Better each Book!!

Loving this series this story has been great. Cole is always a breath of fresh air as a smart witty MC. Favorite part of the book is the developments between and the hunter. The new was introduced in an awesome job especially one special little robot.

The only small nitpicks is sometimes Cole can be a little to absolute in his judgment of others. Also, some characters don't get enough dialogue for you to develop an attachment to them. I always felt like I'd want to know more about these new comers.

The persistent issue is the use application of Cole's power which they talk about as unique but it seems to be The Greatest considering the only way the writer keeps it in check is to write off as beyond Cole's reach until he writes a no way situation and Cole's power saves the day. I still think if they would have just make it develop with time (like the others that came to the outskirts) instead of the No Hope scenario It would give Cole and is readers a feeling of satisfaction for Cole's growth and accomplished coming accustomed to this new world.

Again that's just nitpicking overall it's still a awesome highly enjoyable series can't wait to finish Book 4

Very good story telling

This book, like the rest of the series, grabs you at the beginning and doesn't let go. This is my second time listening and it still holds up. My one criticism is that it gets a bit tedious whenever Cole is alone with his best friend Dalton, who is always trying to talk Cole into ditching everyone to save themselves. It happens every time they are alone in any of the 5 books.

Other than that, this is an amazingly good series with a very satisfying conclusion at the end of book 5, which is really rare.
