The Book of Death: Book Two
We are the unhinged.
History is in pieces. A time-travelling celestial being has interfered in the natural order, resulting in a series of butterfly effects that have reset the world as we know it. In Manhattan, the Twin Towers stand. Russia has collapsed and China is the dominant world superpower as America draws further into itself.
In New York, a suicidal immortal named Harper Whitaker finds every attempt to end her existence futile. But when the supreme realm of Atlas comes calling after the release of a deadly plague, Harper is forced into reversing the paradox. Assigned to murder seven reincarnated individuals, she must navigate an unrecognizable America to accomplish that goal.
As the remnants of humanity turn to tribalism, murder and ransacking, the lone immortal’s list of assassination targets comes with a caveat — not all of them deserve to die, and some may be instrumental in rescuing humanity’s soul from the carcass Earth has become.
Can Harper put the greater good before her death wish? And even if she can, what will be left for her afterward?

What Readers Say...
A stunning author of our time. This particular novel is one of my favorites because of the subject-matter. I love Gagnier as a writer and thinker but this really kept me on the edge of my seat because I absolutely am a huge fan of this genre and where he takes his twists and turns. I can't reveal anything other than to say, if you've never read Gagnier this is as good a place to start as any, and if you're familiar with the arc of his story telling, reoccurring themes and reunited characters you will NOT be disappointed! Gagnier has positioned himself not only as an author of immense versatility and sensitivity, but he's rocking the SciFi genre so hard, I expect he'll literally carve his name into a planet some day.
Amazon / Goodreads Review
I have enjoyed numerous stories by this author and this story did not disappoint. The story is time-bending and an alternative universe or time dimension. This author has a skill for bringing his story alive so that I can live it! As with the first book of Death - Leviathan, this book is amazing. I always look forward to the next book by this author!
Amazon / Goodreaders Review
Underworld Earth is the second book in The Book of Death series. It is the consummate battle of good vs evil in the wasteland known as Earth. This story has well-developed characters, one of whom must kill seven people whose previous deaths were undone by the Breach. The storyline is fast-paced, well written, and thought-provoking. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
