Ivy Westfall is beyond the fence and she is alone. Abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer, Ivy must find a way to survive on her own in a land filled with countless dangers, both human and natural. She has traded a more civilized type of cruelty-forced marriages and murder plots-for the bare-knuckled brutality required to survive outside Westfall's borders. But there is hope beyond the fence, as well. And when Bishop reappears in Ivy's life, she must decide if returning to Westfall to take a final stand for what she believes is right is worth losing everything she's fought for.

This duo of books (along with "The Book of Ivy") set in a post-nuclear-war future tells an engaging and satisfying story. There's a bit too much exposition and info dump in the beginning, but then things get going. The types of action--in descending amount--include internal, interpersonal, and external, with a nice balance of character development, romance, and tension and suspense. I enjoyed myself.

Ivy Westfall is now beyond the fence and she is alone. She was abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer. Now she must find a way to survive. This is the sequel to “The Book of Ivy”. I really liked the first book because it was really captivating and interesting. I was hoping this book would be a good sequel but unfortunately I was wrong. In this book, Ivy becomes a bigger brat than she already was and when Bishop returns, she's always turning away from him. It's an on-and-off relationship and it's really annoying. Bishop is trying really hard to get Ivy back but she always walks away. She wouldn't even talk to him. She was really annoying and I ended up getting frustrated. At one point I didn't want to read it anymore but I decided to finish it. I personally thought that Ivy became a big brat but the plot line was what kept me going. 3/5 stars.

I loved the survival aspects of this sequel, and the relationships and characters were refreshingly complex for a YA dystopia. That said, the finale didn't feel built up enough, and it started to get a bit preachy at the end, and the whole Mark Laird-as-recurring-antagonist idea went on too long, but overall it was a fairly solid read.

A nice conclusion to the story, I think these books have a lot to say about mature, loving relationships that other teen books omit.
