Freed from the Red Box, William Thompson finds himself at the center of a geo-political conflict spawned from a secret history of scientific and militaristic operations, setting in motion a deadly chain of events that threatens the world.
I bought this book because I really liked the first one, only to be disappointed with a lackluster story about Chinese espionage and Russian spies. I struggled through the book only because I had nothing else to listen to.
The book finally picked up in the last couple hours, only to be dulled down by sub par narration.
If you are looking for a book similar to the first one, with supernatural events and a very well written story, you'll be disappointed. At least I was.

At first I wondered where the book would go once Will was out of the Redbox. The story took a pleasant turn and kept your interest all the way through. The main downfall is the book should have ended. The story does not need to be dragged on from here.
far surpassed how good I thought it was going to be and even better than the first which I really loved.

Was probably a decent story but the narration made it very difficult to listen to.
Following on from the original this is a truly gripping continuation of the Journey. The only slight negative I can give is the performance is somewhat robotic. Really looking forward to the third book in the series.
The story cuts off and the whole last chapter is an advert for the next book.
