Synopsis: Manhattan is home to a thousand-story supertower, a beacon of futuristic glamour and high-tech luxury… and to millions of people living scandalous, secretive lives. LEDA is haunted by nightmares of what happened on the worst night of her life. She’s afraid the truth will get out – which is why she hires WATT, her very own hacker, to keep an eye on all of the witnesses for her.

AVERY is grappling with the reality of her forbidden romance – is there anywhere in the world that’s safe for them to be together? And then there’s CALLIOPE, the mysterious, bohemian beauty who’s arrived in New York with a devious goal in mind – and too many secrets to count.

A dazzling sequel filled with mystery and an opening chapter you will never forget.

I loved how this book opened the same way as the first book in the series. It’s so good to continue he theme, and worked so well to keep the mystery. The minute I read it, my mind started spinning trying to work out what had happened now, and how this could have happened.

The split POV is done so perfectly in this series, and this book especially blew me away with it. It gave such a good oversight into the lives of each character and helped the story to develop at a great pace.

I really liked how the character developed throughout this book, and how the events of the first book were carried across to also feature heavily in this one too. It was so interesting, and the continuity was brilliant.

There are so many main characters in this book, and I’m always worried that some characters will fall behind, or become less important, but they never do. Katharine has such a perfect way with intertwining the lives of each character and also giving them their own individual stories, it was so well written.

The ending had me completely shook – I am completely blown away by it all. It was so clever, and I had so many questions about what would happen next! A brilliant sequel to a wonderful series!
