The book and my review is a continuation of the first book, Reality Bites and wouldn't be much of a read alone. The spaghetti from the tail end of Bites is unwound into three separate sequels of which this is first. Much larger print and smaller books means the meals are getting down-sized. Subject matter and all is about the same with a little more normalcy mixed in. A return to a semblance of civility with clustering nasties being brought to their day of reckoning.
Alice and some of her friends do make a cameo appearance apparently never having reached Kansas but instead get way-laid, as it were, into service to the dark forces, one hour at a time. One presumes it is Alice because she thinks life is good and she likes it. Inspite of which, the good guys come along and rescue her anyway, because, after all that is what good guys do. On another front the Eco-Nazis get deluged but float off into the sunset destined to no doubt swashbuckle ashore, Viking-like, to pillage other unsuspecting citizenry. For after all that is what bad guys do, and we do need grist for further sequels. At the homefront with no TV for entertainment, pregnancy blossoms and agrarian collaborative recovery commences.
This is a pleasant adventure yarn of recovery, with enough substance to keep it worth reading. It's engaging enough to read B & C as they are churned out.
