War is brewing in the hood. VOORHEEZE is raging after the death of his big homie, T’RIDA, and with blood in his eyes and pain in his heart, it’s time to paint the streets blood red! CLARKOLA is called to step up to a position of leadership that he eagerly has awaited. Now, he's primed to take control of East Palo Alto.
Meanwhile, a new team of young beasts, Y.N.M, is emerging and they're as lethal as death. SUTTON, their leader, has decided to take NEVA DIE to war. He and his team of young hyenas will test Neva Die like never before. When the smoke clears, who will be left standing?
While the street drama builds to a crescendo, Voorheeze has a new agenda. He’s declared war on the Milpitas Police Department for the death of T’Rida. In this bloody and all-out battle for vengeance and supremacy, who will emerge as the unchallenged GORILLAZ IN THE BAY? Whose lives will get snuffed out? How many families will shed tears before the final bullet is fired

Book 1 (read the review here) ended with an epic death scene that was so descriptive and moving it stuck with me for a few days. The demise of T'Rida's, Jason/ Voorheeze is seething with anger and has the MPD in his sights. What he doesn't know is a young gang is determined to annihilate his gang. Voorheeze's secret struggles are revealed. Betrayals are revealed between a couple, murder, murder and murder.
Again the author hit us with the gritty side of gang life beyond the "money, cars, clothes and hoes".
The story and characters were developed. The pace moved quickly. There was some type of action at every turn. The author did a good job of pulling me into each scene with his attention to detail when it came to describing the characters and scenes.
As far as some of the technical aspects there were issues with sentence flow, missing punctuation and at least one scene that appeared inconsistent with what we were told only a few sentences prior. All in all, this was a solid read and I enjoyed it. My score is due to the issues with the flow and structure. I looked forward to what I assume will be the final book to wrap things up.
One final note- I respect that the author took the time to shout out those who took the time to leave reviews and how their feedback helped shape the sequel. Also, the level of respect he has for his Queen was beautifully displayed. The only thing that could make this series better is employing Mr. Gates to narrate the books, which I hope he does and soon.
