It seems that all hope is lost. After a devastating betrayal, Ash is captured by the Authorities, who plan to crush her fighting spirit. But they never could have predicted the strength of the hope inside Ash.
Aided by two fierce children, Scarlett and Alex, and a soldier who dares to turn against the system he’s spent his life serving, Ash faces trials worse than ever before in her desperate journey to escape the Sovereign Supreme's tyrannical rule. Ash’s goal now is much bigger than just getting past the border wall and finding what is outside the dark realm of the collapsed city. Fueled by the spark of hope inside each of them, Ash and her companions embark on a perilous quest to do the very thing the Authorities fear most: to start an uprising.
Book 2 in the Fallen Nation Trilogy
Couldn't put it down... This wonderful story of friendship, love, betrayal, and forgiveness really is great. I never wanted to put this down when I was reading it. Grayson is the kind of writer that makes you want to read Fallen Nation way past bedtime. I loved it—you will too.

Grayson Taylor is a great author. If I could be any person in this, I would want to be Ash. She is a wonderful person who is full of love, friendship, forgiveness, and a touch of adventure. Zach has a heart full of goodness, love, and friendship, although he gets into trouble. Scarlett is another favorite of mine. She is a lionhearted girl with a fire of adventure in her blood. Alex is a sweet, adventurous boy.
