Secrets of the Unaltered Review

Secrets of the Unaltered
(Confederation #2)
Leti Del Mar

4 Stars!!

The fate of the entire Confederation rests on their shoulders. 

Only they have what it takes to uncover the secrets that have imprisoned their land, but can they survive a truth more disturbing than they ever imagined?

Rose and Flynn have left the Land of the Unaltered on a mission to discover the truth behind who created the genetically engineered super army and stop it before the Rebellion is doomed. Time is ticking, but soon capital life begins to pull them in different directions. Flynn struggles to fit in with the self-indulgent and fashion obsessed populous while the expectations of Rose’s influential family tests their fragile and newly formed relationship. Will they let the capital pull them apart? 

Everyone is counting on them, but in this time of discord, can they count on each other?

Secrets of the Unaltered is a Young Adult Dystopian Romance and is the second installment of The Confederation Chronicles

My Thoughts….

This book was really good. We started out only a few hours after the first one ended. Rose and Flynn are on the convoy on their way back to Civitas. They are about to try and find the secrets of the capitol. Find the secrets that can also bring Civitas down for good. Can Flynn and Rose count on each other? What happens when Rose finds out just what her Father is up to? And how will she handle it?

We open right as the first one ended. The second book is still double POV which I still love. I really liked this book. The beginning was a little slow for my taste, plus I hate David. But I stuck it out and I am so glad I did. We get to see the evil that is within the capital of the confederation and just how much Rose’s father is involved. Rose and Flynn were really tested in this book. Not only as individuals but as a couple. They had to learn to trust in each other and their relationship. I was rooting for them the entire time. I mean who wouldn’t. They have to face so much together.

Both Rose and Flynn have to face their weaknesses and they are also exploited time and time again, until those weaknesses start to become their strengths.

Rose’s mother and father are freaking ridiculously good in this story. They are the definition of evil and they do it so well. They bring another element to this book that the first one just didn’t have. They each bring something different to the story and it was really interesting to read.

Like I said the beginning was slow for my but other than that the story had a good flow to it. You kind of have to work to get to the go parts where the author found her groove but if you stick it out it is totally worth it. The plot just keeps building and building. It builds so much that by the time you get to the end you are holding your breath. And what an ending that was. Such a cliffhanger. I can’t wait for the next one….
