I was really looking forward to this book after the debacle of the last one but this one is even worse. As bad as the last one was at least it had some action throughout. Part of the charm that captured originally me was Betsy's dtizeness (I know that's not a word). She would lose focus and go off topic. It was fun. In this book it went way to far. It seems like the author didn't have enough content for a full book so she had to add more and more nonsense dialogue. It would have been better if the author and publisher would just have said "this is mini book in the series and charged half-price" If they had done that and just cut in half the useless dialogue I would probably have given it at least 3 stars. I guess it's hard to keep it interesting after so many books. Maybe it's time to wrap the series up with one last book and go out with a good one. This one is just bad.
This is a great original super hero story concept. It's very light hearted in comparison to the seriousness of the "Reckoners" series, another great take on super heroes. The male narration is exceptional. The diversity of the heroes and villains is another plus. The story itself keeps your attention off of the many back story plot holes. In short, this book is fun. If you want something interesting to listen that is fun and has action this book will deliver for you.
This is a hard one to review without giving spoilers. It gets going immediately and pulls you into the chase at a good pace. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I think they should have given us more answers. ARGHH! I really want to comment on the end but I won't do it. This is definitely worth the credit or full price.
This is great read. It starts out kinda slow, but at less than 1/3 of the way in I couldn't turn it off. I'm a sucker for shows like Fringe, and the homage the author paid to Fringe immersed me even more in the story than I already was. Resist the temptation to skip ahead and find out what's going on. For me, the best part of the book was them solving the mystery step-by-step. Peter Cline is becoming one of my favorite authors.
Cant forget the narrator. It's the same guy that does the "Joe Ledger" Novels and he is good at his job.
This book was really good. I don't take the time to write reviews unless a book was really good or really bad. This one was fantastic. I can usually figure out the main twists in the stories, but not with this one. I'm really looking forward to the series. It is a new way to tell the Super Hero story. That in itself makes it worth a listen.
I've read a lot of horror, end of the world, zombie, vampire, etc.. and I can say that this trilogy was my favorite. Most of the time the books are great, but the endings are lackluster. This ended perfectly. It's not a fairy book ending, it's a fitting ending. And it does end. There are no hanging threads. We find out everything.
This is not a stand alone read. You have to read all three books to get the full appreciation. I can't wait to see what this author does next.
The 2nd book was ok, but not anywhere as good as the first. This one comes closer to reaching the level of the 1st book.
