Summary: In Alive, Scott Sigler introduced readers to an unforgettable young heroine and a mysterious new world reminiscent of those of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Red Rising. Now he expands his singular vision in the next thrilling novel of this powerful sci-fi adventure series.
“If it’s war they want, they messed with the wrong girl.”
M. Savage—or Em, as she is called—has made a bewildering and ominous discovery. She and the other young people she was chosen to lead awoke in strange coffins with no memory of their names or their pasts. They faced an empty, unknown place of twisting tunnels and human bones. With only one another to depend on, they searched for answers and found the truth about their terrifying fate. Confronted by a monstrous enemy, they vowed never to surrender—and, by any means, to survive.
The planet Omeyocan may be the sanctuary Em and her comrades seek. But the planet for which they were created turns out not to be a pristine, virgin world. Vestiges of a lost civilization testify to a horrifying past that may yet repeat itself. And when a new enemy creeps from the jungle shadows, Em and her young refugees learn there’s nowhere left to run. They face a simple choice: fight or die.
In the midst of this desperate struggle, their unity is compromised from within—and a dangerous zealot devoted to a bloodthirsty god moves to usurp Em’s command, threatening to lead them all down a path to violent doom.
Em and the rest of the Birthday Children escaped their captors on the Xolotl and arrived safely on the planet Omeyocan. Now the next chapter of survival begins. Food supplies are limited, danger lurks in every shadow, and a struggle for power threatens to compromise the safety of everyone. Will the group put aside their differences and focus on the real danger before more lives are lost?
Alright is simply amazing. The author does an incredible job of creating an utterly captivating sequel in the Generations Trilogy. Em's character undergoes a great deal of change and despite all the set backs she continues to grow in her role as leader. Much is learned about the history of the Birthday Children and readers will feel enlightened even though more questions are raised.
I really can't say enough good things about this book. The author's writing style is appealing and the plot mesmerizing. I highly recommend this series.
I apologize for the brief summary, but a more detailed description would risk spoiling the excitement for readers.
