After the first book, where I was stunned by the concept and enthralled by the spiritual content, this book is back to reality. It reads more like a dystopian survivalist story. But it is still very good work, and develops the characters much further.
This puts all the main characters against real trial
They all grow because of it. It’s not nearly as exciting as book #1. But it’s still very good.
Yes, this cover is worse than the one for book #1.
