Publisher's Summary

After leaving her underground shelter with a passing mutant tribe, 16-year-old Isabella, her new husband Malcolm, two young tribe members, and two little children, seek the old scientist Telemark village's priestess saw in her visions. Is he looking for a vaccine to keep humans from suffering the ravages of their poisoned world? Or are Araddea's visions merely hallucinations born of her mutated mind?
Meanwhile Isabella's brother, Luke, is desperately trying to find them to deliver medication that can save them from a disease they don't even know they have. But Luke isn't just delivering meds...he has escaped the military base with knowledge of a government plan that will help clean up their toxic and irradiated world, but at what cost to mutants?

They just want peace

In this sequel we learn more about how the war happened, and how the people over the years try to survive. Narration makes the story much more moving. Enjoyed it a lot.

Get better or get dead.

Fifty years after the one day Terror War that rained down both nuclear and chemical weapons killing most of the world's population, the survivors are divided into 'humans' who lived in sheltered accomodation, and the Outsiders, who, because of genetic abnormalities, were also known as 'mutants' - their lives were mostly short. Isobel had grown up in her family's underground shelter but left and married Malcolm, an Outsider. Reading for her life and with terrible news about what the army intends for the mutants, Isobel's brother Luke heads out to look for her.

This is the second book in a trilogy and, although it would probably add to the understanding of the characters, it is not necessary to have read book one, Into the Outside, as a brief but helpful synopsis prologue brings the reader up to date. The story is a gentle one and, despite horrors and confrontations, there "was still joy to be found." Well written, with good characterisations of the easy to like protagonists, the story switches with alternating chapters between the journeys of Luke and his sister.
Ann Bumback's narration is, in tune with the whole book, a pleasant one, soft, warm and slow, well developed for the different voices, though sometimes lacking intonation in the connecting text. Overall, however, the reading fits the text well.

An enjoyable listen with likable characters and, although there is tension, not as fraught and dark as many post apocalyptic stories. There is still hope. I look forward to the third and final book, Under the Mountain.
