DOWNLOAD Burning Nation Divided We Fall #2 AUTHOR Trent Reedy
Eclaring himself president of Idaho with no clear strategy for what to do from there The teens instantly start addressing him as Mr President in a heartbeat as if this were a totally logical step for the man to take There are no high ranking female soldiers or officers in the entire book on either side of the conflict and the other adult women they meet in the town are either useless on their own or traitors There are several passages where JoBell and Becca attempt to speak up during the soldiers battle planning and higher ranked male officers simply ignore them While all of this may be authentic to how real soldiers act it was never treated as something that can or should improve It felt like a teenage boys reenactment of a Call of Duty video game all guns and gore and glory Daniel occasionally attempts to add some ethical weight to IT BY SAYING HOW HORRIBLE IT IS TO HAVE by saying how horrible it is to have kill someone then he sees Becca riding her horse yes her non combat trained horse into battle firing a huge gun and his reaction is I m not gonna lie It was kindof awesome And so we go back to Call of Duty in the space of maybe a minute I felt sorrier for that poor horse than any of the humans in the bookI saw that this book is well reviewed by uite a few people male and female on Goodreads but I ust don t see the appeal It s possible that my complaints can be viewed as a matter of different taste but at the same time because of the graphic battle scenes instances of underage drinking and foul language I would not recommend this to anyone under 16 this will not be reviewed by me on yadaily so my full review will be posted hereI did not expect to like this book as much as I did as seuels normally fall flat for me and I wasn t the biggest fan of Divided We Fall But as I was very invested in the structure of the government in this series I read this in order to see how things played out and was pleasantly surprised Just as in the first book the military talk really interrupted the flow of the novel So much of it I felt like I wasn t understanding simply because the terms used are not common knowledge Many times I had to put the book down and talk the plot over with myself so that I knew what was going on But despite this I enjoyed itMany ethical uestions were brought up in so that I knew what was going on But despite this I enjoyed itMany ethical uestions were brought up in Nation compared to Divided We Fall You got to see new and old characters oin the rebellion and saw their struggles with that decision Danny s friends began to take shape and
Change Which I Lovedwhich I loved I especially loved Danny and Becca s development together and hope that will continue in the next book despite current situations In Divided We Fall it was very clear that Idaho was wrong In Burning Nation the Federal government begins to do unconstitutional things and the tides begin to turn The Federal government is allowed to do everything they did and it s terrifying to consider that this may happen one day Danny s torture was especially interesting to read It was morally wrong but technically allowed Most of this book dealt with they SHOULDN T do it but they CAN which I loved The ending was a huge shock to me and while I knew the Brotherhood was not going to be a good organization I was shocked by the lengths they went to It did not surprise me that states began to secede from the Union As in the last book my absolute favorite part of this series is the news reports civilian comments propaganda etc that give you a glimpse at the way the world is responding to the situation you re reading about I loved seeing the news reports increase in severity as the situation got worse and watching the opinions of each side changeOverall I enjoyed this book and will anticipate the final installment I m very excited to see how this ends as the situation the characters are in right now has become worse than expected. Eems like a straightforward battle against governmental repression uickly grows complicated as states secede people die and Danny discovers the true nature of some of his new alliesChilling powerful and all too plausible BURNING NATION confirms Trent Reedy's place as a provocative new voice in YA fiction. ,
In my opinion this book
Is Just As Greatjust as great the first book in the Divided We Fall series If you read the first book and enjoyed it I strongly suggest reading this book This part of the series is mainly about the war between the United States of America and Idaho And coping with the new way of life for Danny his friends and the new nation The book still contains a great mix of love war and family but no longer has many sports or high school life Once again I strongly suggest reading this book because in my opinion it is ust as good as the first one if not better While Burning Nation the second book in the Divided We Fall trilogy by Trent Reedy it was still a great book The story continues to follow the story of Daniel Wright and his friends as tension continue to build between Idaho and the United States Throughout the story states start to rebel and eventually the ordeal escalates into another civil war Reedy uses every little detail throughout the story He ensures that everything gets explained or has a purpose during the story There are constant reminders that the characters are ust high school students Even in the midst of the crazy war they still have the typical high school drama Each character has their own challenges that they have to overcome The reason this book was not as good as the first was because I felt the plot was predictable The first book presented twists and turns always leading to the unexpected while Burning Nation had less crazy twists The story takes place in the United States and involves multiple states accurately depicted in their real life locations The plot while unlikely could happen in real life it the states became infuriated at the government It was similar to style to the first book because it was the same author and the same series but it was also similar to the Gone series by Michael Grant in the way it creates suspenseful situations While this is a great book there are some sexual relations lots of swear words and lots of death The story s main point is that there are freedoms that cannot be taken away and there are always people that will fight for them The theme is once again is Unity among friends and nation as well as how far people are willing to go to protect their freedoms Lastly it was fairly easy to read and is perfect high schoolers because it is fun to read but there are situations that would not be appropriate for younger audiences I haven t slept yet because the book is that good This book was read and reviewed by my co worker EmilyThe seuel to Divided We Fall Seventeen year old Daniel Wright has inadvertently started the second American civil war through his actions during a protest in his home state of Idaho during the first book This one covers the aftermath where Idaho declares itself independent from the United States and Daniel and his fellow rebels are in hiding from federal government agentsThis book starts in the middle of a battle scene so I m led to believe it starts right after the events of the first book Daniel and co find a hiding place under a car repair shop where they stay and try to take care of their wounded and figure out their next move They sneak around the town stealing supplies and seeing who is on their side and who isn t and one of the soldiers gets infected and dies despite their efforts to clean his wounds These various scenes are periodically interrupted by 2 3 pages of italicized news broadcasts and interrupted by 2 3 pages of italicized news broadcasts and media posts about the incident and the events that follow giving the reader a feel for what s going on in the rest of the country while the teenagers pretend to be revolutionariesWhen everyone isn t arguing about what to do next they re arguing about the girls JoBell Daniel s girlfriend who wants to support him but predictably also tries for a peaceful solution to. In this wrenching seuel to DIVIDED WE FALL Danny and friends fight to defend Idaho against a Federal takeover and the ravages of a BURNING NATIONAt the end of DIVIDED WE FALL Danny Wright's beloved Idaho had been invaded by the federal government their electricity shut off their rights suspended Danny go.
