Publisher's Summary

If you lost a piece of your memory...

Would you trust yourself to have made the right choices...

In the moments you can't remember.

The Ferox assault has been escalating, drawing Jonathan into combat more and more frequently. With each passing day, he's grown stronger. He can't be certain, but his attackers seem to be getting...more dangerous?

...and, of course, Heyer is gone, again.

Then came the glitch. Unexpectedly pulled from battle, Jonathan finds he cannot recall the final moments of his last confrontation. Convinced that his memory loss was no accident, he must uncover the truth.

His only leads are a less than helpful artificial alien intelligence, and Rylee, a mysterious and possibly crazy woman, who seems to think they share a history he doesn't remember.

With no means to contact the only being who can give him answers, and knowing he has gaps in his memory, Jonathan must make every move uncertain of the consequences. The blonde man better show up soon, because events hidden in Jonathan's lost memories may trigger a war humanity isn't ready to fight.

The Never Paradox is book two in The Chronicles of Jonathan Tibbs, listeners who have not yet completed book one, The Never Hero, will have difficulty following.

Parental Warning: This series attempts to keep swearing to a minimum. However, the sequel has one unavoidable usage of the F-word. This is due to its presence in a direct quote taken from another piece of fiction.

well written and captivating

I love this series. I stumbled on it by accident while looking for a new time travel audio book to entertain me as I walk or drive. This book is full of intelligent thoughts, action sequences, and surprises.

Second Book Is Outstanding

I enjoyed the first book. The characters were great. The story was different. Surprising, the second book is better. Almost never happens in a sophomore book. Alot of development in the storyline. Interesting ideas. While the book answers many questions, it also develops plenty of places to take the story. Just hope the third book does not take two years.

A sequel that builds on and surpasses the original

Which character – as performed by Steven Barnett – was your favorite?

I actually loved the new character to this book Riley. She was easily my favorite character in this book. I thought she had a great personality and was completely realized within this one book. Steven Barnett did a great job with all the characters, and the voices were all unique.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait for the third book. I started and read both of these in the last week, they are addictive. The characters in the world built in these books are pretty great.

Really enjoying this story line

This is a different take on an alien invasion. Through out the books it is hard to cast the characters as either good or evil. I have enjoyed the character building where you see that it is not always black and white.

Hodges Pulls it off

I honestly didn't think Hodges could pull of a squeal to the Never Hero, especially within the style he chose to write it. The Never Hero is one of my favorite books of all time. Not due to the incredible story arc (still really good) but because of the character development and the way in which Hodges goes about telling the hero story.

In the Never Paradox, Hodges is able to keep that style of development by growing Jonathon from the a typical soldier, to the leader that he will become. We still get the hero development story arc between Jonathon and the roommates, but we also get the personal development between Jonathon and his subconscious (Literally). We also get the love story/triangle that everybody predicted we'd get. But that development turns out to probably be the best part of the book; which is surprising coming from me! And his new love interest is already in his world and we finally have someone to discuss things with without them forgetting or not believing Jonathon!

My only true complaint is about an hour of the book about a quarter of the way in. This is when we get the answers to SOOOO many questions. It's all relevant and somewhat interesting, but it takes forever and actually starts to drag on. If it was spread out through out the book, then It would have been bearable, but thrown at you for an hours length of book, was just aggravating by the end!

I'll also complain about Hodges' desire to get Jonathon a rival at all cost. I wont ruin the story, but it's forced and undesirable. However, this is greatly outweighed by finally introducing us to Jonathon's new companions!

I can't wait for book 3 to see how this all ends!

Action Packed Science Fiction Thrill Ride

Like the first book, The Never Hero, the sequel was a great read with interesting characters and a unique story that kept me on the edge of my seat. It built upon the world of the first book and in my opinion, was even better. As a sci-fi fan, this book is GOLD. It's a must read.

Great concept that feels real

I am an avid audible listener and rarely write reviews. But this series deserves more readers! I go through about a book a week as I travel often. This series has me absolutely captivated by the world the author created. Many books fall short with believability, offering poor attempts to explain the fantasy within. Hodges's has made a believable fantasy novel which is very difficult to do. I appreciate an author who can turn a fantasy concept and make it seem plausible. And this absolutely hits that mark. Lovable characters with soft lines between good and evil. I found myself empathizing with the antagonist at times! It's a fantastic series and looking forward to more!

Fantastic Follow up

What made the experience of listening to The Never Paradox the most enjoyable?

There are some satisfying payoffs from set-ups in the first book, as well as from within the book itself. Also as a deconstruction of superhero themes it is not disrespectful of dismissive of the source material.

What about Steven Barnett’s performance did you like?

Steven Barnett nails each character,

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

read the book.

Any additional comments?

Can not wait for the next part! I'd recomend this book for fans of Urban Fantasy as it

Pointless Info Dumping

The info dumping is so long (multiple chapters) that Tibbs even mentions how pointless it was.

Aside from that its really good.

What a ride!

Wow! That was one hulluva ride! I am looking forward to seeing how this ends. I have enjoyed getting to know the characters and the challenges they face. The writing style is fantastic - I have come to really appreciate the way the author combines action scenes with ones that don't seem obviously important at first to keep the story moving along. This has become one of my all time faves.
