In this second installment in the Hotel Apocalypse saga, the story picks up where it was left off in Volume One, in the aftermath of the questionable death of a Denture. Certain members of the Surge, a small rebellious faction within the tower controlled by the megacorporation NextGen, seek to take what was intended to be a peaceful union of Dentures to a more lethal level. But the group is split on the issue. Until tragedy strikes and makes even the least violent of them question whether or not freedom can really be attained without bloodshed.
In Volume Two, we get some nice backstory on both Leo and Oliver. While this installment begins at the same slow, steady pace as the first, it is never sluggish or dull. This post apocalyptic vision of America is grim and dark, with things only getting worse for the enslaved Dentures at every turn. The impending birth of a child brings hope for the future, but it's an uncertain kind of hope. If things in the tower can't be changed, this unborn child's life is destined to be the same bleak existence as his parents suffer.
New and shocking truths are revealed at every turn. The pace of the story builds steadily to a sweeping, action packed conclusion that will leave you breathless and desperate for Volume Three. For fans of post apocalyptic and dystopian fiction, Hotel Apocalypse is a can't miss.
