Title: The Decaying Empire
Series: The Vanishing Girl #2
Author: Laura Thalassa

When eighteen-year-old teleporter Ember Pierce wakes up in a Los Angeles hospital, she remembers only the basics: she’s been trained by the government as a spy, she’s sent on dangerous missions, and her last assignment—the one that landed her in the hospital—was a setup.

Caden Hawthorne has spent the past ten months of his life grieving Ember’s death. So when she shows up in his room like an apparition, he can’t believe his eyes. But this Ember is different. Her hair is longer, her skin is paler, her gaze is haunted. She tells him what he’s already begun to suspect: someone he trusted betrayed her.

Now, uncertain who is friend and who is foe, Ember and Caden face the toughest mission of their lives—to stay together and survive, as they run from danger toward an unknown future.


Ember wakes up after being in a coma for months, she knows that the people back at the Project betrayed her, and she must figure out how to escape once and for all. 

But, that plan gets harder when Caden has a hard time accepting the fact that she's even alive let alone that means he was also betrayed and by a friend as well. 

But, these two must figure it out soon and fast, because Ember's life may still be in danger if they don't get a move on soon. 

I liked this book, but not as much as the first one. I was also really annoyed with how "trusting" Ember was of Adrian. That really drove me nuts, and I hated it. I felt like she was being so dumb. 

But, the rest of the story was really interesting and had a lot of drama in it. Also, I really enjoyed getting to see more of Caden and Ember together as a couple, it was fantastic. 

I look forward to the next book because it's going to rock especially after this cliffhanger ending. You do not piss off Ember that's all I'm saying.
