Miles struggles to survive in the aftermath of the return of the aliens. Banding together with his best friend Shane, they witness the world being torn to pieces once more. Will they find shelter — or survivors — in the underground subways of the city? Or only death? And what is Miles' secret, and the tragedy of his lost marriage and his disturbed past? Why does he feel like he's the center of it all? Continuing an epic story that has been the foundation of much of today's modern science fiction and apocalyptic storytelling, War of the Worlds: Second Wave picks up where the books and the movies left off.
