Bridgers 1 taught us the personalities of the two main protagonists. Bridgers 2 showed more of the relationship between them.
Bridging into a tenuous world is more than just difficult. It's deadly. With a home world disintegrating at an exponential rate, there is little choice of where to Bridge. In the world Infinity and Desmond find themselves, there is little more than survival on their minds. When they bridge back, their objections to bridging refugees to this world are ignored. Infinity's predictions prove to be right on spot. Survival on this world will be the number one thing on each refugee's mind. With only 500 out of 700 (approx) refugees surviving the bridge in, the refugees learn that they themselves will never again see life like they had before. Probably not their children, either.
With the safeguards for which world to bridge to being removed, there is plenty of 'bad things' that can (and probably will) happen. Thus, the need for Bridgers 3. I can't wait for it.
A GOD Dammed short STORY!!!!!
NOT A BOOK!!!
PLEASE STOP SELLING THESE AS BOOKS!!!!!!!
OR ELSE SELL THEM A 50 TO 90 CENT PRICE POINT!!!!!
I WAS TRULY UPSET THAT AFTER 30 MINUTES OF READING, THAT I WAS 1/2 WAY THROUGH THE BOOK. I'M NOT A FAST READER.
This was an ARC in exchange for an honest review. However, I did purchase a copy because this is a series I will read again.

Earth is experiencing its death throes, and The SafeTrek sites are poised to begin “bridging” colonists/refugees in lots of 240 (arriving on a schedule of one group per hour) to a place and time in Earth’s alternate history where they might survive and continue the human race.
Two ‘Bridgers”, Infinity (who has survived for four years in this role, during which time almost every other “Bridger” she knew died doing their jobs) and Desmond (a survivor - civilian tourist - of Infinity’s last mission, who has committed his life to serving as the newest Bridger) will have 36 hours to provide leadership and protection to those refugees, and then they are completely on their own.
Bridgers arrive at their destination, naked and hairless, unable to bring any weapons or survival equipment with them. They have their hands and feet and their brains. And they will have to face enemies who are barely humanoid, are much larger than humans, far stronger than humans, and can hunt in packs.
This is another well-constructed novel in the four-book Bridgers series. It is complex, but not overwhelmingly so. Like the first book, - Bridgers: The Lure of Infinity - it is character-driven. The characters feel authentic, and whether or not the reader feels comfortable relating to them, they are diverse and interesting.
If you get this far into the Bridgers series, be glad there are two more novels and one prequel still available. And if you haven’t heard of, or picked up, books in Stan C. Smith’s Diffusion series, there is still a lot more high-quality writing waiting for you to experience.
Infinity is back, this time with Desmond along for the ride as her Bridger partner. She's still as badass as before, but she not only battles indigenous lifeforms on the new world, but also divergent opinions of her fellow colonists, who unlike the Bridgers, have a one-way ticket. She must balance how far they must go to survive with how much of their humanity they are prepared to leave behind.
The author writes pacy, exciting and thoughtful books, and Bridgers 2 is no different. If you enjoyed the first in the series, you absolutely have to read this one.
The book is short and quick, like the previous one, and keeps the original formula, just with different stakes than protecting 3 "tourists". The whole works, somewhat, even if it often frustrates you. I find myself wishing that it did include the local's perspective, even if I can see it would completely change the tone and story. Worth seeing to the end, if not absolutely good (I hesitated between 3 and 4 stars a lot).
