Surrender by Elana Johnson is the kind of book you want a sequel to be: fast-paced, well-written and even better than the first. Elana Johnson has created a world in which struggle is palpable, you are invested in the characters, and you have to know what happens next.

Surrender continues where Possession left off; however, if you are expecting Viv and Jag to be the focus, you will be disappointed. The story is about Rainne, daughter of the Director, and Gunner, a boy with multiple abilities that are very valuable. Johnson is incredibly good at building characters that are interesting and deep. You believe in their struggles and will root for them late into the night as you rapidly flip the pages.

The plot is fast-paced and action-packed as Rainne and Gunner try to figure out what is right. Both of them have matches as set by the Thinkers, but there is something between them just the same. The story is full of intrigue, as you never quite know who truly is part of the rebellion and who is working for the Director.

Surrender is an intense read that will leave you on the edge of your seat right up to the very alst page.
