Sarah Harian: A Vault of Sins Chaos Theory #2

Hey re not trying to escape sociopaths and make believe water But there s also a sense of desperation like they re afraid everything will be ripped away from them againThere s to Evalyn s friendship with Val too After what happened to Jace Val s probably even worse off than any of them et she s holding it together better than Evalyn or Casey Evalyn tries to show her over and over again that she s not alone and she has someone to lean on but Val s the one who ends up helping Evalyn deal with her issues Seeing how strong she is and knowing just how much pain she s in read the novella Our Broken Sky to fully understand Val s side is kind of painful and I wanted to hug her and make it betterThe technology of the Compass Room fascinated me A lot of it is explained from the Bots to the trigger objects to the Vault The area beneath each Room that holds all the data recorded and not just what goes on in the Rooms themselves To say any would give away a good portion of the book but what s revealed adds layers and complexity to an already twisted storyThe ending ties up most of the loose ends but not all of them and they re dangling enough to be frustrating I m enjoying this futuristic world and I hope I get to go back soon I received this E book for free via NetGalleyPenguin in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my reviewGenre Speculative New AdultRating 30My ThoughtsA Vault of Sins picks up pretty much where The Wicked We Have Done left off Even though Evalyn Ibarra Casey Hargrove and Valerie Crane have survived their experiences in the Compass Room they are far from free and one misstep will lead to their conviction for their previous crimes that got them sent to the CR in the first placeFull Review posted Gizmos Reviews Recvd 09082014 via NetGalleyPenguin Expected publication September 16th 2014 by PenguinInterMix This is a crazy crazy series and I m totally loving it Now I ve kind of messed up my own reading order and totally skipped Our Broken Sky because when I started reading A Vault of Sins I thought I was reading Our Broken Sky I even emailed my friends and was all like Um guys this book isn t focused on Valerie like at all and then they were like Um Liz Henry and June you re a dorkou re reading the wrong book and I was all like OMG ou re right So later I will read Our Broken Sky which is a novella based on Valerie who is a bad as hell character and totally deserves to be readAs for A Vault of Sins this is the second full length book after The Wicked We Have Done In TWWHD I gave it a five star review I loved the horror and mystery with a splash of sci fi In A Vault of Sins it kind of lost me just a smidge This book went to the sci fi spectrum than I like for my own personal tastes There were points in the story that were really kind of crazy for me to follow but I More reviews and no fluff on the blog A Vault of Sins presents an interesting challenge to review although it retains the gritty and mature flavor of the first book it did feel very much like a sopho middle child in terms of story and character growth As well heavy parallels to Hunger Games did make this feel like an already read title And et it is an engaging read even if little happens until the endStory Evalyn is on the outside free of the Compass Room but still laboring under survivor s remorse The world is evaluating if the Compass Room glitched or if it performed as it sho.

A Vault of Sins is the second book in the Chaos Theory series by Sarah Harian Just like book one this one grabbed m In A Vault of Sins we delve deeper into the workings of the Compass Room and meet those who are determined to expose the truth We spend time with the survivors as they battle the government and try to deal with the emotional toll all of this has created It was fast paced fascinating and had this reader holding her breath Harian further develops the relationship between Evalyn and Casey Valarie and Evalyn struggle with what they did wrong and suffer survivor s guilt They readily accept that they should have died in the Compass Room but are fighting for those who should have walked I was happy to see the characters fleshed out and while the romance continues it is a side dish to the overall ARC We still have unanswered uestions and I am anxious for the final bookFull review posted at Caffeinated copy received from publisherThis review was originally posted at Caffeinated Book Reviewer 45 stars In the last book we watched Evalyn be sentenced to the Compass Room A simulated location to test the morality of the convicts placed inside It is supposed to help them determine whether a convict is rotten to the core or if they are actually good She and a couple of other convicts were able to trip up the system and get out alive This book starts a month later We watch as Evalyn tries to go on with her life knowing that any day now she will be called back in to be judged for her actions that put her in the Compass Room to begin withI was a little weary going into this one because as far as I was concerned I was okay with the story ending at book one Sorta like the Hunger Games I was totally fine with the first one being it And just like the Hunger Games I still really enjoyed the seuel Evalyn is damaged from her time in CR She has nightmares about all the death she saw She s been told to keep out of the public eye and to shut off all contact with the two surviving convicts that she befriended while in the CR Evalyn s way of coping with is all is to remain sedated under a concoction of liuor and to paint those who didn t make it out of CR She s not going to forget about what happened in the room and how good people were murdered by this so called justice system She knows her days are numbered until she s called back but she has no idea how soon that time will come There was always something happening in this story Even though it s about how broken Evalyn is after CR there is still some fight left in her You see her start to pull herself together and reform herself into a fighter a survivor The author introduces new characters to help support Evalyn and her mission to reveal the CR for what it really is I was engrossed in the story from the moment I started to read it My only issue was that there were a couple of parts where the story sort of jumps forward in time abruptly One case is a vision that Evalyn see s and it isn t revealed until later that it was such but there was no indication that this was anything other than another lapse in time I found myself rereading certain parts of the book trying to figure out what just happened and that sort of pulled me out of the story some Granted I did read an ARC and things could change before it goes to print This is a great story The characters are not innocent There are times where Every Good Girl you are going to dislike them for their actions or their In her stunning New Adult debut The Wicked We Have Done Sarah Harian introduced readers to the Compass Room a twisted experimental jail where the guilty and the innocent suffer alike But breaking out was only the beginningEven though she’s escaped twenty twoear old Evalyn Ibarra is anything but free She’s desperate to return to a life that no longer exists but pr.
