Two: Dark Fervor (Empire Of Rust) by V.J. Chambers
I enjoyed reading this second installment of the serial novel though some story elements still seem rough around the edges. I liked that this portion focused on developing the world and characters more. There was a nice mixture of background story and suspenseful forward progression leading up to a dramatic cliff hanger.
I enjoyed reading about the society, social customs, and traditions. I felt this installment gave me a better understanding of the world being post apocalyptic. It illustrated how much technology and knowledge was lost or suppressed by the dominant regime.
I liked that Darius, Michal, Leah and other supporting characters were developed more. I'm still not a fan of Ezekiel or Gabriel but this installment enabled me to better understand their personality and motives.
In this second installment of the Empire of Rust, the world and characters are developed more while the story begins to build up towards the unveiling of a deadly ploy.
