Book Review: A Vault of Sins

A Vault of Sins (Chaos Theory #2) by Sarah Harian: In her stunning New Adult debut, The Wicked We Have Done, Sarah Harian introduced readers to the Compass Room: a twisted experimental jail where the guilty and the innocent suffer alike. But breaking out was only the beginning…

Even though she’s escaped, twenty-two-year-old Evalyn Ibarra is anything but free. She’s desperate to return to a life that no longer exists, but prying reporters continually draw her back into nightmarish memories, using the tabloids to vilify her. Bad press is the last thing she needs during the trial of the year: the case that she and her fellow survivors staked against the Compass Room engineers. A case that could terminate the use of the inhumane system forever...

But in her dreams, she is still locked in that terrifying jail.

When she wakes, someone is trying to communicate with her in secret, through strange and intricate clues. As Evalyn follows their signs, she uncovers a conspiracy that goes so much deeper than her own ordeal. A dangerous intrigue that only she can bring to light. One that will force her to work with the one person she doesn’t want to see.

The person who owns her heart...

Lori's thoughts: Awhile back, I read The Wicked We Have Done, and really enjoyed the book. It was different, it was unique, and kept me wondering what was going on the entire way through. Not in a bad way. I jumped at the chance to read A Vault of Sins, to see where things would go from where TWWHD left off.

Truthfully, I'm not sure how I feel about this book. I didn't not like it or anything, but I didn't love it either. It might have been better if I read the two books back to back. Because A Vault of Sins picks up right where TWWHD leaves off and I found myself digging in my feeble memory banks to retrieve info so that I could continue knowing who/what/when, etc.

I absolutely adored Evelyn. The romance with Evelyn and Casey continues, albeit rocky.

I'm not sure if there will be another book after A Vault of Sins, but I hope so.

When it all comes down to it, I do like A Vault of Sins, just not as much as the first book.
