    Reading the blurb at Goodreads will spoil you for book one, and we’re still a bit over two weeks out from release day, so I have to be careful about revealing too much.

    If you haven’t started this series yet, the setting is a post-apocalyptic garbage dump, environmentally ruined America run by corporations. Most organic beings outside of humans are genetically-engineered, or altered with cyborg implants.

    Robots and artificial intelligence play a pretty big role. There have been random human mutations – people suddenly getting weird abilities due to, who knows, maybe radiation or other funk in the atmosphere, etc.

    Lemon Fresh plays a MUCH bigger role here. Cricket and Ezekiel are back. Eve is back, only much more stabby. There are new characters, surprises, gut punches, crazy religious shenanigans.

    I LOVED it! Those who loved book one, you should be satisfied with this. Those who haven’t started, read book one, and then this releases June 25th!

    Thank you Netgalley and publisher for providing a digital eARC to read and review. I adored it

    I really enjoyed Lemon Fresh in LifeL1k3. She was a breath of fresh air and I really hurt for her and Ezekial at the end of the first book. So I was dying to check out the sequel where our side kick takes center stage...

    I think the title Dev1at3 totally suits Lemon's story and goes with the LifeL1k3 moniker quite well. I don't hate the cover design. I think in person it would probably be quite stunning in an understated sort of way. I w

    I really enjoyed Lemon Fresh in LifeL1k3. She was a breath of fresh air and I really hurt for her and Ezekial at the end of the first book. So I was dying to check out the sequel where our side kick takes center stage...

    I think the title Dev1at3 totally suits Lemon's story and goes with the LifeL1k3 moniker quite well. I don't hate the cover design. I think in person it would probably be quite stunning in an understated sort of way. I wish it matched LifeL1k3's cover a bit more. They use the same honeycomb shape but side by side they don't feel like they're from the same series if it wasn't for the names.

    For Dev1at3 we pull away from Eve's POV and only follow her in certain climatic moments. And our favorite BFF takes center stage! We pick up where we left off in LifeL1k3... Lemon Fresh, Ezekiel and Cricket are estranged from their girl, Eve. Now they've got to figure out what to do... and circumstances happen that they are separated. I know this is vague but if you want more the premise reveals way more. Suffice to say these three stay close to one another but take their own journey through the wastes. Never fear though this isn't the last we've seen of the lifel1k3s either.

    I read a lot of Jay Kristoff and I have to say one reason is the man knows how to plot. He keeps the pace swift, the characters fun and the plot twisty and moving forward. TBH I'm not always shocked by his twists, and there is a moment in Dev1at3 that felt quite contrived to me, but it was complicated, it was tense and I enjoyed the heck out of it! There are nailings, explosions, chases, rockets, mech battles, shootouts and self harm!! And the villains made me cry and wail in despair for my precious characters that deserve all the love instead of all the abandonment and manipulation they received.

    When I started Dev1at3 I totally jumped on all the POVs! I LOVED it. I wasn't bored or loving one of them over the other. It felt really natural how Lemon came to be parted from Cricket and Ezekiel. Even the bond that forms between her and her captor felt spot on to me. There is a moment for Ezekiel too that made my heart feel crushed for him. We all knew it was coming but you can't help but feel for a machine that has gone through such a soul changing journey.

    Lemon Fresh, Ezekiel and Cricket meet new characters and I universally loved them all! Each one allies with different characters and I was really taken with our little group of Deviates that Lemon meets. Major struck me right away as a powerful figure and I loved how he figured in everything. And Cricket makes a couple of friends that were dynamite!! My absolute favorite, is a robot that totally steals the spotlight due to his bromance with straight-laced Cricket. And even Ezekiel makes the decision to take on another in his chase, brave, stupid and makes total sense. All of this new blood totally enlivened Dev1at3 for me and made the wild ride worth reading.

    Jay Kristoff knows how to rev our engines. He doesn't like for everyone to survive their encounters in his books and Dev1at3 is no different. Sometimes this means skewing events so certain things happen that aren't natural. There was a moment like this and it really irritated me, but it was just a moment. The ending doesn't disappoint but sets us up for the final installment without making Dev1at3 any less of a powerful part of the story.

    -Lemon Fresh!

    I would not be surprised if you said she was your favorite character. And she is the protagonist and goes on a soul searing journey that will break your heart.

    -Cricket's Bromance!

    It doesn't happen right away but he meets the right robot and a connection is made... It totally changes his life and leads to tough choices for our battle bot.

    -Deviates vs. The Brotherhood!

    This is a war I didn't even know I wanted. We explore some key players and then get to be on the sidelines as tensions explode between them.

    -Ezekiel's Realization!

    Such a good lifelike... you really want him to find happiness. But Eve is so mad! And something has got to break...

    -Oh no, its a missile!!

    The finale is incredible and fun and outrageous. I totally loved it and this is the only hint I'm going to give you but yeah, you can't skip this middle book!!

    Dev1at3 is a great sequel to LifeL1k3... in fact, dare I say its better!! Lemon Fresh takes center stage along with our lovelorn Ezekiel and our straight-laced Cricket and takes us on a wild ride to meet more of the denizens involved in the war of the wastes! “Sometimes you don't know you've crossed the line till you're on the other side.”And now I'm ready for the final book of the LifeL1k3 series!! Bring it on!!

    Only halfway through 2018 and this is already my most anticipated novel of 2019 - that is IF it comes out in 2019 which I’m not even sure of 😭 y’all I NEED THIS SO BAD??!!

    Can someone get me a time travel machine pls.

  • ♔ Dark Lordette Jennymort ♔

    I CAN'T BELIEVE I GOT AN ARC OF THIS.

  • ♠️ TABI ♠️

    this is a 100% appropriate reaction to that cover

  • Tara♥ {MindforBooks}

    I've come to the conclusion that (along with a couple of other authors) I should just set up a direct debit out of my account each month to go directly into Jay Kristoff's bank account. This would cut out the middle man and let's face it I'm going to end up buying whatever book is the new release eventually so might as well do it in installments. This is my long ass winded way of saying he is an autobuy and I can't wait for this because I loved

    I need this book more than food and water and air.
