I am reviewing an advanced copy that was provided to me.

Wow! This book is just as good as the first. This had no slow parts. It starts out in a FEMA camp for refugees a few months after the first book ends. So you realize pretty quickly that even though the book picks up awhile after the first and it appears to be a different story the background of the first book makes things become clear what is going on and what the hammer contains.
Character development is pretty quick but at a very good pace. After all, these are all new characters we are reading about. But the development of these characters is awesome. You are fully back into the story even though it appears to be a new story without much connection to the first other than the needles.
The main characters come right to the front of the story pretty quick and you even like them all from the start. There is the guy in charge of the FEMA camp and his buddy. He is not his deputy but someone he trusts. Then there is this young girl that shows up, Right from the start if you have read the first book you realize she is infected with the needles. Also, there is an older guy and his laptop.
The story wastes no time getting the ball rolling and it is off and running. While all the characters are different you have an almost instant love for them. Of course, there is the bad guy that you want to see him hurt badly and you want him not to succeed. He is a power hungry military bully. Who would appear the have come to power via a nefarious way.
Needless to say, the story bounces between the two worlds with the needle people becoming more powerful once they are back on the other world. Then eventually the first book and the second become one story and all that you had questions about becomes known and it is all fused into one story. I don’t want to say too much about that without spoiling it.
Honestly, the way the author has spun the stories together into one from a seeming wide berth is absolutely great! This is what earns it the 5th for this second book. If you read the first book read this one you will love it.
If you have not read the first one. Put this down and get the first one read it first. This story is good on its own but it will be a much better story having read the first book first!

I can recommend this to everyone but please go read the first story first.
