The Rule of Many by Ashley Saunders and Leslie Saunders (The Rule of One #2)

Publication Info: Published May 7, 2019 by Skyscape. I listened to the Audio edition through my Kindle Unlimited subscription. Other editions available.

Summary: At the end of the last book, the twins, Ava and Mira, escaped to Canada. There, they found a group of rebels and their previously unknown to them maternal grandmother, Rayla. Rayla is also a member of the rebel group.

They now live in Canada in relative safety, despite some protests against them, until an incident puts them in danger and they are on the run again. They decide to head back to Texas to fight the evil governor for the rights of all multiples.

Comments: I didn’t like The Rule of Many nearly as much as the first book, The Rule of One. The whole book felt rushed and condensed and may have been better split into two making this a trilogy. But then, the book set wouldn’t have been a twin, would it?

There were so many characters and plot lines that nothing felt fully developed. I would have liked more background on their grandmother and the character named Zee. Owen, the guy who just jumped into the story line for no obvious reason other than to serve as comic relief, just never “fit” for me.

Overall, I was let down by this sequel. My suggestion is, read the first book and skip the second. However, if you like a lot of fast action and don’t care about character development, you may like this book better than I did.

Genre: Apocalyptic and Dystopian Fiction.

My Rating: 2 STARS.
