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.

Good. Like, too good.

Like, made me question the fabric of real life society, good. The conspiracy theories presented are frighteningly plausible and even the detailed technology that Suarez invents seem real. My only negative comment is there's a tad too much violence at times, but I guess that's what happens with mass destruction of the New World Order.

Very entertaining book

Very interesting book about the futuristic overly controlling society. The story itself was very captivating, and the reading was even better. Different characters have different speech patterns which made it much easier to keep track.

Awesome story. Completely worth it.

Great story line, with suspense and twists. This should really be a movie. Does not drag on like most sequel books.

The technology drew me into this book, but the characters were incredible! Loki, the Major, John were great. My favorite has got to be Roy and the burning man! Very inspiring set of events at the end.

Better than the first book.

I have to say I enjoyed book 2 much more. I'm glad I saw it through. characters grow and we Lear more about them, and loose ends get tied up nicely. most loose ends anyway. still, a satisfactory book.

A very weak follow up the series opener Daemon

This book has none of the novelty, depth, insightfulness, or charm of the original. Character development collapsed and dialog was completely flat. There is nothing new to learn so I'd recommend skipping his one altogether

IMHO Jeff Gurner really makes this book. Kill Decision and influx are great as well
