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.

    "Another amazing book from Suarez"

    This sequel shines; it is as technologically plausible as the first book was and it was absolutely thrilling. The ending was fantastic and you are left with a proper sense of justice at the finish.
    This book brings the story started in Daemon to a close but, somehow I still want to hear more about the daemon darknet.

    "I loved it"

    I am a fan of both books and found myself not wanting this one to end. I loved the writing, the story, and the tech toys described. The only thing that would make this better is if it came with complimentary HUD glasses.

    "Phenomenal"

    This book is phenomenal! Be sure to listen to "Daemon" first (which is also excellent) so you've got your bearings. Suarez does an amazing job of spinning real world politics in with his world of realistic fictional (for now?) technology. This book made it hard to take off my headphones. My dog certainly enjoyed his extra long walks while I was listening to it.

    "Great follow up to Daemon"

    I loved the first book, Daemon and was anxious to read the second book Freedom (TM). The sequel more than lives up to the promise of the first book. I actually read the paperback version of Daemon, but decided to try the Audible version when I couldn't find Freedom in stores. I actually like the Audible version better. Narration and production are great.

    "Perfectly crafted"

    Firstly, absolutely do not get this book unless you've gone through Daemon. It would be pointless.

    I felt that the first half was weaker than I wanted it to be, but Suarez has this unbelievable talent for pounding the story into unexpected directions. This isn't typical Hollywood story writing. I was ready to say that Daemon was the better book, back when I was only part way into Freedom, but especially after the last few hours of Freedom, I must say that I can't decide which one is 'better'. They cover different themes, yet they both held my attention far better than the last few books I've read.

    I found myself at several points stopping the book and just taking in the changes to the story. Suarez nimbly handles his literature and knows exactly when things need radical changes to avoid getting stale and predictable. And Sobol's closing conversation with Sebeck isn't a shocking twist all by itself, but it really opens up your mind to the scale of the plans that Sobol made.

    The glue in this story is the main character. Without him, this story would be told from all the wrong directions, and it would have been awful and uninteresting. His character is perfectly representative of the transformation Suarez wants to put you through.

    In short, this is the best pair of books that I've read in a long time. I'll be watching for more from Suarez. Reading was becoming a non-priority for me, but he's put the life back into the adventure for me. Now if only the Daemon were real...

    "Jaw-dropping"

    Freedom TM and its prequel, Daemon, are game changers for sci fi. They will have the same impact on the genre that Bill Gibson's Neuromancer did 25 years ago. A stunning achievement.

    "Liked it but it took a while"

    This book is sooooo technical, that it took a while for me to begin to grasp it. I started to give up on it in the middle and almost quit. Toward the very end it all came together.
    There are many things happening at multiple levels. Religion, Politics,War, Human interaction comparisons to present and future and of course tech....It is one of those books that you will think about long after you are done.
