Due gets the second volume of ‘The Apocalypse Triptych’ underway, with me more than keen to find out what has happened to almost all of the characters in the first volume.
Due updates us on young Nayima, a mid-teen girl who has had to leave her home and cancer-victim grandmother behind, and we find her on the road. Fortunately she’s able to look after herself, although the story opens memorably with her following a long ways back down a road from another survivor, who is far from keen to be caught.
She does catch up with him at a deserted fairground, in which we find out some more about the virus that is wiping out humanity, and more about young Nayima’s inner strength.
