Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good read I actually really enjoyed this one! I personally think it was better than the first one. Lots of action and mystery. Some strange time transitions here and there, but it wasn't something that bothered me too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Dysopian Thriller I throughly enjoyed the second book in Dan Well's trilogy set against a background of desperation and fear caused by a Partial War that's devastated humankind and a virus that is whittling away at the remnant that's left. Into this mix add a new species of super soldier, the Partials, whose numbers are being reduced because of a genetic abnormality that destroys any over the age of 20. In this book Kira finds Afa, a computer technologist formerly with ParaGen the company that created the biogenetic race of soldiers. Together with Partial soldiers, Samm and Heron, they set out to discover a cure which they hope will save both races. It's an action-packed, thrill ride that leads Kira, Samm and their company across the wasteland of the Midwest and into the horror and evil of an invented paradise where the answers they want will lead to even more questions. I like Kira, a heroine with high ideals who not only wants to save her world but is seeking answers to her very existence, and her friend Samm, who seems more human than Partial and who desperately wants to control his own destiny. It's a story of struggle, of small victories and with every new challenge the characters face, a new dimension is added to their personalities. I have become a fan of Dan Well's writing style and can't wait to read his next book. I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves an action-packed thriller with a twist at the end.

From the Publisher

Author Dan Wells is back with the sequel to the sci-fi blockbuster Partials, which Pittacus Lore called a "thrilling sci-fi adrenaline rush, with one of the most compelling and frightening visions of Earth's future I've seen yet."

After discovering the cure for RM, Kira Walker sets off on a terrifying journey into the ruins of postapocalyptic America and the darkest desires of her heart in order to uncover the means—and a reason—for humanity's survival.

Dan Wells extends his richly imagined, gritty world and introduces new memorable characters in this second installment in the Partials Sequence.

From the Jacket

Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues to who she is. That the Partials themselves hold the cure for RM in their blood cannot be a coincidence—it must be part of a larger plan, a plan that involves Kira, a plan that could save both races. Her companions are Ava Demoux, an unhinged drifter and former employee of ParaGen, and Samm and Heron, the Partials who betrayed her and saved her life, the only ones who know her secret. But can she trust them?

The second installment in the pulse-pounding Partials saga is the story of the eleventh hour of humanity's time on Earth, a journey deep into places unknown to discover the means—and even more important, a reason—for our survival.
