Publisher's Summary

A fleet of 40 worldships carrying the last remnants of humanity on a mission of survival trying to find a new home...but what if a new planet were found - would it bring happiness and hope - or start a war that would rip the fleet apart?

Coming from the poverty-stricken Elfor settlement on the Humility, Master Thief Yasmine Dufont just wants a way off the stinking ship and to put a whole lot of distance between her and gangster ex-boyfriend, Dimitri. But when a dream score of credits goes disastrously wrong, she’s left on the run with a hidden code that everyone seems to want to get their hands on.

Addict Detective Zhang Woo will do anything for his next fix. Distracted by his insatiable needs, broken by the murder of his last lover, he knows he’s on a downward spiral but has no idea how to stop it, and even if he could recover the stolen navigational code his boss wants so badly, should he?  

Breaking new stories has always been Kristi Carter’s passion - but there’s something not adding up about the report she’s currently covering. Digging deeper could have repercussions not just for her career but for her very life....

As the tensions rise between Elfors and the anti-Elfor movement headed by the sadistic Captain Pierre Jefferson, everyone knows the breaking point will be reached soon. Humanity may well have been saved from complete destruction - but what cost are they willing to pay to secure their future?

Spellbinding

I loved the first book in this series, but I enjoyed this one even more! The story continues exactly where the first book ended, but the adventure gets more and more exciting and convoluted.

Full disclosure - definitely for a mature audience - both in content & language.

I have no idea what the total character count is - but it is huge! Many of the characters from book one reappear, and there is a host of new ones introduced. Many times the story has us witnessing conversations between multiple people, and as a listener, you actually believe they are all separate individuals! It blows my mind that these unique voices, male and female, are all done by the same man!

RR Haywood's writing style is so engaging, but for me what makes this book outstanding is Colin Morgan's voice work. The book is a fabulous collaboration between a skilled author's imaginative storytelling, and a supremely talented narrator. Overall, a credit very well spent!

GET AN EDITOR PLEASE

I loved the first book and generally love Haywood's writing. It seems like in this one he sat down and wrote for a year and just published it without any editing. It's WAY too long with many silly and continually repetitive scenes. I really tried to get through it since I loved the characters from the first book. Maybe he just couldn't figure out a way forward but I advise you to skip this one.

Bravo!

RR Haywood does it again! I loved this book, just like I have every other book I have read of his! Thank you for all your hard work during a pandemic to get this out to us everyone involved, but especially Mr Haywood! Colin Morgan, you are amazing! All the characters have their own voices! You’ve done a marvelous job!

Best book of 2020!

The first book was great, but this book is exponentially that much greater. By far the best development of any of the 100 audible books I’ve listened to in 2020. Funny AF too! The character Sun might be my new favorite person. I truly hope there will be a 3rd! Highly recommend getting if you are on the fence about it. You can thank me later. Cheers.

Good story, bad soft core erotica in space

I am not a prude, but the random, non story moving, detailed sex scenes got to be annoying rather than erotic. They felt like filler fluff thrown in, but overly so. I liked the first novel, but I felt like this one kept getting interrupted so we could hear drawn out sex scene details from a sex addicted character. Rather than seeming like a part of the story, it seemed like a side step from the development of the story or an unwanted distraction from the story. Instead of having the effect of showing the reader just how deep the character was lost in his addiction, it really just seemed gratuitous. It wasn’t obscene or vulgar, it just was actually boring and annoying in the story. I wish I could say it got better, but it seemed to get worse. I gave up a few hours in and returned the book.

Love R. R. Haywood - but gave up on this one.

Read the first book and it was good enough to try the second (years later). Just drags. Great characters as always and dialouge etc because R. R. Haywood is great but just feels repetitive and longer than it needs to be in many ways. I have zero issue with adult theme stuff but worth mentioning...you wont be listening to this with the windows down in your car or near other people. Tons of sexual content (as R. R. Haywood often has, but more than usual).

Extracted by R. R. Haywood is one of my favorites, it is great.
A Town called discovery is pretty genius and the same style and great fin characters as Extracted with a brilliant story setup and development. Not perfect but such a bold idea and book style.

This series was decent, but this one less so.

good second book

Wow the narrator really outdid himself. You really have to appreciate his skill. To be able to go from slinging slang as yassie to completely deadpan with no accent as Chang.. I still find it hard to believe sometimes that these voices are all from one person. Great second book in the series! The author does such a great job building these different worlds. Eagerly waiting for the next book in this series!

Almost....

Great story wrapped in way too much vulgarity and pornography. The first book was so much better. I like the story enough to listen to the final book when it comes out but this installment was disappointing.

Please get a better editor too.

Absolutely perfect

The combination of perfectly flawed characters and engaging dialogue, wrapped in an "edge of your seat" plot, deliver a deeper message of hope, love, and humanity's quest to belong.
By far my favorite series with characters that resonate in your mind and heart long after the story is over. Colin Morgan's narration is sublime. His voices definitely bring the characters to life.

The first one was better

I gave up on this one after multiple attempts. I enjoyed the first one but this one needed an editor, for sure. It is way too long for not much happening, The characters are all spread too thin and just don't progress at all. The first book's optimism and humor (so needed to balance the cynicism and meanness) is faded and half-hearted in this one. The "mature" parts are ickier and, even worse, repetitive and boring.

I wanted to like this book but, after each listening attempt, I just felt annoyed and grumpy.

The narrator really elevates these books and the reason I kept trying.

Worth the Wait

So looked forward to the next book in the Code Series, and I was not disappointed, it has been another high spirited adventure, or should I say romp. With copious amounts of hilarious humour, genuine humour which fends off the 'Fifty Shades of Detective Zhang along with the with the ridiculous amount of sexual encounters from nearly half the characters exhibiting uncontrollable desires. Thankfully, the book gets back on track and the mix of violence and anticipation kept the book flowing. This book has delved deeper into other characters in the first book other than Sam and Yasmin, the main protagonist in the first book. developing an engaging story as per The Worldship Humility.
And yet again Colin Morgan delivers superbly! His narration is like no other, with his ability to jump from character to character convincingly and flawlessly, delivering each scene with measured amounts of humour and intensity. Colin is a treasure to hear. Anticipating the next installment of the series and Colin Morgan's performance keenly

Thin all over.

Struggled with this and have enjoyed others by the same author. Character motivations are so thin throughout it became annoying. Caricatures and a tell not show style makes this a no for me.

not as good as the first one and way too much sex

Story is a little weak, nothing happens really just endless talk of sex, sexual references, descending into some really dirty low stuff. Not what I am looking for in a sci-fi book. There websites for that sort of stuff, books are for story telling, plots, characters etc The first book was interesting, the second one is a drift into nothingness.

Not a great sequel, sex-obsessed and cringeworthy in places

I enjoyed the first book in this series as it had almost a childlike innocence. This sequel carries on where the previous story set off, with all the same characters, but seems to have lost that charm.

It is hard to recall any time in this book where any male and female characters are alone together and don’t have sex.

The violence seems to have changed from the first book too, with pretty much every major character fighting and killing others.

The plot turned out better than I had thought it would - I was on the verge of giving up on this book half way - and I enjoyed the ending apart from some needless murders.

If you were unsure whether you like the Worldship Humility, I’d say don’t bother with this one. If you really liked that first book (as I did) then give this one a go. Audible will give you your money/credit back if you decide you don’t like it and want to return it.

Incredible!!

What an amazing listen!
The first book in this series is fantastic and I was afraid a second one wouldn’t be as good, I needn’t have worried! It’s outstanding!
The story rockets along, it’s one of those stories you just can’t put down. Mr Haywood really has excelled himself❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
As for the narrator, Wow!!! What a virtuoso performance. It’s very hard to believe this is just one mans work! The many voices he uses totally fit the characters. Exceptional work Mr Morgan❤️❤️❤️❤️

Exciting story and fabulously performed.

I loved listening to this book, great humour and super characters. I have listened to over 250 stories and Colin Morgan is the one of the best story tellers out there!

disappointing

disappointed.
just raunchy interactions in any social organisation
. the "in space" aspect was very secondary .
not for a serious Sifi reader.

There are not enough words to say how amazing!

Another great book from RR Haywood. The writing is fantastic and I went through every single emotion known and possibly a few that aren't. The characters are so real, there's humour, sadness, anger, tenderness...just everything.
Colin Morgan is a master of voices. He gets it perfectly and I think I'm in love slightly 😍
It was the Best Day Ever when I started listening and I now feel bereft that's it's finished.
Everyone needs to listen to this now!
Well done Rich and Colin!!!

Phenomenal

Let me be clear - I am a massive fan of R R Haywood work, the best living author in my opinion.. I used to look forward to each new Terry Pratchett book year on year, until he sadly passed leaving a huge void in many people's lives. Now it’s Mr Haywood that fills that gap and we'll deserves his increasing success into the mainstream.

Now to this book - and it's narration.. After the excellent first book in this new series, that I read not listened to on audible, my expectations were very high indeed for this new book.. at the opening words my heart dropped - a guy reading a story with such strong female characters- and with an Irish accent to boot? I almost turned it off before it ruined my own imagination of the characters. How utterly wrong I was. Colin is nothing short of astounding. A perfect match in sheer scope and depth to match the authors His range of character accents, his expression and mastery of switching from narration to character speech, his jumping from one character accent to another and another and another - just mind blowing.

The best thing I have ever heard on any media.

P’s - Mr Haywood Please please pretty PLEASE give us mere mortal Undead addicts just one more book.. please!?!?!!

Great Story Great Narration

I have read nearly all of RR Haywood's books and they are great, I thoroughly enjoyed the story in this one, Colin Morgan gives a great narration with a multitude of different voices that really brings the comedy in the words to the fore, it is hilarious at times. I would recommend the series to anyone looking for an action comedy thrill ride set in space, yup that's about it. I can't wait for book 3

I would never pick up this book

But the Audible version by Colin Morgan was a journey like no other. The second in the series by Haywood used very colourful and dark descriptions which were validated and brought to life by Colin. Haywood masterfully wove themes throughout and the last 20 chapters held me all day into the next morning. Please write another. Please get Colin to present it.
