The Release

I knew it couldn’t have been as idyllic as it looked on the page, but a part of me ached for a return to that life, where everyone was a part of the whole and there weren’t men on ATVs hunting down the weak and different. A return to a world without Less Thans.

Two months have passed since Book, Cat, Hope, and the others rescued the remaining Less Thans, but no one is safe yet. The group must leave Liberty for good and escape the wolves, the Brown Shirts, and the Hunters. Most important, they need to stop Chancellor Maddox before she executes her Final Solution and grows even more powerful.

While the others are seeking freedom, for Hope the battle has become personal. She wants revenge, no matter what the cost.

Tom Isbell’s suspenseful postapocalyptic series comes to a thrilling conclusion as the group must risk everything in order to defeat their enemies.

Editorial Reviews

“This riveting sequel to The Prey should definitely appeal to teen readers, reluctant or otherwise.”
