The basis of two bestselling computer games Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light, the Metro books have put Dmitry Glukhovsky in the vanguard of Russian speculative fiction alongside the creator of Night Watch, Sergei Lukyanenko.
A year after the events of METRO 2033 the last few survivors of the apocalypse, surrounded by mutants and monsters, face a terrifying new danger as they hang on for survival in the tunnels of the Moscow Metro.
Featuring blistering action, vivid and tough characters, claustrophobic tension and dark satire the Metro books have become bestsellers across Europe.

I was really disappointed with this book, so much so that I think this is the first 1 star rating I've given.
After the first book, I was excited to get going on number 2, but the story just felt more of the same and offered nothing new.
The characters were crap, the story was crap (as nothing really happened) and the ending was really crap. I've already bought the 3rd book in the series, but I'm regretting that now as I doubt I'll read it.
