A few months ago I wrote about Americosis, which I liked a lot. Now volume 2 is out and I was surprised that it came out so quick. I believe the author may have lined it up earlier? Anyway, as with all such books (and TV series!) I tend to go back to the former and skim through a few pages before I start reading the next part. It sort of tunes me in.
The characters in this book sort of pick up where they left off. The story of the savior, the presidential candidate, and the human virus carrier and mix and supplement each other. But to me, the book was a little lopsided. I’d said in my previous review that the Savior story appealed to me the least. But it seemed to have the most footage in this book. I may have to swallow that complaint later on as I have a feeling that this story will be centre-stage.
But like I predicted, the presidential candidate seems to be losing it, calling another man Antichristian in one of his speeches no less! I really like the character of Erica, the psychiatrist and will be looking forward to reading more of her in the next parts. The human virus bit also kept me entertained, even if I felt that I would have to wait for the next instalment to see how it really slots in.
All in all, at a very short length, this is a nice thriller series to pick up. I have a feeling the author won’t disappoint and I like the simplistic lucid style of writing – perfect for a travel read!
