Human Trial II is more than a post-apocalyptic tale, as it is also a satirical commentary on how power can easily corrupt those entrusted to lead, and how leaders easily coerce people to their side using religious and racial divides and prejudices. Through a core group of characters, the author demonstrates the psychology of survival, group acceptance, and crowd mentality. While it was these aspects of the book that kept me interested, I would have liked to have known more about how the environment was faring after the thermal war, how after the devastating attack by the aliens so much of the modern technology survived, as it seemed like after the survivors arrived at The New Frontier the storyline became less of a post-apocalyptic story. I enjoyed the development of the main and secondary characters, and liked that diversity of characters reflected the faces of America. As there were several graphic violent scenes, I enjoyed the comic relief provided by two characters from the Las Vegas airport. Human Trials II is the second book in this trilogy, and while familiarity with the first book is not necessary, readers who want to fully grasp the entire aspect of the thermal war and the alien interactions may want to read it.
I recommend this book to not only fans of science fiction, but also to readers who enjoy storylines about the complexities of human nature, and leadership.
