This book was completly wonderful. The entire time I was reading it I could bairly put it down. Character developiment was outstanding and the plot line was building the entire time, it was everything I had hoped it it would be after reading the first one and I can not wait for the release of the third one. A diffinet must read in my oppinion.

Format: Paperback
Starting six months after the first book, the crew of Compton Pit are still battling mother nature, still hoping to find a reason why all the animals, insects, birds and creatures of the sea, turned on humans beings.

One thing that has kept them safe in Compton Pit from the creatures of world is a vital piece of electronics. But when its stolen, Sid and his crew must set out to find it, before word of its existence changes the balance of power. But their trip becomes a journey that they never thought they take as the they track the device to the last aircraft carrier in the known world, now converted into a floating city. It is here that Sid, Caps, Lena, Darcy and Noah confront their future. Here they find the device, and here they find an enemy who was once a friend.

Like the first book, this one moves at a swift pace. And while the gore is kept at minimum, Matthews continues to kill animals in a very glorious sort of way. The humor is ramped up a bit, but I found the pop culture references a bit tedious after a while - but I would probably be using them too.

The concept of the aircraft carrier becoming a city was well thought out, and I could almost envision it. The military come off as a bit wacky, but generally more sane than in other end-of-the-world thrillers.

While we get no more closer to understanding why the animals went crazy, we do get the real reason why Sid wanted the return of the Mimi.

My only complaint is the total lack of human life. People die horribly, left and right, and there is little remorse. While I suppose there is a reason for it -after a decade of seeing loved ones die at the hands of Lassie, Garfield and Tony the Tiger, you probably have little in the way of emotions.

Still, it's a bit disturbing.

Format: Paperback
This book is a direct continuation of the first boook, New Wilderness, and follows our characters as the search for supplies and information on the high seas. All the aggressive strangeness and action of the first book, with new challenges and new settings make this one a definite read. Get it while you can. And keep the dog tied up and all the windows closed while you're reading it.
