Tell us about yourself! 70 yrs old, retired my son introd. me to audible and Im thrilled. Now live in small town in Kansas.
Enjoyed the plot and the gathering. The recordings that were taged on the end were hokie. I'll wait to read the next two and how many books will it take to end the story? I'll see if there is another book #6 the reviews on book 5's ending are not encouraging. If that is the last book in the series I'll stop now
The story starts off right where the last one ended. Thankfully nothing was left out. I loved the addition of new characters and guard members. The Moag leader is a real coward. I think he knows he will not win the war so he, in my opinion, cheats. The guards final decision to regroup is smart. The narrators are brilliant and I'm glad make doesn't have to read all of the girls parts and visa versa. Great job! Now on to the next one!
Someone who is okay with (nearly) all the minor characters being killed off.
Followed a path in which all/most of the minor characters don't die. Every scene in which someone might die, it was easy to say, "Well, guess it will be whoever isn't part of the guard." It made it feel like the first few books were all about getting the guard together while also killing off all the cepans.
Yes, voice changes made it very easy to know which character was speaking.
It had its bright moments, for sure, and the overall idea is a good one, but individual scene execution and some piece of plot just don't fit. They break away from the rules of the established story-universe.
And what's up with the story title? In which way does nine "rise"? The more I read in the series, the more I thought, "That doesn't really make sense. So, did the authors just choose it because it sounds cool, regardless of how it fit within the story?"
The story itself seemed lost until the end. The characters were either whining or too full of bravado to be sympathetic. It pulled itself together in the end
Performance was good...the different voices the narrators use for the different characters keeps you in the story and able to follow along.
Entertaining, interesting, engaging
my favorite character was Ella. Even though she is just being introduced I found her character interesting and wanted to follow her growth.
I did enjoy this book but the characters sometimes took a long time to recognize the obvious. Even allowing for the age of the characters it sometimes seemed ridiculous that they did not see things in front of them.
It didn't have the same feel to it like the other books ive read from this author
Given more insight to what goes on in the future like the other books
