Good story but no real pop, excitement or action. Light on the intrigue and have on technical but it kept me hanging on till the end. I don’t know if I stayed with it because I truly enjoyed it or because I was waiting and hoping for the action to begin.
This is one of those SiFi books that will keep you engaged and rooting for the main characters to succeed. The author did a really good job a building characters and the new world they have come to live on. He makes you hate the aliens that the humans have to face and feel for them in having to also deal with the uninhabitable conditions of the planet.
The only problem with this audio book is the reader! He reads like a 4th grader. At times in the story I could almost see him pointing at the words as he read. It was awful, throughout the book I had to reorganize what he said in my head just to keep the context of the conversations. So with that said would I recommend this audio book? If you have the tolerance of listening to a fourth grader read then YES, if not then I suggest you pick up the book and read it for yourself. I only endured to the end because I used a credit on it and it is a good book.
I found this to be a very good book. The story keeps you going and makes it hard to turn it off. I like the characters and the way the writer built each of them. I came to know each of them as the reader brought each of them to life. This book is well worth the price and credit.
This book was well worth the credit. if you are looking for a good fantasy book this one is it. It' funny, exciting, has great characters and full of adventure. A big thumbs UP to Nick Sullivan for bringing this sorry to life.
I, have been hooked on the Safehold series sense the first book. It sometimes gets overly detailed, but that's what makes the stories so good. I also liked the reader in the first 4 books, but this reader is not very good. He sounds to old for the characters, and he reads too slow. I had to increase the read speed just to tolerate it.
If you had used the first reader or at the every least a younger one.
I just don???t like 1 sided stories. This book has no depth it is told from the point of view of the Hero and no other.
I must say that this was an ok story, but I wouldn't consider it a true part of the "Legacy of the Aldenata" series. It only makes references to the characters and species in the pervious books. I think it could have just been written and published as a stand alone book. I believe "The Tuloriad" is better to be book 5 for this series. This book had no transition from "Hell's Faire". Throughout the entire book we are waiting for that link, It never comes!
