“That’s why movies suck so bad these days; they’re making them for people who don’t even speak English. Less character development, more explosions and 3D dinosaurs and aliens and whatever.”

I’ve read Americosis Vol. 1 back in July and I think I enjoyed this second part even better than the first introduction. These novellas are not exactly your standard read and because of the adult themes and swearwords it might not be for everyone, but there is no doubt that Americosis is an intriguing story for those who are up for it. Things get so messed up at points that you just want to keep on reading to find out what on earth is actually going on… This second part gives you a slightly better idea what is happening in this dystopian world, but there are still many questions left unanswered. The pace is fast, Haydn Wilks‘ prose is easy to follow and all in all it’s a quick and entertaining read if you like this kind of dystopian madness. I personally will be looking forward to find out what happens in Vol. 3!


WARNING: Possible spoilers! Please don’t read this summary if you haven’t read Vol. 1 yet. I’ll keep the summary short but it’s almost impossible to keep it completely spoiler-free…

The strange sexually transmitted infection is still spreading and more and more people are infected. The Savior is still not closer to understanding what is happening with the America he came back to from the future and Hank is quite positive the Savior is a danger to society. The presidential candidate still believes he has to save the world and others are simply wandering around to try and find their next victim… Chaos and madness rule the world; who will survive?


Americosis Vol. 2 is the second part of a thriller/horror/sci-fi short story that is full of madness, mildly disturbing and definitely left me wanting for more. This novella is not your typical read and not everyone will appreciate this chaotic and crazy story, but I personally enjoyed reading it Without doubt an interesting novella for those who enjoy the whole thriller/horror/sci-fi genre and don’t mind a healthy dose of madness, adult themes and swearwords.
