Synopsis from Goodreads: 
Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby “Leader”, but she knows what she really is: a monster.

When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children’s League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America’s children—and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts—has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future—and who now wouldn’t recognize her.

As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam—and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart—she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?

My Review: 
I'm trying to keep this spoiler free and I keep failing. This is my 3rd time. XD
GODS OF OLYMPUS. I can't even start this review. This book took me a really long time to get into, like about 50 pages, but that because I was reading other stuff, so that doesn't count. I was about halfway through and I marathoned it all in one day. In this book, they introduce some new characters: Vida and Jude. Vida is freaking amazing. She has awesome blue hair (KAROU), is a blue, and can seriously kick ass. Jude, as a 15 year old (at the end) is incredibly mature. He knows how to keep care of his powers, and is really sweet. Honestly, he reminded me of Zu. Well, sort of.
Bracken's writing, once again, kept me on my seat. I was reading this in class (SHHH), and my friend next to me literally had to pull me back on my seat when I was reading it. The Darkest Minds was action packed, but Never Fade was that times like, 100. Awesome action filled a lot of the book, and I really enjoyed that.
The ending though...

Final Rating: 



  1. I loved it as well! Although I did prefer The Darkest Minds. :)
