It's a fairly interesting alternate history story. It has some interesting themes and ideas but doesn't explore them in any depth. The two main characters are pretty basic and flat. I love this time. And I'm really interested in alternate versions of it if only the story was a little bit better and a little more original it would be much better.
The first 3rd of this story is awesome. After that its still good, but not nearly as intense.
I am a big fan of the Final Empire Trilogy, this is a continuation but taking place far into the future. But it is a great listen. It is a good old fashioned cat and mouse chase western, but with allomancy.
The trilogy wraps up in an exciting and epic conclusion. All of the questions are answered. I think that the ending was a bit rushed (that is my continuing critique of Larry Correia's work), but very satisfying.
I just love Larry Correia's work, his books are just so dang fun. You can feel his love for the story, and his desire to just give you a dang good time.
Didn't finish listening to the book, just picked it up because it was free, so....
The action and intrigue just keeps building throughout the story, and when I think it can't build anymore it just keeps on going.
This was an incredibly fun listen. I was not expecting it to deal with such deep themes, but it does it very well. It balances action and intrigue brilliantly. Well worth the listen.
I liked the idea behind the magic, and the setting was really interesting. But the ending didn't quite work for me. I didn't like the narrator so much either. His voice for the main character sounded too much like Forest Gump.
This was really good. But it wasn't able to match the "epicness" of the second book. Also some of the characters i really enjoyed from the 3rd book were underused. I felt that the ending felt really rushed. I don't really understand why each book in the series is getting shorter and shorter.
