My reaction to this continuation was no less enthusiastic than to the first. Dan Humphreys has hit another one out of the park. The story picks up in the immediate aftermath of the events from the first book, approximately 8 years after what is referred to a Z-Day. But despite this story growing out of those past events, there's no tedious rehash of the last book, only appropriate references as the characters process their past experiences during the current tale. Humphreys also creates a parallel story, introducing a new character and his experiences shortly after Z-Day. Ultimately the two time lines collide in a very satisfying manner. But to say more would spoil it.
Unlike some authors in this genre (even the good ones) Humphreys shifts the focus of this book to supporting characters from the first book, and introduces a manageable set of new ones. Best to not get attached to anyone, though, as the author is ruthless about the constant danger they all face.
He also skillfully drops a few more hints and comments about the origins of the world ending plague of "Zulus" as they are referred to. Again, read it for yourself and find out--no spoilers.
Just buy this book, and the first one, of course, if you haven't already. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
