Product description

Product Description

The Earth is suffocating under toxic skies and there’s only one way for those left behind to escape – the space elevator that sits atop the massive structure known as the Reach.

Knile Oberend has returned from exile and faced the demons of his past. Having climbed to the top of the Reach, he now faces his toughest challenge – finding a way to save those he left behind.

For years Talia Anders lived alone and in poverty. Now as she makes her way toward the Reach to rescue an old friend, a mysterious man shadows her movements and threatens to destroy her dreams of escape.

Meanwhile, disgraced cop Alec Duran has reached rock bottom. Alienated by his own colleagues, he finds himself at the mercy of a group of vigilantes who may turn out to be his only chance at salvation.

And, in the habitat far above the Reach, a discovery is made that will impact all of their futures in ways they could never anticipate.

Landfall (Book 2 of the Reach) chronicles the continuing saga of the last days of Earth and the characters whose lives become intertwined as they try to escape.

The Reach is a giant transit hub and skyscraper with the only remaining space elevator ("The Wire") connected to an orbiting space port. Escape from the ruined Earth is only for the rich or lucky few sponsored for emigration off planet to one of the distant space colonies via The Wire. Who leaves Earth and gains access to the Reach and the Wire is decided by corporate interests in The Consortium.

Book 2, Landfall, picks up where Book 1, The Reach, terminates its story with Knile returning to a ruined and polluted Earth to rescue his friends on terra firma, his proxy "family", from the malice of the rich, corrupted law enforcement, underworld figures, and inescapable toxins in the environment slowly killing anyone remaining on Earth.

A sequel to a sci-fi novel can be dangerous ground for an author. Often the follow-up story is either merely an unbroken continuation of the previous plot "to the letter" (See Jack Campbell's "Lost Fleet" series), or an insipid attempt to keep alive the inspiration and story that ended in the first book. Landfall, by Mark R. Healy, is neither of these things, but a rewarding sequel expanding its plot and characters for readers hungry for more after Book 1.

What separates Landfall from its prequel is an author growing in capacity and skill as he hones his writing into richer prose and skillfully connected expositions. The reader is drawn into the story through several intriguing sub-plots and developed lesser characters tied to Knile and Book 1's plot and foreshadowing.

It completely left book 1 behind. It was a harder read and too many people that really did not all come together till the end of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I liked the bood 27 November 2015

I liked the book.
I liked the characters even the bad guys and hoping everybody wins. Well not everyone. Even though I can relate to the bad guys, they still can't win.
Give us book 3, we still need questions answered and we can't leave our little psycher in space alone and we can't leave our earthbound hero's on earth
Good read.
