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?

Second books are tough, but Evan's got it down. In fact, those who enjoyed the first book will love this one. It keeps getting better and better. I wouldn't want to live in a society where you either get Marked or go on the run, but I really did love reading about Logan and his friends' adventures. The twists were brilliant, and I didn't want to ever put this book down until I'd figured out what was happening.

The protagonists are bright, smart, and independent-minded. They're the ones who aren't afraid to go against a government that they believe is in the wrong and who will go against all obstacles for their beliefs. Best of all, we get to read this book from several perspectives, allowing us to see how each individual and group moves in on Beacon and how each move builds up into the climax.

Logan is an especially interesting character. After escaping DOME, he's on the run and in the process of trying to rescue his sister, who he'd thought was dead. There are those who view him with awe and want to help him on his journey, but there are also those who hate him for giving the government the excuse they needed to come down hard on the Markless. In the midst of all this, he's really just a teenage boy who has yet to find his place in the world but who knows that he cannot condone what the government is doing.

I absolutely cannot wait to read the next installment in the Swipe series and find out what happens next to our protagonists!
