When Logan Langly backed out of getting the Mark and went on the run, no one thought he could survive on his own. Without the Mark, you can’t buy food, go to the doctor, or use a tablet–you aren’t even a citizen.

But when he discovers that his sister is being held in a mysterious hidden prison named Acheron, Logan risks everything to travel through an underground network of the Markless to rescue her.

Logan arrives only to find that Acheron holds more secrets than anyone could have guessed and that all his careful planning is worthless against a government that will do anything to gain absolute control.

It seems there is only one place to turn. But can a banned book with whisper-thin pages and warnings about the real meaning of the Mark really hold the Answer?

If Swipe was about the author introducing us about the whole being “marked” thing when they turned 13, well this one is about Logan going off to an adventure to look for his sister who supposedly wasn’t marked (when she was supposed to) and was thrown into some place where all the other unmarked who were supposed to be marked were. The question is where is she? Is she still alive? Or were they just rumors?

I am blown away. Sneak surprised me in numerous ways. I was not expecting for it to have so much twists because the first book, Swipe, was an okay book for me. I liked it but did not love it, but oh my goodness, this one was the complete opposite. I freakin loved it. The number one thing I loved about Sneak was that the author came up with so many interesting ideas and that the pacing was a lot better. It wasn’t slow in any of the parts, but the chapters were still super long. The chapters were still divided in sections by numbers which switched off to different perspectives. I think there were 3 or 4 perspectives, I forgot, but definitely more than two. It wasn’t confusing and I think is actually the reason of why this book was such a page turner for me! If it switched off to different perspectives, then you would want to know what happened to the other characters right? Then after you read that character’s perspective, you’re left wanting to know more of what happened to the other characters again, and so on.

I freakin loved the characters too! I enjoyed how we got to know more about Logan, Erin, Peck, and the rest of the Dust! I really think they’re mature for their age (they are 13 year olds I think) which was fun to read and wasn’t annoying. They weren’t whiny at all, and man were they risk takers! I know if I was 13 again and I was in their situation I probably would have just given up. I enjoyed how each character developed, grew, and changed. There were also some new characters, and Logan’s sister’s character is definitely to look out for. You’ll be shocked with her character! I want to put spoilers in this review so bad. Lol. Just kidding. Go read this book! I stayed up past 1a.m. and it was totally worth it. So much adventure and surprises; goodluck taking them in! From 3.5 stars (the rating I gave to Swipe) to 5 stars, thunder claps to Evan Angler! I definitely recommend this series to everyone.
