After rescuing their daughter, Marie, from corporate-controlled Earth, Millicent and Ryker thought they were safe on their off-world paradise. They were wrong.
Toton, once thought the weakest conglomerate, is now dominating ruined Earth with a sinister new technology. By harvesting minds for use in their supercomputers, they’re enslaving the best and brightest humans to further their agenda. Millie and Ryker know that it’s just a matter of time before Toton realizes the biggest prize—Marie’s “gifted” mind—is merely a rocket ride away.
As the anticorporate Rebel Nation and rival companies alike scramble to thwart Toton’s inhuman machinations, society teeters on the brink. No longer safe, Millie and Ryker must sacrifice their hard-won freedom to return home and stand with the burgeoning revolution—outmanned, outgunned, and aided only by a most unexpected ally on the inside: Millie’s nemesis and estranged sister, Danissa.
But can a family’s love survive greed gone mad in a world that measures human life on a balance sheet?
This book basically didn’t stop at all. There was a point where I was actually wondering if everyone was going to die. There was a lot of death, mainly from red shirts, but the people I wanted to live, lived.
Again there was a lot of technical speak and my eyes would glaze over, I actually think there was more this time, so I didn’t always know what was going on. I’m actually a little unsure about the ending, I think I understand what happened, but there was just so much going on, and people were doing stuff with tech that isn’t real and it was confusing and I didn’t really care about that I just wanted to know if the people were alright.
My favorite character, Trent, wasn’t in it as much as I would have liked, and was constantly belittled and made fun of, it annoyed me because what he was saying was what I was most interested in.
The book had a lot of the same themes as the last one only the stakes were higher, this time two worlds. Lots of kicking butt, lots of close escapes, and just general all out chaos. Really wondering if there will be another book and if there is what will it be about?
