Team Novel Teen Blog Tour Featuring Sneak by Evan Angler

It’s blog tour day! Today Team Novel Teen is reviewing Sneak by Evan Angler. Sneak is book 2 in the Swipe series and came out September 4th.


In a future United States under the power of a charismatic leader, everyone gets the Mark at age thirteen. The Mark lets citizen shop, go to school, and even get medical care—but without it, you are on your own. Few refuse to get the Mark. Those who do . . . disappear.
Logan Langly went in to get his Mark, but he backed out at the last minute.  Now he’s on the run from government agents who will stop at nothing to capture him. But Logan is on a mission to find and save his sister, Lily, who disappeared five years ago on her thirteenth birthday, the day she was supposed to receive her Mark.
Logan and his friends, a group of dissenters called the Dust, discover a vast network of the Unmarked, who help them travel safely to the capital city where Lily is imprisoned. Along the way, the Dust receives some startling information from the Markless community, opening their eyes to the message of Christianity and warning that humanity is now entering the End of Days.
When the Dust finally arrives in the capital, it seems that all their careful planning is useless against a government that will do anything to bend its citizens to its will. Can the gentle words Logan has found in a tattered, banned Bible really stand against the most powerful military the world has ever known? Can Logan even sacrifice his own freedom, choosing to act through faith alone?

As you may know, I loved Swipe so I was REALLY excited about the sequel. Sneak doesn’t disappoint! Angler’s writing is still tight and fast-paced, taunting us with bits and pieces of the puzzle while simultaneously raising more questions as we delve deeper into the world of both the Markless and the Marked. Leaders are questioned, relationships are tested, and assumptions are overturned as Logan and the Dust race to save Lily. Meanwhile, Erin races to find the truth in time to save Logan. Erin is my favorite character. She’s snarky, vulnerable and smart. She craves love, but her parents are too self-absorbed to provide it. Her failure to save her family drives her quest to save Logan and parallels Logan’s own quest to save Lily. I also loved the underground-railroad-style network of the Markless called “The River.” Brilliant! I can’t wait to see what happens next!

I loved that Sneak was fast paced and taunted us as if the whole story is a giant puzzle. I’m already anxiously awaiting the arrival of book #3!

    I also loved the Underground Railroad part. That was just so creative. I also love how the book went deeper into the world. Great review!

    PS ‘snarky’ is an interesting way to describe Erin. Never heard that descripter before.

  6. The “Underground railroad” part sounds very intriguing! I’ve started the book, but it then got pushed to side as I got busy. All these reviews on the tour make me want to pick it up again! 🙂 Great review!
