Publisher's Summary

Emily Baxter feared she was the sole survivor of a deadly alien plague that swept through New York City, the nation, and the world in a downpour of blood red rain. And when the dead began transforming into a terrifying new form of life, she feared her survival might be brutally short-lived. Then, a human voice crackled from a satellite phone, urging her to flee north, where more refugees of the global annihilation hunkered down in a desolate Alaskan outpost. Now, with only the supplies she can carry and her faithful dog, Emily races across the country, desperate to outrun the horrors close behind. When she discovers more survivors on the way, they join forces in their determination to cling to life and fight for the future. Standing in their way are Earth’s new masters, equally determined to survive and thrive, and possessed of monstrous capabilities which Emily and her allies can’t begin to imagine…until they’re face-to-face with the hideous reality.

Great sequel!

I found the first book of this series to be engaging and original, a dystopia that stood above many other books of the same genre. I anticipated the sequel and now that I've listened to the whole book almost nonstop, it doesn't disappoint. There are many poignant moments, especially the ending. I found it to be both hopeful and devastating, which is a running trend throughout the book - you're happy the character has survived one more close call, but you just know that in the background the world is changing irreparably. By the way, if you haven't read the first book, I suggest you do before listening to the sequel, or otherwise some situations won't make as much sense. I can't see how there could be a third book in this series, though, the ending felt quite definite, which is kind of sad. The narrator does a great job!

Seduced by the plot, and I feel so cheap.

What disappointed you about Exodus?

That the book version wasn't at my library. If I'd been reading, rather than listening, I would have been able to speed-read through all the dull bits.


Any additional comments?

Despite my misgivings, I wanted to find out what happened next, and I downloaded book two. I'm nearly done, but have lost all patience with the thing--so deliberately sought out spoilers just to find out how the story ends without having to listen to another damn minute. And now I'm REALLY glad I did because the ending is unforgivably trite.
