Overview

T2: Rising Storm by S. M. Stirling

Following the critically praised T2: Infiltrator, T2: Rising Storm continues the bestselling Terminator adventures, reaching new heights of action, drama, and suspense.

Hunted for years, Sarah and John Connor have waged a grave battle to save humanity from destruction. They and they alone can keep the apocalyptic Judgment Day—the day when sentient machines move to destroy their human creators—from occurring. Aided by Dieter von Rossbach, an ex-counterterrorism operative who will eventually be used as the physical model for the T-101 Terminator units, the Connors have sabotaged the Cyberdyne research facility and stopped a deadly I-950 Infiltrator unit from completing her mission.

But the war is far from over, and now the heroes have been separated.

Severely injured—both mentally and physically—and recuperating under military surveillance, Sarah Connor must face her deepest fears...alone. Meanwhile, von Rossbach, hunted by both the CIA and his former allies, begins a delicate mission to recruit supporters and arms support for the coming battle.

Aided by a beautiful and brilliant MIT student, John Connor starts a desperate campaign across the United States and Central America to prepare an unsuspecting human race for the dark times ahead. For the original I-950 Infiltrator unit left a contingency plan—and, unbeknownst to our heroes, more Infiltrators have initiated their own clandestine operations, including the hunt to terminate the Connors. And this time, despite all their efforts, the brave heroes may not be able to stop the future war between human and machine.

Cyberdyne Corporation is not the only one with plans for the computer network, and hidden far away in a top secret military base, a fledgling Skynet takes its first steps toward sentience...and toward the rise of the machines and the termination of all human life.

Twice Sarah Connor and her son John have been able to prevent Judgment Day, the time when Skynet becomes sentient and declares war on its creators the human race. After the last attack on Cyberdyne, the company that was started to create the Skynet program, the American government took the project away from the independent contractor and placed it in the hands of scientists hidden away in a top secret installation in Antarctica.

One of the scientists on the base is an Infiltrator, an organic computer in human form that wants to make sure that Skynet will come into existence. John and Sarah Connor and their ally and good friend, ex-spook Dieter Von Rossbach have put into place a group of people who will be ready to fight when Judgment day arrives and the machines try to annihilate humanity. When the Connors and Dieter learn about the base in Antarctica, they prepare themselves to once more go up against an enemy determined to destroy them.

T2: RISING STORM stays true to the story line developed in the Terminator movies and takes the plot one step closer to the day the Skynet computer becomes sentient. Although this is an exciting action-adventure thriller, it is also human relationship drama. The mother-son bond between Sarah and John is beautiful to witness and the audience truly feels sorry for the lives they must lead if they want to prevent the extinction of mankind.

I'm a big fan of the Terminator series. This book tied well into the movie series. Well writen, imaginative and some surprises. There are many action sequences that rival the movie.

This truly fleshes out the story line of the Terminator universe. A great read and hard to put down, if you are even remotely interested in the Terminator story, then check out this book!

I FOUND THIS BOOK REALLY TIES THE BOOK SERIES TOGETHER AND BRINGS TOGETHER THE REASON THE CONNORS HAVE TO DO WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO. ANYONE READING THIS WILL FIND IT HARD TO PUT DOWN. THE MIND CAN TAKE YOU PLACES AND THIS BOOK CAN THINK IT IS POSSABLE FOR REALITY TO ENTWINE WITH THE MIND TO CREATE THE FUTURE.
