I love the imagination and how the writer spins out his tale. Like strands of the fizzem, he weaves persons and events to one mighty epic.
If you have ever listened to an abridgement and wondered what they did with all the parts they left out, this will clarify things for you. This book is comes off like all the left over parts from the first book. It's not much fun listening to the same story over again. The only thing that keeps me from giving this one star is the fact that it is my own fault for expecting this this to be a "book 2". If I had paid atention I would have realized that this is actually just "book 1 revisited".
Kevin J. Anderson is doing an excellent job with this series! The action and adventure continues "page" after "page" and does not slow down! The fourth book was published in June 2005, I hope Audible gets it soon! If you like Sci-Fi, you will really enjoy this one - and the rest in the series.
I am a student currently near Dallas, TX, studying for Physics. I thoroughly enjoy a good sci-fi listen, as well as any scientific material here on Audible. Let the listening... BEGIN!
I've loved the Saga of Seven Suns since book 1. This one is no different. Guidall gives a magical performance, and the story pulls you in and keeps you wanting more by the time it is over. I remember yelling "No!" in my car when the conclusion script started playing. Luckily, I believe there are 5 more books left, so I will be OK for a while.
Start at book 1!
