Better the second time!
on November 11, 2012
As I wrote in my review of Dark Grid, that book was a decent read but pretty corny with a lot of extraneous dialog.
Not so with sequel, the writing has really matured. No longer are there pages full of military-style "in" jokes and way too much sappiness.
In this sequel, we are joined again by the same list of characters from the first in the series. In addition we get to find out more about what happened to the neighborhood that was left behind and the arduous journey that members of that communinity take to find out just where Eric and the others went.
Finally, there some additional complications that appear from a schism that has developed within the remnants of the military at large which makes for a very interesting and unexpected sub-plot. It seems to me like there is a further book in this series forthcoming, and I for one can't wait to see what is in store for those in Natchez Trace!
