Publisher's Summary

The ARES Virus ran rampant throughout the world, leaving very few remaining. There are no sanctuaries in the midst of the infected, where the very air is contaminated. For the few surviving, the slightest misstep can introduce the viral agent into their midst, bringing an end to the last vestige of humankind. However, there's too much at stake to merely hover in the shadows.

Remnants of the navy survive the catastrophe, but humankind has never been able to live for long periods upon the world's oceans. Even in current times, with advances in medicine and technology, this still holds true. The survivors must find a secure location, but first they must make safe the constructions of the past. Not only do they have the agent to contend with, but there exists a ticking time bomb. Without power, the cooling ponds of the nuclear plants will fail, breathing a cloud of poison across the skies.

Emily finds herself surrounded and alone again. There were people who came to help the first time. Now she has to free herself from the city.

Sergeant Brown faces yet another predicament. Does he have the energy to escape again? Will his luck finally run out?

Fantastic!

John has done it again! Great follow on from the first book, the story really draws you in and I can’t wait to find out what happens next. Mark would have to be one of my favourite narrators although wish he had used more specific voices for the characters as he has done in the past, but still great narration. This is a must read series!

It was ok

The book was good not as exciting as the first but still good. The characters are surely developing good in this book. I hope there is a book 3 coming up.

Even better than the first.

The narrator is a bit over dramatic but does an okay job. A little disappointed that more time was spent on the fleet instead of the main characters but does set the stage for more books. Hopefully the third one will have more of the survingnthe end of the world.

another hit from the mind of John Obrien

another great story my friends. something a little closer to home. very plausible that the government does something stupid and tries to do it again with different results. they are the most evil idiots going, oh wait I'm mixing fantasy with reality. or are we?????????
a good follow up Mr. O'brien! I'm waiting for the final book with baited breath.

It only takes ONE

"It only takes one."


I thought the first book was VERY good This one is even better.
I have been a fan of John's from book one and let me tell you he
never let's the reader down.

IMHO all of his books are worth listening to..

Great book

I'm a big fan of John O'Brien's A New World series. For fans of that series I'd say this is similar but has a stronger emphasis on the military side of things. I enjoyed the story. It had great characters and an interesting arc. I recommend.
