No More Empires, the second book in the #1 Bestseller series The Modest Proposal Institute, starts where Alexis and Shane begin building their chosen worlds. We dive below the sea with Shane and fly into space with Alexis while, on the Earth’s surface, the institute struggles to survive amid the Western world’s collapse.
Out of the turmoil, a rival emerges to challenge Alexis and Shane for the Institute's leadership.
Tomas, who builds the institute’s robots, has his own ideas about how things should be done and his way doesn’t include Alexis and Shane.
With the Founders seemingly enthralled by Tomas, Shane works secretly to prevent disaster right up to the moment Tomas decides to save the world from war and starvation.
Who are the good guys now? And will they win?
"Book one was brilliant, it this book is even more so! It's so exciting to be reading from Shane's point of view. I love how Alexis and Shane went from enemies to frenemies. And I love how the element of suspense adds more spice into this story."
"Young adult fans of dystopian and science fiction novels are going to love the second installment of The Modest Proposal Institute. Picking up where the first book left off, the story is told from Shane’s point of view. Now young men, Shane and Alexis have come to a fragile truce. Time and maturity has lessened their rivalry and the survival of the institute becomes their main focus. Amid deteriorating conditions around the world, the institute continues to grow and expand into new frontiers. But the danger isn’t only from the outside, it’s also from within. Will the institute survive these attacks?"

I had a good time reading this, the characters were great. It what I was looking for in a young adult novel, I look forward to more.
Modest Proposal Institute Book 2 : No More Empires by Paul James. I liked the first book and I like this book. This one tends to be a tad slower and has more mystery built into it but still continues the premise of the first book. If you liked the first definitely add this one to your TBR list.
