Publisher's Summary

Born to a death sentence in a near-future America, rebellious sisters herald a revolution - if they can survive.

Twins Ava and Mira Goodwin defy the Rule of One simply by existing. The single-child law, ruthlessly enforced by Texas’s Governor Roth, has made the sisters famous fugitives and inspirations for the resurgent rebellion known as the Common. 

But the relentless governor and his implacable Texas State Guard threaten that fragile hope, as Roth consolidates his power in a bid for ultimate authority. 

As Ava and Mira relinquish the relative safety of their Canadian haven to stand against Roth, new allies arise: Owen, a gifted young programmer, impulsively abandons his comfortable life in a moment of compassion, while Zee, an abused labor camp escapee, finds new purpose in resistance. 

The four will converge on Dallas for a reckoning with Roth, with nothing less than their destinies - and the promise of a future free from oppression - on the line. 

Disobedience means death. But a life worth living demands rebellion.

Almost perfect

This is one of many few books where I'm glad there is a third one. Wrapping it up at 2 would have been too much so I'm glad that didn't happen. The story continues to be entertaining and captivating! Loved the introduction of Alexander and Theo...but my 4 star rating is due to Owen. I found him extremely obnoxious and kind of there for unnecessary comic relief. I sped through his chapters because I really had zero interest in him so here's hoping there's less of him ahead. The audible voice did NOT help this in any way.

Owen ruined it for me

The first book was much better. I dreaded Every time a chapter was from Owen's point of view. He got better throughout the book but he took away from the whole experience.

The Rule of Many

The story was riveting at times and other times very predicable. The ending was very disappointing.

Can't wait for more!

Picking up where The Rule of One leaves off, The Rule of Many is action packed and full of obstacles. The story moves quickly, alternating between multiple points of view, revealing many pieces of the puzzle that left the reader wondering from the previous book. Unfortunately, I hadn't realized this story wasn't going to be wrapped up via this novel, so I was bummed when the book came to an end and nothing was resolved. I need more!

All three narrators did a great job bringing the characters to life.
