I love Zombie novels.The best part of the book was the reader. He actually tried to bring this book out from the shallow end of the pool. The overall story was weak and predictable. How I judge weakness in writing really has to to with the overuse of the f-bomb followed by other colorful language. I don't consider myself a prude but come on, what educated person talks like that? I had to get out my ear bud and take this one off the speakers in my home because I was embarrassed by the language and the writing. This one was phoned in. There are so many places that this one could have gone. But the author just decided to shoot this one in the foot and try to run a marathon on it. I want my money and the time I wasted listening to this back.... with damages.
I will be looking forward to reading the next book. As a fan of Honor Harrington, I think the series has promise.
This is the start of a great series. Somewhat slow but it picks up and pulls strong.
If you like cyber steampunk, Girl Genius etc then this is a series you will enjoy. The author has a great sense of where to draw the line to keep the story believable and the characters fresh. It was a dose of relief to a genre that had been suffering as of late with the lame. This book is not that way. Very well written I will be getting the others.
Just when you think you have a handle on what is going on.... you don't. No one understands Geary. Not the alliance... not the syndicate.
I liked it. It has moments that lag... but overall it is a good listen.
I really wanted this to work.... I listened all the way through.... It was just too drawn out....
It was all I wanted in a Dresden Book! Well worth the wait. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Need more quickly!
It has great character development and a strong story. No complaints. You really get to know these people on a personal level without the drag that comes from too much information.
I loved the book. It was quick, witty, and has that dash of snark sarcasm I look for in the protagonist. Great Contemporary Fantasy!
She lets you into her world like you are standing right beside her as she witnesses and takes part in critical decisions. She takes you from the extreme highs to the gutter scraping lows. She makes you want to shout for joy and then take shelter from friendly fire. Amazing.
