Publisher's Summary

The Limbus saga continues with five more stories of horror, science fiction, and fantasy from some of the industry's brightest stars - Jonathan Maberry, Seanan McGuire, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Laird Barron and David Liss.

Thomas Malone thought he'd seen it all during his 25 years in the Birmingham homicide division. But then they found the body of a woman suspended above the opening of the mineshaft known as the Vertical, blood dripping into the chasm below. At the bottom of that shaft, two clues - a typed manuscript and a business card, blank but for a name on the front and a single sentence on the back. Malone couldn't know that those two enigmatic items would lead him on a manhunt around the world, on the trail of a murderer and an organization of myth and legend. But he shouldn't have been surprised. The business card said it all. Limbus, Inc. How lucky do you feel?

Confusing tale or two

The very last story (barring the main story that continues throughout) was hard to follow in an audio format. I feel that the Jane/Mason/etc. Multiverse thing would have been easier to follow in print. I found myself rewinding and playing again many times during that tale.

Not that great...

I normally like the Limbus series, but this book was not particularly interesting. Most of the stories were difficult to follow and after the first couple, the narrator became distracting.

3rd time wasn't a charm...

A lackluster end to an otherwise great trilogy. The only stand out was Maberry's continued story of Sam the werewolf. That would be a great series in itself.

Wow, Not a Great Third Volume

The first two volume had good stories and decent narrations, not sure what happened to this one. The best story was Maberry’s, but even the best can be taken down by a slow, gravely, and unemotional narration. Hopefully, a number IV will come out and rub a new shine on the series.

Narrated by Eeyore

Unfortunately the narration- where every character sounded dumpy and slow took too much away from the stories. A few were really great, especially Jonathan Maberry- as usual. But the final one by Laird Barron was too disjointed and bizarre and didn’t end it in a satisfying way. I’ve enjoyed Barron’s stuff in the past- especially the Imago Sequence, but this was too similar and not in a good way. Just odd threads that never seem to come together, especially when the rest of the authors really seemed to do a good job of contributing something unique, but still cohesive to the theme. Like he had a “look at me!” compulsion over adding to this…..and seriously, who picked the narrator…

No spoilers

Decent narrator with the exception of pronunciation—place names are one thing to mis-pronounce (Bexar County), but simple Mexican foods? Carne Guisada is NOT gooey-say-da....

not bad but not the best

overall a good book, I think my only complaint is the performance could have been much better. I felt like the reader lacked a bit in his portrayal of some of the characters. I went most of a story not knowing the lead was a female.
