"Engel makes good use of her setting; the fight for survival on the cusp of winter stokes the sense of danger in a way that matches Ivy's roiling feelings, and the love story moves with the slow-growing heat that Ivy needs." -- Kirkus Reviews

Beyond the fence . I am still alive. Barely.

My name is Ivy Westfall. I am sixteen years old and a traitor. Three months ago, I was forced to marry the president's son, Bishop Lattimer--as all daughters of the losing side of the war are sold off in marriage to the sons of the winners. But I was different. I had a mission-to kill Bishop.

Instead, I fell in love with him.

Now I am an outcast, left to survive the brutal savagery of the lands outside of civilization. Yet even out here, there is hope. There is life beyond the fence. But I can't outrun my past. For my actions have set off a treasonous chain of events in Westfall that will change all of our fates--especially Bishop's.

And this time, it is not enough to just survive...

This duo of books (along with "The Book of Ivy") set in a post-nuclear-war future tells an engaging and satisfying story. There's a bit too much exposition and info dump in the beginning, but then things get going. The types of action--in descending amount--include internal, interpersonal, and external, with a nice balance of character development, romance, and tension and suspense. I enjoyed myself.

Ivy Westfall is now beyond the fence and she is alone. She was abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer. Now she must find a way to survive. This is the sequel to “The Book of Ivy”. I really liked the first book because it was really captivating and interesting. I was hoping this book would be a good sequel but unfortunately I was wrong. In this book, Ivy becomes a bigger brat than she already was and when Bishop returns, she's always turning away from him. It's an on-and-off relationship and it's really annoying. Bishop is trying really hard to get Ivy back but she always walks away. She wouldn't even talk to him. She was really annoying and I ended up getting frustrated. At one point I didn't want to read it anymore but I decided to finish it. I personally thought that Ivy became a big brat but the plot line was what kept me going. 3/5 stars.

I loved the survival aspects of this sequel, and the relationships and characters were refreshingly complex for a YA dystopia. That said, the finale didn't feel built up enough, and it started to get a bit preachy at the end, and the whole Mark Laird-as-recurring-antagonist idea went on too long, but overall it was a fairly solid read.

A nice conclusion to the story, I think these books have a lot to say about mature, loving relationships that other teen books omit.
