Good for all age

This audiobook is good for all age, you know this is something that we can only say for a very few books and this audiobook is one among them, just like Harry potter or the Lords of the rings, people from all ages can like the story and the big magic vs machine world that the author Jacob Israel Grey has developed through his words and is constantly evolving throughout the series, the series is entertaining while sometimes making people feel for the characters as well, the characters of Jono, Keiko and Grail are evolving out to be more entertaining as the series continues.

Science Vs Magic story

This is a story of Science vs Magic, or night vs day, it is an amazing story with an awesome imaginary world just like The Lords of the Rings, many times when listening to this audiobook I could not stop comparing it with the magic world of The Lords of the Rings, this audio book has impressed me a lot.

Not just for kids

This series continues with another great story. In fact, this one seemed to be done even faster than the first one, and I didn't have any of those small frustrations with pacing in the first book. The world feels full and rich, and characters have depth. In several ways, this book seemed to channel some elements of a certain wizard with a lightning-bolt scar on his forehead. I don't mean to imply anything negative or any suggestion this work isn't original, because it certainly feels original to me. I just mean our MC is a boy who has saved the world, but life circumstances still leaving him feeling left out, unappreciated, and bullied while still having school as the haven he remains even on holiday breaks. There's much to major characters that allow us to become emotionally invested in them. Well done.

Narration was awesome again. Absolutely no complaints. Good selection of voices and good energy/emotion in the performance. Narration definitely adds to the experience.

I was given a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this honest review.

Enjoyed

I really enjoyed the 1st audio book and was hesitant on getting the second, as I usually find second installments of trilogy books to be the weakest. However, I enjoyed the character building and expansion of the world of Dark and Day in this books as much, if not more than the first one. And kudos to the narrator as well.

Well researched and written

This book is so well researched and written, it was hard to get out of the car sometimes. The characters were portrayed with tenderness and depth and I was easily brought into their stories. I am grateful for having gotten it on audible, as the narrators enunciation and accent leant so much to the story.
