Product description


"I am equally in love with and completely terrified by this sequel. The first book was frightening but the revelations of the second book made it so much scarier. The actions of the DMC were horrifying, even if tempered by later understanding. The actions of the "Good Guys" make you question which side you should actually be rooting for. Not to mention, our REAL world could look similar to this for our grandchild or their kids. And that to me is the scariest idea. Enora remained consistent, if a little repetitive earlier in the book. She also showed great growth and maturity during the sequel. The relationship between Enora and Springer evolved realistically and was a good balance against the atrocities surrounding them. A little speck of light in the horror. The pseudo mothering role Enora finds herself in is pivotal to her growth and to the enlightenment of the story. The ending is by far the best and worst part of the book. It's heartbreaking, shocking, and evocative. I can't say the ending is cathartic but it's more important that the message of it resonates. It's a complete ending but leaves you questioning the motives of everyone and the future of humanity. A fantastic follow up to an amazing debut. Highly recommend."

"Burden of Truth is the second in this series and Kristin Ward did not disappoint as she shows the reader a completely different side to the story. Very well written, well thought out and well researched, the book compels the reader to reflect, think and perhaps wake up and realize that it is not the future mentioned, but it is also the present slowly getting there. There are various points to consider, as in: - do the 'good guys' merit the word 'good' even with the eventual explanation given to their actions? What are the actual motives of everyone concerned? Is this the scenario that we as humanity deserve? No one really knows the whole truth and the whole story of anything that occurs. History, no matter how watered down has shown this. Much is hidden before our very eyes and it is always just a partial truth and a partial story. What has always saved humanity is hope. Highly recommended!"

"In a word-Amazing! This was quite the ride! Just when I thought I had the plot figured out, there was another twist! I was lucky enough to obtain an ARC (advanced reader copy) of this novel and let me just say it exceeded my expectations! The first novel was incredible and left me wanting more and this sequel truly did not disappoint. I was enthralled as I read every page and I was truly satisfied with the ending. I cannot wait to see what else Mrs. Ward has in store for us!"

"Goodness, where to start? I really enjoyed this sequel to After the Green Withered! This book was definitely a twist, and it showed a different side to the first book. To me, there was just so much emotion in the words and this story, it really got to me. The writing was also amazing. I loved it and would recommend both the first book and this sequel!"
