Being human is no longer enough. The fanatical Red Widows sweep destruction across the abandoned lands. Their aggression threatens to destroy the city Gerry had risked his life to save. Petal, the woman Gerry has come to love is dying. The despotic cabal, The Family, demand he brings her to them, but she's missing, running from the Widows, searching for the truth of her origins before it's too late. When their paths cross, Petal and Gerry will hold the fate of humankind in their hands-if they can survive the malevolent digital entity that stalks them from the shadows. Code Breakers: Beta is a post-apocalyptic, near-future thriller that will delight fans of The Matrix, Neuromancer, and Blade Runner.

In the second novel of the Code Breakers series, Gerry and Petal discover their origins while working to stop another apocalypse.
This novel was a lot better than the first novel…all the mysteries are answered and things start to make more sense. Two new enemies are introduced, a lot of back story is expanded, and another set of good guys with several strong characters are added too.
I really enjoyed the exploration of Petal’s origins and family, and the reveals of what caused the cataclysm. The book had a lot of exploration of what can happen when technology goes too far, and what it means to be human.
The narrator continued to do a great job and I never heard any misses, wrong voices, etc.
Overall, a great second book and I’m looking forward to reading the next.
