A good read.

Not the best book MR has written but a good read overall! If there was a sequel I probably would!

Another great tale from Matthew Reilly

I wasn't too sure about this story as the subject was very different from Matthew Reilly's usual stories which I really enjoy listening to. However, this was a great story and well read, from start to end it had me wondering through the twists in the tale.

Prolonged start, but much better as it progressed

Whilst I understand that the beginning needed the scene setting it did seem to drag a little. Once it got into the main crux of the story I was gripped, great story and well performed. Thanks.

Gosh... surprisingly good!!

I really wasn’t sure about this... a YA book (I am not a YA!)... but I enjoyed MR’s Scarecrow series, so thought I’d give it a try.

I was pleasantly surprised to be quickly absorbed and I was up half the night listening. I actually found it a little scary at times, but it’s not gruesome or horror, just suspenseful.

Anyway, don’t be put off by the YA label, it’s really a mystery/sci-fi tale with a high-school backdrop, but fairly quickly shifts focus to an impending apocalypse and mysterious goings on... am looking forward to the next instalment!

Well narrated too!!
