Really enjoyed the book; interesting slant on how evil entered the world in a real way; interesting story of redemption from past mistakes; good narration as well
fast action. exciting. well researched. accurate tech. believable. consistent plot. thought provoking. great character development but not overdone. nothing to skip over in this book.
The narration was great. The plot was ridiculous unless the message was "no matter how hard one tries to be good, evil will triumph." Author managed to put down all religious beliefs, atheism, love, motherhood and politics as having value. It is the kind of story that critics praise so often in fear of thinking they might have missed something deep and meaningful. If you like Gore, enjoy.
In my opinion:
This story is not lacking in anyway , in any genre.
This is one of the very, very few books that has interfered with me sleeping. Not saying it's given me nightmares (I've not found one that good, lol), but it had everything a really good thriller/horror should have.
A good story line, good characters, a bit of gore, a bit of suspense and toppped with a bit of humor.
The narrater did a great job giving each character a different voice. I'd listen to him narrate again.
Well worth the time. :-D
It took me a minute to get with the story being read by the narrator because I had listened to him on another series and I kept losing the story. 30 minutes in I was totally in it. This was a nice bit of fiction fantasy.
It was exciting creative And all-around creepy and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing . Luke Daniels did an excellent job , and Bub sounded terrifying the book throws a lot of questions that you and me use it to your imagination on certain things which is nice if you're looking for a good scary adventure this is your book
The story starts with a very interesting premise for a villain, then botches it with a bunch of horror tropes. Oh, look, the characters have deep personal flaws that the big bad exploits. And then they get opportunities to redeem themselves. Big surprise too that the antagonist is also very difficult to kill with certainty.
The author obviously tried to include interesting science, but as a biologist I can say the science is pretty awful--especially the genetics. The one scientist also is a ridiculous stereotype.
The one redeeming quality is that Luke Daniels does an excellent job narrating, with distinct voices for each character.
