Volk picks up around 20 years after the calamities in Eliadia, where most of Eutopia is set. Nickle brings back the amazing cast of characters from the first book which I immediately sunk back into like a broke in recliner when I started reading. Eutopia tends to focus more on Dr. Andrew Waggoner and Jason Thistledowns survival from The Juke and Nazi Eugenicists, while Volk has more focus on Annie Rowe (Waggoner in this book) and Ruth Harper and their heroics after Dr. Waggoner and Thistledown are roped back into The Juke’s presence. Since I am a huge fan of this group of characters I enjoyed the first part of the book which provides some background on what is happening with the characters. The action really picks up around page 200 in this incredible scene where Annie Waggoner poisons a doctor to get information about what is going on. The scene provides important context and really sets the book off, I couldn’t put it down after that.
I loved Volk and found it to be a skilled follow up to an amazing first novel. There are some names and places that may not make sense until later in the book if you haven’t read Eutopia first. I honestly think if you want to get the full effect of this novel then you need to read Eutopia first. I don’t want to give anything away but Nickle has left it open for further sequels and I hope he finds time to do it. Nickle is now one of my favorite writers. Whether it be novel or short stories, Nickle has a knack for writing weird thought-provoking fiction. If you are a fan of Laird Barron, Jeffrey Thomas, or other writers of dark thought-provoking mythos, then check out David Nickle.
Great book. Scared me silly - based on what today's science could do in the wrong hands.
