Publisher's Summary

The Earth is a dry, dead, wasteland. The last place livable was Dome 17, but it was failing. Those people made a last ditch effort to survive. Though a bold and daring plan, they were able to reach what seems to be a derelict colony ship, The Eschaton, which is in mid-flight. (Please see book one, Recovery of a Colony Ship).
The Eschaton had been designed to hold numerous and diverse immense biological habitats: flora, fauna, and everything needed to terraform a new world. It also carried thousands of people in suspended animation. The ship was designed to be tended by crews who would live out their lives in the journey between worlds. That journey would only be completed after several generations had lived and died while in transit. That was the plan. But something happened. The people from Dome 17 have reached The Eschaton, but what will they find in those habitats? What systems are still functioning? Did any of the crew survive? What lurks deep in the bowels of a colony ship? Jamie and Michael will seek to unravel these mysteries, and survive, as they explore the Colony Ship.

Live aboard a ship that's forgotten what its past.

This is book 2 in John Thorton's Eschaton series. If you have not read the first book I would recommend doing that first.

Jamie and Michael are aboard the Eschaton with the survivors of Dome 17 but most of the ship is still cut off from them. While they and the rest of the crew have made allies out of some of the inhabitants there are others that do not want to play nice. To make matters worse these bandits seem to be able to go where they please unlike the rest of the people aboard the Eschaton.

With all but one of the onboard AIs non-operational there are choices to be made and as those aboard the Eschaton will find out not all of the AI systems should be tangled with.

The beauty of Thorton's work is honestly not in the telling of one specific tale but his desire to tell the tale from branching perspectives (different books/series). This allows the reader to gain multiple perspectives and find out more about the world/time Thorton has thrown his characters into. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Read the first book bfor the second but good book

This was a good book but probably should have read the first one before the second. I would recommend reading in order to get the best out of the book. So it is hard to give a proper recommendation. The plot was very good as were the characters. Very well developed.
