    3. A City Called Smoke is an excellent sequel to the ongoing Australian post-apocalyptic dystopian series, "The Territory". I thoroughly enjoyed reading both it and its predecessor and cannot wait for the final book in the trilogy.Squid and Lynn begin the book where we left them, banished to the east and destined to fill some whacky 'prophecy'. The structure of the novel progresses from this excellently, with no continuity errors and brilliant twists that keep you guessing. Dialogue between charact [...]

    4. A City Called Smoke is book two of the Territory trilogy. If the third book is written as well as the first two, this series may be added to my list of favorites. So far, I'm loving it. When we left off in A Town Called Dust, Squid and Lynn had begun their journey to Big Smoke. This story picks up right at that point. They make an incredible journey across the territory and pick up three friends along the way. The first is Nim, an aboriginal boy on his own quest to destroy the ghouls, who quickl [...]

    5. Honestly, as someone who is extremely into world building I truly did love this book. I wouldn't give it a perfect 5/5 stars because there were some downsides to it. I didn't like how dull some of the characters were like Mr. Stixs and Mr. Stownes I found they were just sort of well there.I did like their plot twist in the end though and how they related to the story. I wasn't able to call that however, with Squid's mom? Yup. Called it the moment he saw her in the Pitt.Regardless, I did find thi [...]

    6. So I purchased this book as soon as I could on it's release date. I enjoyed the first book and was looking forward to how the story continued, and was not disappointed. If you in any way like A Town Called Dust, you'll like this more. The pace is quicker, the story is broader, and imagery is clearer. While there are some predictable moments, not all is what you might expect. Now the wait begins for for the third book

    7. Just finished reading Territory books 1 and 2. Thank you for for this thrilling journey with well developed main characters. What a cliff hanger at the end of A City Called Smoke. Book 3 definitely on my To Read list

    8. Loved this one as much as the first, but traumatized by the cliffhanger at the end, & now can't wait for the conclusion!

    9. A little more fast-paced than the first book.Explores the reasons and the people behind the apocalypse and the whole shebang and still manages to keep my attention.Fun for the whole family, well developed plot and a increasing high body count.Hanging out for the sequel!

    10. You can find this, and other reviews, on my blog. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. At the risk of stating the obvious, A City Called Smoke picks up where A Town Called Dust finishes, and then charges off into the outback.I have some pretty mixed feelings about this one, but in the good way. The whole book is filled with great scenes, and the character development is fantastic.I loved the introduction of Nim, and quite frankly, I’d happily read a whole book on ho [...]

    11. I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This is one sequel I have been waiting for since I enjoyed the first book so much. You have to read this series in order. Squid and Lynn are beginning their journey to fulfill The Prophecy of Steven as A City of Smoke begins, but while they have escaped the High Priestess, she hasn't quite finished with them yet. The majority of this book involves Squid and Lynn's struggle to get beyond the wall to Big Smoke. A [...]

    12. Finding The Truth Hidden In Lies This series must be read in order. The first book is A Town Called Dust. This is the second book. I can't wait to read the third and final book A World Of Ash!Nim and Nara are members of a Mob. They live as nomads in the land beyond the fences. To them the land is sacred and provides for them well. The Outsiders way of life does not live in harmony with the land and is antathema to them. Will they both succeed in their quests and become adults in the Mob? Or will [...]

    13. I received a copy of A City Called Smoke in exchange for an honest review.I really, really, REALLY enjoyed A City Called Smoke - the storyline was really interesting and had lots of layers. As someone who regularly reads dystopian, post-apocalyptic novels I enjoyed that aspect of it, but felt that it went deeper than the standard novels in the genre - there was a lot of social commentary and context around the main storyline. Justin seemed to examine so many themes - the power of the church, rac [...]

    14. The quest for survival continues for Squid and Lynn in the second book of The Territory series. The story flows along nicely in most parts and wraps up some loose ends from the first book. There are plenty of plotting, twists and turns through the book and some of them are huge. They all combine to make for a good adventure read. This book contains a lot more character introspectiveness as they try to understand new and awakening feelings. It all adds depth to the book and makes for a great read [...]

    15. Just gotbetterWow, what an ending! Big cliffhanger. I can't wait to see how the next addition to the series goes. Will Lynn survive? Will Squid or their new friend Nim survive? I definitely will be reading the next book!

    16. Great continuation of the series. Interesting characters and exciting action. Saw where this one was going a bit more than the first but didn't mind. Just looked up when the next book is being published and it's out today! Nicely timed.
