Fuse (Pure Trilogy) by Julianna Baggott

"Fuse" is the second installment in the, "Pure" trilogy and it is a huge, HUGE disappointment. I had a extremely difficult time getting into it. It was long winded and at times, I felt lost. Reading this book required a lot of energy and time because I wasn't able to enjoy it, since I had to struggle to recall things (which, I've never really had to to before in previous series).

I was rather annoyed because I enjoyed, "Pure" so much, so to really dislike, "Fuse" was disappointing.  I rather enjoy the character's and the unique story line, so I will be reading the last novel in this trilogy.
It's very imaginative...

The parts that were, entertaining, we excellent. I just felt as though, Baggott could have produced a much better book if she had gotten rid of all the tiresome parts.

I strongly suggest you re-read or skim, "Pure" so that you can get more enjoyment out of, "Fuse" than I did.

Grade: C-


Overview [B&N]

We want our son returned.
This girl is proof that we can save you all. If you ignore our plea, we will kill our hostages one at a time.
To be a Pure is to be perfect, untouched by Detonations that scarred the earth, and sheltered inside the paradise that is the Dome. But Partridge escaped to the outside world, where Wretches struggle to survive amid smoke and ash. Now, at the command of Partridge's father, the Dome is unleashing nightmare after nightmare upon the Wretches in an effort to get him back.
At Partridge's side is a small band of those united against the Dome: Lyda, the warrior; Bradwell, the revolutionary; El Capitan, the guard; and Pressia, the young woman whose mysterious past ties her to Partridge in ways she never could have imagined. Long ago a plan was hatched that could mean the earth's ultimate doom. Now only Partridge and Pressia can set things right.
To save millions of innocent lives, Partridge must risk his own by returning to the Dome and facing his most terrifying challenge. And Pressia, armed only with a mysterious Black Box containing a set of cryptic clues, must travel to the very ends of the earth, to a place where no map can guide her. If they succeed, the world will be saved. But should they fail, humankind will pay a terrible price . .
