In Constant Fear, by Peter Liney, pulls your attention from the very first page. I didn't realize that this was book three in a series until almost the end of the book when a few references to the past were made. In Constant Fear is definitely a stand alone journey, but it will make you want to go back and read book one and two. Clancy and Lena are a couple who show the epitome of family love. Their small band of friends turned family are an integral part of the story. I loved reading about the humans turned robots who were the essence of evil. Jimmy was a fascinating secondary character who could seemingly fix anything. I enjoyed every character in this book. They were all well developed and offered something that furthered the journey. The idea of a commune under a satellite that punishes was so neat I had to stop and think about it. The real story here is one of family, friends, and sacrifice. If you like action, emotions and a fast paced journey, this is the book for you. I highly recommend it and plan to go find book one and two right away.
Over a year has passed since "Big Guy" Clancy and the ragged band of survivors managed to escape from the hellish reality of the City. Pursued by the ruthless leader of Infinity-the corporation behind the systematic extermination of thousands of "lower class" citizens-they've been on the run ever since, constantly looking over their shoulders.
Despite this, they have forged a new life working the land on an abandoned smallholding on the other side of the mountains. Hidden there, they are as close to happy as they can be.
But peace is short-lived. Strange things start to happen in the valley: too many unlucky coincidences convince them that another power is rising against them, and there are many questions to be answered: what is the shadow maker? And who-or what-has begun to howl in the night?
