Set in a post-apocalyptic New York, the trilogy continues in this second book. Having read the whole trilogy before actually having time to write a review for this book, I have to say that this is my favorite book by far because of the heroine Jenna.

Jenna is a very interesting main female character, because before the electromagnetic pulse wiped off the grid she was in part hiding from her own sexuality. Living in the pecking order FEMA camp allowed her to explore, indulge, and discover her power as a sexual being in the camp-operated brothel called the Tracks. She could not have done so in the pre-FEMA days. So when she was informed of life beyond the Tracks and was given the choice to leave the camp, she chose to stay with the life she did know--until her life was threatened and she made a run for it. However, her lifestyle in the Tracks also came at a price and she discovers that she may very well be a sexual addict, someone who copes with stress through sex. Of course, this challenge threatens her budding relationship with Ken Barker, the main male character of this story who was sent to track her down.

Ken Barker, a lawyer before the pulse hit, was initiated as a soldier when he was handed the blood-stained uniform of a dead man and an operating gun. Although by outward appearances, he looks like the soldiers who have fallen into the FEMA camp status quo, he still utilizes his critical thinking capacities, reserves his integrity as a woman-respecting man, and starts to question what he has been told to be true after hunting Jenna down. After contemplating what transpired at and beyond the camp, Ken sees how the FEMA camp has been run and should be run.

I had some issues with the last quarter of the book; for one, there are some definite whacky politics going on with the circumstances involved in the apocalypse. Not to get into spoilers, but there're more mentions of the "evil UN" and how anarchy is completely preferable to any sort of organization (even democracy? really?) and how wonderful "being a 50s housewife" and "having lots of babies" are. I was a bit tenuous to begin with because the "heroine" of this one was portrayed as a sex addict in the first book -- not because that's in and of itself /bad/, but because it's very difficult to portray that sort of issue with sensitivity. Unfortunately, this is held up; the main character frequently refers to herself as "whore" because of her behavior.

SPOILER SPACE:

The fact that she has a sexual encounter with someone who isn't the "hero", seemingly enjoys it a great deal, and then feels guilty when he confronts her about it and lays down an ultimatum -- well. They'd never once had a conversation about being monogamous or committed to one another.

By the time they got to the "free town" of Letliv at the end, where there's no rule of law except shunning and how "an armed society is a polite society", my "uh oh, conservative whackadoos ahoy" alarms were ringing full force. The fact that the "UN World Government" is supposed to be the bad guy and invading? The way that literally any sort of government is painted as either totally evil or totally incompetent? The way women are happiest when they're barefoot and pregnant and "kept" by their big strong heroes?

Yeah. I'm not interested in reading the third. Shame -- I find apocalyptic stories to be interesting, because you can tell very powerful stories about what humans do when the rules of society go out the window. It's just that in these books, the humans are basically morons. Alas.

Unfortunately, I didn't like The Escape. I wish I did, but nothing in the story worked for me. All the characters suffered from a serious case of TSTL (too stupid to live). It must be one of those highly contagious diseases people are catching at the FEMA camps mentioned in the book. Because whoa. Their reasoning for doing some of the things they did made zero sense. They rarely used logic. It was unbelievable and a bit hilarious. I have no idea how they managed to survive everything that happened in this book, and I can't comprehend how they're even still living after the 'Pulse,' which happened a year ago and is the reason technology and most humans in America were wiped out. I guess these people are seriously lucky or everyone else around them is just dumber. Those are the only reasons that make sense to me.

I don't want to end this without saying at least something good about The Escape. So, I've thought of three things I liked. One would be that, although I haven't read the first book and all the books in the trilogy are connected, I didn't feel lost while reading this sequel. I was also able to read this fairly quickly. It was easy to get through. The final thing would be that I didn't get a headache, even though I wasn't enjoying it.

If you're still interested in reading this book or the entire trilogy, then that's your choice. I'm not going to tell anyone what they should or shouldn't read. But as for me, The Escape just wasn't for me, and I don't have any plans to read the other books.
