TorchTorch by Tricia Copeland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Torch (Lovelock Book 2) by Tricia Copeland is an intriguing YA sci fi dystopian adventure story that is set in the future. It is set in post apocalyptic times after the loss of most of the population due to a flu pandemic. Having thought the virus gone it once again threatens all that is left and the powers to be fighting over the cure. As expected the world in which everyone knew has long gone and they have been living with famine and poverty, and a race against time as our main characters try to save the day but it is a race against time and the danger and action is running rife. Who can be trusted and who can not? Tricia gives us a run for our money as we journey along with these young adults who are trying to do what’s right whilst staying out of danger.

If you love a sci fi dystopian world story then you will love this series.

Torch by Tricia Copeland is the second book in the Lovelock series. I recommend reading the first book before this because this is truly a continuation of the story. If you like YA, dystopian, sci-fi, or adventure you will enjoy this story. It is fast paced and kept me reading until late into the night. I really enjoy the Jema because she is at the heart of trying to save everyone but has been named as a traitor. Those who she comes across are a varied lot. Who and why should she trust them?
This story is really timely because it is dealing with a contagion which has been taking out the population and the cure for all. Greed is a big player in the motives of people at the top rungs. Can Jema get the cure before it is too late?
I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Torch (Lovelock Book 2)
by Tricia Copeland

I want to start by saying that if you haven’t read book 1 first I think you should so you can get a better understanding because book 2 is a continuation from the first one, and of course it’s a great book.This book is full of adventure, danger, action, and unexpected turns. We follow Jema and Troy as they are in a race against time to try to save humanity. We get introduced to new characters and experience their relationships with each other evolve. Even though Jema and Troy are young, they are strong survivors. The author wrote a great story with vivid detail so I felt like I was along for the adventure. I can’t wait to see what comes out next. I recommend this book.

4-stars

Torch (Lovelock Book 2) by Tricia Copeland was a great dystopian novel. It is the second book in a series. I have not read the first book and was worried about reading this book out of turn. I was pleased, however, with the explanation the author gave to help readers know what is occurring. The storyline revisited what occurred in book one which helped me tremendously. I do want to go back and read the first book based on how much I enjoyed this book. It took me some time to get into it though. I loved the characters and was amazed with everything they went through. I loved how prepared they were for the circumstances. This is an enjoyable novel and I look forward to reading more from this author.

Torch is the 2nd book in the Lovelock series by Tricia Copeland. It picks up where LoveLock Ones left off, so it should be read in order. The downfall of reading a brand new book, is now I have to wait for the next book in the series. This series is a solid dystopian series, with a twist of science fiction. It is action packed and you won’t want to put it down. I was hoping this book would end differently, but instead it leaves us with a lot of anxiety and frustration. It is a wonderfully written story, with strong characters and a solid plot. The book follows Jema, a teenager on the run, after being branded a traitor. Her uncle is about to cause WWIII and Jema and her friends are trying to prevent that. There is a deadly virus circulating, and Jema and her boyfriend Troy were the keys to making a cure. They are constantly on the run, fighting for survival. Jema has the weight of the world on her shoulders, along with the survival of their group. It’s a lot for a 16 year old, but she is strong and one of the best female leads I’ve read about. Highly recommend this series. Copeland, hurry up with book 3 now, anxiously awaiting!

Torch by Tricia Copeland was a great novel! I had a little trouble with events in the beginning, as this is the second novel in the Lovelock series, and I have not read the first book in the series yet. However after getting into it, I found I immensely enjoyed it! A very apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic novel, this felt very preeminent to me, in the fact that with everything in the world going on right now the way it is, this could very well be out future in a couple of years. So I felt some melancholy while reading, but it was a great read! I highly recommend this novel.

I give Torch (Lovelock Book 2) by Tricia Copeland, 4 stars.
**This review may contain spoilers from book 1.**

This is the second book in the YA dystopian series. It picks up where book one left off and is full of adventure, action, heartbreak, and basically just learning to survive. Yes there is a main goal and they are working towards it, but in this new world, everything takes time. The timing of this book being released right now makes it feel all the more like this could really happen. It brings things into a perspective I did not have when I read book one.

A very well-written story, this book pulls you right in and is interesting from beginning to end. There is so much going on in this book. The characters are great too. You have ones that are back from book one, as well as new characters you will come to love.

Since this continues the story from book one, I do recommend reading the first book before you delve into this one. However, this is a great dystopian story and I definitely recommend both books.

Torch is a post-apocalyptic/Sci-Fi read from author Tricia Copeland. This is my second read from this author and once again She has created another captivating and imaginative read that is easy to read and flows from chapter to chapter.
This author writing style makes this read so real and realistic I felt as though I was entwined within the story, and it was made believable in a way that made you stop and think.

This book is filled with action, adventure and danger. It’s suspenseful and thrilling and keeps you guessing. The characters that Tricia Copeland has created are relatable, and you can connect with them on many levels throughout the read. The journey Jema and Troy make again in this read pushes what we already saw in Book 1 to the next level, this book has you on the edge of your seat along wondering what really will happen next. Tricia Copeland has left us wondering again with this ending and has left us wanting more! I can’t wait to see where our next story takes us. I highly recommend this read!

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This young adult dystopian novel is a fast paced read, second in the lovelock series and is heavily action based. 16 year old Jema along with her friends is faced with an almost impossible task to save the world, against a deadly virus. Her sinister uncle, who rules the government is against releasing the cure for this lethal contagion. So, in the middle of the desert, with limited resources, she has to battle against time to get the cure out. She and her friends are branded as traitors and are on the chase.
The most interesting part about this book is that we can relate it to what is happening around us now with the pandemic around us. The virus is up on the rise and if the cure is not found, the whole world is at risk. Rings a very familiar bell right? I enjoyed reading this page turner.
The only thing I thought was that the plot is so heavily action packed and dialogue oriented, there is a very little description of the setting of the story itself. The reader doesn’t miss it in the midst of all the action, but it would have been more interesting to read when more attention is paid to the little details around the setting, which most authors do, to enhance the beauty of the story.

This is a continuation from the last book. Troy and Jema are living off the grid, trying to survive. I loved that part of the book. Seeing what they did at their location to survive. The story surprised me at times and others it seemed in limbo. The characters are intriguing. I mean Troy and Jema are very smart and ingenious. They impress me with their maturity. When other people are added to the mix they take Troy and Jema at age value. They are always surprised when they realize what Troy and Jema can and will do to survive. I do enjoy all the coded messages, whistles and sign language among others that they use for communication. That was very cool!

Overall I didn’t love this (I really wanted to because book 1 impressed me so much). Among the action and drama there were too many lull times. I know some are expected but I was almost to the point of flipping pages during that time. The character building is good although I didn’t see much growth in the two main characters (secondary characters-yes). The world created was still great. Very different to think of the US that way. That ending??? It just blew me away! I was surprised and shocked!
