I thought the first book was interesting and pretty good, but this one is excellent. The characters are quite compelling and the story takes great direction. By the end you can't wait to get into the 3rd and see what happens.
While a similar plot point is used the overall story and characters are different. This is a great second book of the trilogy and well worth the read, don't let concerns about it being a story you have heard before deter you.
This was a great listen, good story that shows in spots to explore the mental effects of living with choices made. It is a good blend of Russian literature and fantasy. Well worth the time and credit.
This was a really good book and well worth the time. The story and characters are well written. The ending left you with something to think about. If you're considering it, it's worth the credit.
If you liked the Grimoir Chronicals you'll really enjoy following a small adventure with Jake's son.
If you've listened to the Commonwealth and Void books already you have to listen to this. It's phenomenal.
If you've already listened to the last two books you already know you want to listen to this one. You definitely won't be disappointed.
If you are considering this book but have not listed to Lies, or Red Skies first, go start with Lies and you will not be disappointed either. These books are a joyride of excitement, humor, twists, turns and incredible characters. They are worth every minute of the listen.
What more can I say than I love this series. The writing is fantastic and the performance is perfect. The characters are deep and complex. The story is deep and complex with lots of action, twists and turns. The dialog is priceless and full of drama and humor is perfect measure.
For anyone on the fence, get Lies first then read this one. You won't be disappointed.
I've read a lot of reviews on this and had it in my wish list for quite a while. I went into it expecting a nice thriller/mystery type story and ended up with a horror story.
All in all it was pretty good. There was a lot of the SciFi parts that were a stretch and most of the characters were pretty typical. It's funny that the use Scooby Doo characters as references since the author keeps his characters lined out just about like a cartoon.
It was an entertaining listen and worth your time for a unique and entertaining story. Don't expect to get your mind blown, but you can expect to be entertained.
I've seen this series and reviews of it floating around for while now. I have been tempted to listen before but always decided against it.
I finally took the plunge and was pleasantly surprised. The story was solid even though the characters were predictable and pretty shallow. The action was excellent and I was well entertained the whole time.
This is a lot like watching a SciFi war movie, and was worth the time. I think I'll pick up the other books to listen to when I want something fun to listen to.
Be sure to read the first book first. Then buckle in and enjoy the ride. This book moves a lot quicker than the first is a real joy to experience. That's right, not listen to or read, but it's a book that you experience.
There is quite a bit of back story and history building slipped into the rest of the story that I'm sure will all pull together in later books, so keep an open mind through those parts and just absorb it for future use.
This is well worth the money and time to enjoy.
