Dark Meadows opens with Autumn and the other L.A. survivors building a new life in the seemingly idyllic town of Hoover, though the threat of another attack from evil Front leader Karl is always hanging over them. A deadly emergency in their sister town of Las Vegas causes a crew from Hoover - including Autumn and Grey, whose relationship has hit a snag - to ride to the rescue in a sand storm. There, odd things keep happening to cut off their contact with Hoover, and Autumn and Grey must solve the mystery of who's behind all the trouble ... and whether their relationship can be saved.
I liked Dark Meadows just as much as City of Angels. I love dystopian books and seeing how the survivors cope with the new world that's left to them, and we get lots of that good gritty stuff here. Dark Meadows is like the second act of The Stand, when the survivors are building a community in Boulder (one of my favorite parts of that book).
The relationship stuff between Autumn and Grey is in a new phase, but it's just as poignant and interesting as it was the first go-round. Autumn's friendships with Ben, Rissi, Connie and Shad - along with some new characters - are beautifully drawn as well. I think one reason Autumn is such a lovable protagonist is her loyalty and love for her new "family."
The cliffhanger at the end of the book is making me crazy, though. I want the third book! Paris? Yes, please!
In this book Autumn has started to rebuild her like in the Hoover Settlement but her new found happiness is challenged when an old foe comes back to destroy the life that she has rebuilt.
An awesome followup to the first book, couldn't put the book down. Can't wait to get my copy of Autumn in the City of Lights!
