Summary according to goodreads
How do you stop an epidemic?
Sloane and James are on the run after barely surviving the suicide epidemic and The Program. But they’re not out of danger. Huge pieces of their memories are still missing, and although Sloane and James have found their way back to each other, The Program isn’t ready to let them go.
Escaping with a group of troubled rebels, Sloane and James will have to figure out who they can trust, and how to take down The Program. But for as far as they’ve come, there’s still a lot Sloane and James can’t remember. The key to unlocking their past lies with the Treatment—a pill that can bring back forgotten memories, but at a high cost. And there’s only one dose.
Ultimately when the stakes are at their highest, can Sloane and James survive the many lies and secrets surrounding them, or will The Program claim them in the end?
I received a copy of this book for review, but that does not influence my opinion.
To put it briefly: AMAZING. One of the best sequels I have ever read. The Program was in the top 3 of the books I read in 2013, and The Treatment was one of most anticipated reads of 2014! So happy to say that this did not disappoint! As much as I loved this series, I liked the way it ended and don't feel that it needed another book (meaning making it a trilogy). Everything that I wanted to happen, happened and all of my questions got answered.
There were so many things that I wasn't expecting, but I did have an idea that one event would happen. Luckily, I was still surprised because it didn't happen the way that I though it would!
And another thing: James. That should speak for itself. He is one of my favourite "love interest" characters because he is funny, charming, but incredibly supportive and strong-willed.
To talk about a physical detail of the book, I loved that when you take of the dust jacket, there is a design on the actually book. This is consistent with the first novel in this series, so I appreciated that aspect. This book left me speechless, so it is hard for me to form sentences to review it. If you haven't read this duology I recommend you do, as they are fast paced novels that grab your attention and keep it the whole time.
PS, big thanks to the author for retweeting and favouriting my fangirl tweets after I finished the book.
