    After Worlds Collide picks up the story of its predecessor When Worlds Collide. This sequel tells the story of the survivors' progress on the new world Bronson Beta after the destruction of planet Earth by a rogue planet.

    Story

    The problem I had with this second book is twofold. The main problem is that towards the end of the book the author(s) lost interest in writing about the subject. That gave the book a feeling like it was rushing towards the end. Another problem I had with the book was the somewhat silly axis vs allies slant on the story. Maybe it's got to do with the years having passed between writing the book and reading it today, but it annoyed me quite a bit.

    The writing at times seems to be a bit arkward at times, too often the author explains things that need not be explained. It's almost as if he assumes the reader is suffering from a short-term memory loss problem.

    The voice of the narrator went well with the very often pompous writing, but I doubt I would like to listen to this narrator's other work.

    It is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces, some familiar, others only just appearing, are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

    Jorge says: "New is not always better..."
    "Horrible"
    Overall

    I really was looking forward to this last book in the series, and then I found out that the narrator had been changed so that now we're stuck with a man whose voice must be a serious threath to the producers of barbiturates.

    What happened to Roy Dotrice?
