Publisher's Summary

What if your fate was put in the wrong hands? What if taking it back was your only option?

The Second Alliance presses on.

The town of River's Edge is under their control. In two years since the virus, Xavier finds himself alone. His sister is dead. His mother is missing. His father is out searching for her.

He thought it couldn't get any worse, but the Second Alliance proves him wrong - cracks in their facade reveal the grim truth of their presence.

While the other survivors submit to this harsh new reality, Xavier refuses to bend. Someone must ignite the revolution before the Second Alliance swallows the town whole. Alone, Xavier doesn't stand a chance. But if defeat promises death, will anyone follow him into the darkness?

The world of Almawt seemed so simple before, but the second installment in the series will change your perspective on everything.

This dystopian, post-apocalyptic thriller is the second book in Robert Wilson's Days Since... Almawt Virus series. Look for the third installment of the series: Days Since... Jenny: Day 986

OMG such an ending.....

I will not list any spoilers but WOW.

I am REALLY beginning to love this series so much so that I am going to read the next book instead of having it read to me.

I will miss Matthew Crow’s realistic and fabulous narration but he has more books out there.

Xavier

I hope this series has a fantastic ending. It is a slow build to what could be a great tale. This book was much better than the 1st. I enjoyed it.

A good bridge to the third book

Definitely lacking some of the action from the first book, but the story is worth a listen. This book really opened up the series and where I think it is heading. The Second Alliance really felt like the good guys in the first one, but now... I'm not so sure. Pretty cool how the perspective changes to Xavier and with it, my perspective on what the SA is trying to do. So kudos, on that.

I felt the narration was stronger in this one than the first. The voices were great and Mr. Crow did a great job with the story overall.

I'm excited for the third book. I've only listened to the first two, but might have to pick the third on up on Kindle. Very interested in seeing what happens to Jenny.

3.75★s It’s very important to read Book 3!!!

*Sigh* Being this is a "bridge" series I feel it need to give some leeway in my frustration. I'm truly not certain at this point where the series is going. I think we're getting disjointed stories. There is no strong connection between Thomas & Xavier really.

For all intents and purposes he has been totally abandoned and left to fly on the memories of his dad's shirt tails.

I'm hoping the next book brings the first two books together! I feel like the story after plooding through 4½ hours just abruptly ended. And it was NOT a good ending. With no cliff hanger either.

The narrator was okay but he didn't feel invested in the story...just my opinion.

My star ratings include these 5 elements:
.5★ story line
.5★ engaging characters
1★ use of world building/descriptions
.75★ the ending
1★ narration or editing

*→Update after reading book 3: you HAVE to read all of the book for the ending here to make sense!!

Slow build

A little slow to get going and an unexpected ending. it felt a little disjointed from the first book but maybe the storyline will come together in the third installment.

Xavier: Day 853

The second instalment of the Ahmet series, the struggles continue, Xavier is left in Grant's care when his father leaves to go and find his mother, his life is maintaining the school, a new treaty for protection welcomes the Second Alliance to their community. My favourite part is when Xavier realises things are not as they seem, and starts to mature as he realises the conspiracy surrounding them. I'm looking forward the book 3 to discover whats next.

A solid story

A good continuation of the story. Still think the audio performance needs work but credit to the author on the writing. This is shaping up to be a great series with a good bit of world building narrative underlying an intriguing storyline. Well worth getting in to.

Good listen

This book was an enjoyable apocalyptic tale. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first book, but it's still worth a listen if you enjoy dystopian society type books. The narration was good.
