The sequel to Agenda 21, from #1 New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck.
“I knew those men were our enemies, but they, like everyone else in the Republic, were nothing more than servants. Rule followers. They had no choice. But I did. I had a choice and I made it. I knew then and there that, no matter what happened, I would never

Oh just read it.... I recommend reading the first book and going right into this one. These books will open your eyes. You will begin to see everything around you in your everyday life.

First this book is not actually written by Glenn Beck so if you hate books with a political agenda but loved the hunger games then just skip the intro and the epilogue and this is a really good book.

If you love the hunger games but wished they would explain how their world got to that point these book explains how that could happen.

There has to be a third book. I'm not ready for the story to end.

The population is already controlled and enslaved; it's maybe 20 years in. Some remember what it was like, before. But the "new" people, the children, the young adults, have no such memory, and the people who "do" remember, don't dare tell them because knowledge is banned. In this new world you are required to do what you are told, and that is all, and when you are deemed unnecessary (for whatever reason) you will be "recycled."
(The author never told us what "recycled" meant, exactly, but I

Simply Outstanding!

Glenn Beck nails this sequel and sheds the spotlight even more on the well-played out scenario of destruction Agenda 21 could bring to American soil.

After reading this book and especially the afterword Agenda 21 scares me, but I am glad that I read it and have now read several other non-fiction items related to Agenda 21 to become more educated. This book was a fast read. Parts of it were pretty fictional, but it was overall a good story.

An excellent read and a worthy sequel to Agenda 21. Yes, there is obvious room for another sequel to this one. A core of freedom lovers has been established but the enemy is not subdued. Even though the immediate threat of pursuit is gone, the future threat of further pursuit is still very real. Will the little family succeed in finding a new home where they can live in freedom? Will the good people they left behind be able to remain in the shadows? Will the free family encounter other compounds ...more

I really liked the first Agenda 21 book and had high hopes for Into the Shadows, but it just wasn’t very good. There were giant plot holes that left me yelling in my head (and occasionally out loud) about how it didn’t make sense. For example, the little family walked for days and were still very near the mansion where the compound leaders live and the farm commune where the food is grown. That’s fine and explained by saying the river they were following meanders. The problem is, they ended up b ...more

I read this without reading the first one, not realizing it was a sequel. It gives enough backstory to stand on its own, so don't feel like you can't read this one without first reading its predecessor. It was an easy and quick read, told mainly through the eyes of a young woman, Emmiline, who finds a way to escape from the compound she has grown up in after it becomes clear that her child would be resettled somewhere else away from her. It gives a chilling hypothesis of what life would be like ...more

"It was once named America, but now it is just “the Republic. Following the worldwide implementation of a UN-led program called Agenda 21, the once-proud people of America have become obedient residents who live in barren, brutal Compounds and serve the autocratic, merciless Authorities." Yes, this book is fiction. However, this book will open your eyes and you will begin to see everything around you in your everyday life. There is a potential that events in this book could happen as a result of ...more

What a fun read! I really enjoyed the first book in this series but I loved this one! Instead of focusing primarily on Emmeline's story we are allowed to delve deeper into other characters as well. There was more action and an understanding of how and why the world is the way it is now. I love the fact that the story revolves around freedom. Ah freedom! This story makes me feel very blessed in regards to that. Also, it was awesome to see the characters grow with each other. It also contains a vi ...more

In book two of what I hope will be a Agenda 21 trilogy, Into the Shadows picks up exactly where book one ends, as we follow our heroes into the unknown. They flee for their lives from humanity's corruption and fight for survival among nature's provisions.

Into the Shadows moves the story along nicely, introducing more characters and bonding together others. Though it answers many questions, it still leaves some unanswered. Hopefully a third book will bring the saga to a rightful conclusion.

Recommends it for: Anyone who enjoys reading dystopian novels
The sequel to Agenda 21, I found it to be a great explanation of what happened to the characters, how the world came to be as it was, and just another awesome dystopian novel. If you enjoyed reading The Hunger Games and Divergent, this is another series to pick up and read.

Full disclosure- this was an audiobook someone gave me. I only listened to it because I had read that Glenn Beck has seen the light and is no longer a card carrying right wing extremist, so I gave it a shot. Truth be told, it's an engaging story and very well performed. It is the sequel to an earlier and probably more biased novel. The premise is that environmental regulations taken to the extreme would result in some sort of totalitarian regime and so should be avoided at all costs. Sound famil ...more

I had only read one Glenn Beck book, The Christmas Sweater, so when I looked at a list of his books, I was intrigued by the fact that he had also written a book that was categorized as a thriller. I rarely read thrillers, and this seemed NOT in his usual genre. So I picked up a copy of the first Agenda book, not knowing there were two. I ate it up! I loved it! It was amazing! I was like, "If you liked 'The Giver' by Lois Lowry, you'll like this book." And then I found myself reading Agenda 21 wh ...more

This book was just more of the first... anti-environmental propaganda. A good story ruined by an agenda, but not the agenda the book is named after.

What are the race politics? This is based in America and we are steeped in racial issues. Those just didn't disappear.
Where are all the gays? This book is so heterosexual it hurts.

In this book we learn that "sustainability meetings" eventually became "reeducation meetings" without any examples of how that happened.... The entire book is swamped in

An exciting and entertaining sequel to the first Agenda 21 book. My only complaint is its promotion of the Bible/Christianity; religion is just another form of slavery, and God is just like a dictator.

Plot seldom lags. Not my genre but held my interest. Well narrated & recommended for dystopian lovers. Kind references of Christ Jesus, no graphics (offenses) although there are disturbing references to fascism (Nazi's) in a future era.

I remember devouring the first book in this series and I really wanted to follow up and see what had happened. It is now twenty years in the future and some individuals do not know what a free country is. They are used to be held under control, being told what to do but for a few individuals they want their freedom back and fleeing the compound and living out in the forest is what they desire.

This is an engaging dystopian following book one. They both have an agenda to educate the public to the dangers of the Agenda 21 policies. My rating 4.25.

Americans no longer own their own land or choose their own jobs in this society. The people have been relocated to government compounds where they live under the dictates of the Republic authorities who make the rules. Food and water are rationed and children are separated from their parents. Emmeline was able to get a transfer to a new job wor

I can't rate it much above okay. The author's distaste for the "agenda" was just too prevalent, shoved in the reader's face too much to enjoy the story. That, coupled with the prevalent sexist references (in narration, not even character thought/speech) and the lack of character connection, just made it an unpleasant, lackluster read.
