It’s not easy to make a sequel as good as the first book in a series, especially not when the debut – Brilliance – is nominated for an Edgar Award, but A Better World is another great thrill ride that will keep you forgetting about the world for a while and fully believing in this created one.
With a number of “brilliants” now exerting control over the United States, people are starting to get on edge about these superior beings and in congress a bill is on its way to being passed that would require every brilliant to be registered and monitored. Meanwhile a terrorist group, the “Children of Darwin,” led by brilliants, has crippled three cities, hitting them where it hurts and limiting their supplies and abilities to survive as a functioning city protecting and providing for its people.
Nick Cooper takes a new and daring assignment as advisor to the President of the United States. It’s up to Cooper to get himself dropped into the independent heart of brilliants country to get to the people he needs and find out what is making this terrorist group tick and how he can unravel it and shut it down.
Blending thrilling science fiction with action and great plot, A Better World is a great follow up to the very strong start that opens the world more but also makes things that much harder for the “good guys.” Readers will be solidly hooked and left wanting more.
