    BRRRRRR  its frigid out there for a Monday morning . I hope everyone is staying warm and reading some great books . Today we are going to review the second book in the Roadhouse Chronicles . REDEEMED  by Matthew Cox

                            BOOK BLURB 

The worst part about chasing one’s dream is catching it.

Six months ago, Kevin opened a Roadhouse of his own. No longer the idiot braving the dangerous post-nuclear highways of 2073, he thought he’d finally grow old and happy selling bullets, beds, and booze to those still foolish enough to get behind the wheel.

Then, he’d met her.

The white-haired outcast from the xenophobic Enclave crashed into his life, becoming the conscience he never wanted and everything he desired. She couldn’t save the world from the Virus, but she could save Kevin’s dream.

A biker gang calling themselves the Redeemed starts shooting up Roadhouses in flagrant disregard of the Code, shattering the serenity of his humble waystation. When the long-vaunted retribution of Amarillo’s army fails to materialize, Kevin feels more like a sitting duck than he ever did on the road—but it’s not his ’house he fears losing.

Determined to protect her, he takes it upon himself to enforce the unwritten law of the Roadhouse.

                        MY REVIEW
     No longer on the road Tris and Kevin are finally working at the Roadhouse that has been a dream of Kevin's for as long as he can remember . Everything is going good for them until the day they find Wayne another road house owner is found dead by a gang . When there is no Amarillo's army to come and stop the disregard of the deaths. They are nervous and want retribution . But will they be able to find the culprits and settle down at the road house together ,
  Kevin and Tris are back and better then ever . Kevin to me in this book is kind of getting the wanderlust after having the road house for 6 months . He seems a little bit more relaxed though and has fallen in love with Tris . When he finally heads out we see the old Kevin come back the edgy driver but there is a little difference too him . Tris is also changing she seems a little off her game . When Tris and Zara are out on a mission she just seems a little out of it . She is still kick butt , and man I really like her . Zara is a character that we met in book one as working for the Enclave but in this book she has come to the right side and is helping Tris on her mission to get people out of Amarillo.  All I can say is these characters are getting better with each book . They are becoming more and more complex and you can't help liking them . 
    In book two the author takes us on more adventures . We actually get to see Tris go out on her own mission with Zara  and Kevin heading out on a path of revenge .  The author weaves the two stories together with a seamless way . I truly felt that Tris got a little bit of a story line in this book .  She got to battle more and Kevin was it seemed running around in circles .  I will say that the story is getting better with each book . I can't wait to read book three . So if you like dystopia, apocalyptic stories with  a zombie or two in it these are the books . Check it out you will not be disappointed . Great book to read on a cold day .
