This can be summed up in one word, and that's excellent!! I pretty much loved everything about it, though thought it could of been longer. That's simp..Show More »ly because I didn't want it to end.
Candle is the MC and was such an easy character to like. He was easy to relate to and had a way of making it impossible not to root for him. I loved how cynical he was when he first meets Kareem because I think all of us would be. It made him more believable.
The plot was fast paced and well thought out. It grabbed me from the start and didn't let go. It's a short enough listen but it's not short on anything else. The attention to detail and the author's style of writing made this amazing and totally captivated me. It's packed with suspense, action, intrigue and was at times emotionally intense. Poor Candle!!!!
In all this is a must read and a series that has the potential to be amazing. I need book 2!!!
William Coon was fantastic. His pacing and tones were perfect. He told the story flawlessly and is definitely a narrator I need to check out.

Once again we find Candle in some trouble! After the events of the last book, all Candle wants to do is settle down and forget everything. His wife is..Show More » coming home and their baby is almost here. But it's Candle we are talking about!!! He always seems to fall into it unintentionally!!! When a letter from Kareem arrives telling Candle that he needs to save Kareems brother, he is ready to bin it, but it plays on his mind constantly. He ends up having to go to Texas anyway so decides to drop by and see this guy, what's the harm?? Right!! Wrong, Candle once again finds himself caught up in the action and on the run from some trigger happy people!
There isn't much more I can say about the plot because with it being such a short story, I'll inadvertently spoil something, so all I'll say is that we get a few answers, more questions, plenty of action and adventure, more characters, more twists and turns and pretty much more of everything in this one. It's a fast paced, intense and addictive read. I loved book 1 and am pretty much hooked with this edition.
The author has a way with his words that will immediately grab you and not let go. His characters are all well fleshed out and developed. Candle especially has grown a lot since the first one. He isn't as naive as he was and is becoming quite the hero. Heskett also manages to throw in unexpected moments that I never saw coming. This is a story, that once you start, you won't want to put it down. Also the ending!!! I totally need book 3 to see what happens next. It's a cliffhanger that has left me wanting much more!!
In all, this is an action packed sequel, and indeed, an action packed series. The authors style has gotten me curious about his other works. I can see him becoming a firm favourite!
William Coon was fantastic, again! He has a wide range of voices and gives each character their own. He really brought the book to life and I hope he is narrating book 3!!

I'm sad to see this end, but at least it ended with a bang!
Candle is back in the thick of things again but in this one, he finally gets som..Show More »e answers and some closure. Poor Candle, his life is one long battle with Intellicraft for the last few months. But thankfully he finally gets some answers, which are quite surprising!! All he wants is for his wife and unborn child too be safe but will he get that??
This book, and indeed, this series, was one heck of a rollercoaster ride. Each book has been action packed, but this one more so. We also finally get some answers and some things are wrapped up. Though there is a potential for another book in the series, the author says at the end of the book that Candle's story is finished, but there will be a prequel about Intellicraft. I can not wait to read that one!! I'll miss Candle but I do think his story is over.
In all, this series was amazing. All 3 books were a 5 star read for me and I'm so glad I found these. Candle was an amazing character and I'm excited to see what else the author can create. His writing has captivated me!!!
William Coon once again did an amazing job. He always captured the tenseness perfectly and made Candle his own. I will definitely be checking out more by him.
