Hundreds of years after the United States is turned into a radioactive, zombie-infested wasteland, the descendants of peacekeeping troops stranded abroad are now the world's marshals, keeping law and order in a futuristic landscape of high-tech feudalism and raw, bioorganic metal. They are known simply as: The Americans.
The exciting sidequel to Dead Mech takes you on a hellride through Europe, Asia, and beyond as American Ghost Heather Walton must save her family, her friends, and an all-important cargo, as all Americans struggle to maintain their place in a world where the powers that be no longer want them. And will stop at nothing to put an end to their standing and their very existence!
Haven't read or heard Dead Mech? Not a problem! The Americans is a stand-alone novel that takes place at the same time as the events in Dead Mech. Experience either one first, then get ready for the third and final book in the Apex Trilogy, Metal and Ash.

Great story sometimes hard to follow
A stylistic side step, a great sequel!
While the book is a sequel to Jake Bible's Dead Mech it is a very different book. It is told in a more conventional style than the first book and it deals with a very different part of the world than the original.
The Americans was as much about the characters interactions with one another as it is about the action. I felt very invested in the characters emotionally... and that includes the villains.
Like in Dead Mech, her characters felt right to how I had envisioned them when reading them. Also her slightly deranged gleeful description of the action is entirely on point for this story.
I actually did have a few moments where I teared up... but much more often I was laughing gleefully.
A Very good second book to the trilogy well told.
