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

Even though this is shelved in our library as Adult Fiction, it feels more like a Young Adult book to me. There is nothing here that a teen reader would have trouble with, and it's definitely appropriate for teens.

A great continuation of the first book, Pure. Lots of engaging characters, but not so overcrowded that you can't remember who's who. Really good science fiction-y science. Exciting action scenes. And a little bit of teen romance (sadly, all cis-het).

The only difficulties I had with the book were in trying to remember what happened in the first book. I feel like it would have been helpful, in the first few chapters of Fuse, to remind the readers who the characters are, their relationships to each other, and what happened in the first book.

This is part two of the "Pure" trilogy. The pace is slower than the first, but is still good. Even though some of the "chapters" are not needed. It stays interesting, but the pace is slowed down.

This book was just as beautifully written as the first one, this one kept you even more on your toes. It was a phenomenal book and you fall in love even more with all of the characters. I would highly recommend this amazing series. EF

Apolyptic as is much of today's SiFI but well done with twists, turns, gore and incredibly durable humans. A worthy read if you do not mind end of the world and struggle against tyranny. I enjoyed

Book Two continues with the fight between the Wretches and the Pures. Partridge is returned to the Dome and further subjected to his father's influence and master plan. Pressia, El Capitan and Bradwell discover clues to the hidden cure and head out on a journey that will take them overseas to unravel the mystery. The battle continues between the Mothers and the Dome. Exciting action and character development.
