If the author had brought the same freshness that the first book had.
Not at all
It was kind of disappointing, the whole concept of the other realms. It could've been carried off in a more believable manner.
I do like what Twelve Hawks has said with this series.
A poor ending to what was, until this book, an excellent trilogy. I found the God level to be lazy and uninspiring. This book was so disappointing because the first two books are truly amazing.
I read the review by Brad and they echo my sentiments. I too am looking for the 4th book. This ws a great story and a lot of fun The characters have been so well developed and the story can continue!!
So that was a great 3rd book, but my question is when is the 4th one coming out? I am going to be pissed if that is the last book! You need to have a real ending not one that leads into something else but nothing ever comes!! I really liked the body of the story but the ending was disappointing.
The first 80% of the book I enjoyed, and Scott Brick once again does a fantastic job narrating. I just can't seem to wrap my head around the final stages of the book. It seemed to come to a rather abrupt ending, as if John Twelve Hawks decided he had better things to do.
The author does a great job of blending fantasy and reality in this series. I've read all three of them and found them to be a solid example of modern science-fiction-- the trilogy shows the consequences of where technology can take our society. I also enjoyed the "traveling."
The narrator was okay, but his accent for the African-American characters were terrible. Comically terrible, as if he's never met one in real life.
I do think the series could use a bit of an edit, in terms of repetition, but I still enjoyed the book.
The different character voices of Scott Brick.
Loved listening to him and the different voices he was able to create.
Possibly you hear differenent things the second time
Gabriel and Myia equally
This is a trilogy yet it seemed as if there should be a sequel. Great books though!
....and what I wanted to say....I have to admit that I'm one that doesn't like to go with the flow on writing reviews......but with this book.......I'm sided with the majority of the readers.
The first two books were good and I liked the second one better because I felt that the main characters had finally come into their game and it was fun to watch them choose their paths and what the outcome would be in each case.
As for this book.....everything was just too easy and simple for them......they struggle and fight and fret about each episode in their travels in the earlier books and then during the third book they just slide into home base without any trouble at all....that tells me that the author was just getting by.....finishing up the book to make his commitment to the publisher. This was really a bummer because it made the book a bit blah and dull. I felt the characters all just ran to the finish line with no pit stops to add some very much needed action and then let's end it on a 'it's a beautiful world and all is right with us' type ending.
I'm not sure I feel cheated but I do know I really was expecting much more from this 3rd book....and it just wasn't there....
I really liked John Twelve Hawks first book. It was original and pretty exciting. The second and third book fell flat for me. I felt like the author introduced the idea of different realms and than barely explored that plot line.
