The hunter becomes the hunted. . . .

West Grayer is done killing. She defeated her Alternate, a twin raised by another family, and proved she’s worthy of a future. She’s ready to move on with her life.

The Board has other plans. They want her to kill one last time, and offer her a deal worth killing for. But when West recognizes her target as a ghost from her past, she realizes she’s in over her head. The Board is lying, and West will have to uncover the truth of the past to secure her future.

How far will the Board go to keep their secrets safe? And how far will West go to save those she loves? With nonstop action and surprising twists, Elsie Chapman’s intoxicating sequel to Dualed reveals everything.

I was pleasantly surprised by Dualed though I felt that the world building was a little lacking and the small glimpses into the world around West proved that a plethora of stories could potentially be found outside the dual standoffs that made up the first book. Based on the blurb, it sounds like we'll get a larger glimpse into how West's world works with more involvment from The Board. Hopefully the fast-paced, action-packed nature of the first book will be carried over into its sequel. Lots of potential for this one.
