General Note:
Sequel to: Dread Nation.
Summary, etc.:
The sequel to the New York Times bestselling epic Dread Nation is an unforgettable journey of revenge and salvation across a divided America. After the fall of Summerland, Jane McKeene hoped her life would get simpler: Get out of town, stay alive, and head west to California to find her mother. But nothing is easy when you're a girl trained in putting down the restless dead, and a devastating loss on the road to a protected village called Nicodemus has Jane questioning everything she thought she knew about surviving in 1880s America. What's more, this safe haven is not what it appears--as Jane discovers when she sees familiar faces from Summerland amid this new society. Caught between mysteries and lies, the undead, and her own inner demons, Jane soon finds herself on a dark path of blood and violence that threatens to consume her. But she won't be in it alone. Katherine Deveraux never expected to be allied with Jane McKeene. But after the hell she has endured, she knows friends are hard to come by--and that Jane needs her too, whether Jane wants to admit it or not. Watching Jane's back, however, is more than she bargained for, and when they both reach a breaking point, it's up to Katherine to keep hope alive--even as she begins to fear that there is no happily-ever-after for girls like her.

    *Starred Review* In Ireland's riveting sequel to Dread Nation (2018), Summerland has fallen and Jane McKeene is headed west to find her mother. She and Katherine embark on the journey together, trying to stay ahead of the undead by hopping from settlement to settlement. Their goal is to reach the village of Nicodemus, which is supposed to be a safe haven; however, once they arrive, Jane and Katherine find more danger, lies, and deceit. The devastating turn of events plunges Jane down a path of violence that may consume her. Meanwhile, Katherine, who is warring with her own inner demons, tries desperately to be a beacon and friend to Jane. This feat may prove impossible for Katherine, as both girls seek a peace that their identities and the terrifying state of their country could prevent them from achieving. Ireland tackles heavy questions about racism, nationalism, and identity against a historical fantasy backdrop set during a time when America is reeling after the Civil War and African Americans are trying to find their place in society, while still suffering under the ills and oppression left behind from slavery. This novel will challenge readers to confront how people strip others of their humanity and how America has always exploited and abused Black bodies. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
