'When Logan Langly backed out of getting the Mark and went on the run, no one thought he could survive on his own. Without the Mark, you can't buy food, go to the doctor, or use a tablet--you aren't even a citizen.
But when he discovers that his sister is being held in a mysterious hidden prison named Acheron, Logan risks everything to travel through an underground network of the Markless to rescue her.
Logan arrives only to find that Acheron holds more secrets than anyone could have guessed and that all his careful planning is worthless against a government that will do anything to gain absolute control.
It seems there is only one place to turn. But can a banned book with whisper-thin pages and warnings about the real meaning of the Mark really hold the Answer?


Sneak is part of a series, called Swipe, after the first book in this series. This is the second book of the series, something I didn't realise until the end of the book and I had Googled up it.

What was really good about this book is that anyone can just pick it up and start reading from the start. You don't have to be acquainted with Logan's story very well to know his situation. You are pretty much fully briefed in the first few pages of the novel, without Angler going into boring and endless detail.

I liked all the characters, except for one. Erin was a really annoying character for me. She seemed so discriminative and so mistrustful of people without Marks, when she was friends with some of the Markless too! Her character was confusing and, for me, not very thought out or made to be utterly unlikeable.

Angler's writing is really quite phenomenal, I believe. I was intrigued and hooked from the very first pages that I read! The book's concept was amazing, thought-provoking, but not to the point where Angler preached anything. This book provoked some thoughts about discrimination today, and whether or not the world will get to the point that wwe see in Sneak.

I would  give this book a 4 stars out of 5 stars. The plot was quite good and the characters were all amazing, with the exception of Erin. It is suffice to say I will definitely be reading the next book that comes out on May 7th 2013, as well as the first book Swipe.

Keep reading and loving books,

Geraldine
