Dancer, now a determined teenager, senses trouble brewing within the Dome. Small acts of sabotage rattle the fragile peace within the Dome, threatening to unravel the harmony they've worked so hard to achieve.

As she stumbles upon a crack in the Dome's facade and her closest friend, Ruben, vanishes without a trace, Dancer realizes the threat is real, pushing her world to the brink.

Meanwhile, in a hidden corner of the Dome, supposedly incapacitated, Rita Hart, now with one hand, has been plotting. Her plan unfolds in the far-away Underlands, but its motives remain shrouded in mystery.

As Rita Hart’s sinister plan threatens to plunge Eden into chaos, Dancer must confront Rita, her own beliefs and trust herself to unveil the truth behind the looming darkness. And what role do the Silvers play in all of this?

Can Dancer and her allies decode Rita's cryptic plot in time, or will they succumb to the raging storm of anger that looms over them?

My Review:

Dance of Anger is the second book in The Anger Series. Dance of Anger was just as good if not better than the first book Blaze of Anger. I was drawn into this world from the first book. The suspense ramps up even more in Dance of Anger.

And as with the first book, I couldn’t turn those pages fast enough. I wanted to know what was going on every minute. The many twists kept me glued to the pages racing to the end to see how it all would turn out.

The world-building just gets better and better with each book. And so do the characters and their story. Like the first book Dance of Anger is told from different points of view letting us see through more than one character's eyes as to what was happening.

Dancer and her friend Ruben are out one day when they see a crack in the Dome. Ruben is having problems breathing as he is not used to the air in the Dome. An artificial intelligence humanoid wants to help Ruben to the health sector.

Dancer is not sure that she can trust the artificial intelligence humanoid but she needs to let someone know about the crack in the Dome. She decides that it will probably be okay and lets him go.

Later Dancer goes to the health sector to check on Ruben but he is not there and has not been there. Ruben has disappeared without a trace. Where is Ruben? Is he safe? Did the artificial intelligence humanoid do something with him?

Ruben is not the only thing Dancer has to worry about at the moment something very sinister is going on in the Dome. Their world may be falling apart all around them. Can Dancer find out what is going on before it is too late and their world comes tumbling down? Why is the Dome cracking?

Rita Hart is being held captive in a corner of the Dome. She wants out. She is making plans to see that it happens. What is Rita Hart up to? Does she have anything to do with Dome falling apart?

What a wonderful story. I can’t wait to read the next book, Bolt of Anger, in the The Anger Series to see where the story goes next.
