'The Age Atomic' by Adam Christopher is book 2 of the Empire State series. Like the last book, it had a cool idea and vibe, and I liked it about as much.
Events in 'The Empire State' left a weird rift, called The Fissure, between the Empire State and New York city. It's now 1954 and a mysterious woman named Evelyn McHale is working for a shadowy new group known as Atoms For Peace. Meanwhile, in Empire State, Rad Bradley has been hired to find a missing man. It's not as straightforward as it seems and leads him to discover a strange conspiracy, some old friends, and a huge robot army.
I like the concepts. I like the world. I even like some of the characters, but something about it just doesn't quite seem to add up to something I would love, and it seems like the sort of thing I really would. Still, I'm glad I read it, and it's a pretty cool take on a pocket universe featuring an alternate New York.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Angry Robot and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
