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.

    "Really enjoyed it"

    Found it to be a really well thought out story and even thought provoking at certain points.

    Would highly recommend it to anyone who even remotely enjoys the genre

    Story
    "FANTASTIC!"
    Where does Freedom (TM) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best fictional pieces that I have ever listened to. Very compelling from start to finish. I was actually hoping for a third book so that my questions about the future in this near-believable story would be answered.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great character development along with many character switches within the story really make this book dynamic.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with Loki or the Major were very cool. They are such sinister characters in their own way, you love to hate them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There was one scene that made my insides turn because the description was so vividly gory. I literally turned green for a minute.


    Any additional comments?

    I accidentally started with this book as my iPod has them arranged in alphabetical order. So I am now listening to the first book, Daemon, which is playing out quite like a Tarantino movie. This is turning into a very cool experience as I am now getting the full insight into the characters and story as they were developed by the author.

    Story
    "Standard sci-fi that is still enjoyable"
    What made the experience of listening to Freedom (TM) the most enjoyable?

    The voice acting made what could have been one-dimensional characters come to life.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The exploration of the effects of a true communal state in our modern technological world was intriguing. I am not sure that I agree with the authors inherent belief in the goodness of people to work together, but as an intellectual exercise it was entertaining.


    What about Jeff Gurner’s performance did you like?

    Jeff Gurners ability to take standard trope characters and add depth to them was excellent and saved what could have been nothing more than a sci-fi fluff book.

    Story
    "Shocking, the sequel is even better"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, in fact, don't plan to read this without reading Daemon and don't plan to read it without reading the next. The story is wonderful and I couldn't put it down. Who hopes for a longer commute, so you can listen to more.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Freedom (TM)?

    (Spoiler alert) As the town is saved by ROy


    What does Jeff Gurner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jeff's reading is key part of the experience. He pulls the reader in and transports you into the story, you don't want to stop.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Few books lead you to keep thinking when will the Major get what's coming and you will at the end...

    I love to read and since 2011 I have been mostly listening to audiobooks because oftentimes there is nothing like a good narrator.

    Story
    "An extraordinary sequel to an extraordinary book."

    30 seconds after finishing Daemon, the 1st book in this series, I started up this sequel. The first book was that good and this sequel did not disappoint.

    I honestly don't think anyone will have to read this review because if they read the 1st book, Daemon, they will get this book. You just can't ignore it after finishing Daemon. The author delivered and big. Both of these books are hard to put down. The one bad thing was that I finished them both in less than 3 days.

    I hope Mr Suarez continues this series. The thrilling endings in this book brought very good resolution to many things but left it open ended enough to allow more books.

    Lastly, I will add that the author didn't just rehash what was in the 1st book. Sure, there were continuations in the main theme but Mr Suarez added new twists and angles to this story that made the story much better.

    In all honestly, I can't think of a single thing I'd change in these two books.

    Story
    "If you've read Daemon - you need to read FreedomTM"

    Fans of Daemon are sure to love Freedom TM. Daemon left me wanting more - knowing there was more to that story, that there had to be more to that story. Freedom TM doesn't disappoint - the technological advances that are mentioned are often adaptations or just incredibly expensive versions of existing technology. An excellent read - if you liked Daemon - you must read Freedom TM!

    "Damn Good!!!!"

    I cant say this story would be for everyone as the plot of the story ties in a lot of technology which some people may not enjoy but even for people not fully caught up in technology would still be able to follow the story.

    For anyone that has a tickle for technology this is a must read. The book is like roller coaster taking you up and down and all over never to be left bored. I now consider this one of my top 5 books and will listen again. Just wish it was a trilogy!

    "Fantastic finish to a great story!"

    Daemon was great sci-fi thriller and Freedom continues right where it left off. Really these two books are one long novel split in two. That said, this book is a bit more philosophical than Daemon. I won't spoil anything but the story does end and the twists are fantastic.

    "Completes the story"

    AWESOME. I loved this book. No one should listen to this book though without first listening to Daemon. There is a lot of action and the story continues to move in an unpredictable direction.
    I stated in my review of Daemon that all the technology in the book was "technically" possible in today's world. Freedom-tm however stretched those boundaries a bit far. Most of the tech is theoretically possible, but it was much harder to believe. That said, I do not hold that against the story at all. It is super fun to escape into a realm that however surreal holds some sort of ground in the science of today.
    While I am moving on to a different genre next, I have already spent a credit on Suarez's next book Kill Decision. I am very excited about Daniel Suarez and he has already moved onto the list of authors of whom i want to experience all their works!
    I was a little nervous at first that this would become one of those series in which you have to get the next book to truly complete the story, but that wasnt the case. While Daemon was a little cliff-hangery, this book had an actual conclusion that gave me that ever elusive satisfied feeling.
    A last note on the narrator. I was at first thrown off by the narrator. I thought some of his voices were a little silly. However, over time I appreciated the distinctiveness of the characters. After i got used to them, they really helped me sink into the story!

    "Good follow up to the first book"

    This book was probably better that the first one. The plot has changed from an evil mad man releasing a malevolent computer virus on the world to it turns out maybe he didn't have evil intent after all. Worth a listen
