The Escape by Shoshanna Evers Review

The Escape, Book 2 in the Pulse Trilogy

In Book Two of the erotic dystopian Pulse Trilogy, Jenna escapes New York City only to be tracked down by a soldier who might be her only hope of survival.
Jenna doesn’t know if she believes what Emily and Mason told her—that America is rebuilding and a better life awaits her outside of Manhattan. But with the power grid down and no connection to the outside world, Jenna will die if she stays at Grand Central’s FEMA camp, selling her body to soldiers.
Private Ken Barker is sent to capture Jenna when she escapes—but Jenna knows he’s one of the good guys and tries to seduce him into joining her. Their passionate sex kindles something even stronger than lust between them, and when Barker goes back to Grand Central he sees the horrors there with new eyes.
Now it’s his turn to escape the city, and he knows he must take Jenna with him or she’ll die at the camp. On the road, they’ll start a new life together, hoping against hope that the electricity between them will prove more than just a spark—that together they might finally light up their dark nights.

But with her growing need for Trent, and the danger the women of the Tracks face—Clarissa will have to gather everyone together to fight the rule of the soldiers who keep them prisoner. Could their struggle for freedom—and love—mean an escape from this dystopian nightmare?

The Escape

This is a dystopian, almost apocalyptic series. An EMP has gone off shutting everything down in the US. Most of the population has died.

Book one was pretty good so I'm finally on to book two. Book one was about a couple escaping New York. Martial law is in effect, and the ones in charge are cruel and insane. Book two gives us glimpses into what that couple is doing now as well as other escapees and the camp from which they broke out.

I didn't like book two as much because I feel the story is becoming too broad maybe. By the end of book two, I felt like the third book would not be enough to finish all that was started in book two. The series arc feels like it's just going to get bigger instead of heading toward a conclusion. There may be too much going on for me to feel the connection I felt with book one.

I did like how the storyline makes you think about things you never would in our current world. All the things we would google search and socks. It brought up points that I never would have thought like how many foods do not have viable seeds in order to grow more because of genetic engineering.
"I'm thinking how strange it is, how perfectly normal people have become prostitutes, thieves, rapists, and murderers. How did that happen?"
I have no idea exactly which direction the storyline is going but it appears to be war.

If you're looking a end of the world type read that's erotic and occasionally dark themed (flashes of nonconsensual sex and torture), you should check this out.
