Description -
The pulse-pounding sequel to Proxy! Inspired by The Whipping Boy and Feed, this adrenaline-fueled thriller will appeal to fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent.

In the new world led by the Rebooters, former Proxy Syd is the figurehead of the Revolution, beloved by some and hated by others. Liam, a seventeen-year-old Rebooter, is Syd’s bodyguard and must protect him with his life. But armed Machinists aren’t the only danger.

People are falling ill—their veins show through their skin, they find it hard to speak, and sores erupt all over their bodies. Guardians, the violent enforcers of the old system, are hit first, and the government does nothing to help. The old elites fall next, and in the face of an indifferent government, Syd decides it’s up to him to find a cure . . . and what he discovers leaves him stunned.

This heart-stopping thriller is packed with action, adventure, and heroics. Guardian will leave you breathless until the final page.

A fast-paced, thrill-ride of novel full of non-stop action, heart-hammering suspense and true friendship—just as moving as it is exhilarating. Fans of Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider series, James Dashner's Maze Runner, Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking series, and Marie Lu's Legend trilogy will be swept away by this story.


My Rating: 5 stars - I seriously loved it

Review: So I doubt you know this about me, she said knowing fully well she never passes up a chance to tell you all, but I am slightly obsessed with Proxy by Alex London and I have been oh so excited for this sequel! Unfortunately I had a lot of review books that I had to read and so did not read it the day it came out like I planned but it was worth the wait(by the way I totally did just spell that weight and take 3 read through to find it).
So you know how these days a lot of the time you read the first book in a series/trilogy/duology and it's completely awesome and it pulls you in and consumes you and you spend a year obsessively stalking the Internet for every little scrap of info as you patiently(ha) wait for the sequel to FINALLY come out and then a lot of the time it's kind of a disappointment? It's not that it's bad but it's just not quite as good? It's as if the author lost momentum some where? Well not with this book! It is at least as good as the first and, in my opinion, definitely not a disappointment.
 Now I don't want to give away any spoilers or anything for Proxy and honestly I don't want to sit here and write out a long detailed review of why this book is awesome and why you should read it and all the things so I'll just talk about some of my favorite things and then you can read the book, okay?

A Few Of My Favorite Things -
  -Liam - He's no Knox but he is awesome. I wouldn't say that I liked him as much as I liked Knox but it was pretty damn close. He's just a really complex character and yeah I loved him.
  -Syd - Okay Syd had some down moments in this book but that didn't make me love him any less, maybe it even made me love him a little more. He was still himself, sure he was changed and sad and slightly depressed but in the end he didn't let that stop him.
  -The plot - I didn't really know how this book as going to go because honestly when I read Proxy I thought it was a stand alone and I was kinda apprehensive about this but it was awesome. It made total sense and it just added so much to the story. Basically I loved it, are you seeing a pattern here? I am.
 - Twisty - I feel like there were some very interesting twists in this book and I loves me a good twist.
And now I think I am running out of things to say and my brain doesn't feel like cooperating and yeah.

Your turn! Read the book! READ IT!

Would I Recommend This? uh, duh!
Who To? All the people!
Will I read more from this author(or series)? Uh....DUH!!!

Okay, seriously I think I need to sleep and I'm scheduling this before I sleep so that I don't end up making myself rewrite the whole thing, okay?
