[The Eschaton Tales: Vol. 2] by [Kieran Marcus] continues the story of a world facing a crisis. The characters are well developed and it was enjoyable to read. Although I understand that they are stand alone stories they are all connected and best read in order. I wish, just as with [Vol 1], that the chapters had been titled with the location and year. It jumps around, almost like giant time leaps, and giving the reader an idea of the setting for each chapter would be helpful. It was like a puzzle and the connections were great just it could use some clarification. Of course that could just be me. I would really like to read [Vol. 3].
