There is an absolute ton of stuff going on with this instalment; where Intransigent was very focu
sed, Hostile takes us out into the big wide world again where miraculously some survivors are still surviving and there are things just as bad as the Arvies lurking in the shadows. With Abi’s serum course completed she finds that she is opened up to more than being just a killing machine, but the power she holds is desperate to come to the surface with her trying desperately to keep it at bay. The power to harm also has the power to heal potentially placing her in greater danger if the powers that be come to understand the true extent of what she has become. Whilst I was initially a little let down with how easily Abi had allowed herself to be captured that was quickly replaced as little by little she starts to gain the upper hand and of course the story would have taken a very different turn if she remained undiscovered! This continues to be a strong series and again I read it in less than a day as it drew me in completely. There was only one little part for me which I wasn’t too keen on, but with it only being 2 pages out of the 4 books, i’m not letting it impact on how much I loved reading Hostile. I’m just glad I don’t have to wait too long for book 5!
