About this ebook

The New York Times bestseller Daemon unleashed a terrifying technological vision of an all-powerful, malicious computer program. Now, our world is the Daemon's world—unless someone stops it once and for all...

The Daemon is in absolute control, using an expanded network of shadowy operatives to tear apart civilization and build it anew. Even as civil war breaks out in the American Midwest in a wave of nightmarish violence, former detective Pete Sebeck—the Daemon's most powerful, though reluctant, operative—must lead a small band of enlightened humans in a movement designed to protect the new world order.  

But the private armies of global business are preparing to crush the Daemon once and for all. In a world of shattered loyalties, collapsing societies, and seemingly endless betrayal, the only thing worth fighting for may be nothing less than the freedom of all humankind.

I started this series when the first book was still self published. Suarez has since proved himself and continues to do so in the subsequent shorelines. His books are non stop, just one more page, books you devour because the story is fantastic in every sense of the word.

I tend to like books that are either exciting page turners even if not very deep (eg James Patterson), or books that are thought provoking. This book was definitely the former, with a little bit of the latter. A bit hand wavy, but interesting to think about alternative ways that people could organize themselves through technology. Plus it was a fun read!

Great book (sequel of Daemon) talking about a lot of subjects dear to me: technology, local communities, sustainable development, SMB vs big corporations, state over private initiative. And funnily enough, all of the things described in the book seem more and more realistic !!
