This book follows Leon/Freya, Grace, and now their father Tom back in time and towards the present. Leon and Freya are surviving alone when they find a light at a radio station and soon discover a message which says they can go to Southampton and be rescued by American ships. Deciding to take a risk that the message is still good, they make their way until a savage attack by the virus leads to being saved and brought to an organized group in a castle. They soon learn that the virus can be identified by its intolerance to salt water and both pass the test. As time continues, their camp finds Grace- and nothing will remain the same.
On the other side of things, we follow Grace and Leon's father, Tom, right after the virus struck and how he has survived and what has been happening there along the timeline of the previous and current books. These sections felt a little disconnected because we are flipping back and forth in time between the different people. However, it's interesting to hear about other human strongholds that survived the initial attacks.
This second book is an intense continuation of the first and does a pretty good job of recapping the previous events throughout so that you don't need to read them back to back to remember what is going on. However, I will say that this one also ends with a cliffhanger, so I am expecting another book to come from this series. These books are definitely better suited for older audiences as there is a lot of violence and gore, plus some frightening situations. They also pose some interesting questions about humanity and our morality.
Overall, it's a fast-paced, at times horrifying, and intriguing look at what another life form might be like and the consequences for humanity. Please note that I received an ARC from the publisher through netgalley. All opinions are my own.
In the first book of the series readers met young teens Leon and his sister Grace as the world began getting news of a virus that was quickly spreading around the world. Along with their mother Leon and Grace had fled the city to avoid being infected.
Now the story has jumped two years after the end of the first book as Leon has been surviving by living above a store while the world seems to be recovering from the virus. When hearing a radio broadcast for survivors Leon thinks it’s time to make the trek to see if they can be rescued.
I’ve read and watched a lot of different takes on this type of story over the years anywhere from zombies to viruses or nuclear bombs so honestly when picking up the first book I had just hoped for likable characters and story but not really expected newness. Can I just say I’m glad I was wrong? This series goes another step into the whole infection genre and that was a step onto the creepy train with a thinking mutated virus that stays ahead of the game. After another cliffhanger ending I’m now excited to see what the author could possibly have in store next.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
I seriously did not think the author could outdo book 1 with the craziest and scariest premise I've ever seen for an apocalypse, but he did!!
PLR starts out with our survivors, Freya and Leon from the first book, having made it through a couple years of PA living thinking the virus that caused the end of the world had disappeared. While scavenging, they come across a broadcast repeating that help is coming and to make their way to a location to be saved. Not sure whether the broadcast is new or was made at the beginning of the end, they decide to make the journey to find out.
What they find is that the virus has been busy.
I sure hope I don't have nightmares now! Be warned that this book does end on a cliffhanger. But, dang it, I need to find out what happens next!!
*Much thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebook Fire for the advance copy!*
