I can't wait for the sequel!

Would you consider the audio edition of Future Winds to be better than the print version?

I don't see how one edition could be better than the other.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Aisha because she's a badass!

Have you listened to any of Tia Sorensen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not, but I am interested.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending was pretty fantastic!

Any additional comments?

I've got no more words. Just going to patiently wait for the sequel!

Splendid Sci-fi gore

Future Winds is a well-written, gore filled adventure. The narrative examines humanities innate lead and follow architecture. Characters were easy to relate to, even as the collapsing infrastructure forced brutal choices. I was however, left with many questions and hoping for a sequel.

Disappointing/Rushed

I normally don't give bad reviews. However, all the reviews I read on this book were stellar and I found this book no where close.

The Good: I really liked the character development, would love to get to know some of the characters more - both the native planet characters and the human colonists. The overall story had a lot of potential.

The Bad: it felt rushed and should have been a trilogy or more. Ever watch a movie or have someone tell you a book summary from a high level and you can tell it should be great, but all the beauty was left in the mind of the director or story teller? That is this book. I can tell the author had an amazing world and story in his mind, it just fell flat. The story builds up lots of interesting plot lines that just go away. I understand the overall messages, key points, an impact to the message, etc I just felt there was too many pieces built up that have little reason to be there other than filler.
