Books I’ve Enjoyed: Apocalypsis Book 2 (Warpaint)
APOCALYPSIS is a 3-book, YA Post-Apocalyptic series, beginning with Book 1, Kahayatle. This book, Warpaint, is the 2nd in the series. Book 3 will be available August 31, 2012.
My name’s Bryn Mathis. I’m seventeen years old, and I live in Kahayatle, otherwise known as The Everglades. I live with my three best friends and a tribe of Native American teens, because my dad died almost a year ago, along with all the other adults in the world.
We’re creating a whole new world for ourselves, but this world has problems. The biggest threat to our survival is not starvation anymore … it’s the gang of kids who lives nearby that has become more vicious than anyone could have imagined possible. The soulless demons have gone too far, and it’s time for us to rise up and do what needs to be done to set things right.
Alone, it might have been impossible; but now I’ve got friends. I’m worried though, that I won’t be able to get them ready to fight in time, and that we’re taking on more of a challenge than we can handle right now.
And I have no idea what might be waiting for us when we arrive on their front doorstep.

Apocalypsis: Book 2 (Warpaint)was a really great followup to the first book in the series.
The characters showed a wonderful scope of growth and development from the first book. You could truly see that their journey had changed them, and I think overall they are better for it. Even more than that though, you could also see them grow further during this book as they put aside their preconceived notions. That alone helped push this book to the 5 star marks.
The plot continues where the first book left off. If you’ve read the first book then you can likely guess what events this book will center around, but a lot of this book focuses more on the changing dynamics of the characters rather than events. I personally enjoy very character centric books, and emotional books and this story definitely delivered that.
On the other hand, the cliffhanger is killing me. *cries*
