    It's Change Year 25, a generation after high-energy technology died in a catastrophe most of the human race didn't survive. The children born after the Change are now starting to take center stage - and Whoever or Whatever was behind the Change itself may be taking a hand in their rivalries. An expedition has travelled to Nantucked across a strange and hostile continent to find some answers.

    Story

    worth the listen, this is a good continuation of the series. I wish there wasn't so much repeating of details though.

    To Captain Lee Harden, Project Hometown feels like a distant dream and the completion of his mission seems unattainable. Wounded and weaponless, he has stumbled upon a group of survivors that seems willing to help. But a tragedy in the group causes a deep rift to come to light and forces him into action. In the chaos of the world outside, Lee is pursued by a new threat: someone who will stop at nothing to get what he has.

    "As bad as the first in the series"

    Story

    I bought it with along with the first in the series, and after listening to the first in the series I wouldn't have listened to this but I already had it and was hoping it would get better ... it didn't. Here's what I wrote about the first book in the series.
    "I wanted to like this story, had a lot of good story pieces but the writing was quite inane for a main character (Lee) who is supposed to be a highly trained battle hardened special forces type soldier. Instead the main character (Lee) moves from one self-inflicted crisis to another and only escapes due to stupid luck and contrived circumstances. Lee is clearly not a highly trained soldier and is a slow learner who consistently makes stupid decisions without any strategic thinking. This makes what could have been a good story line difficult to stick with."
    well, those are still my summation of the book/series.

    In a steel-and-lead-encased bunker 20 feet below the basement level of his house, a soldier waits for his final orders. On the surface, a plague ravages the planet, infecting over 90% of the populace. The bacterium burrows through the brain, destroying all signs of humanity and leaving behind little more than base, prehistoric instincts. The infected turn into hyper-aggressive predators, with an insatiable desire to kill and feed. Someday soon, the soldier will have to open the hatch to his bunker, and step out into this new wasteland, to complete his mission....

    Mike Naka says: "top notch! highly recommended!"
