Summary

They promised purification. They delivered poison. One that hijacks the mind. A curse that will change humanity forever.

Behind the protective walls of the Colony...

Layla grows restless. The Colony is filled with secrets, and James keeps her in the dark. So, when a woman from her youth opens a crack into her past, Layla discovers everything she believed about the Colony has been a lie - even the baby she carries.

Burdened with an unnerving pregnancy and tormented by terrifying hallucinations and blackouts, she sets out to uncover the unspeakable truths inside the Colony’s walls. 

Outside, in the poisoned world...

The virus has killed millions and devastated the economy, but investigative reporter Nick Slater is determined to find and expose the illegal biohacking ring that’s snatching young people from the impoverished streets.

When he’s framed for arson and forced into hiding, his only chance of getting the story is to join the unsuspecting victims herded onto buses and swept off into the night.

As Nick risks his life barreling toward the truth and Layla struggles to constrain the invasive life growing inside her...

A new, evolved breed of humans is about to be unveiled.

Interesting perspective

Layla is impregnated with a foetus promised to be the future of survival for humankind. Nick is a cop searching for Layla in a world where a virus has killed millions. The story follows them both until they collide for the climax.

This was an interesting story, particularly given the times we are currently living in. It really makes you wonder what’s happening behind those closed doors in all the laboratories. I really liked listening to it from different perspectives and timeframes, and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance, it was both entertaining and fitting.

Excellent

I loved how the story continued. I would have like for there to be more about the old people with the babies.
Layla’s reveal was a bit of an ah-ha moment where you have this idea of it but you just aren’t sure. I hate that she stayed with the one person who lied to her and used her.
It’s a great story and one I’ll probably remember & recommend for years to come.
Narration by Noah and Erin was outstanding.

Great Follow up story

I have been waiting for this book since I finished Pain colony. Just like with the first book there is some unusual science that is just enough inside the realm of possibility to be believable. Sister 'Layla" is aware something suspicious is going on in the colony but blindly trust James and that proves to be a very bad idea. Nick is by far my favorite character! He is unwilling to let the story behind the "virus" stay behind closed doors no matter the cost! I loved the back and forth between present day virus survivors and the beginning of the virus inside the colony. It gives you background while still continuing the story. This was a fantastic book and I look forward to the next one by Ms. Hunt. I received this book for free for an honest review.

Fantastic followup to "The Pain Colony"

I do suggest reading book 1 first because it's a perfect segue into this book.
This is such a well-written story that takes place a few years after book 1, following two timelines and unravelling the truth behind a strange pandemic in a way that's never been done before.
The narrator is wonderful. I would definitely choose books by both narrator and author again.

Loved it

As good as the first book! This book will take you into the world where man tries to create the perfect human, at all costs. They create the perfect killer who kills without remorse and without hesitation. Except for Leyla, unable to kill James, her husband, she fights the unnatural urge to kill him. Ultimately becoming the first to take an experimental drug that is supposed to take away the murderous urges.
This book contains disturbing content involving infants and use of stem cells.

Both narrator's do a fantastic job again bringing life to an audible so you can experience a book in ways you can't by reading it yourself.

Took a Fantastic Turn!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I love when you think the second book in a series is going to keep going in the same direction as the first, and the author pulls a fast one on you and swivels in another direction. I thoroughly enjoyed The Pain Colony and wondered what else Hunt had up their sleeve. The Rage Colony did not disappoint. A must read!

Unexpected

I really enjoyed the first book in the series so I was excited to get a chance to listen to this one. However I have to admit I did not expect the story to go where it went in this book. And with the year we had in 2020 it resonated very strongly. I'm a little afraid to find out where this story will take us the next book. Highly recommended.
