Summary from Goodreads:

Now from the mind of a true master of suspense comes the next chapter in Bird Box. This time, Malorie is front and center, and she will confront the dangers of her world head-on.

Twelve years after Malorie and her children rowed up the river to safety, a blindfold is still the only thing that stands between sanity and madness. One glimpse of the creatures that stalk the world will drive a person to unspeakable violence. There remains no explanation. No solution.

All Malorie can do is survive.
But then comes what feels like impossible news. And with it, the first time Malorie has allowed herself to hope. Someone very dear to her, someone she believed dead, may be alive.

Malorie has a harrowing choice to make: to live by the rules of survival that have served her so well, or to venture into the darkness and reach for hope once more.

I didn't think Malorie could get any more paranoid.

Its been many years since Malorie and the children took their harrowing trip down the river. A lot has changed, including their living situation. When a man comes to the door with proof that there is a colony of survivors, two of which are her parents, the hope that she had lost overcomes her. Could it be true? The only way to know is to take another dangerous journey blindfolded.

Its seems to me, Malorie hasn't changed much since the events of the last book. She's still a really bad mother and kind of a "B", but she does love her kids and only wants to keep them safe. Her motives are only to keep them safe, but Tom is strong willed and has lived his whole life under a blindfold. Kind of reminds me of his mom.

Toward the end of the book, some of the things about the aliens are explained. I can't go into much detail without spoiling the plot, but I feel more satisfied with this ending than I did with the last book. It really rounded out the plot.

I was thoroughly entertained and hope this book is made into a movie someday too.
