If I had to compare the action amount and quality between this book and the one before it, I would say that the second book has a good continuous flow while this one had a good start, pause, then play at the end. They were both okay, but they would be my automatic recommendations unless I knew the person liked "teens/kids with powers" idea. I am not quite sure what distinct genre this would fall into, but I feel like it would be a dystopian/action/suspense mix for sure. This trilogy/series reminded me heavily of Robinson Wells' Blackout, which I found okay but also not the greatest. I wouldn't say the romance is a waste of space, but it really could be better developed. I really do ship Ruby and Cole... sigh.
