"Galloping suspense dominates this riveting sequel to the post-apocalyptic Dark Inside" (Kirkus Reviews) as four teens continue the struggle for survival in a world gone mad. Aries, Clementine, Michael, and Mason have survived the first wave of the apocalypse that wiped out most of the world's population and turned many of the rest into murderous Baggers. Now they're hiding out in an abandoned house in Vancouver with a ragtag group of fellow teen survivors, trying to figure out their next move. Aries is trying to lead, but it's hard to be a leader when there are no easy answers and every move feels wrong. Clementine is desperate to find her brother Heath, but it's impossible to know where he'd be, assuming he's alive. Michael is haunted by the memories of his actions during his harrowing struggle to survive. And Mason is struggling with something far worse: the fear that he may be a danger to his friends. As the Baggers begin to create a new world order, these four teens will have to trust and rely on each other in order to survive.

This book as well as the series was good my only complaints being the many points of view was a little confusing as well as making the characters less deep. For this book especially it lacked a solid goal other then really just staying alive for all the characters to strive for and just to make it seem staying alive has a point in it. Anyways still a good book and will read the third book if there is one.

Can anyone confirm if there will be a third book in the series?

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: Rage Within is a young adult post-apocalyptic novel. It has the feel of a zombie novel, without the cannibalism. The antagonists, the "baggers" are humans that are irrationally violent and unintelligent, but do not eat humans. This is the second in the series, and I did not really love either of them. There are four points of view crammed into one fairly short novel. This is a lot of different headspaces for the reader to become intimate with. The novel is choppy because you are trying to keep up with so many people. The characters are not that unique or deep. There is action, but with the characters being so unsympathetic, it is hard to care.

I think the first book was much better since this one didn't really seem to have a point. Overall, nothing much happened and it just dragged on with all the characters fighting for their lives. I suppose all the answers will be in the 3rd book (assuming this is a trilogy) since this one was so boring and gave no info on what is happening.
