Nice Conclusion To "THE ROCK STAR CHRONICLES"

In the sequel to DARKSTAR, Ev and Karen's saga continues but much of the story is about their nephew Wesley. Wes has many problems~his parents, drugs, and even mobsters. Like the previous story, this too has a Christian theme~thoroughly enjoyed listening.

Audiobook provided for an honest review.

Good second book in the series

Is there anything you would change about this book?

As genres go this is not one that is for me. That is not the books fault, it is mine fore jumping out of my usual reading box. However, fans of Christian reads will eat this up with a spoon!

If you’ve listened to books by Creston Mapes before, how does this one compare?

It is very similar to the first book in the series in that there is a lot of Christian content. It is even more here because Lester is now looking to testify. It is deep and makes you think. I am sure many will find it very inspirational.

What aspect of Troy Klein’s performance would you have changed?

I enjoyed his read for the most part, there were some weird pitch things he did that were annoying. I was also not a fan of his deep pauses between sentences. I was a fan of his rich tone and would be interested to hear more of his work. I will give him credit for staying consistent throughout the read.

Any additional comments?

Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts,opinions and ratings are my own.

It was okay.

I did really appreciate the Christian aspects of the book and wanted to like it a lot more but ended up just getting through it. I struggle with books where the plot depends on the stupidity of the protagonist. Bad luck I can accept, but when every shred of tension comes from yet another stupid decision I will eventually start rooting for the bad guys. This book didn't go that far, but Everett did make a number of decisions that no reasonable person would make. I also noticed a few things like a Honda becoming a Hyundai, a character pushing himself in a wheelchair only days after a severe injury that would have prevented that action, etc. So for me, two stars is "ok" three stars would be "good".

Enjoyed the story - narrator unable to voice many

Enjoyed the story - narrator unable to voice many of writer's expressions, etc. It was frustrating to hear because it was obvious how it was intended to be read, but narrator obviously was unable to say it that way. I don't get it ...
