An author who "excels at combining the tension of the chase with the elements of science fiction,"* John Barnes delivered a fascinating and frightening scenario about the collapse of America's political and social infrastructure following the destruction of modern technology. Now, the author of Directive 51 and Daybreak Zero continues his story of the wild postapocalyptic frontier--and humanity's last desperate attempt to re-civilize their world…

For more than a year, Heather O'Grainne and her small band of heroes, operating out of Pueblo, Colorado, have struggled to pull the United States back together after it shattered under the impact of the event known as Daybreak. Now they are poised to bring the three or four biggest remaining pieces together, with a real President and Congress, under the full Constitution again. Heather is very close to fulfilling her oath, creating a safe haven for civilization to be reborn.

But other forces are rising too.

Some people like the new life better...

In a devastated, splintered, postapocalyptic United States, with technology thrown back to biplanes, black powder, and steam trains, a tiny band of visionaries struggles to re-create Constitutional government and civilization itself, as a new dark age takes shape around them.

First book was "Directive 51"; as usual, the cataloguer forgot to include the first book in the trilogy or series. That volume title is frequently the series title.

The first book was great but this second one is like it was written under duress or by a dozen different people and then printed as one book.

Horribly disappointing effort.
