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 Afa 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? Meanwhile, back on Long Island, what's left of humanity is gearing up for war with the Partials, and Marcus knows his only hope is to delay them until Kira returns. But Kira's journey will take her deep into the overgrown wasteland of postapocalyptic America, and Kira and Marcus both will discover that their greatest enemy may be one they didn't even know existed

By this time, the people who were a little less interested in the medicinal stuff should be pretty happy. There is a lot more adventuring and suspense happening, in multiple locations and not just the homeland. But for me, this just started to turn into one of those classical, predictable science fiction stories with wars and futuristic problems. It was interesting despite this anxious problem nagging at the back of my head, but sometimes people just get tired of repetition. The cover was nice, but I still liked the first one better. 4.5/5 stars.

Such a good series, I read the first one about a year ago and picked this one up at indigo last month. I only got around to reading it yesterday, But I already finished. I love where the story is going and I really want to know what is going to happen next.

A good read - a fitting sequel to the first book.
I like the new direction that the author took Samm, Kira and Heron. Although I would have liked more information on Heron..maybe this is in the next book to come?

Violence being occasionally necessary is not the same thing as violence being good.
