Release Day Tour [Review] State of Chaos Collapse Series #2 by Summer Lane

Cassidy Hart has had better days.
Her dad is missing. Her friends have been captured. And modern society is pretty much gone, thanks to an EMP that destroyed the technological infrastructure of the United States. 
Surviving in the foothills of California is a challenge, but with the help of former Navy SEAL Chris Young, Cassidy's been able to stay alive.
Until now. Omega, the shadow army arisen from the chaos, won't stop until every single survivor is either under their control or dead. Taken by soldiers and forced into a labor camp, Cassidy must turn the tables on her captors. Escape means everything. Unfortunately, staying out of Omega's crosshairs is easier said than done. 
You can run. 
But you can't hide. 
Cassidy's about to learn that the hard way.

Three words...Romance, action, and adventure

The theme for these novels is a great one indeed. A perfect dystopian novel if I have to say so myself. :) Summer takes the reader to a world that we are all secretly afraid of in the backs of our mind. The one where a foreign military takes over our beloved USA. Summer’s view on the now common-place dystopian idea makes it even a more of a reality.

State Of Chaos is the second book in the Collapse Series. It picks up about 2 months after State Of Emergency ended. Cassidy and Chris are trying to stay hidden from the Omega forces to avoid being arrested and shipped off to a death camp. All the while looking for Chris's family and Cassidy's dad. But soon Cassidy finds herself in a work camp helping harvest food to feed the Omega forces. This novel is about her rescue and Chris and Cassidy's working with the "Freedom Fighters" to take our country back.

Cassidy. It seems as if this female lead character happens to be the most real and vibrant (fictional) person I know. She is so stubborn and sarcastic sometimes all I can do is shake my head. She loves Chris quietly and will do to anything to get back to her loved ones. I was very proud of how far she came in the second book. And Chis. Ex Navy Seal, Chris....long hair, muscular, swoon worthy, Chris. OK that's all I have to say about Chris - you get the picture! Oh yeah! And Chris Hemsworth should play Chris in the movie. Just sayin'! :) And I believe Summer agrees! :)

Sometimes when you read a novel you just connect and for some reason I just connected with these. I love Summers writing style, the characters, and the setting. It all makes for a wonderful series. If you haven't read State Of Emergency go get it now. Then you will be reaching for State Of Chaos, so just go ahead and get both! You will definitely not be disappointed. 

5 Stars!
