I am a fan of apocalyptic fiction, but c'mon why do we need to weave a mystical treasure hunt into this. The book was fine standing on it's own without the ancient artifact.

First the good. Having enjoyed the first book I was looking forward to this sequel. This story has the same good pacing and blend of action and character development. The narrator is excellent. I have two negatives. As other reviewers have noted, this book is short-too short. Not enough bang for the buck. I quit on the "A. American" books for the same reason, diminishing return on investment. My second negative was the introduction by the author of a metaphysical element in one of the sub-plots. This struck me as jarringly incongruous with the rest of the narrative. As soon as I heard it I GROANED. And its not even original. Its basically an Indiana Jones rip-off. I will not buy the next installment whenever it becomes available. The combination of these two negatives is a deal-breaker.

the story is good but is not original as is clearly copied from the hopf series. each character the same but with a different name. unlike the first book this one adds a few new ideas but at the end is the big reminder as it ends the same as hope's book. I'm not excited to read the 3rd book as it is completely predictable. disappointed in this author who just copies others.
