Outcasts by Jill Williamson

About the Book
Uncovering the truth could cost them their lives.
Since entering the Safe Lands, Mason has focused on two things: finding a way to free his village from captivity, and finding a cure for the disease that ravages many within the walls of the Safe Lands. After immune-suppressive drugs go missing in the clinic, Mason discovers his coworker, Ciddah, may know more about the Safe Lands than imagined ... and may have an agenda of her own. At the same time, Mason's brother Levi is focused on a way to free the remaining Glenrock captives, while Mason's younger brother Omar decides to take the rebellion against the Safe Lands into his own hands as a vigilante.

Soon all three brothers are being watched closely---and when Mason stumbles onto a shocking secret about the Safe Lands meds, his investigation just might get those closest to him liberated.

My Thoughts
After thoroughly enjoying Captives I was quite excited to start this book! I was expecting to like it as much as the first one but I was wrong, it was even better! Captives had a lot of explaining to do, and the author did it amazingly, but it still took away from the story just a little bit. Such was not the case with this book and instead it was pure awesome from start to finish!
Mason continued to be my favorite brother, with his adorable awkwardness, gentle nature, thirst for knowledge, and his care of those he loves. Levi's character developed more and I found myself liking him more and more. He had so much put on him at such a young age and I was very impressed with  how he handled it all. Also his and Jemma's relationship continued to be so sweet! Omar began to redeem himself finally and even though he still screwed up occasionally he definitely gets points for trying.

So much happened in this book! And I'm not going to spoil any of it for you but there were many secrets and dangerous missions, and you were constantly trying to figure out who was a friend and who was the enemy. I loved every minute of this book and absolutely hated putting it down! Rebels can't come out fast enough for me!
