The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness

We were in the square, in the square where I'd run, holding her, carrying her, telling her to stay alive, stay alive till we got safe, till we got to Haven so I could save her - But there weren't no safety, no safety at all, there was just him and his men...
Fleeing before a relentless army, Todd has carried a desperately wounded Viola right into the hands of their worst enemy, Mayor Prentiss. Immediately separated from Viola and imprisoned, Todd is forced to learn the ways of the Mayor's new order. But what secrets are hiding just outside of town? And where is Viola? Is she even still alive? And who are the mysterious Answer? And then, one day, the bombs begin to explode...

"The Ask and the Answer" is a tense, shocking and deeply moving novel of resistance under the most extreme pressure. This is the second title in the "Chaos Walking" trilogy. From Goodreads

This is the second book in the
"Chaos Walking" trilogy. It starts exactly where book one finishes. I wasn't quite caught up in this book as much as the first one but it is still very good and has surprises all through the book. Who to trust and can you really trust the ones you trust? All the time questions. This is one of those series I am happy I haven't found until the trilogy is finished so I don't have to wait a year or more for the continuation. I am taking a short break before getting hold of the last book but as this second book also ended on quite a cliffhanger it probably won't be long before I am back.

This book qualifies for: 
100 books in a year Reading Challenge 2012, 
Goodreads 2012 Reading Challenge, 
2012 Ebook Challenge
