.

The greatest new addition side character goes to Jude but I ca n't sa you somethin about him since he appeared since the eginning of he book til the end and I do n't expect to spoil you, just know that there 's a lot of humor coming from him and Chubs.There 's more actions this time compared to before and yes, most of them occurred around the Powers the characters ar.

I didn ’ t like that it came about as esult of Ruby ’ s stupid decisions, and the cliffhanger itself came from her Worst Decision Ever ( view spoiler) [ erasing Liam ’ s memory and aligning with the League ( hide spoiler) ], but it honestl did intrigue me and had me highly anticipating the sequel -- I thought it opened up all kinds of doors to the story and I was excited to see where the author would take it.

( view spoiler) [ The way he whole memory thing with Liam played out ended up being kind of umb.

I did like how I was kept guessing for a bit about how things would work out with Ruby and him, but then ... they kiss and then he just magically remembers everything?

ome other thoughts: Ruby and ( view spoiler) [ Chubs ( hide spoiler) ] -- one of he man things I love in his ook was their relationship.

Ruby and Liam -- their relationship on the other hand, didn ’ t always feel as believable.

( hide spoiler) ] Vida and Jude -- like the supporting characters we met in the irst ook, these two were really nice additions.

I don ’ t kno I care enough anymore about our main character Ruby to make point of reading the firs nove.
