The sequel to the New York Times best-selling epic Dread Nation is an unforgettable journey of revenge and salvation across a divided America.

After the fall of Summerland, Jane McKeene hoped her life would get simpler: Get out of town, stay alive, and head west to California to find her mother.
But nothing is easy when you’re a girl trained in putting down the restless dead, and a devastating loss on the road to a protected village called Nicodemus has Jane questioning everything she thought she knew about surviving in 1880s America.
What’s more, this safe haven is not what it appears - as Jane discovers when she sees familiar faces from Summerland amid this new society. Caught between mysteries and lies, the undead, and her own inner demons, Jane soon finds herself on a dark path of blood and violence that threatens to consume her.
But she won’t be in it alone.
Katherine Deveraux never expected to be allied with Jane McKeene. But after the hell she has endured, she knows friends are hard to come by - and that Jane needs her, too, whether Jane wants to admit it or not.
Watching Jane’s back, however, is more than she bargained for, and when they both reach a breaking point, it’s up to Katherine to keep hope alive - even as she begins to fear that there is no happily-ever-after for girls like her.
I'm always so leary reading sequels because they do not always measure up, but this was a great sequel, it starts right after the first book (which I read the week before). Great storyline and the characters were well developed. I laughed, cried and held my breath a few times. I really enjoyed this book.
Love this series, I need more of Jane & Kate
This book is unique. I love the characters and the surprises. The rawness of being black is still the same today as it was back then. The way she draws you in and you get attached to the characters , I’m hooked. Please let me know if she writes a third chapter. I hope so
I loved this series so much and can't stop telling people about it. So captivating!!
