Me? A Leader? Okay, I did prove that there's more to Inside than we knew. That a whole world exists beyond this cube we live in. And finding that led to a major rebellion - between worker scrubs like me and the snobby uppers who rule our world. Make that ruled. Because of me, we're free. I thought that meant I was off the hook, and could go off on my own again - while still touching base with Riley, of course. He's the one upper I think I can trust. But then we learned that there's outside and then there is Outside. And something from Outside wants In.

My Review: 


Spaceships! Aliens! Explosions! 

Read on for my review of Outside In, the finale of this duology!



What's good about it:

Setting: I love the scenes of Trella exploring and running around inside the spaceship and the various tasks and adventures she does. 

Writing: I loved Snyder's writing in this series, it's sharp and concise, yet it doesn't skimp out on description or character development. The writing makes the story fast paced and super fun to read.


What's bad about it:

World Building: There's not much world building that happens in this book, it's mostly another threat from the outside world. I wish that Snyder would have expanded and told more of the backstory of where the spaceship came from and the history of Inside.


Final Thoughts: 

Outside In is a really fun read but I like the first installment better. The finale seems like a loose rehash of the first novel which prevented me from giving it four stars.
