Two years after a nuclear war decimates America, survivors attempt to piece together life-saving everyday technologies before a military draft reveals a dark side to the nation's reconstructed government.
The thrilling follow-up to the New York Times bestselling novel One Second After. The story picks up a year after One Second After ends, two years since the detonation of nuclear weapons above the United States brought America to its knees. After suffering starvation, war, and countless deaths, the survivors of Black Mountain, North Carolina, are beginning to piece back together the technologies they had once taken for granted: electricity, radio communications, and medications. They cling to the hope that a new national government is finally emerging. Then comes word that most of the young men and women of the community are to be drafted into an "Army of National Recovery" and sent to trouble spots hundreds of miles away. When town administrator John Matherson protests the draft, he's offered a deal: leave Black Mountain and enter national service and the draft will be reduced. But the brutal suppression of a neighboring community under its new federal administrator and the troops accompanying him suggests that all is not as it should be with this burgeoning government.

The audio book is very entertaining, and it keeps you listening. I have not listened to the first book in the series, One Second After, but you don't really need to have any background. In spots, the story is a bit cliche in terms of "good vs. evil" and "the government is bad" but still a fun story.

Best book this year. Both excitingly thrilling and horrifically terrifying, this story will keep you up at night, thinking of the all too real possibility of it's reality! This could truly be our future. A good old fashion 'cliff hanger' !
