Publisher's Summary

A new world arises from the ashes of the old...but the fight for survival has only just begun.

In the day of the nomad, oceans flooded the continents and the Earth split open, pouring darkness into the skies. Jessica Rollins survived, but at what cost? The key to humanity's survival may lie in the backpack she recovered from her father, in data he collected more than 30 years before. Her father's final words circle around and around in her head. What does the data mean? Who is the mysterious Ufuk Erdogmus? And what is...sanctuary?

Loved it

I found this book as well as the first one Nomad to be very well done. Good story line that kept moving in unpredictable ways. Think it would make a great movie as well!

From speculative fiction to stereotype

After Nomad, this book was a disappointment. I was so excited, having seen the higher reader review on Amazon, but I’m not sure what the causality of this could be. Mather’s characters have fallen into embarrassing stereotypes — at one point in the story, a small child in the mountains is mystified by a “magic flying machine” (plane) ... even completely unschooled people from my father’s tribe in rural South Sudan back in the 1950s knew what planes were. These kids lives in the mountains of Italy. Planes could not be that much of a mystery — could they?

As well researched as Mather’s science might be, his sense of humanity is off. It’s getting tough to read this series.

This is not scifi

I was looking for science-fiction but all I found was Hollywood-style actions with unrealistic plot twists.
I stopped after a few chapter, did some research about the next two books, and thanked god that I figured it out before wasting too much time.

Worth a listen.

Good continuation of book one. Little bit unrealistic. Kinda hard to believe they would chase someone so far for the reason they give. Don’t want to spoil that. I still enjoyed it and look forward to the next book in the series.

Fantastic!

I really enjoyed this book of the nomad series. It was detailed and moved the story along at a perfect pace. I especially love the science woven into the dialogue.

Bad

I got exactly what I paid for, its part of the extended library and cost nothing. That library seems to have all the books I have tried and returned for being no good.

Story very good and perfect ending. Good job!

Roller Coaster of Uncertainty & Intrigue

I think my favorite character so far is Masara. She is who she is quite unapologetically. she lies but you know it and most often she finds it better to say nothing at all which I appreciate. Jessica drives me a little crazy but then I think what I myself might do and I know I probably couldn't do better. I fight for survival is hard enough but this book certainly doesn't leave it just to that struggle, but the underlying factors are still not 100% transparent.

I

Almost always have to complete books and series. I still think this go from what I described as a blend criminal novel with some scifi. Now it went to a confusing and pointless agent story with alot of groups both logic and unlogic. And all law enforcement is ofcourse killed by the 30 min scifi.

I probably will atleast start the last one. If it not better than this, I wont complete it.
