Publisher's Summary

From the Author of The Guild of the Cowry Catchers:

While the crew of the Scarlet Albatross struggles to survive her harrowing voyage, Gerard is busy keeping his promise to his father. He and Silveo return to Holovarus for a brief farewell visit. However, chaos is threatening to overwhelm the Great Islands, and even little Holovarus will not be spared. Gerard's father and brother are facing difficult decisions, and they need help. Gerard feels torn between his old kingdom and his new family.

The situation only grows more complicated when the crew of the Scarlet Albatross limps into port, bringing old enemies and a child Silveo didn't know existed. Jager Thunder is a sequel to both The Scarlet Albatross and The Guild of the Cowry Catchers sagas.

    "Another World Building Epic Story"

    Wow! First I want to mention Abigal Hilton was my first fantasy author to listen to on audio . Initially I chose "The Guild of the Cowry Catchers: A Story of Pirates and Panamindorah", Complete 5-Book Series. The audio production and world building was unlike anything I had read. Ms Hilton has become one of my favorite authors.
    Jager Thunder: A Story of Black Powder and Panamindorah: Refugees Volume 2 , is the second book towards this epic story. The story brings Volume 1: The Scarlet Albatross and The Guild of the Cowry Catchers together, introducing additional information about the characters and how their interests and experiences emerge to make this series successful. The story consists of airships, ships, castles, kings, and lords. The epic story reintroduces the characters from Cowry Catchers and the problems their kingdom are experiencing. Once this is established, Part 2 introduces how an airship may be able to assist in the rising unrest. From this point the story explodes with continuous challenges and strong relationships. Jager Thunder offers unpredictable results throughout the story. I highly recommend this book.
    Rish Outfield and Lauren Harris are excellent narrators.

    I can tell you I only stopped listening just to sleep the book is fantastic the world is just so real the characters are not just characters but seem so real you have brought them to life, the story line flows but surprises you at most every turn I truly can not wait to see the next episode of their lives as there are so many possibilities and directions I can see three and possibly four in my own mind ... Well I've got to go back in for a second listen in case I missed something...

    "Panamendorah keeps getting better"

    The latest Panamendorah story from Abigail Hilton is the best yet. The characters from The Scarlet Albatross (Refugees 1) finally meet up with the heroes of Guild of the Cowery Catchers, with explosive results. Many mysteries are answered and many more are posed. If you are a fan of Abi's stories, you probably already have this book. If not, this is probably not the best starting point, but when you reach this volume, you're welcome.

    The narration is split between Lauren Harris and Rish Outfield. They trade of depending on who the POV character for the chapter is. It's a fairly unique approach and once the listener get used to it, it works very well. Rish is an amazingly versatile voice actor whose Norm Sherman impersonation is almost eerie. Lauren is a master of accents and gives each character a distinctive voice. Together they really bring Abi's cast to life.

    Story
    "More swashbuckling and not just with weapons"

    Abby has successfully captured my attention yet again with this even paced return to the cowry catcher universe .
    This story takes place at the turning of an age and there are enough elements ease that baton pass . Initially I was and sorta still am worried about what this change will mean for the feel of this adventure on the high seas that I have come to love but by the end you should feel excited to see .
    This is queer positive series of books so if you are queer like me or just want more diversity in novels I'd invite you to check the whole series out .
    The story is solid but raises some questions about how time is linked in the world ( prophet ) sorta lays he ground work for jager thunder in a cool way .
    Abby continues to weave through multiple points of view and no one feels lost .

    The hardest thing for me were the voices of older characters, I know the full voice cast is a lot however I really think it would have made the story feel more like the next step and not so brand new , but overall it's not the biggest thing to get over .
    I can't wait for the next one

    Story
    "Enjoyed this sequel"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Jager Thunder: A Story of Black Powder and Panamindorah: Refugees, Volume 2 to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version of this book, but the audio version was great! I really enjoyed the performances of Rich Outfield and Lauren Harris. I really liked the way the narration switched between Rich and Lauren based on the point-of-view of the chapter.


    What other book might you compare Jager Thunder: A Story of Black Powder and Panamindorah: Refugees, Volume 2 to and why?

    This book is set in the author's Panamindorah world along with the Guild of the Cowry Catchers and The Scarlet Albatross, so those are the most immediate comparisons. I highly recommend you start with those books before listening to this sequel. As for what these books are most comparable to, I'd say that if you enjoyed Watership Down, the Jungle Book, or even The Secret of Nimh, then you would enjoy these books. In addition to talking animals, they have quite a bit of political intrigue and nautical adventures.


    Which character – as performed by Rish Outfield and Lauren Harris – was your favorite?

    Silveo is always a favorite.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A fallen prince, torn between his old kingdom and his new family.


    Any additional comments?

    A worthy sequel, and top-notch narration.

    Story
    "Great Continuation of The World of Panahmindorah"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Jager Thunder: A Story of Black Powder and Panamindorah: Refugees, Volume 2 to be better than the print version?

    The Audio Version is technically superior.... .If and Only If you were not spoiled by the full cast audio in Guild of the Cowry Catchers. As someone that has listened to the Guild of the Cowry Catchers more than 10 times without getting bored, the voices for each and every main character is Iconic. Hearing Gerard and Silveo in Jager Thunder.... It is missing the additional Charm of Norm Sherman's voice as Silveo and Nathan Lowell's deep but compassionate voice as Gerard... those are the voices I miss the most. Both narrators do a great job. I was admittedly taken aback by Gwain's voice which sounded very very close to the original.

    I did notice however that Anaroo, Cpt. Acklebee... and really most of the Scarlet Albatross cast set in this book voices sounded less like them. Or perhaps the VA for them tried some different techniques?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to choose honestly. I know all the cowry catcher characters so well it hurts to choose honestly. I appreciated Gerard's struggle the most however. The struggle between duty and happiness.


    Have you listened to any of Rish Outfield and Lauren Harris ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    See above in the initial Question


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

    Yes. But alas, I don't have time to sit for 17 to 18 hours in one spot.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend all of Abigail Hilton's Panahmindorah books as well as Hunters Unlucky. They are all available here on audio. The Guild of the Cowry Catchers is a full cast production that definitely benefited from being edited together from its original Podiobook status.

    Thank you for Writing the books Mrs. Hilton and thank you for having great friends and contacts to bring your characters to life past imagination.

    "My favorite fantasy author does it again! "

    Since first discovering Abby's spellbinding full cast Cowry Catchers I've devoured everything she's written. I've long waited for this and had the privilege of consuming some preview chapters she makes available to her Patreon subscribers. Thus was an instant buy for me as it continues the thrilling journey within the universe I love

    Both narrators are fantastic and unlike some authors, Abby chooses these folks carefully. If you've read Scarlet Albatross, this is a slam dunk purchase from an author who really cares for and is actively engaged with her readers.

    A rare talent creating amazing characters in a finally crafted universe brought to life by stellar narration

    " Disappointing - nothing like Cowry Catchers"

    I was expecting this book to be like the Cowry Catchers series which I have listened to several times. It has many of the same characters but unfortunately they are no longer fun and appear to have aged into middle aged sounding old men. How can this have happened within a couple of years. A lively narrator is essential for this type of book. Rish Outfield is an excellent narrator but not for this book. I am over half way through the book and really struggling. I will not be attempting the other book in the Refugee series. But if you struggle with sleep and use audio books to get you off to sleep at night then this is the one. Even the main narrator sounds like he's about to nod off. What a pity.
