Ethan Burke has seen the world beyond. He's sheriff, and one of the few who knows the truth-- Wayward Pines isn't just a town.

Ethan Burke has now been named sheriff of Wayward Pines, the town/prison that he entered 3 years ago and has not been permitted to leave. He is given the truth about the town by David Pilcher (creator of said town).
There are still people who are trying to leave the town, remembering lives from the past. Ethan is with his wife and his son, but he eventually tells Theresa the truth about the situtation.
His former lover, Kate, is also in the town and she seems to be a deviant, not following the rules, so David Pilcher needs Ethan to get her straightened out.

The tale hasn't really progressed much further than the first novel. ( )

So, in the first Hunger Games book, Ethan Burke railed against the game, refusing to play, and then ultimately learned how to game the game and win.

In this, the second Hunger Games book, he's thrown into a different, more deadly game and the one pulling the levers is the ruling overlord.

Oh...wait...no, this isn't the Hunger Games, this is Wayward Pines.

Does that mean that I can't predict that the third and final book will be about Ethan leading the charge against the evil ruling class and ultimately triumphing with the help of a person who was once a friend but who was turned by the leaders and then found a way to redeem himself?

Yeah, well, we'll see.

In all seriousness, this novel, for me, suffered from the sophomore slump in that there was very little that was new. The first book was all about the mystery. This one was more about raging against the machine, and that can be a compelling story, but I simply didn't find Crouch up to the task.

And I simply couldn't get past the idiocy of Ethan being taken to the resisters' secret hideout after being hooded so he wouldn't know where they were taking him, much being made of the misdirection etc., and yet, it was only when they had gotten to the secret entrance that they checked him for a chip. Really? All the misdirection in the world wouldn't have helped when--after Crouch spent a fair amount of pages selling us on the notion that it's the chip that pings the cameras and audio.

Stupid stupid stupid.

Let's see if he's up to the third Hunger Games...er...Wayward Pines story. ( )

All in all, an excellent sequel to Pines. With the big reveal in Pines about the town, it was not clear where Crouch would go next. Ethan Burke is now Sheriff, and is asked by the reigning powers to investigate a brutal murder of an insider. Ethan doggedly pursues the truth, but along the way is forced to toe the line and puts his former partner in harm's way. There are some further mysteries revealed about schooling and wife Theresa's past. Looking forward to reading the conclusion (so I can finish the mini-series, which does not follow the books as closely as I would like.) ( )

Better than the first one! Better than the TV show. Such a creepy thought. I'm glad I waited until the show as over so I could read all 3 of these back to back. ( )

I don't say this often because often the sequels aren't as good as the originals, but great sequel!! This is a worthy second volume for this trilogy. building well on the first and setting up the third with an admirable ending. The many unanswered questions regarding the future of the town as well as the relationships between Ethan, Adam, Theresa, and Kate as well as the fate of Pilcher and Pam will be the fodder to drive the next book. I went into this one with a bit of aprehension as most of the conflicts seemed to be resolved in the first book, but thus far hidden tensions are brought tot he fore and all is not only not what it seems in Wayward Pines, but it is also by no means idyllic. Hidden movements for freedom, potential for revolution and a growing realization that the price of protection from a deadly hostile world is submission to authoritarian rule drive "Wayward" ever deeper toward conflict and an unkown future. Looking forward to "The Last Town" ( )

[BEST & WORST '13] Top 10 Horror Novels of the Year!

1. Wayward, by Blake Crouch
(September 17; Thomas & Mercer)

Book two of the best horror/sci-fi series you haven’t been reading. Blake Crouch’s brilliantly paced, meticulously plotted novels––about the mysterious developments in ‘Wayward Pines‘, an isolated, heavily surveilled mountain town–– deserve a much wider audience. With M. Night Shyamalan’s Fox mini-series arriving in 2014, Crouch and ‘Wayward Pines’are about to hit the big time.
