I have to say that i'm supper happy with with this book... my inital thoughts were that book one was an great setup for great things to come.. so far book 2 has not been dissapointing... i'm looking forward to the third book!!!
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.
Learn, understand, then decide whether you accept or reject.
The main conflict of the saga continues to grow in scale, emotions are heightened, things look bleak and yet there are some great moments and twists along the way.
The characters are more fleshed out, and new interesting characters and variables are presented.
Everything is subjective.
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!
