Here is the propulsive, shockingly plausible sequel to New York Times best seller Daemon.
In one of the most buzzed-about debuts of 2009, Daniel Suarez introduced a terrifying vision of a new world order, controlled by the Daemon, an insidious computer program unleashed by a hi-tech wunderkind, Daemon captured the attention of the tech community, became a New York Times and Indie best seller, and left readers hungry for more. Well, more is here, and it's even more gripping than its predecessor.
In the opening chapters of Freedom, the Daemon is firmly in control, using an expanded network of real-world, dispossessed darknet operatives to tear apart civilization and rebuild it anew. Soon civil war breaks out in the American Midwest, in a brutal wave of violence that becomes known as the Corn Rebellion. Former detective Pete Sebeck, now the Daemon's most powerful - though reluctant - operative, must lead a small band of enlightened humans toward a populist movement designed to protect the new world order. But the private armies of global business are preparing to crush the Daemon once and for all.
In a world of conflicted loyalties, rapidly diminishing human power, and the possibility that anyone can be a spy, what's at stake is nothing less than human freedom's last hope to survive the technology revolution.

I went from reading a techno thriller to a anti democracy and anti capitalist book. This second book just lost me. It's not for me and I lost interest. I finished it but felt it was very predictable once I realized its agenda.
A fantastic sequel to the Daemon book. The continuation of the story of Sobol's daemon and the new order being ushered in through those who have chosen to join it.
I purchased this book before I was even done with the first. It did not let me down at all. The story is fast paced and nuanced and has some excellent characters.

This was a fun and exciting book. That provided solid entertainment while at the same time like Atlas Shrugged delves into "the role of man's mind in existence." Whether you see the same comparison - is up to you. This is a series I would read twice.
enjoyed the first book and this follow on - especially the audiobook experience - looking forward to others from this author - enjoy!
