About the book:
My name is Rachel Clancy. Forty-six years ago, life as humanity understood it ended. Armageddon. Well, that’s what we call it, anyway. What other term works as well to describe the day the Vampires and Werewolves slaughtered nearly all of humanity?

When Rachel Clancy turned sixteen, she inadvertently changed the lives of everyone around her. Now, six months later she has to figure out how to live with what has happened.

Sent back into the wilderness—this time with a new love—she will find herself face-to-face with two people she never thought to see again: the boy she thought she loved and the man who wanted to destroy her since birth. If Rachel can learn what drives her forward, there may be a chance for everyone to start again. If she fails, all is lost.
I was impressed with Initiation from the start. This dystopian series with the supernatural twist is an addicting and thrilling adventure. Never have I experienced a novel with this these two qualities, but this amazing author has proven the risk a success. Driven knocked me off my feet. After having loved the first novel; I expected the story to continue in the same fashion. What I found with this second installment was no holds barred page turner. Rebecca Royce knows no fear in her writing, and I loved every minute. The action and suspense was amped up from page one. In the first novel I was reluctant to accept the multiple love interests. It was a little overwhelming to have so many person of interest. Book second ressurcted this issue, and begins filing each person into a position in Rachel's life. This bought the story together more naturally, and allows readers to relate to each character differently. This is a BOOKWHISPERER RECOMMENDED SERIES, and I can not wait to continue this series. The cliff hangers that conclude Driven were abrupt and drastic leaving readers desperate for more. ~BookWhisperer Reviewer JO~

Rebecca Royce continues The Warrior saga in Driven.  The books starts out with Rachel getting back up on her feet from where book one (Initiation) leaves her, only for her to get thrown back down again. I noticed that I was rooting for her to make a difference in her chaotic world and I really struggled with whom I wanted her to be with (Jason, Chad, or Deacon.)

This book was a perfect sequel to the first and was a quick and easy read.  I recommend it! ~BookWhisperer Reviewer MC~
