Journey to Territory M by L.J. Epps
Synopsis from Goodreads
Emma Whisperer’s journey continues in this sequel to the Extinction series. Emma, the last eighteen-year–old in Territory L, finally escapes Territory L and makes it into Territory M. She tries to find her niece, Abigail, and searches for the leader of Territory M to see if the walls can come down. She brings two friends with her on her journey to finish what she started back in Territory L.
Emma hides out, trying not to get caught. Who can she trust? Will they find Abigail? Is she still alive? Will they find the newbie camp? Will they find out who the leader of Territory M is? Will the leader help them bring the walls down?
Emma thought escaping from Territory L would solve all of her problems. She soon finds out that escaping to Territory M is not all she envisioned it would be. President Esther, Rich, and the leader of Territory M have more in store for Emma than she bargains for.
Take a ride with them as their adventure begins in an abandoned college where they meet up with some unruly characters. Will these people, known as the runaways, be friends or foes?
Emma and her friends—old and new—find themselves searching for places to hide out from President Esther and her henchman Rich, all the while trying to find the leader of Territory M.
Take a ride with Emma as she finds some much-needed answers.
I felt this book, compared to the first, had a little bit more going on. I’m enjoying how the story is progressing and find myself still engaged in Emma’s story. In this book, she escapes into territory M with Eric and Julian. Her niece Abigail is taken away by President Esther and Emma is hoping to find her. She meets some others along the way and her goals are to find Abigail and talk to the leader of M.
Emma was more annoying in this book. She’s becoming careless and selfish. She’s taking more risks in this territory and is continually putting herself and her friends in danger. I’m not sure if she is supposed to appear brave or fearless, but I just see her as reckless.
I’m curious to see how the final book wraps things up and see what Emma accomplishes. I’m not too concerned with Emma’s well-being and don’t really care where she ends up. I still find this alternative future fascinating and the story entertaining. I’ll be completing the last book for #OWLsReadathon and plan to post my review towards the end of April. If you enjoyed the first book, I feel it’s worth continuing the story.
Thanks for reading!
