M. Savage - or Em, as she is called - has made a bewildering and ominous discovery. She and the other young people she was chosen to lead awoke in strange coffins with no memory of their names or their pasts. They faced an empty, unknown place of twisting tunnels and human bones. With only one another to depend on, they searched for answers and found the truth about their terrifying fate. Confronted by a monstrous enemy, they vowed never to surrender - and, by any means, to survive.
The planet Omeyocan may be the sanctuary Em and her comrades seek. But the planet for which they were created turns out not to be a pristine, virgin world. Vestiges of a lost civilization testify to a horrifying past that may yet repeat itself. And when a new enemy creeps from the jungle shadows, Em and her young refugees learn there's nowhere left to run. They face a simple choice: fight or die.
In the midst of this desperate struggle, their unity is compromised from within - and a dangerous zealot devoted to a bloodthirsty god moves to usurp Em's command, threatening to lead them all down a path to violent doom.

As a fan of Scott Sigler's work, I had to check out the Generations trilogy. Having just read "Alive," I was itching to listen to book 2. I've had my headphones in my ears almost nonstop over the last 24 hours, unable to stop listening. Emma Galvin's voice perfectly personifies how one would imagine a character like Em (M) would sound; she also reflects the emotions that Em would feel as the story progresses. Can't wait for the final book!
Man! So outstanding! Just like Scott Sigler promised, the 2nd part of this trilogy is more engaging than the first. Because I am very familiar with all of his books, I am able to make many connections between all. I am SO jonesing for the next part!
I love almost anything post-apocalyptic, zombie, scifi, ect. Always looking for some new earhole entertainment!
As always, my FAVORITE author, Scott Sigler has done it again! Another great book! Emma Galvin does am amazing job telling the story of Em and her friends. They've finally made it to the planet where they face new dangers. Can't wait for book 3!
A good rollercoaster of a story. Just when I think I know where its going, Scott smacks me in the face and says "you don't know anything sucka" and shows us how good of a writer he is.
Go get Alive and start this rollercoaster ride yourself.
A beautifully executed departure from Sigler's usual style of storytelling, this series has had me guessing (mostly incorrectly) the entire time. I can hardly wait for the next installment!
I'm continuing to really enjoy the series. There's always a surprise it seems, and that keeps me guessing
Alight was my first exposure to an audio book - but in the form of a weekly podcast. I LOVED the audio format. I have now "re-read" the first book "Alive" in audio format and it is just delightful. This series is GREAT and now with Audible, it is even BETTER!!!
Scott Sigler has delivered another great Story. lot's of realistic twists and turns in a fantasy location and situation. The people are still people with all their hopes and flaws and their discovery and reaction makes the story My only issue is the voice of the narrator, while it fits the protagonist well, it is the voice of a teen-ager which can get a little annoying at times. but that's just me.
Great story line with a great group of characters, if you liked book one, you will not be disappointed with book two. I listened to book one for free on the podcast and while I tried to do the same with this book, I got too invested in the story to only hear it once a week. After two podcasts, I ended up using my credit to buy the audiobook version and couldn't be happier. Emma Galvin is a fantastic reader and a great fit for the story's main character.
Sure if I had the time i would have loved to listen to this in one shot.
I really hope Emma Galvin is able to read book three, it would feel like a different story without her reading.
"A great science fiction master piece"
Scott Sigler is a mastermind and his book only demonstrates it even better. the creatures, the social structures, the new worlds and technologies. So fantastic, yet so believable and domeatic. Completely believable. Though I have to say, I would be punching double circles left and right into their little asshat mouths.
Fantastic story, Sigler is an amazing story teller. Galvin is Em personified and IS the character. Highly recommend it.
"Gods Damn You Sigler"
have followed scott's podcast for the last two years and the generations triology is his stand works. he has cranked the tension upto 11 this time and after getting half way through the weekly podcasts, I couldn't wait another week to find out whats going to happen so bought the Audio book.
Galven's performance is perfect and you trully believe that she is the reluctant leader Em. I tried to think who else could narrate and embody the characters as she does, it's proven to be a difficult and very short list.
At 35 I really shouldn't enjoy teenage dystopia fiction this much but I have to admit I've become a 'Junky' for this series.
Only complaint is that i have to wait another 9 months to the final installment.
Gods Damn You Sigler.
