Caught in a race against time, confronted with a local team intent on revenge and expecting the imminent arrival of a larger reinforcement, Harry and Jack must avoid existing dangers, gain allies, and stop the Alliance from launching its next Activation.
With the fate of the remaining population at stake, Harry and Jack know that stopping the Activation means going to war once again....

The book jumps right back into the action

Picks up exactly where First Activation leaves off. The two brothers are forced to escape from Michigan and go back to New York City. Getting there will be no easy fate for them facing off activated people and Genesis Alliance members who are hunting them down.

Thankfully James Langton did the narration for the second audiobook. I really enjoyed his performance of First Activation and was happy to have him back for the Second Activation. The quality of everything was great, his voice, the character voices he gave and the overall performance. Everything was studio quality with no problems to speak of at all.

The book jumps right back into the action, taking the final line from the first book and making it the first line of this book. Honestly, it never let up through the whole book. As I was listening to this, my heart rate would increase as the brothers would be thrown into terrible situation after terrible situation that I was convinced they wouldn’t make it out of.

That to me is a sign of a well written book. It grabbed my attention from the get go and wouldn’t let it go. And any time it felt like it was letting go it grabbed me tighter and threw the characters into the fire again.

I’m not sure if the Wearmouth brothers are going to be continuing the story after these two books, but they can. The story has an ending, but could be continued for sure. I was happy with where they left it, but now I’m craving more and more!

The activations does this journey...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

In almost every instance, having an audiobook on the go is time well spent. This one is definitely no exception. Well drawn characters, excellent and interesting narration, and a plot that is entertaining. Well worth it.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

No real surprise. To be continued, so far as I can tell.

Which scene was your favorite?

The city scenes are fascinating speculation.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Definitely, but it would need some aggressive editing.

Any additional comments?

This book is worth the credit if nothing else but for the performance by James Langton, who is quickly becoming one of my favourite readers on Audible. This less of a story, and more of a journal of a journey, but however you want to describe it, it is well worth the investment of time and credit.
