Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "The series goes out with a bang"
    Would you listen to Freedom (TM) again? Why?

    Yes, it's a very exciting read and keeps you on your toes with excitement and anticipation.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The parallels drawn to our modern society. Even though it's all fiction, there's enough there for the reader to see how possible it may be for such a thing to happen, maybe not to such a degree but close enough to get you thinking.


    What about Jeff Gurner’s performance did you like?

    Each character had his/her own voice done perfectly, and Jeff was able to switch between them very well. Made it seem like a whole cast was involved.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Some of the events that happened on the Fosin farm and the subsequent city were pretty powerful. Kept me on my toes for a while.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent follow up to the first book, and a perfect ending to an amazing story. Definitely recommend.

    Story
    "In my Top 5 books of all time combined with Daemon"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Freedom (TM) to be better than the print version?

    No, I read the book before the Audible version arrived. The Audible versions lack dictionary, work look-up, etc.however when you have a great reader their inflections can add a lot to the stories. For some reason I find myself laughing out load at times when listening to books but rarely when reading.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. Between Daemon and Freedom I really began to like some of the characters. Hard to say without a spoiler.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Gurner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    So far this is my favorite but Jeff does read for over 30 other titles including some Star Wars books and some Mark Sullivan thrillers.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Remember, if you're not playing the game, it's playing you...


    Any additional comments?

    Favorite line: "Hi. If you're watching this video, it means you've just tried to...." Read or listen to the story and I think you'll agree..

    Story
    "Best book I have read in the past year"
    What did you love best about Freedom (TM)?

    It is easy to recognize this dystopia...not so different from the present. The quandary is what to do about it, This book brings you into a world where small community based groups have a plan, can make things happen...and they do not end up in some duel to the death. The beauty of this book is that it is not heavy handed. It feels real in its descriptions of the problems and inspires you to be one of the group that can see their way clear of the horror created by the powers that be. The trilogy is terrific and all should be read.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes. I did not want to put it down but did not want for it to end, either.


    Any additional comments?

    it made me hopeful. It made me want to engage in the world and join with others to take the world back.

    Story
    "WOW... went beyond my expectations."

    Suarez has solidified himself as one of my favorite authors. In this sequel to the Daemon the same characters are back but have been transformed by the Daemon. Sebeck, Ross, Merrit, Phillips - are characters you come to attain deep admiration and respect for the more you read. He takes the antagonist in book one and flips it on its head so you see things from an alternate perspective and shows how even our thoughts and beliefs about systems and technologies evolve. His references to technology are very well utilized and add many suprises to the work. If you ever wondered how life would be like with augmented reality Suarez does a good job describing it. This book has great ideas and inspires great ideas. It's defenitley on my top 5 books ever read along with the Daemon.

    Sci-Fi, Fantasy, historical fiction, mystery, thrillers with sarcasm are my favorites with some Romance thrown in for fun.

    Story
    "Humanity, with a little help"

    Freedom by Daniel Suarez narrated by Jeff Gurner is the perfect end of the the Daemon story. It has everything excitement, action, tech, gaming, detectives, mystery, greed, love, altruism, horror, honor, and humanity.

    Human, being totally stubborn & set in their ways, definitely need a push to evolve. Sadly it will probably take a sever crisis for this to occur, Daemon/Forbin Project type event (computer), a world war, being attacked by aliens, environmental disaster, or other crisis. BUT... humans can surprise you so maybe just a growing awareness of the environment and tolerance might be the key.

    Well worth the credits.

    "A little short of Daemon thrill but still great"

    It's a great sequel to Daemon which peaked the curiosity to the max. As with any great first book the credit goes to the original so Daemon is the better book by any means but its incomplete and you have to listen to Freedon to get to the end and its a fun ride too.
