With short, fast-paced, alternating point-of-view chapters, The Death Code starts several weeks after The Murder Complex ended. Zephyr keeps the secret about Meadow close—that if she dies, The Murder Complex will be destroyed, too. Meadow, desperate to find her brother, father, and little sister, is determined to fearlessly fight to the end, even if it means sacrificing herself and her friends, new and old. The Death Codeintroduces a memorable cast of secondary characters and delivers a vivid and scary thrill ride read.
I would pull out that old “this book is un-put-downable” because this book really un-put-downable. The writing is very fantastic and intense, it had me holding on to every scene. The characters feels so real, I felt tortured when the characters are being tortured, my heart swells with happiness whenever something beautiful happens with them. It’s still has that gruesome, bloody and brutal element that is much better than the first book.
The character development of Meadow and Zephyr is epic! The changes in them as the book progresses is very unpredictable. I don’t know if Zephyr was falling out of love for Meadow because of what is happening to her, I don’t know if Meadow is really loosing it because of all the stuff that just went down. But I love how strong our two main characters are and how they are both holding on to each other, keeping each other sane and standing and fighting. The side characters are also very important on the character building of the Meadow and Zephyr.
The Death Code is THE dystopian novel. It’s the elements of all the awesome books like Hunger Games, Legend, Divergent, you name it! All the best diystopian novels mixed in one book, amazing! Hands down to you Lindsay!
