The debased Path of Typhon began to preach evil and corruption as their own ends rather than as tools for freedom. Luckily the fall of Constantinople, one of the centers of thiS heresy, has greatly reduced the numbers of those who believe such things.
The slowly growing Path of Subversion holds that only through the corruption of large-scale institutions can enough people be freed. This is largely believed to be a delusion bordering on heresy, however. By the modern nights, the Via Serpentis has evolved into two Paths of Enlightenment , each offering a different focus in following the word of Set: While the Road of Set is the source of dedication to Set and distrust against outsiders from the Road, the overt focus on corruption and dislike against hierarchical power structures seems to stem from the Path of Apep.

Now, I'm not the crazy patriotic prepper type but if you fear to go into the DMV because of how bureaucracy works, wait until the apocalypse. Great read, looking forward to more about Max.

JL is one of those authors you go back to between more complex authors because the writing is comfortable and interesting. Jul 01, Warren Thoms rated it really liked it. Just a hair under 4 stars.
If you liked the first in this series, you will like this one as well. I would have liked it to be longer. The story follows Max as he moves away from the ruckus that he started in the first book as he thinks that they are going to target his friends to get to them. This does last too long and he gets back into the fight.

A surrealistic look at a possible future This is a well written work. Like a piece of art, it held me captive inside of it. The great ones bring you into the book. You become a character in its pages as you live next to the others. Bourne brought me inside from the first few pages.

I closed the book with hope. Great A fellow "zombie prepped" first handed me a copy of Day by Day Armageddon a few years ago, and I haven't been able to stop reading and re-reading Mr.
Bourne's work ever since. The Tomorrow War series is even more frightening than the zombies, as the author uses his extensive knowledge of government policies and procedures to paint a horrifying picture of what could, and just may, happen in the near future.

Bourne is the second book of The Chronicles of Max. It is the follow up to Tomorrow War. It is a post-apocalyptic international thriller. It is fast paced. It keeps your interest.
