Publisher's Summary

Saved from death at the hands of the Emperor Ddwng, would-be lovers Colene and Darius and their companions - Provos, a woman who remembers only the future, and Sequiro, a telepathic horse - stumble into yet another dangerous reality where despots rule with a cruel and heavy hand.

Held captive, the friends must combine their unusual talents in a daring escape that leads them on adventure after adventure with the most intriguing characters - some threatening, some friendly - ever to grace the page or the earbud.

Among them are Angus, the adorable flying giant; Nona, the lovely and magical "ninth of the ninth"; Slick, the gangster with a death sentence; and the megaplayers, mysterious musicians of old whose giant instruments still dot the landscape.

Critic Reviews

"The author's protagonists are as ingenuous as ever....His enthusiasm for new ideas...is infectious, and his imagination shows no signs of wear." (Library Journal)

Modern syfy with traditional scifi roots.

If you.are bright enough to enjoy the creation of.a wholly different universe, and educated enough to appreciate its story telling roots and modern adult themes, you will love Anthony's Mode series. Read it slowly to.get every reference and nuance.

Finally a Story!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, It's a very good listen.

What did you like best about this story?

The writer greatly expands Colenes character. The subject matter is simply fascinating and well developed explanations for those unfamiliar with fractals. The other main character, Darius,remains virtually undeveloped and we know little more about him than he is a guy from another dimension (mode) . Still I would recommend this book as very entertaining.<br/>Nothings perfect.

Which character – as performed by Mark Winston – was your favorite?

The horse.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

Any additional comments?

It's worth reading and well worth the listen, but not in one sitting. There are too many facts to absorb and enjoy!
