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.

Awesome. So incredibly entertaining I couldn't stop listening. Get it. You have to hear how it all turns out. I'm a fan now Daniel. You're a badass in my book. Gurner has to win an award for narration.
A must read after not being able to put down Daemon. This sequel envisions a possible new human-tech interfaced world, that is enviable (but not the road to achieve it).
A Science Fiction fan since I could read.. and to a lesser degree Fantasy.... I however enjoy many types of books......
Really enjoyed this follow on from the first book.
I few twists I didn't see, but many I did.
Really enjoyable & recommended
I gave this 3 stars all around only because I do not know if this is a good book or not as I am not a fan of this fantasy type book. If was a bit confusing to me when I compare it to the few fantasy books I have read. Usually they are in the fantasy world or not. This book kept mixing the two together, and I found it to be frustrating rather than interesting.
Yes. While this was lacking in some ways for me, I enjoyed the idea.
I think the idea behind the story was good, but it went on a little long in my opinion.
Amazing sequel to an amazing book. Highly recommended to anyone that is into gripping techno-trillers. Be warned, there is a tons of gore.
