(Out of Time #2)
What happens when you live longer than you wanted to?
Parvin Blackwater wanted to die, but now she’s being called to be a leader. The only problem is, no one wants to follow.
The Council uses Jude’s Clock-matching invention to force “new-and-improved” Clocks on the public. Those who can’t afford one are packed into boxcars like cattle and used for the Council’s purposes.
Parvin and Hawke find themselves on a cargo ship of Radicals headed out to sea. What will the Council do to them? And why are people suddenly dying before their Clocks have zeroed-out?
While A Time to Die left me breathless with jaw-dropping twists and great characters, I think I found A Time to Speak more inspiring. Once again, Nadine spins a tale that continues to surprise and engage, but I found that I related to Parvin a lot more in this book, like I was learning to believe in her as she was learning to believe in herself--or rather in God's plan for her. And, of course, it had to stop in a place leaving me itching to read the 3rd book. Aaaah!
