This second book in the series is a step up from the first book in every way. The characters more fleshed out, the setting is described and brought to life, and the plot is far reaching and important.

So why only three stars? I gave the first book three stars. If this one's better, why does it get the same score?

This book does the first book a disservice. It makes Mimi irrelevant. She has two viewpoint chapters in this one, neither of which add much of value, and is barely mentioned outside of t

Michael Kilman is an extremely talented author. His prose is beautiful, and the imagination he must have to come up with the plot for this book, and the previous in this series, floors me.
I was breathless when I read this, sometimes I had to take breaks because I was too nervous about what was going to happen, I cried, had goosebumps. Amazing read. The evilness is chilling, the heroes multifaceted, the setting imaginative.
I recommend Kilman to everyone, friends, family, workmates, HERE.

This series is simply amazing. I finished book one in a day, and the second book wasn't long to follow. Definitely a page-turner; the prose is eloquent and enticing in such a way that it keeps you hooked from the very first page. I always NEED to know what's next and I just can't stop reading! I very highly recommend this book, and the series as a whole! ...more

After reading the first book in this series, Mimi of the Nowhere, I became very attached to Mimi and her new friends and lover. I did enjoy all of the new characters the author introduces in this sequel, and it added a lot to the world and plot within the story. I just wished I had gotten more time with Mimi, the original protagonist. Instead, it spends a lot more time with new characters; similar to A Song of Ice and Fire. Despite that, I gained new perspectives and started rooting for new char ...more

The second book introduces many new characters but the story is a continuation from the first one. I love the story and how easy and fun it is to read, for a sci-fi book. Michael is a very talented author and professor. You can tell that he puts a lot of his experiences into the book. Can’t wait for the third book!

This second installment of the series had me just as hooked as the first one, Mimi of the Nowhere. The characters are engaging and diverse and you are instantly on their side as they move through this post-apocalyptic world. Kilman’s world is rich in context and detail, unlike any sci-fi I have ever read: migrating cities, superstorms, mysterious Orders and villains. I highly recommend!
