Publisher's Summary

M. Savage - or Em, as she is called - has made a bewildering and ominous discovery. She and the other young people she was chosen to lead awoke in strange coffins with no memory of their names or their pasts. They faced an empty, unknown place of twisting tunnels and human bones. With only one another to depend on, they searched for answers and found the truth about their terrifying fate. Confronted by a monstrous enemy, they vowed never to surrender - and, by any means, to survive.
The planet Omeyocan may be the sanctuary Em and her comrades seek. But the planet for which they were created turns out not to be a pristine, virgin world. Vestiges of a lost civilization testify to a horrifying past that may yet repeat itself. And when a new enemy creeps from the jungle shadows, Em and her young refugees learn there's nowhere left to run. They face a simple choice: fight or die.
In the midst of this desperate struggle, their unity is compromised from within - and a dangerous zealot devoted to a bloodthirsty god moves to usurp Em's command, threatening to lead them all down a path to violent doom.

Your Newest Addiction

As a fan of Scott Sigler's work, I had to check out the Generations trilogy. Having just read "Alive," I was itching to listen to book 2. I've had my headphones in my ears almost nonstop over the last 24 hours, unable to stop listening. Emma Galvin's voice perfectly personifies how one would imagine a character like Em (M) would sound; she also reflects the emotions that Em would feel as the story progresses. Can't wait for the final book!

How can it get even better?

Man! So outstanding! Just like Scott Sigler promised, the 2nd part of this trilogy is more engaging than the first. Because I am very familiar with all of his books, I am able to make many connections between all. I am SO jonesing for the next part!

Gods Damn You Sigler

have followed scott's podcast for the last two years and the generations triology is his stand works. he has cranked the tension upto 11 this time and after getting half way through the weekly podcasts, I couldn't wait another week to find out whats going to happen so bought the Audio book.
Galven's performance is perfect and you trully believe that she is the reluctant leader Em. I tried to think who else could narrate and embody the characters as she does, it's proven to be a difficult and very short list.
At 35 I really shouldn't enjoy teenage dystopia fiction this much but I have to admit I've become a 'Junky' for this series.
Only complaint is that i have to wait another 9 months to the final installment.
Gods Damn You Sigler.

A great science fiction master piece

Scott Sigler is a mastermind and his book only demonstrates it even better. the creatures, the social structures, the new worlds and technologies. So fantastic, yet so believable and domeatic. Completely believable. Though I have to say, I would be punching double circles left and right into their little asshat mouths.

Sigler for younger readers.

Would you consider the audio edition of Alight: Book Two of the Generations Trilogy to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version cant say.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Em, she is the main character but her reasoning is often sound. She may have capable people around her but she shows how a leader can carry the 'show' by themselves.

What does Emma Galvin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I'd only heard alive by her before but her performance was good I could always clearly identify the characters that were speaking. Her tones while using them seemed to reflect their emotion's accurately. Her voice is plain nice to listen to it has a

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Em and Spingate in a few scenes made me had emotional reactions not when they were in danger but the character interactions between each other it showed how good friends can really hurt each other. I didn't move me to tears but it really help me empathize with Em and Spingate as well. Most of the exchanges between them that ended with hurt feels were under pressing circumstances and both parties seemed to regret them.

Any additional comments?

The character Aronofsky seemed to go from well meaning but mistaken individual. I know he was always looking for power but like Em he has always wanted the best for his people, though admittedly he think those lost weren't necessary. But I think his actions make sense when the grown ups come as he basically sees them as his gods. His actions in the last book seem to be forgotten by Em and if she had perhaps thanked him for saving her life things would not have transpired in such drastic way.
