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.

The conclusion to Daemon

If you were unsatisfied with the first book, this will put your mind at ease. A nice conclusion, these two books would make an excellent tv series.

The Atlas Shrugged of the Digital age

This was a fun and exciting book. That provided solid entertainment while at the same time like Atlas Shrugged delves into "the role of man's mind in existence." Whether you see the same comparison - is up to you. This is a series I would read twice.

Amazing again.

Read this if you like world class techno thrillers!

I've never been sadder ending this book. Although I felt.the same fleeting sadness with daemon, but i quickly vanquished that feeling by reading this.
