    This sequel is as good as, or perhaps even better than, the first novel in the series. It takes the surviving characters in the first novel and continues their story into a terrible, desperate, future.
    I read the review by occasional blonde and had to laugh because even a tiny modicum of research would have shown that the theories this authors characters refer to all actually exist including the crustal shift theory by Hapgood whose books forward was indeed written by Albert Einstein.
    The destruction described is also consistent with the damages to be expected with a kinetic energy weapon that is the equal of a 40 megaton hydrogen bomb. I can understand why the author said he had to take a break from writing this excellent book because picturing the destruction was giving him nightmares.
    It's a great read and a brutal story. Even the religious overtones are to be expected if something of the magnitude covered in this series has happened. After all every survivor has lost family or friends to the war and its aftermath and faith helps to preserve sanity. Even if the times themselves are insane.
    I can't wait for the next volume in this series.

    This sequel wasn't bad but it drifted off to the absurd with claims of 5 collapses of civilization and gold tablets. It also got into christian mysticism. The recovery build out and human situations are interesting and probably as good as projections as any others. Good science fiction extrapolates while good science fantasy imagines. This book sort of hallucinates. The plot is loosely based on Larry Niven's Lucifer's Hammer. However the mass and kinetic energy of the toothpicks described in the book while adequate for bunker busting are nowhere nearly enough massive for the damage the author likes to describe.
