Publisher's Summary

We want our son returned.
This girl is proof that we can save you all. If you ignore our plea, we will kill our hostages one at a time.
To be a Pure is to be perfect, untouched by Detonations that scarred the Earth, and sheltered inside the paradise that is the Dome. But Partridge escaped to the outside world, where Wretches struggle to survive amid smoke and ash. Now, at the command of Partridge's father, the Dome is unleashing nightmare after nightmare upon the Wretches in an effort to get him back.
At Partridge's side is a small band of those united against the Dome: Lyda, the warrior; Bradwell, the revolutionary; El Capitan, the guard; and Pressia, the young woman whose mysterious past ties her to Partridge in ways she never could have imagined. Long ago a plan was hatched that could mean the Earth's ultimate doom. Now only Partridge and Pressia can set things right.
To save millions of innocent lives, Partridge must risk his own by returning to the Dome and facing his most terrifying challenge. And Pressia, armed only with a mysterious Black Box containing a set of cryptic clues, must travel to the very ends of the Earth, to a place where no map can guide her. If they succeed, the world will be saved. But should they fail, humankind will pay a terrible price....
Book 2 of the Pure Trilogy.

Pressia, Bradwell, Lyda, Partridge,and El Capitan, are all once again on a mission to bring down the Dome. If you have read the first book, then you will definitely enjoy this one! This is full of adventure, romance,sadness and has excellent narration! This will keep you on the edge until the very end – however it will keep you hanging. If you don’t like to wait for the ending, then I recommend waiting until the next and final book comes out before you start this one.

What made the experience of listening to Fuse the most enjoyable?

......I love this series...I think it is so much more original and interesting then most dystopian society books, lately. I am just fascinated and horrified, by the way the nuclear blasts changed the world and the people. Well, at least the unprotected ...

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

absolutely!The way the author can find beauty in the worth the listen....It will not disappoint!

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

The main characters are intricate and the way the author "writes them" to us, you truly care about them....its very cool.But there is something about "El Capitan" and his brother...I dont want to give anything just need to listen....these books are like nothing else you've listened to.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved the books from start to finish. But I enjoyed the way the people were described, finding how their deformities can be lovely. And their will to survive, under such dire conditions....It also has a lot of symbolism, I think.... The way the individual fusions are "carried", some literally, by each character...have meaning to each of them....

Any additional comments?

If you enjoy post-apocalyptic, dystopian and a bit of gruesome...your set!
