Publisher's Summary

M. Savage - or Em, as she is called - has made a bewildering and ominous discovery. She and the other young people she was chosen to lead awoke in strange coffins with no memory of their names or their pasts. They faced an empty, unknown place of twisting tunnels and human bones. With only one another to depend on, they searched for answers and found the truth about their terrifying fate. Confronted by a monstrous enemy, they vowed never to surrender - and, by any means, to survive.

The planet Omeyocan may be the sanctuary Em and her comrades seek. But the planet for which they were created turns out not to be a pristine, virgin world. Vestiges of a lost civilization testify to a horrifying past that may yet repeat itself. And when a new enemy creeps from the jungle shadows, Em and her young refugees learn there's nowhere left to run. They face a simple choice: fight or die.

In the midst of this desperate struggle, their unity is compromised from within - and a dangerous zealot devoted to a bloodthirsty god moves to usurp Em's command, threatening to lead them all down a path to violent doom.

Your Newest Addiction

As a fan of Scott Sigler's work, I had to check out the Generations trilogy. Having just read "Alive," I was itching to listen to book 2. I've had my headphones in my ears almost nonstop over the last 24 hours, unable to stop listening. Emma Galvin's voice perfectly personifies how one would imagine a character like Em (M) would sound; she also reflects the emotions that Em would feel as the story progresses. Can't wait for the final book!

How can it get even better?

Man! So outstanding! Just like Scott Sigler promised, the 2nd part of this trilogy is more engaging than the first. Because I am very familiar with all of his books, I am able to make many connections between all. I am SO jonesing for the next part!

Worthy of your time and credits

A beautifully executed departure from Sigler's usual style of storytelling, this series has had me guessing (mostly incorrectly) the entire time. I can hardly wait for the next installment!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Em!! She drove me bonkers in the first book in a few parts but she has got her ducks together for the most part in this one.

Which character – as performed by Emma Galvin – was your favorite?

Em! Emma Galvin is a fantastic reader and I she portrays what I believe Em would actually sound like if she were real.

YES!! I only hit pause when I had to.

Any additional comments?

This story will have you spinning! It has many surprises and lots of fun twists. I very much enjoyed this and I cannot wait to listen to the next one! You get to explore a new world with the crew you go to know before. Fight new monsters and learn new tricks and what the symbols mean. The action, the romance, the exploration, EVERYTHING makes this book a must read.

Sigler Does it Again

Just as addictive as Earthcore! Alight keeps you wanting more and more and more. it's very hard to put this book down!! Sigler sucks you into this story, makes you fall in love with characters only to feel betrayed. I can't wait for book 3

Another great Sigler book

What made the experience of listening to Alight: Book Two of the Generations Trilogy the most enjoyable?

Great story line with a great group of characters, if you liked book one, you will not be disappointed with book two. I listened to book one for free on the podcast and while I tried to do the same with this book, I got too invested in the story to only hear it once a week. After two podcasts, I ended up using my credit to buy the audiobook version and couldn't be happier. Emma Galvin is a fantastic reader and a great fit for the story's main character.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Sure if I had the time i would have loved to listen to this in one shot.

Any additional comments?

I really hope Emma Galvin is able to read book three, it would feel like a different story without her reading.

Heart Pounding!

Would you consider the audio edition of Alight: Book Two of the Generations Trilogy to be better than the print version?

N/A

What other book might you compare Alight: Book Two of the Generations Trilogy to and why?

I have no idea what I could compare this too. There is nothing else like it.

What about Emma Galvin’s performance did you like?

Everything! She really takes hold of you and she puts you in the place of any of the characters she describes.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I haven't quite finished it, but I believe it is going to make me hurt. My stomach has turned at certain points, so my stress level has been captured. This is coming from someone who doesn't peak on excitement, hate, fear, etc.. when reading/listening, but you've done it for me.

Any additional comments?

Alight is way better and is the best book he's ever written so far. I've never read a book that has made my heart pound before.

Scott and Emma. You make a great team and i'm happy to have listened to your books.
