This is the second book in the Sky series by William Amerman. You can see my review for the first book on the "book reviews" tab, as well. It delivered on stepping up an already solid story.
We get some new characters, my favorite of which being Detritus himself, and the continuation of characters from the first book. Nick's development in this bizarre, monster-filled, mechanical death-scape is really interesting in contrast to when he is introduced in the first book. It's a very adult story, and I do need to advise you that the content is not for the conservative reader.
Amerman brings us a cerebral read that demands all of your attention to the story and the Machine. I found this installment to be fascinating. I enjoyed that there was more depth to it than similar-genre books.
As a longtime lover of high-adrenaline fiction, I knew this was a book for me. I think many of you would also enjoy it.
Amerman creates a distinct universe of ground level advancements, custom guns, and a "Malady Unknown." At every turn, there are risks to the characters. It really kept me glued to the page. Sky1: Foundation is set in a post-apocalyptic era, where the only way to survive a quarantine is to move to a higher ground level. Those higher levels are guarded, however, and there is great danger with attempting to immigrate.
Each character is very complex and therefore easy to imagine and relate to. As they are written, they become real. The first page sets the perfect tone for a passageway into the universe you will enter when reading. It's dark, but only in the most fascinating and truth-apocalyptic sense.
The warehouse locations and immigration fences can be somewhat confusing to keep track of and my only wish for the book is that it would have a map included in the book to chart the immigration plans.
I would say more, but I hope you download a copy for yourself. It doesn't disappoint.
