ARC Book Review: Pariah #2 by Aron Warner

Goodreads: Brent Marks is not a freak. He is one of the Pariah, a group of teens who become extremely intelligent after being cured of a genetic disorder. Although in most ways a normal teen, Brent is considered dangerous and is tracked down by the government who see these kids as an enormous threat. Can he evade them? What do they have planned for Brent and the others?

I haven't read a graphic novel in a while & found this a lot of fun.

This is the second in the series & follows Lila Ellerman escaping from the laboratories after an explosion.  The super intelligent teens are to blame & are now on the run.  Hiding in the forest in Montana, they try to get a signal to find out what is happening out in the real world. 

They find their signal & have discovered that they are being tracked & taken prisoner.  Another Vitro turns up to warn them of the black-ops team approaching & says they will be working together in the future.  Once gone, the team arrives & captures all the teens.  Lila's main concern is that her boyfriend Brandon is not hurt.

What will happen in the next issue of Pariah?  Will Lila be held captive & will Brandon be alright?  What about the virus that they are being blamed for releasing?  We will have to wait for the next issue....

The graphics were fantastic as was the story line & I cannot wait to see the next issue.  I rated this one a 4stars.
