|From The Publisher*||The world keeps getting darker in this frightening sequel to The Rule of Three |
After sixty-six days of a catastrophic global blackout, life in the suburbs is not what it used to be for Adam and his fortified neighborhood of Eden Mills. Although an explosive clash has minimized one threat from outside the walls, Adam's battle-hardened mentor, Herb, continues to make decisions in the name of security that are increasingly wrenching and questionable. Like his police chief mom and others, Adam will continue to follow Herb's lead. But when the next threat comes from an unexpected direction, nobody is ready for it. And someone is going to pay the price--because of Adam's mistakes and mistaken trust.
Brace yourself for more edge-of-your-seat survival adventure in a sequel that picks up the action right where the first book left off.
|Review Quote*|| • "The Rule of Three is a tense, smart, can't-put-it-down YA thriller about the collapse of society." --The National Post |
• "All the hallmarks of a good Walters book are here: the teenage perspective is spot on, the male hero rises to the challenges thrown his way, the pace is quick but realistic, danger and adventure are around every corner." --Quill & Quire
• "Rule of Three maintains a realistic and frightening look at what happens when technology is lost and modern society begins to fall apart." --School Library Journal
• "Adam's ethical qualms about the ruthless decisions that Herb insists they must make--turning people away from their sanctuary, treating unknown people as threats--make for nuanced reading." --Booklist
