It’s finally here. The long-awaited sequel to the bestselling Unwind, which Publishers Weekly called a “gripping, brilliantly imagined futuristic thriller.”
Thanks to Connor, Lev, and Risa—and their high-profile revolt at Happy Jack Harvest Camp—people can no longer turn a blind eye to unwinding. Ridding society of troublesome teens while simultaneously providing much-needed tissues for transplant might be convenient, but its morality has finally been brought into question. However, unwinding has become big business, and there are powerful political and corporate interests that want to see it not only continue, but also expand to the unwinding of prisoners and the impoverished.
Cam is a product of unwinding; made entirely out of the parts of other unwinds, he is a teen who does not technically exist. A futuristic Frankenstein, Cam struggles with a search for identity and meaning and wonders if a rewound being can have a soul. And when the actions of a sadistic bounty hunter cause Cam’s fate to become inextricably bound with the fates of Connor, Risa, and Lev, he’ll have to question humanity itself.
Rife with action and suspense, this riveting companion to the perennially popular Unwind challenges assumptions about where life begins and ends—and what it means to live.

I love the way the author is able to convey such a creepy idea, in a way that makes it so interesting to read.
Yes. If I didn't have a life, I never would have put it down.
The ending is such a cliff hanger...Is it weird that I hope Risa and Cam wind (no pun intended) up together?
The reader was expressive and held my interest. I have enjoyed his work in other books too.
Very good listen but not sure if it truly compares to Unwind but I must say Neal is an amazing author! Keep em' coming Neal...
Absolutely, it's an amazing story that will make you think, that will touch you deeply and besides all that it's just a darn good story with marvelous characters.
I don't know if I can pick just one thing, the whole story was amazing from start to finish, I desperately didn't want it to end. This sounds silly, but what I liked best was that it was a continuation from the first one, I wanted more of the story and this was it. I also loved the message of redemption.
Yes I have, this one is at least as good, maybe even better. Regardless, it was AWEsome.
When I realized something about one of the characters ... before the story explained it. I was shocked, intrigued, horrified, amazed ... all that once.
Read UnWind first, and then read this one. It's an order! You won't regret it, I promise.
What an amazing if disturbing concept.
An extremely well performed production, I am finding that I just want to keep listening !!
I Couldn't stop listening! I love the character development and how the story line circles back around to incorporate a previously introduced characters.
What strong vocabulary that made the book fantastic. Such an interesting story plot that left you on the edge of your seat wanting to read more! Now I'm looking toward to reading Unsouled.
didn't like the character Starky not sure why he had to be in the book but enjoyed reading it nonetheless. would recommend and will try to finish the series.
This series is becoming a favourite and the narration by Luke Daniels just adds to the amazement of it. A must read for dystopian genre fans.
I loved seeing what was going to happen to Conner, Lev, and Risa. After finishing the first book I had to wait for a book credit to get this second installment of this series. It was completely worth it.
I like Luke Daniels. He is a good narrator. He portrays the material in a way that seems as though he is interested. There is nothing worse than a narrator who is bored with the book. He has appropriate reactions that allow the listener to hear the voices, punctuation, emotion, and spirit of the story.
This book is part young adult, part thriller, part dystology, part romance, part drama, with a bit of comedy thrown in for good measure. I would recommend this book to anyone who has enjoyed, "Hunger Games," "Rogue," "Angelfall," or "Divergent."
