I died. And I came here. To a place they call Two. They say one out of three people who die come here. Berlin is here. She's seven. She forgot to take her insulin. Darrel is here. He drowned. Dr. Raleigh is here. He's the head counselor at the TAF (Two Adjustment Facility) I'm at. He died in an avalanche. Perry Whitcomb is here. I connected with him on Deadbook (Two's version of Facebook). He was on my soccer team in middle school. He collapsed during one of our games. And get this, Heath Ledger is here. (Yeah, the Joker himself.) He just had a new movie come out.
Anyhow, it's been a lot to handle, this new world, this second life, but I think I'm starting to come around. I was about to take the bar exam (for the second time) the week after I died. They say I can take it here. They say I can become a public defender just like I'd planned. We'll see. Sure, I'm starting to adjust, but I still have lots of questions: Why can't women get pregnant here? Who are this group called "Borns" that no one will talk about? Why do They always seem to know exactly where you are every second of every day? I'm not certain of a lot these days, but I do know one thing for sure: there is a lot more to Two than people are telling...
"I've already enjoyed the Henry Bins series and the Thomas Prescott series. Maddy Young is another great character. I can't wait to see what happens in the series. Thank you Nick Pirog for another addictive story." -diane coe
"This book was awesome. It kept my attention from the get go, it was very well written, and the characters were strong. It begins with 'dead' Maddy, a law student who just flunked the bar and wakes up in a world where everyone has 'died'. Through several odd events he finds that everything is not as it seems and begins to question the world he lives in. I don't want to spoil the book, so I will just say that the stuff he discovers, and learns, are life shaking for him." -prea66
"It is [Pirog's] best work yet." -railroader
"Great sci-fi thriller! Started off light but engaging and develops into an page-turning thriller. The characters are super unique and I feel like Berlin is my best friend too. I'm really excited to find out more about the Born's. I can only imagine what they're capable of. Can't wait for the next book!" -Maximus11
This is an amazing premise for a story. It kept me curious throughout. Don’t leave me hanging! I can’t wait for the next one.
I see a great series coming!
Nick, Nick, Nick. Your writings continue to entertain. And you don’t just rehash everyone else’s plots. You go off in brave new directions, not afraid to take a risk. This one has a nice twisty ending (although my sister, who’s a big fan, swears she saw it coming). Accolades should be coming in from all over for this one. Take a moment and bask in the glory, then get your butt back to work on the next one. Lives are depending on it. Metaphorically speaking. Great book. Thanks.
I was entertained from beginning to end. I can usually guess how a book will end but I was pleasantly surprised at the end. Looking forward to the next book.
