Eli and his family lived in an underground shelter they called the Compound for six years. They thought they were the only survivors of a nuclear attack, but when Eli learned that it was all a twisted experiment orchestrated by his tech-visionary father, he broke the family out. His father died trying to keep them imprisoned.

Now, the family must readjust to life in the real world. Their ordeal has made them so famous, they must stay in hiding--everyone from fatalists preparing for doomsday to the tabloid media wants a piece of them. Even worse, their father's former adviser continues to control the company Eli and his twin brother are the heirs of.

As Eli tries to determine who the family can trust, he learns the nightmare of the Compound--and his father's experiment--might not be over. The Fallout is S.A. Bodeen's highly anticipated, thrilling sequel that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Excellent sequel to The Compound that addresses the fact that escaping the compound didn't lead to a simple "they lived happily ever after" type of ending. It explores how each of the older siblings (and their mother) copes with life post-compound which is necessarily complicated by media interest in the family. It also explores their relationships with Eddy, the sibling that didn't make it into the compound.

That said, this is not strictly a 'character/relationships book'. The later portion of the book can definitely be described as a thriller though I don't want to say too much for fear of spoiling it.

A well-written quick enjoyable read addressing interesting (and sometimes creepy) ideas.

I read this book before I read The Compound and I don't think it matter very much which one you read first. This book was really good but towards the end got a little boring.
