Mori and her friends have done what they believed impossible: breaking out of Old Harmony, the corporate utopia in which they live. Now they must face a whole new set of challenges (in a world they know nothing about) that will threaten not only their friendships but everything they know.
Megan Frasier Blakemore out-does herself in The Daybreak Bond, the second book in The Firefly Five series. Now outside of their utopian society and the safety net that has always surrounded them, each member of the “Firefly Five” must grow up quickly if they are to reach their destination and save Ilana. Mori is once again the conduit for the story, with the reader experiencing everything with her: fear, pain, love, anger, and the beautiful responsibility she takes for herself and her friends. Blakemore manages all of this in a realistic and touching way, not shying away from the difficulty and consequences of making grown-up decisions.
The Daybreak Bond is a wonderful addition to The Firefly Five series and will leave fans at the same time satisfied and wanting more.
