This is the sequel to Shadow World, written by the same author. The alternate Earth forces have now invaded Deathlands, and have set up camp in the nuked out remains of the Salt Lake City area. This book again shows the superior technology in the weapons and armor, as one of the five corporate leaders of shadow earth, Dredda Trask, commands a unit set to take over Deathlands, and eventually the world.
Another terrific story, this adventure is set in a bleak environment of glass, Ryan and his gang are in a large group of slaves mining ore for Trask’s futuristic technology to continue to function. The companions are up against a power unlike any they have seen before, and the ingenuity and determination of the group is tested to the limits to not only extricate themselves from this horrible situation, but to turn the tide against their oppressors is an amazing series of events to read.
Full of action, suspense and gritty adventure, this is a great continuation in the Shadow World trilogy, with Doom Helix being the third book published several years later. Highly recommended book for any fan of this series that has not read it yet, these Shadow World books are among the very best.
