The remnant of Glenrock has been scattered. But they are not beaten.
The Safe Lands have long kept the true meaning of Liberation secret from their people. But after being sentenced to Liberation themselves, Mason and Omar soon discover the truth.
Levi watched his brothers public sentencing and tries to hold out hope they are still alive, He is forced to focus his attention elsewhere, however, when his new wife, Jemma, is captured and made the Safe Lands newest Queen. His only choice to save Jemma may be to take up Omars old role of undercover vigilante, leading the rebels in their quest to overthrow the government. But will Levis new role be enough?
Meanwhile, Jemmas sister, Shaylinn, is ready to give birth to the Safe Lands children but not even Ciddah is sure they can be delivered safely in the midst of a rebellion. And Mason must face the fact Omars illness could be fatal.
If they can all unite their efforts, together they may be able to expose the Safe Lands lies to the people. But if they fail, they will all surely die.

alisaUtahAge: 35-44Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Overall slow going for meMay 29, 2014alisaUtahAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2I was intrigued by the premise of the book Outcasts. I admit science-fiction/futuristic books are not really my choice of books, but this one showed some promise. I guess in requesting it, I didn't realize it was a series, so I hadn't read the first one. This posed somewhat problematic for the first third of the book, because I wasn't familiar with "the world" or the terminology used. After the first third, I had somewhat caught on to most of what had happened in previous books, but it was still challenging when they referred to previous incidents.
Overall, the book was just okay for me. Maybe since this category of genre isn't my normal choice, that made it longer and more drawn out for me. The only character I really identified with was Shaylinn in her choices that had been taken away from her through higher powers. I enjoyed the escape near the end, but several of the story plot lines were confusing to me. This may be because it is in a series and I hadn't read the first, and probably won't read additional. I did find the technology and weapons and lifestyle to be quite interesting though. It took quite awhile for me to read the book, which usually means it's a struggle for me. Can't rate this one super high.
