Not as good as the first

I had listened to the first book and enjoyed it. The book description for the sequel was promising, so I quickly downloaded it.

I didn’t like that the first two chapters were too similar. My first thought was the author had written it from two different POV (Broden & Landon) and submitted them both by mistake.

I really didn’t like this at all. I didn’t like the magic aspect. I’m not sure I ever felt satisfied with the explanations.

I didn’t like the sloppy revelation of the size alterations. It just didn’t quite make sense in my head - how the brothers realized what had happened.

I think the most disappointing piece (because of the behavior and mannerisms from the first book), the reason(s) why the boys were not fully truthful to mom. Had I not read the book, the omission or white lies may not have rubbed me the wrong way.

I also enjoyed the first book more because the narrator brought more to the delivery. This narrator (Nathan Bakkker) read in a very slow and stilted tone, pausing more frequently during sentences than necessary. I also had to increase the speed to 1.25.

I think you’ll enjoy it more if you haven’t read the first book. For those reading or listening to this as a sequel, it doesn’t hold up.

I’ve definitely spent my welcome out in the IFS world and wouldn’t return, even with a free stay.

I regret being the first to listen and review ... with this lower rating.
