Kip stresses me out!!

This book is completely awesome, I love how the narrator pumps you up as the story and the action goes on and it's not just robotic reading. His voice acting capabilities are superb

Ypsilon really doesn’t like that word...

Yes!

It was awesome to rejoin Kip, Adal, and Arija in a new adventure! The last was steampunk. This time, they enter a new world of cyberpunk and team up with a fantastic grinder named Ypsilon (pronounced ip-sill-on) in a world where the ‘criminals’ are the good guys and people in charge are pure evil.

If you’re a fan of snark and characters that feel real, this book is for you. The characters are well fleshed out and the world is fascinating. I loved that we get some much loved characters in a brand new setting. Lots of fun to be had!

The Hall of Doors books can be read out of order, but I’d definitely recommended reading Webley and the World Machine first to really appreciate Kip and the Grinders!

Audio review:

This was a return from the narrator of Webley and the World Machine. I still love how he handles all the male voices, from Kip to Maza. I loved that Al’s voice had the same timber as Webley, but had a different accent.

He still tries to go a bit high for the girls, which as style choice I don’t love, but can still respect.

Kip in trouble AGAIN!

A great book with wonderful characters and great world building!

This book picks up where the first, "Webley and the World Machine", left off, but it could be read as a standalone. Kip, the "robot boy" from "Webley", has opened a door in the Hall of Doors and literally dropped in on a young woman named Ypsilon. This new world of Taraveil is full of groups of people called Grinders and Ypsilon is one badass in her group, the Engineers.

Our friends from "Webley", Adal and Arija, have followed Kip to rescue him, but are immediately mistaken for Grinders. Trouble ensues (of course!) and the fun begins! Tons of action, great descriptions of another world, and some moments of tenderness are all found in this book. This book is almost like playing a video game, with cool action, great world building and kickass characters.

Of course, there is plenty of snark from the author, which just adds to the appeal of this book and the whole series. The narrator, Mike Sanders, does an amazing job and his voices for the various characters are perfect. His performance adds a lot to the reader's enjoyment. Even though I had previously read the ebook version of this book, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Mr. Sanders' performance.

If you love cyberpunk and just a good, fun read, grab this book and go! I can't wait to see what Mr. Chopchinski has in store for the next adventure!

Loved the snark

Snarky and fun, this book was great entertainment. While it is a Hall of Doors book, you do not have to have read or listened to book 1, this is complete on its on. The narrator has a nice soothing voice that doesn’t grate on my nerves and his rate of speech isn’t so slow that I have to speed it up like some other narrators.

Brilliant!

The sequel to ‘Webley and the World Machine’ in Zachary Chopchinski's Hall of Doors Steampunk adventure series  is an action-packed, highly entertaining adventure story that features Adal, Arija and their friend Kip, a Dweller of Webley's World Machine. 

This story is set in Taraveil, another of the worlds that lie beyond the doors in Webley's Hall of Doors. Once again, Chopchinski's world building is complex and detailed, full of fascinating technology and diverse, colourful characters. Rich sensory detail adds texture and dimension to the various settings and environments in the book, complementing the action, characters and complications of the story.

Snarky and confident, Adal and Arija meet their matches in Ypsilon and her Grinder compatriots. Through conflict, danger and the formation of unlikely alliances, the integrity and loyalty of each of the central characters is tested as the story progresses.
Just like Adal and Arija, Ypsilon, Sasha, Van and Masa are characters that young adult readers will relate to. They are strong and flawed, passionate and vulnerable, smart mouthed and profoundly loyal to their own.

Chopchinski's writing is edgy and descriptive, in keeping with the story and the world in which it is set. The story moves at a good pace, keeping the reader and their imagination fully engaged.

'Kip and the Grinders' is fast paced, distinctly original steampunk fiction that demands to be finished once started.
