Frostlands (Splinterlands Book 2) Kindle Edition
"Devotees of near-future science fiction adventures will root for resolute and energetic Rachel on her quest to save Earth."
"This fast read picks up after the death of Julian, the protagonist of Splinterlands, and can be enjoyed as a stand-alone sequel to the first book in the series. Its sense of urgency inspires readers to keep going and a pale glimmer of hope at the end is welcome after the quick, harrowing ride."
Praise for Splinterlands:
Feffer’s confident recitation of world collapse is terrifyingly plausible, a short but encompassing look at world tragedy. "
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
“Feffer’s book is a wild ride through a bleak future, casting a harsh, thought-provoking light on that future’s modern-day roots.”
"Just as it’s especially enjoyable to read science fiction written by real scientists, Feffer offers readers a uniquely well-researched and historically robust argument for why the world turns out the way that it does, which makes it all the more relevant—and frightening. "
—Washington City Paper
"Readers who enjoy dystopian stories that hold more than a light look at political structures and their downfall will more than appreciate the in-depth approach John Feffer takes in his novel."
—Midwest Book Review
"Splinterlands is a short and powerful dystopian novel, framed as an all-too-credible account of what might happen in our lifetimes."
—Climate and Capitalism
"John Feffer is our 21st-century Jack London, and, like the latter's Iron Heel, Splinterlands is a vivid, suspenseful warning about the ultimate incompatibility between capitalism and human survival."
“Feffer’s book, in short, is provocative in the best sense….The dystopic alternative, illustrated so powerfully in Feffer’s Splinterlands, provides us with powerful motivation to shape a better, less splintered, future.”
—W. J. Astore
"Splinterlands paints a startling portrait of a post-apocalyptic tomorrow that is fast becoming a reality today. Fast-paced, yet strangely haunting, Feffer's latest novel looks back from 2050 on the disintegration of world order told through the story of one broken family-- and offers a disturbing vision of what might await us all if we don't act quickly."
—Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickle and Dimed and Living with a Wild God, and founder of the Economic Hardship Reporting Project
“A chilling portrayal of where the politics of division could take us. Now I only hope he writes the sequel to tell us how to avoid it!”
—Naomi Oreskes, co-author of The Collapse of Western Civilization

This book has more action than the first book. 80 year-old Rachel Leopold, the exwife of Julian West, is developing a way to stop global warming but the corporate powers of one of the world’s largest corporations, CR ISPR International, wants to stop her. Arcadia was trying to be a place without violence but they had to set up a defense strategy as they are attacked more and more often. CR ISPR starts to wage assaults on them.
There is a lot of action in the book but also a lot about how to live in harmony with the earth. The setting reminds me of the back-to-the-land movement that had a huge foothold in Vermont and in this area where I live, left a legacy of many organic farms and people who live in an area where there is poverty but also many people who honor the land and the environment. The way FROSTLANDS ends, I think that there must be a third book coming. I hope so.
Geology proves that every "age" lasts for only a period of time.
The only way to stop change is to stop adding to the population.
This man is nuts.
He loves the messenger part he plays assuming everyone will swallow it.
Read Michael Crichton's STATE OF FEAR.
Superior to this garbage
