    Story
    (123)

    Environmental devastation and economic chaos have turned America into a land of horrifying depravity. Assault, theft, sexual abuse, slavery, and murder are commonplace. And a zealous, bigoted tyrant has won his way into the White House. Directly opposed is Lauren Olamina, founder of Earthseed - a new faith that teaches "God Is Change". Persecuted for "heathen" beliefs as much as for having a black female leader, Earthseed's followers face a life-and-death struggle to preserve their vision.

    David says: "Powerful, dark sequel that stands on its own"
    "Down With Earthseed!"
    Overall

    The book had some good ideas but would have been better without the repetitive Earthseed stuff. There wasn't enough content to justify the loving attention this supposed religion received--it was just a bunch of platitudes, over and over and over. The mother-daughter relationship was the most interesting part of the book.
