Frightening or Intense Scenes: It's a book about the end of the world wiped out by a virus with desperate humans and apes. So... yeah. It's going to be a tad scary to some.

Sexual Content: The book fades to black at a few points and does not go into details about the actions. Though there are a few occasions where it's heavily implied what's happened and uses some language. Nothing bad.

Violence: There are many depictions of violence. Though the book doesn't venture into gory details, you'll read about people getting shot, burned, or bleeding and dying.

A good "mid-quel" novelization of events before "Dawn of.." . It would've made an okay adaptation imo.

Starts off hardly a week after the first movie with Caesar still trying to get a hang of evasion strategies and gathering food. There's a big focus on Koba and flashbacks to his past.

Different humans are highlighted including Gary Oldman's,Dreyfus character but the main focus is on a ex-mercenary and primatologist.

Both connect while being suspicious of what the security contractor has pulled them into (a mission to find the escaped apes) all the while being out of the loop most of the time as human society quickly deteriorates.
