My Review: Each book just gets better!
I was really excited to read this book and find out what would happen next to Logan, and I sure wasn't disappointed. In fact, I actually like Sneak way better than Swipe and I really liked that book!
The action is pulsing, and I love how the story switched from one scene to another. There were things happening everywhere, and no sooner had the author thrown one characters off a figurative cliff, then the scen would flip over to another scene where I would become engrossed in that plight, to find that they would be left in a You-can't-leave-them-now moment! I loved it, the well crafted cliffhangers had me glued to the pages and reading when I was supposed to be doing something else...It was that good.
Mr. Angler did a terrific job of creating a strange and frightening world that is all too realistic. Every single one of the characters' sides of the story were engaging and realistic, no one truly knows who they can trust.
In this story I felt like there was alot more action with Logan on the run, plus there were all sorts of secret codes and I loved how they used old signs that were akin to the hobo sings of the 1930's and the ancient ichthus. There was also more of a connection with the characters coming across seeds of Christianity, which made this book very profound with the demonstrative way they were used.
All in all a wonderful page-turing read that left me waiting in suspense for the next installment. In my personal opinion this book was better than the first, though I totally recommend reading the other books too as it was amazing as well! A gripping read that is a high speed chase of action and fictional political intrigue, and a courageous hero who will do anything to get his sister back.
I received this book through Team Novel Team in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!

About the book:
In a future United States under the power of a charismatic leader, everyone gets the Mark at age thirteen. The Mark lets citizen shop, go to school, and even get medical care—but without it, you are on your own. Few refuse to get the Mark. Those who do . . . disappear.
Logan Langly went in to get his Mark, but he backed out at the last minute. Now he’s on the run from government agents who will stop at nothing to capture him. But Logan is on a mission to find and save his sister, Lily, who disappeared five years ago on her thirteenth birthday, the day she was supposed to receive her Mark.
Logan and his friends, a group of dissenters called the Dust, discover a vast network of the Unmarked, who help them travel safely to the capital city where Lily is imprisoned. Along the way, the Dust receives some startling information from the Markless community, opening their eyes to the message of Christianity and warning that humanity is now entering the End of Days.
When the Dust finally arrives in the capital, it seems that all their careful planning is useless against a government that will do anything to bend its citizens to its will. Can the gentle words Logan has found in a tattered, banned Bible really stand against the most powerful military the world has ever known? Can Logan even sacrifice his own freedom, choosing to act through faith alone?
