In a future United States under the power of a charismatic leader, everyone gets the Mark at age thirteen. The Mark lets citizen shop, go to school, and even get medical care—without it, you are on your own. Few refuse to get the Mark. Those who do . . . disappear.
Logan Langly went in to get his Mark, but he backed out at the last minute. Ever since, he’s been on the run from government agents and on a quest to find his sister Lily, who disappeared when she went to get her Mark five years earlier. His journey leads him to befriend the Dust, a vast network of Markless individuals who dissent against the iron-grip rule of the government. Along the way to the capital to find Lily, the Dust receives some startling information from the Markless community, opening their eyes to the message of Christianity and warning that humanity is now entering the End of Days.
In Storm, Logan and his friends are the leaders of the Markless revolution. But while some Markless are fighting Chancellor Cylis’ army, the Dust is busy trying to find a cure for a horrible epidemic sweeping through the Marked. And it’s difficult for them to know who to trust, especially when they aren’t sure if Logan’s sister Lily, one of the commanders in Cylis’ army, is on their side or not. And all across the nation—and the world—the weather has become less stable and a storm is brewing that bigger than any of them could have ever imagined.

What I loved...Action, action and more action. From the beginning to the end. I was very happy to read that while they were at "war", they were still adolescents (tossing balloons full of sludge).  I could totally see this as a movie.


What I liked...
The different scenes and perspectives in each chapter. There was so much going on. I liked how my anticipation grew in each chapter BUT to find out I was reading about a different scene and was just as excited about that chapter, just as was the previous one.


Other...
I haven't read the other books in this series, so it took a little bit of reading before I    felt like I had a better understanding of the already developed characters and story lines. I really like the cover and the video trailer was really good too! You can view it HERE!

Really loved the sludge throwing :) Tyler cracked me up! And the action was so good! I also was glad that this book was still pretty easy to understand and read if you hadn't read the first two books. I had, but that was a while back :P Great review!

I would LOOOVE to see this book series turned into a series of films - it would be stellar for sure! Great review, Cynthia! Also, you *must, must, must* go back and read the other two books in the series!! =)

The backstory stuff probably didn't bother you at all then! Yeah, Tyler was fun in this book. Angler did a better job with his characters than he did in Sneak. They were much stronger this time around. You should read the other two books if you have time. They're fun. Good review! :-)

Now you'll just have to read the rest of them :) Great review!
