What is perhaps most interesting about Ping Two is that it manages to bridge a post-apocalyptic survival adventure with a touching human story. The main survivors, Lucy, Travis, Christopher, Sarah, Kate, Jack, Rose, and Kevin are all very real, with individual flaws, ambitions, and strengths. The story blends together their interpersonal relationships, some loving and some sad, in a setting that is truly unique and interesting.
Travis (the young boy) was my favorite character because he seemed like the glue that held this "family" together. The author's incorporation of telepathic powers was a unique complexity that served to better interconnect the characters and events. The writing itself was skillful and the editing professional. This is a story as much about the people who survived as it is the apocalypse they survived. Well done!
The sequel continues from the point where the first book ended as the few survivors who have managed to find one another begin to build their new lives together.
There's a lot of tension as we wonder whether the plague that did not get them the first time around will come back with a vengeance.
New characters are introduced and some of the survivors experience jealousy and disappointment when their earlier expectations are not met.
Travis is growing up and continues to help the adults gain control over their telepathic powers -- for Travis, this control is innate and exceptional -- for the adults, luckily they have Travis to mentor them.
Both books give the reader the feeling of being a part of the story, rather than just an outside observer. There are lots of OMG moments. Both books would make really good movies.
One event that was very sad for me was the untimely death of one of my favorite personalities from Ping 1. More, please!
While it is possible to read "Ping Two" first, it's recommended you start with "From the Apocalypse".
