Mobi/Sci-Fi: This is the second book of the trilogy. While I really like the series, I feel that you need to read the first book to understand what is happening in this book. At the end, there was a lot of political maneuvering going on, that I honestly didn't understand the motivation. That said, it was a good second book to the series.

This story starts out with some horrifying actions taken by people trying to survive on mountain peaks after a medical nanotechnology runs amok killing every warm blooded animal below 10,000 feet. It is a gripping story that immediately engages you and goes from one horror to another and the remaining humans try to find ways to survive and to eradicate the nano bug that has decimated most life on earth. A totally believable story with realistic characters and challenges. An excellent read and a story that stays with you long after the book is done.

If you love disaster and fallout type books this one is great for both men and women. I was caught up in it from page one.

Just over a year has past since the catastrophe began with a rather rapid wipeout of 5,000,000,000 souls in a blink. The nano-plague was released into the human population bring the world to the edge of extinction.. To survive this organic eating plague one must reside above the elevation of 10,000 feet as the machines freeze at that altitude. ---- In the Colorado Rocky Mountains the United States government plots to take over the world by using the vaccine developed by Ruth Goldman as a tool to choose who lives. The scientist and her friend Cam just want to inoculate everyone. Meanwhile the feds arrange for select Russians to fly to the States, but are betrayed when the plane explodes a nuclear bomb into the area. The Russian both combat and civilian and the Chinese are coming in full fighter force as they want a less ravaged place to live. Ruth believes she can bring the war to a halt and prevent any more fighting if he idea and new creation works ---- The sequel to the exciting PLAGUE YEAR, PLAGUE WAR is an exhilarating high octane science fiction thrillers that hooks the audience from the opening sequence and never let¿s go until the climax. While the story line focuses on non-stop action, the desolate frozen backdrop is in some ways the prime character as even in near extinction some in power will make a grab for more control while others prefer to simply save the world. Whereas Jeff Carlson cautions his audience to keep a close eye on the government-science-technological complex, fans, especially those who read the first book, will enjoy this electrifying over the Rockies dark futuristic tale ---- Harriet Klausner
