Ok, I love this series sooooooo much!!! This is book 2 of the ‘Time to Die’ series, and I absolutely LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I know the first book, ‘A Time to Die’, sounds really sketchy, but it’s actually quite clean.

The books are about a world that know when they will die. Every single person has a clock that will tells them how many days, hours and seconds they have left to live. (Weird right?) The books are very clean but are survival books so there is a lot of violence. Like A LOT!!!! But I think these are great books for TEENAGERS!!! Twelve and up’ I am putting my foot down on this.

Over all, I have read the first two books and I LOVE THEM!!!!!! I highly suggest these books to teenagers and probably adults too. I hope this review was helpful! Love ya!!!! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • This is a great book for teens and adults
  • Totally awesome adventure!!!


  • The book is about survival… soooooo… blood and violence show up a lot!

What happens when you live longer than you wanted to?

Parvin Blackwater wanted to die, but now she’s being called to be a leader. The only problem is, no one wants to follow.

The Council uses Jude’s Clock-matching invention to force “new-and-improved” Clocks on the public. Those who can’t afford one are packed into boxcars like cattle and used for the Council’s purposes.

Parvin and Hawke find themselves on a cargo ship of Radicals headed out to sea. What will the Council do to them? And why are people suddenly dying before their Clocks have zeroed-out?
