1 in a million

This book introduces more characters to the story line and expands the story making it a better over all series I am hoping for much much more

If You Skip This - You Will Regret Your Decision

Usually when an author completely changes protagonists in the middle of a series the decision is a poor choice. Not so with this book. It's a nice change of pace.

This book explores the lives of the 2 kids that were locked in those cells at the end of book 5. There's a bit of crossover in the middle of the book when Chris comes to save his goddaughter.

The writing and story are solid as always. In fact, I'd say this book is on par with the first couple of books of the series.

DO NOT SKIP THIS BOOK BASED UPON OTHER REVIEWS

Back to High School!

I've enjoyed the previous books in this series. This one, however, was not the same at all. It follows High School students in their life, peer struggles, with some supernatural thrown in. There was, eventually, a little interaction with characters in the other books. I struggled to get through it even though I could see where it would intersect with the story line, but, I was very disappointed overall. I hope the next book goes back to the main plot and people.

Great so far

I was a little confused with this book, I don't know why I thought this was about Chris for at least a quarter of the way through the book. It was entertaining but it wasn't matching up with what I knew.

I should have read some of the comments before starting this book so I could put it into context. So yah! This is about Declan and Caeco which were the two kids Chris saved in the last book during Toni's rescue.

You could see a LOT of parallels between Declan and Chris, both were trying to hide themselves stay out of the spot light, both extremely powerful. Not on Chris's level yet but still lots of potential.

Very entertaining.

I hope this stops.

What would have made Executable better?

I may be in a minority but I do not like shifts in focus like this. I skipped 4.5 for this very reason. I enjoy how Chris handles each situation and his relationship with Tanya.

Any additional comments?

If you want to learn more about supporting characters or periphery then read 4.5 and this book. If you just want to continue Chris's story move on to the next book.

A great spinoff!

What made the experience of listening to Executable the most enjoyable?

Same universe, but different characters. I like the overlap and the fresh perspective that this book gives of the world, but it still feels like the other novels.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Declan was the kind of character that I can relate to. He is a total techie.

What about James Patrick Cronin’s performance did you like?

Sometimes I had to remind myself that it is a dude who is narrating the Irish girls' accents.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I got the "Marathoner" badge on this book because every few minutes game me a question that I needed answered.

Any additional comments?

It was great the second time through as well!

I love this never ending expandable storyline! Always looks like you are having a little bit more time to get ready for the next character

great New sub plot

Love the new storyline that runs parallel to Chris and Tanya. what a great idea to expand on the organizations working against supernaturals and bring in other teams for good.

I enjoyed this story, but...

I prefer a straight story, so this segue into a different story was not appreciated, at the time. However, as I got into the story, I enjoyed it, especially the ending.

Not sure why the author decided to go this way, maybe he lost some ideas. One thing I didn't care for was the author starting to place more emphasis on sex. Adds nothing to the story.

The narrator wasn't as good changing his voice between Chris and Declan!

Dreadful Irish accents

I love this series. Unfortunately this book is oversupplied with that dubious Irish accent that only Americans seem to use. At one stage the 19 year old Galway girl's accent seem to drift towards England and London. Kind of ruined for me. Since I'm actually Irish that crappy pseudo accent always annoys me.

Cockney isn't Irish!

Why did the accent for the 4 Irish sisters keep drifting into an awful Dick Van Dyke mockney accent? I don't think you can be more offensive to Irish people if you tried.

Good story, but patronising towards the Irish

The story is pretty good, but the Irish characters speak in a dialogue last seen in 1970s clichéd American Irish cop dramas. Only falling a little short of shouting "Begorrah!".

The narrator also has some issues with the Irish accent, ranging from a phoney American Oirish accent to something so god awful it verges on Dick Van Dykes fake Cockney accent in Mary Poppins. Cockney is a London East End dialect, so has no relation to Irish.

Overall, these things work to distract from what is otherwise an enjoyable enough introduction to some new characters.

Enjoyed

So I like the series. The introduction of the younger characters I’m not sure about but I’m keen to see how that developed. So the Irish accent I can see what the other reviewers mean but honestly you get into it and it doesn’t detract from the story and I love Cronies laid back reading style.

Okay once it gets going but not half as smoothly written or read as the rest of the series

It takes a lot of work to get going. Plus its a bit of a surprise that it isn't an obvious follow on. Could have used a paragraph to orientate it within the series for the reader. I looked up to confirm it really was part of the series before persevering. I was thinking, 'Where are the usual characters?' You do reach them eventually. Feels like the start of a teen off shoot series. On a side, I hated the narrator's Irish accents, painful, and as for the young Irish girl who slips from Irish to cockney on a whim - made me shudder.
But it was okay.

AMAZING !

At first , I couldn't tolerate not following up my usual heroes ( Chris & Tania ) . But John Conroe amazingly made me addicted to these 2 new heroes and widen the coveted family .
Narration by J. Cronin only made it more amazing , couldn't have it any better . Thank you
