About the Author

Linda Andrews lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her husband, three children and a menagerie of domesticated animals. While she started writing a decade ago, she always used her stories to escape the redundancy of her day job as a scientist and never thought to actually combine her love of fiction and science. DOH! After that Homer Simpson moment, she allowed the two halves of her brain to talk to each other. The journeys she’s embarked on since then are dark, twisted and occasionally violent, but never predictable. If you’ve loved one of her most demented creations so far, she’d love to hear from you at lindaandrews at lindaandrews dot net

4.0 out of 5 stars Continued good PA fiction September 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Linda Andrews continues the saga of the post-Redaction catastrophe with this second book of a multi-part series. New characters are introduced but all your loved (and hated) characters from the first book are back.

Andrews continues her unique writing style - I recommend you start with Part One, Extinction Level Event, in this series, but when you "start" you'll feel as if you've been slipstreamed right into the middle of a grand plot arc. Andrews likes to reveal bits and pieces of backstory in the middle of character musings - blink and you'll miss some interesting stuff - and there is so, so much still to be told, including how the Redaction began and how humanity will survive the multiple plagues (and whole-country migrations) that follow.

With tighter editing, this could really become a classic of post-apocalyptic fiction to rival Stephen King. Andrews still mixes up "passed" with "past" and she has other homonym errors throughout the book. And the final part of Book Two seems almost farcical in its dealing with true evil. Andrews weaves two main memes through both books - vengeance and forgiveness - and I think she got a bit trite at the end of this book, but I'll forgive her in hopes that Book Three will give her a chance to continue her obvious progression as a writer.

There are enough unanswered questions for at many more books in this well-crafted universe, including my personal hope for prequels. Thank you Linda Andrews for your efforts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Book One November 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Of course, I'm just a simple reader so this review isn't as scholarly as others you will read. Heck, I can't even spell as good as the average chump. That being said, I enjoyed the next chapter in the adventures of our post-pandemic heroes.
In my opinion, in order for the good-guys to be really good the bad-guys have to be really bad. This book delivers on that aspect. I deeply enjoyed the comeuppance bestowed on the false preacher. Definately cool. I also enjoyed the rebirth of a heart-broken character as he becomes a surrogate "papa" to three young foundlings. There was also a couple of good survivalist ideas that would be good in any crisis, not just in a post-pandemic world. While this tome doesn't rise to the level of the great stories of old it will definately keep your attention. I enjoyed the journey.

I do not recommend this book. The premise is okay, but the author drones on and on and on about details that merely take up space. When a single sentence will do, the author will write six paragraphs. Pages are devoted to how characters will get into an abandoned restaurant. More pages are used for characters to decide if, or when, they will listen to an importance broadcast. There are details about who thought what, who said what over the transceiver, who did what in a truck, or how a dead flashlight was lost. Few readers care whether someone looked for an aspirin or searched around for a throat lozenge. All this is supposed to be about how the characters escape a reactor meltdown, but they plod through dialogue devoted to minute details. At 25% of the book, the meltdown hasn't happened and the characters aren't far from where they started. The author seems to know her science stuff. Yet, I'd recommend Don Pendleton, James Axler, or David Robbins for adventure reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Toooo slooooooow November 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read the first book and finding it interesting I thought the second would be the same. I read the first book in two days and it has now been over a month and I have no interest in finishing the second. The book will drag on for pages about getting coffee or eating a MRE. There is at least four groups that the author is telling a story about and skips around too much between them. When 99% of the population is dead or dying do you really need to have a love story subplot going on? It almost seems as it the author was trying to stretch out the book with long detailed descriptions of the most mundane topics. I will have to get really bored to finish the book so I can't recommend this to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars If anything, better than Part 1 June 10, 2013
By J. Huff
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this sequel to Redaction: Extinction Level Event. Often sequels don't do it for me, because it seems like they usually don't have the punch of the original. That was not the case with this storyline. In this book the story continued to get developed and became, if anything, more interesting.

As far as post-apocalyptic literature goes, this series is one of my favorites. I give Linda massive props for presenting a researched, developed, plausible and realistic apocalypse, including the reactions of society.

Definitely recommend. (Unless you are looking for zombies. You won't find the Zombie Apocalypse in this one.)
