Overview

In his phenomenal debut, Daemon, Daniel Suarez introduced a terrifying vision of an unstoppable computer program unleashed on our world by a hi-tech wunderkind. But now, our world is Daemon's world—unless someone stops the program once and for all...

The Daemon is in absolute control, using an expanded network of shadowy operatives to tear apart civilization and built it anew. Even as civil war breaks out in thr American Midwest in a wave of nightmarish violence, former detective Pete Sebeck—the Daemon's most powerful, though reluctant, operative—must lead a small band of enlightened humans in a movement designed to protect the new world order.

But the private armies of global business are preparing to crush the Daemon once and for all. In a world of shattered loyalties, collapsing societies, and seemingly endless betrayal, the only thing left worth fighting for may be nothing less than the freedom of all humankind.

Also look for CHANGE AGENT, coming April 2017 from Daniel Suarez.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Freedom™ surpasses its smart, exciting predecessor. This concluding volume crackles with electrifying action scenes and bristles with intriguing ideas about a frightening, near-future world. The two books combined form the cyberthriller against which all others will be measured.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Suarez continues his popular technothriller, and Daemon fans will be well be pleased with the exciting conclusion.”—Booklist

“An engrossing, fast-paced tale of speculative fiction.”—SF Site

I just finished reading this book. Although not as quite as exciting as its predecessor: Daemon, it holds your attention until the conclusion. I would recommend this book to be read after Daemon.

I posted a review of the first book, Daemon. Should add that both books are hard to put down. Freedom delivers some satisfactory answers to the serious issues Suarez raises. This has a fair amount of intellectual subtext but Suarez delivers in terms of blood, gore, and action. I am not sure he has correctly identified the true villains but points to multi-national corporations and does accurately portray the capture of our government's regulatory and legislative apparatus. If you liked this you might want to explore Robert Ferrigno's trilogy, Shadow of the Assasin, Prayers for the Assassin and whatever the third one is titled.

A great sequel to Daemon, the first from this author. Not as good as Daemon, but very close. If you haven't read that, then I do not recommend reading this book first. Daemon should absolutely be read first so that you can thoroughly enjoy this one. If you like technology, video games, sci-fi, super cool characters, crazy ideas, and fun, then read both of these books. Read both of these books in a span of about 5 days. Do not start before bed if you are looking for sleep. I am really excited about this author and only wish there was more out there by him.

Freedom had me breathless and late for work on more than one day. The storyline scares this IT/Webmaster with it's potential realism and I found myself needing to see what happened in the next chapter. This is pure escapism with a strong touch of what if?

Most amazing book ive ever read

Excellent book that was hard to put down, though you have to read Daemon first so you know what is going on in Freedom. I agree with some reviewers that there are more slow spots in Freedom than in Daemon, you just have to power through them. Very highly recommended. Techno-thriller that answers the questions left open at the end of Daemon (especially concerning "The Major"). Looking forward to reading new books by this author.

Not the best prose in the world (John Steinbeck) but a very good story.

I recently read Daemon and was blown away. I was very excited that it's sequel was coming out. I have to say I was disappointed. There is not as much action and I feel that the story gets blogged down at points. He story of the Daemon does get wrapped up pretty much but I think we could get another story. I word of warning-You must read Daemon before reading Freedom. If you do not you will be completely lost.

The headline says it all. Great science fiction for technology oriented readers. Deamon is the first in the series and is a must read.
