Authority (Southern Reach, #2)

by: Jeff VanderMeer

Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (2014)


The second book in the Southern Reach trilogy (after "Annihilation"), a new lead character tries to make sense of the organization in charge of the mysterious and deadly Area X. Still funny, and creepy, with an epic cliff-hanger of an ending, I look forward to the third book out in September.
