Danger descends in the second book of The Internment Chronicles, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Chemical Garden trilogy.

After escaping Internment, Morgan and her fellow fugitives land on the ground to finally learn about the world beneath their floating island home.

The ground is a strange place where water falls from the sky as snow, and people watch moving pictures and visit speakeasies. A place where families can have as many children as they want, their dead are buried in vast gardens of bodies, and Internment is the feature of an amusement park.

It is also a land at war.

Everyone who fled Internment had their own reasons to escape their corrupt haven, but now they’re caught under the watchful eye of another king who wants to dominate his world. They may have made it to the ground, but have they dragged Internment with them?


My Review: Now the series is moving!  The first book seemed to drag for me, but now things are picking up and I'm starting to enjoy the series more. 

Anywho.. Morgan and the gang left Internment and found their way to the ground. And things are much different than they thought. It rains on the ground, apparently there is no weather in the Internment. People are having families, big and small. Going to movies. Going out and having a good time. Its a whole new world for them and to us its just basic life.

It was nice seeing their reactions to this world compared to where they came from. Though they didn't plan on a new King, and possibly starting a war....

I loved the details and can't wait to see if the final book really takes it home!
