Two Roads to Paradise is the second book in the Be Careful What You Wish For series, and I was so excited to read it! Lucky for me, I was able to start it as soon as I finished book 1, The Way Out!
This book picks up a few years after the first book ends. I would recommend reading The Way Out before picking this one up, so you aren’t lost. Now that the world has stabilized the rebuilding of the human race, they have to turn their focus to rebuilding everything else. The story follows the characters from the first book as they set out on their individual adventures to help with this task.
I enjoyed the more dystopian feel of this story. It’s been a few years since the human race was almost wiped out, and now the people have to set about restabilizing their lives. I always enjoy these types of stories, and this one didn’t let me down!
I really think that readers of post-apocalyptic stories are going to enjoy this series. I would definitely recommend it!
Where to Find This Book:
Although the reappearance of the Alpha Centauri I crew was miraculous, it was not the celebratory homecoming they expected. Their return to a world reeling from a pandemic that wiped out more than half the population thrust them right into the center of controversy and conflict. Now, three years later, though the tide has turned and the survival of the human race seems to be secure, the survival of human relations is far less certain. The cure should have been the injection of hope the world needed to restore balance and end the chaos of the last four decades. Instead, the complex implications for personal rights and freedom have fractured the North American territory in such a way that the division may never be repaired. As the crew dispersed to find their place in this new landscape, Hunter Young found himself embedded in the Marshall administration as an agent for the mysterious K Group. What had been a relatively uneventful assignment suddenly becomes a whirlwind of adventure as he is called to a rendezvous that requires a long and circuitous journey.
