Loose ends tied while a tapestry unravels

Firstly, I just want to thank Schott for naming a major character after me. I'm sure this isn't at all a coincidence. Nope. ;)

I predict the reviews for this book will be a bit contentious. Personally, I enjoyed it. But, I have the feeling a lot of people who are casual listeners might have some complaints.

Tru and Danielle are back. In fact this book does a good job of bringing back pretty much everybody. Considering how many characters and worlds Schott has introduced, I think you'll get my implication that a lot of listeners might find this edition to be a bit overwhelming.

The literary *multi*verse brought to us in this series is amazing. If you're paying attention, the way the worlds fit together is very much clarified in this submission. The palace intrigue is wild. It is unlikely that you'll find yourself bored at any point.

Schott is definitely a fan of the "surprise reveal"; However, this can be problematic when it's been a few or even several books since a character was first introduced. I am fortunate because I decided to briefly re-listen to some portions of Interlude: Brandon and Shadows. If I would not have done this, I think I would have been very, very lost at the significance of some of the happenings. Schott's stories are honestly a bit more suited for an arc on a TV show than other media. Digital Evolution may be a bit *too* overwrought, if I'm being honest.

If you're okay with a little ambiguity and willing to read between the lines, I think you'll enjoy this book as much as I did.

Also, this book has one of the biggest cliffhangers, maybe ever. In fact, the term "cliffhanger" is wildly inadequate to describe how things are left. (I refuse to listen to the short snippets at the end of the books. I don't like spoilers.)

Luke Daniels is great as always. I'm really glad his clear and precise narration was gifted for this series. I think the majority of performers would not do it justice.

Very confusing keeping track, too convulted

First out, both Terry Schott's writing and Luke Daniels' performance are quite good. However, while the story was written well, the fact that there were multiple worlds, all with key characters along with some characters drifting in and out and some existing in multiple worlds made it very difficult to keep pace with the thread that makes up the story.

I'm left to suspect that even Terry has a huge rose-like Venn diagram on his wall defining the many relationships both human and world overlap, that he often refers to when writing the next book in a series.

In the end, I gave up trying top keep the various world relationships and ended up just listening through it, knowing full well that I'm losing a lot of what the book is about.

There's something about this storry line

Its odd, everytime i finish one of this books i want to read more about it, had to wait a few times for the next book to come out so it went to the back of my mind. And for some reason I know i want to finish this storry line but dont really have the drive to dive right in to the next book. Once i start again i remember what i liked about it again and want to finish right away. This time i'm lucky and wont have to wait long since the next book is available already.

This book i really liked, lots of pieces of the puzzle start to connect. Up to the next part that hopefully will be as good as this one.

Loved it!

Loved this book and can't wait for the next one in the series. It was great! If you haven't read or listened to any of Terry Schott's books in the Game Is Life series, you are REALLY missing out.

Love these Books

I absolutely love this book series and the reader is one of my favorites. I think I have 2weeks to wait before the next and I can't wait. One of the best things besides the story of course is that the publisher puts a few chapters of the next book at the end of each and I love that. Thank you Luke Daniels for the great work and Mr. Terry Scott you're a great writer and please don't stop! We love your books.

Great job once again.

Love this series. The multi layered approach to the game keeps one guessing and waiting for the next big surprise to drop. The author surely has the entire thing mapped out because he introduces new components very fluidly. Great job! Luke Daniels is an awesome reader. Bring on the next one.
