The year is 2042. New York and Washington DC have been leveled by nuclear bombs. New Orleans is submerged beneath sixty feet of water. The United States no longer exists, and in its place two new nations maintain an uneasy truce: an Islamic republic in the west and the Christian Bible Belt in the south.

But stability is threatened when the president of the Islamic Republic discovers that a Bible Belt warlord, known simply as the Colonel, is searching for a super weapon hidden inside a remote mountain decades earlier by the old United States regime. Rakkim Epps, former shadow warrior and hero of Prayers for the Assassin, is soon sent on a perilous mission to infiltrate the Belt with Leo, a naive and arrogant nineteen-year-old whose intellectual gifts are crucial to the success of the mission.

Together they sneak through the Belt, a loose and lawless territory where David Koresh’s compound has been reconstructed as a tourist site, coal deposits in Georgia have been burning unchecked for thirty years, and a bloodthirsty, drug-addled militia prepares for the end times. When Rakkim and Leo finally reach the Colonel’s mountain, finding the weapon system becomes the least of their problems...

    " I thought this was a better book than the first one. Most of the action took place in the Bible Belt which was an interesting change. I also liked the introduction of Leo. It made it easier to relate to Rikki. "

    " Liked the first one enough to head right into the second of the trilogy "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Xavier | 11/9/2010

    " The sequel to the Prayers of the Assassin seems a bit unconnected to the first novel but does a good job of enhancing the persona of Rakkim Eps... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 8/23/2010

    " LOVE the Assasin trilogy. A gripping read from the get go. It takes an alternate view of the future of the US that I found absolutely amazing. A must read for all walks of life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christen | 4/7/2010

    " This one was ok, but not nearly as good as the first in the trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 12/2/2009

    " The second 'Assassins' novel. Better than the first. Plenty of action but not so hot on character development.

    An eyeopener into the psyche of the Muslim mind and actions.

    Sci-fi only because it is 40 years in the future, but not too far out in the technical development area.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 9/21/2009

    " Far superior to the first volume in Ferrigno's trilogy, if only for the fact that he explores areas of his futuristic vision that we are most interested in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 CT | 9/12/2009

    " An action-packed sequel! Can't wait for the last book in the trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 5/15/2009

    " The second of a planned trilogy of a United States post Islamic Coup and pre-Christian-Muslim Civil War. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 4/11/2009

    " This was really gripping...the author's idea of what America might be like 50 years in the future under Muslim control is chillingly realistic. "

    " mediocre. Come on, Ferrigno, finish strong. "

About the Author

Robert Ferrigno was born in South Florida, a tropical backwater rife with mosquitoes and flying cockroaches. After earning degrees in philosophy, filmmaking, and creative writing, he returned to his first love: poker. He spent the next five years gambling fulltime and living in an area populated by starving artists, alcoholics, thieves, and drug dealers, becoming friends with many people who would later populate his novels. He used some of his winnings to start a punk rock magazine called the Rocket, for which he interviewed The Clash, Elvis Costello, Iggy Pop, and other popular bands. The success of the Rocket earned him a job as a feature writer for a daily newspaper in Southern California, where he took the adventure-and-new-money beat. For the seven years he worked there, he flew jets with the Blue Angels, drove Ferraris, and went for desert survival training with gun nuts. He ultimately gave up his day job to become a novelist.
