Surviving her apprenticeship was just the first step. Now that Dara has joined the Free Thinkers, her life is about to become much more dangerous.

Frustrated by her seemingly pointless efforts to prove her worth to the Free Thinkers, she wonders if she made the right choice. Yet she can’t go back to her old life, can’t forgive Magnum for what it did to her mother. Then she discovers a crucial piece of intelligence: Andersen has been hard at work on a clandestine project that’s caught the attention of the Creators.

At last Dara is made a Free Thinker operative, trained and taught the truth about the Great Famine and its aftermath, but she must conceal her knowledge at all cost. Andersen must believe she’s no more than the sacrificial lamb he thinks she is.

But as the Creators’ interest in the project deepens, Dara is placed under surveillance and cut off from her Free Thinker lifeline. When she makes one last, desperate attempt at exposing his secret project, the repercussions are enormous.

In this sequel to Contributor, Dara must cement her position as assistant to Andersen, while simultaneously trying to uncover any information to help the Free Thinkers.

I really enjoyed this and felt it was a solid book with great pacing, world building, and character development. Dara is really pushed to her limits in dealing with Andersen’s demands and at the same time trying to help the Free Thinkers. The scale of what is at stake becomes very clear as the novel progresses and Dara must make some really difficult decisions. We learn more about what the Creators are like and what their plans are, as well as the danger to those who cross them. I found the story to be engrossing and a great page turner.

I didn’t really notice anything negative that detracted from my enjoyment, so I’m going to rate this one a 5. I’m really looking forward to reading more of this series in the future.
