Publisher's Summary

A couple of months have passed since the cyborg smuggler known as Salem led a small team in the violent coup that brought down Abraxas, demon Archduke of New Golgotha’s central kingdom of Ars Goetia. From the destruction, Salem became a hero, whether he wanted to be one or not, and was appointed the first human baron in the demon-run supercity.  

But Hell does not like being made to look foolish - or weak. And Salem’s actions, while noble, have consequences. A victory for man means a defeat for Hell. A single question will be asked of Salem: How far can a hero fall? The powers of Hell are willing to find out.  

Flotsam Prison Blues is the gritty, exciting sequel to To Beat The Devil. Following an assassination attempt by a rocket-launching madman, Salem must untangle a web of lies, theft, and conspiracies, lest his new world, and his citizens, burn. Follow Salem’s adventures as he is forced to relive the parts of his past he wanted to stay buried while once more pitting himself against the might of Hell. Salem will need all his strength and skill as he suffers the Hell-on-Earth horrors of Flotsam Prison.

Flotsam Prison Blues

Happy to report that there is not a second book in the series letdown. I love how trouble follows Salem and Grimm. Ricky "the puppeteer" continues to move his plan forward. I like the change in narrator. I enjoyed his performance very much. I received this audio book for free from the narrator for my unbiased review.

Excellent sequel! Love this series!

Flotsam Prison Blues
The Technomancer Novels Series, Book 2
By: M. K. Gibson
Narrated by: Jeffrey Kafer
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
First, read book one! It is so look worth it! This book will make more sense and it might accidentally have a spoiler.( little ones but all spoilers count) This series I just love! It has awesome fantasy, great well developed characters, snark, lots of humor, creative plot, strangeness (yes, this is good), creatures of all kinds, and a kick ass team. Sure I could tell you about the golems, demons, and battles but it isn't the same as listen to it from the awesome narrator that performs this book. The narrator is super awesome! You would think there are giant flesh golems, demons, and other creatures on loan to the studio! Great job! Can't wait for the next book!

Mr. Rictus got quality Shadowmaster Consultation

Or is Rictus actually the Shadowmaster stuck on another s&@$hole world? Or is the Shadowmaster just one of his aspects? Or maybe they’re both being influenced by some lazy d-bag on the most boring world at the ass end of the multiverse who couldn’t come up with another set of characters so he just recycled the ones he already had. What I’m trying to say is that giving both series the same Narrator made it so I couldn’t stop comparing and making connections between the series. Setting humanity up to clone Jesus causing the local god to abandon the world then manipulating the “heroes” into putting you into his place all while they’re in the dark about the true extent of your plans. Such a Shadowmaster thing to do. Keep it up!

Awesome sequel

FLOTSAM PRISON BLUES is an incredible second installment of the Technomancer series. Salem has run out of money, which he desperately needs to pay bribes with in order to keep his community of Viking descendants from being taken down by the world's demonic overlords.

This book gets a lot more into Salem's backstory and the history of the world, which works well in raising the stakes despite the humor. We also get a number of interesting new female characters. If you like the Dresden Files or Shadowrun then you'll probably love Flotsam Prison Blues.

Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job as the narrator.

Way Beyond Expectations

I'll try keep my review short.

First, have you read or listened to the first book, To Beat The Devil? No? Then what are you doing here? I implore you to do that first, then come back here!

This book, this series is one hell of a good time! Gibson is truely imaginative with a real talent for world building.

A note on the change in narrators: Shawn Purvis was missed. But I feel I need to stress this is solely due to his incredible performance with "To Beat The Devil," and not due to a lacking of Jeff Kafer's. It is a shame Purvis was not available, however Kafer is truely a professional that holds up his credibility.

The bottom line is that Gibson, and Kafer have kept me thoroughly entertained. I look forward to the next installment. If you are looking for an exciting fantasy series, this is it.

Flotsam Trash

Flotsam Trash is not me being snarky. I binged listened to this book and loved every minute of it. The script and narration synced perfectly. The first book introduced the world and the main character. The second book took that introduction and fleshed him out. Yes there is action, adventure, laughs, drama, character arcs, suspense and even a love story of sorts but the heart of the book is a deconstruction of the main character, who he is, was and a glimpse of what he will be. Trash is apt, because when everything taken from the character he forced to reflect on what got him and his world to this point which given the material is bleak but not depressing. Sure the main character not having a good time but you the listener will and for me at least that involved laughing a lot despite the darkness of the material.

Great book, read very well!

I cannot apologise enough for putting a bad review about the narration of the fist book of this series.
Jeffrey Kafer narrates this very well written story brilliantly and I am very excited for the next book in the series to come out on audible.
Unfortunately Audible does not let one edit reviews, I hope no harm was caused.
