Vivian continues her plot to take down the Church of America! One of her friends has been abducted, and she finds out more secrets about her family along the way. Really this entire book is just an escapade of Viv coming out of her shell and being a total renegade. She will stop at nothing to defend her friends and family, and reveal the truth to the world, that the first rapture was completely fake. Now all she needs is proof.

I didn’t like this one as much as the first, but it wasn’t bad. It gave a sense of satisfaction and closure, although it seems like they may have left it open for a final book. There is not much suspense, I had it guessed pretty much from the beginning of the book. Every time there was a twist, I had the “yeah right” feeling, like it was obviously a ruse. It was pretty fluffy, and it feels like it could have been done in one book. Alas, I still enjoyed reading it, and none of the characters bothered me, I even liked one or two of them. I did appreciate that with all of this said that it was a fast and easy read.
