The Book of Etta (The Road to Nowhere #2) Read Online Free - In the gripping sequel to the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel The Book of the Unnamed Midwife, one woman undertakes a desperate journey to rescue the future.
Etta comes from Nowhere, a village of survivors of the great plague that wiped away the world that was. In the world that is, women are scarce and childbearing is dangerous…yet desperately necessary for humankind’s future. Mothers and midwives are sacred, but Etta has a different calling. As a scavenger. Loyal to the village but living on her own terms, Etta roams the desolate territory beyond: salvaging useful relics of the ruined past and braving the threat of brutal slave traders, who are seeking women and girls to sell and subjugate.
When slavers seize those she loves, Etta vows to release and avenge them. But her mission will lead her to the stronghold of the Lion—a tyrant who dominates the innocent with terror and violence. There, with no allies and few weapons besides her wits and will, she will risk both body and spirit not only to save lives but also to liberate a new world’s destiny.

I loved the first book in this series. The Book of the Unnamed Midwife. I felt like it was a whole new take on the dystopian story world. I will say that normally I don't read many series and I shouldn't have picked this one up. I didn't hate it..I didn't love it either.
It picks up a hundred year...

The Book of Etta is the follow-up of the extraordinary The Book of the Unnamed Midwife. For more information you can read my review here.
The Book of Etta is the kind of follow up for which you need to read the previous book in the series in order to understand what is going on. In The Book of Unn...

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC!
The first book in the Road to Nowhere series hit me out of nowhere with it's stark and uncompromising view of humanity and the inhumanity of men toward women when a plague decimated (literally) the population of women. There's only one woman out of ten men across t...

Spoilery items below... I'm not giving away any key plot points, but... eh. Just a warning. You must read the first book before attempting this one. One hundred years has passed. The fever pl...

Thank you 47North and NetGalley for providing me this copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
The Book of the Unnamed Midwife is hands down the best book I have read this years, so there was a lot of pressure for this sequel. I am so happy to say that it did not disappoint, despite fo...

This is the second book of the The Road to Nowhere series that started with The Book of the Unnamed Midwife. At first I thought the first one was so flabbergastingly hard to read (violent, not glossing anything over) that I felt more numb during this (the shock having worn off perhaps), that the...

Make me. I was made. I made me.
Wow. Just wow. What a great book. Deliverance meets Priscilla, Queen of the Desert meets Mad Max meets the end of the world. This deserves every price and award it gets nominated for. I was unsure if I even wanted to read this, after liking Unnamed Midwife so much....

***Note: I received a copy curtesy of Netgalley and 47North in exchange for an honest review.
When I read The Book of the Unnamed Midwife, I thought it was a perfect book all by itself, with no need whatsoever of a sequel. However, after reading The Book of Etta, I think this brought more insight...

I feel a bit ambivalent about my rating. I wasn't completely thrilled with the first half of the book, but I liked the second half better. All of it was pretty depressing and intense, but not as satisfying as I would have liked. The ending was pretty great though.
