Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece

Soil (The Last Flotilla Book 2) - Colin F. Barnes

The Lost Flotilla series is a post-apocalyptic story about a group of survivors that have been living on a flotilla of ships because a mysterious natural disaster has completely flooded the entire world.


Soil pickups where Salt left off. The survivors have learned the location of a secret underground facility that might have information about what caused the disaster so they train a crew to run their sub and go in search of this place...


I liked this follow-up but I enjoyed Salt a lot more. There were just a few scenarios in this one that were a little too unbelievable and the plot just wasn't as entertaining to me. I just got the  'I've been there done that' feeling. If you haven't read a ton of other post-apocalyptic stories though you'll probably enjoy it more then I did.
