My review
Thoughts on the book: I loved book one of this trilogy, Cell 7 and couldn't praise it enough. When I read it I wasn't sure if there was going to be another book and was delighted when I found out there was then to find out that it is actually a trilogy made my year. So when I found out there would be review copies I jumped at the chance to get one and even had it waiting in my basket on Booktopia in case I didn't get a copy. Well guess what turned up in my mailbox and it couldn't have turned up on a better day as it was my birthday. I squealed when I opened the parcel and found it inside and immediately hugged it (Yes that is how much I love this series) and put it on top of my TBR pile. I was itching bad to read it but persevered and finished the book that I was reading and then delved right in.

Day 7 starts off basically where Cell 7 had finished. Martha is now a 'free' women and Isaac is now locked up for the murder of his adoptive father. Now the fight is on to save Isaac and change everyone's opinion on the system that has been put in place for so called criminals. All our favourite characters are back together and know that to do what they need to do they are going to have to break a heap of laws. But can this be done when no one is ever really free?

One thing I absolutely love about this series is the break up of the chapters where it's all written just as a normal story chapter would be and then we get the break up of this with the break down of the Death is Justice program and Buzz for Justice program. I really enjoy these moments and it gives you more sides of the stories that are happening. I also loved the inclusion of The Prime Minister in this book and think that it's fantastic to have an evil characters POV. He certainly throws a lot at our favourite characters but little does he know that he just might be the one being played.

We do find some very surprising changes in all of our main characters from Cell 7 to Day 7 as well as being introduced more to some lesser known characters. I think the biggest surprise is the person mentioned at the end of the book who helped Martha out of a very sticky spot (trying not to post any spoilers here). I'm pretty sure she is going to be a major game changer in Book 3. As for book 3, I can't believe we are left with a cliffhanger like that and that we have to wait until 2018 to find out what happens. Even with the little extract that is found at e back of my copy it only leads to more questions and me wanting the book now. Kerry Drewery if you reading this I'm putting my hand up for an advance readers copy right now so I can find out what happens. I don't think I can wait.
