The following ratings are out of 5: Romance: 💗💗💗 Heat/Steam: N/A Story/Plot: 👏👏👏👏👏 World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎🌏 Character development: 🤓🥸😎😤😳 The setting: The United States and Mexico The Characters: Susan (Jinx) Marshall – Seventeen years old, she took off with her family after bank bombings all over the country were blamed on her father and step-father and the world was falling into chaos. Since she was young Jinx was trained by her survivalist father in just about everything it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse, or what is actually happening in the world so she is more prepared than most teens. Though her main talent is computer hacking. Mackenna Novak - Teen aged stepsister to Jinx. Her father is a former military man that worked for the largest bank in the U.S. and was framed for the bombings. Mackenna wants to be an investigative journalist at some point so she looks at everything as a story and she is intelligent. She gets along well with Jinx. The book alternates between her and Jinx’s points of view. Toby Novak - Brother of Mackenna, he was in college prior to the bombings. Their group (family) is on the run from “The Opposition” (the political party of President Ammon Carver) who basically stole the election. Ammon Carver’s mother brings the President’s daughter Annika to join them, trying to save her. Toby falls for her but she ends up going back to her father right away. Toby changes after that and starts being a bit shifty. Gus Navarro – worked with Jinx’s father. Navarro was sent away by Jinx’s mother because she caught him with a Satellite phone and she thinks he was working for The Opposition which in addition to trying to capture them is creating a police state. He and Jinx were starting to fall for each other when he left. However he returns in this book right when the real traitor who framed both Jinx’s father and her stepfather for the crimes (including bombing American banks and killing over 2000 people). Gus has secrets and his background is not really known. Harold “Terminus” Partridge – Jinx’s hacker friend that betrayed her in the first book. He returns and helps them in this book. Mackenna has a bit of a crush on Terminus. The story is definitely engrossing. I like the premise and this book is less political than the first, though it didn’t bother me in the first book. Other than the fact “The Opposition” is basically the American Government and they are out to get our main characters. Jinx’s little brother is kidnapped by the Government and all Jinx and Mackenna really care about is getting him back safely. Jinx is able to figure out her fathers key which is a computer program that will release all the bank money that was thought to be destroyed in the bombings (or something like that), and the Opposition knows that they have it. Also it seems that every where they go, people are keeping secrets from them. I hate in books when the characters find out some of the secrets then don’t tell each other. It seems very odd to me. Mackenna found out some things about Navarro and she also knows that her brother is acting very strangely but she doesn’t mention it to Jinx. I hate when that happens. The two of them seem to be sticking together in this quest, though Jinx thinks the whole group is together but when Mackenna finds out these secrets she doesn’t tell Jinx so they can get to the bottom of things. Though I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the turns this book took. There was futuristic technology terrific settings/locations and I loved Mackenna’s chapters and the way she had headlines and clips of news and they were sited as Letters from the second civil war. The book did well in showing how people have high political ideals but when push comes to shove the politicians and leaders end up being flawed on both sides. Every time I vote for president it seems the choice is between the lesser of two evils. The book had so much action and went from place to place, it seemed to be non-stop action, but it does take place over many months of time. This would make a great movie or mini-series. It seems almost like a Jason Bourne action adventure movie, except Jinx is Jason. She has one goal, to get her brother back and they are being chased and infiltrated by evil forces throughout the book but they keep pushing towards the goal. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Blog|Goodreads|Facebook|Instagram|Twitter|BookBub

    i LOVED the fast paced action in this book! I think that there could have been another book after this to explain even more but I don’t mind the ending too much anyway. If you like action books, go for this!!!!!

Jinx's parents and MacKenna's dad have all played a fairly active role in the current hellscape that was the United States, so it could really be just about any faction out to get them. Jinx's father was a big doomsday prepper, and had aligned himself with the eerily relevant and terrible political party at the helm, at least until he realized their intentions. So, everyone is on the hunt for the group, as Jinx is the last living link to her father's knowledge. I read this the day before the election, which maybe wasn't a great plan. Things get dark in this book, and it is all too easy to see how. MacKenna's chapters delve more deeply into the questions of how the country got to such a place, and it's just such a scary comparison to current events that it's even more unsettling. "What if, in the end, political parties are incapable of putting a stop to the injustices they themselves are busy creating?" Of course we're rooting for Jinx and MacKenna and their family and friends to make it out alive, but it's horrifying when you see how many would not be. And that's the crux: the heroes may end up victorious, but what is the cost? Jinx and MacKenna have to navigate all kinds of ugly no-win scenarios, fight their way through some very intense situations, all for the hopes of saving their brother and just maybe, stopping a war. Bottom Line:  Even more intense than book one, this was an incredibly solid finale to a strong duology that felt so very pertinent to current events.

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and Inkyard Press. Gonna be honest with you. Reading this duology so close to the US election was not an entirely comfy situation but we'll worth it. Day One is stunning. Susan has claimed herself as Jinx and MacKenna wants answers. It starts with the hunt to get Charles back and a series of increasingly more horrifying choices. It left me shaken but hopeful. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and Inkyard Press. Gonna be honest with you.

    This book was such a fast paced action book and I throughly enjoyed it. I do wish it was a trilogy instead of a duolgy though. I feel like there could be more to tell.

    Talk about an action packed book. There was So much going on at all times. So many different pieces all moving together it was hard to imagine a bigger picture. Characters did seem to pop up from seemingly no where though which did bother me a bit. I loved loved the politics side of it. It was very insightful as a look into power hungry people. It was very refreshing for the romance to be barely there in these books. I only realised halfway through this book that the only character with a person Talk about an action packed book.

Everyone else just seemed to do the same thing over and over again and by the second book it got a bit boring. (Especially Nevero, his only personality trait was to be moody) I thought this was a duology but the ending seemed to have been left open for a sequel? Way too much happened in this book for me to remember what happens if another book comes out. I’m leaving this book unrated for now cause I honestly have no clue what I think of it? I need processing time.

    I was hoping to enjoy this; disaster stories are my jam, after all. And it's not bad, per se. It's a little chaotic; things keep happening, one after another, and our characters are flung from one situation to the next without much time to recover in between. There are allies and amazing tech everywhere you look; I was very rarely worried about them, because people kept turning up to help them. It's interestingly written, with a few good twists, but it just wasn't enough for me, I'm afraid. I'm g I was hoping to enjoy this; disaster stories are my jam, after all. And it's not bad, per se.

    Day Zero by Kelly deVos is one of those review copies I never quite got around to reading last year. However, one of the benefits of not reading a book promptly is not having to wait for the sequel. Instead, you can read both the original and the sequel back to back. This was my approach to Day Zero and its sequel, Day One. A funny thing happened when I finished one and started the other, however. It quickly became apparent that the version of Day Zero I read had some major changes made to it bef Day Zero by Kelly deVos is one of those review copies I never quite got around to reading last year. However, one of the benefits of not reading a book promptly is not having to wait for the sequel. Instead, you can read both the original and the sequel back to back. This was my approach to Day Zero and its sequel, Day One. A funny thing happened when I finished one and started the other, however. It quickly became apparent that the version of Day Zero I read had some major changes made to it before final publication. My version of Day Zero revolved around Jinx and her stepsiblings, Tyrell and Makeeba Anderson, who just happened to be Black and from Atlanta. Let me tell you that when reading a political thriller, the entire context of the story changes a lot when two of the main characters are Black and from the south. As 2020 showed the world, their experiences dealing with the police are completely different than a white person’s experiences. While not perfect and definitely in need of some sensitivity reader feedback, I liked the version of Day Zero I read. Ms. deVos uses Tyrell and Makeeba to address police brutality and systemic racism before the world acknowledged it. Even better, she acknowledges that the Anderson siblings come from wealth but that wealth does not protect them from racial prejudice. The story has a completely different feel when Tyrell and Makeeba Anderson from Atlanta become Toby and MacKenna Novak from Denver. Suddenly, the politics of the story, which is the entire plot, are much less inclusive and incomplete. The thing is, I rather liked the politics in my version of Day Zero. It is all too easy to envision 45 doing something as extreme as declaring a national emergency and calling the military to step into police roles. Even better, the opposition addresses what could happen if we fully adopted socialism while addressing racial barriers and cultural roadblocks long established by the founders of the country. It makes for a prescient story, a year ahead of the rest of the world. Except, that is not the route Ms. deVos and her editors ultimately chose. As I did not read the final version of Day Zero, I can’t say whether I liked it. I can extrapolate, however, based on my reaction to Day One, which is not favorable. The story itself loses a lot of timeliness and gravitas when Makeeba goes from being a strong, politically aware Black young woman to MacKenna, a rather selfish, impetuous white girl of privilege. Plus, Jinx is not nearly as commanding and forceful in the sequel as she was in the first book. In Day One, she lets others dictate her actions rather than taking the initiative. This is not the Jinx we get to know in the first book, and there again, the story suffers as a result. As a result, much of Day One becomes an exercise in suspension of disbelief as the story takes one outlandish turn after another. By the time someone we thought dead in the first novel makes an appearance, the whole thing has become so ridiculous as to be disappointing. Again, I have no idea if I would feel similarly about Day Zero in its end form, but I do imagine my feelings would be less positive than they were simply because having key characters to help draw attention to systemic racism in a political thriller is a massive gamechanger to the story. I have never had a review copy change SO much from the published novel, and the changes made are, in my opinion, a poor choice.

In the first book Day One By. Kelly Devos P. 471 Format: Print/Audiobook Rating: **** ********************** Day One is the second book in the Day Zero duology.

It is also told from the perspective of Jinx’s stepsister, MacKenna, an aspiring journalist. Also, Gus, a boy who has had a crush on Jinx for years and who promised her father to help her to survive. In the first book we are introduced to the two main political parties The Spark and The Opposition. The second book gets you up close and personal to the heads of the parties. Jinx’s parents were heavily connected to both and the plot naturally gives you an insider look at the people behind the politics. The book is extremely pessimistic about human nature, and it is also eerily foretelling of what is currently happening in the United States. There was one scene of the book that caused a panic attack. All I will say is why does it always happen to California? Also, why do I still live in California if it always happens to us? In the first book the teenagers are mostly on their own. They are the star of their own show. In Day One they are being used as pawns by adults. I absolutely hated that the boys were pulled into secret meetings and the girls were told to go in their rooms and wait to be told what to do. It was sexist and demeaning - and exactly what would happen. As a reader my blood was boiling, I also got exactly why it was written that way. The book did not blow me away. However, it was well written with unique and detailed characters. The duology is a quick read and will make you question politics even more. Although, I hope we figure to the mess we are in before we get to the utter chaos of Day One.

    this is the second in a series about two step-sisters who are trying to find their little brother and avoid being killed by opposing political forces in this post-apocalyptic adventure. I really enjoyed the author's writing style (obviously because this is book two) although at times the story so closely mirrored some of our current political extremes that it was frightening. I would give this one 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ this is the second in a series about two step-sisters who are trying to find their little brother and avoid being killed by opposing political forces in this post-apocalyptic adventure.

    If you are looking for a super fast paced ya action book with political intrigue and mystery then this is a great book for you. If you're looking for a lot of character depth and descriptions it is not. I personally loved it. Its easy to get into and just keep reading because the story marches right along and you get sucked in. The only downside to this book was I felt like it could have been a trilogy to explain things a bit more. Here's hoping there's a novella in the future.

    I wish this book had another coming. But this was a great ending to this two book series. I loved the outcome and the characters and I was blown away!! I need this as a movie or tv series!! I loved this from the beginning and the pacing is so fast that it was over as soon as I started!! If you loved book one this one is going to knock your socks off.

    Once again, fast paced and epic! Not a lot of in depth character arc but you’re still connected and on the edge of your seat. Got to know the girls a bit better. This is the kind of book I’m looking for. Matches up nicely with my movie preferences as well. Also mad props for that recap! Thanks netgalley. All opinions are my own.
