Publisher's Summary

Will Pandora and her World Alliance rule from Atlantis, under the sea...until the world above no longer breathes?

The much awaited sequel to the highly acclaimed dystopian fantasy novel, Wham! is here. 

"Zipping from the gorgeously enchanting to the darkly terrifying, Then... is dystopian fantasy at its finest. And it's even better than book one." (Stuart Kenyon, author of the Subnormal series and Swiftly Sharpens the Fang)

While the underground frantically works to mount a resistance against Pandora and the World Alliance, the potentate’s evil grows. 

She stages withering chemical attacks wherever the underground may survive. She passes more laws to hamper their movements.

And new inventions to control their minds. 

And as Nia grows heavy with the potentate's child, her desperation to escape before the birth turns to panic. 

Get ready for hours of entertainment, from the busy pens of Carol Marrs Phipps and Tom Phipps.

Remarkable follow up

THEN is the follow up to WHAM, the first book in this series, where good v evil is again on display with enjoyable characters. Will Tess be successful against the despot queen or is the queen too strong? Again, the plot and world building are strengths, which is necessary for me to continue in a series and the drama is tightly written, some of which is dark, but that's another strength. For those who are strictly drawn to character driven works, this is for you as well. Strong, intense writing.

no.

absolutely detest this narrator, no vocal range or accent variation. the world building seems to have improved marginally since book one however still weak and not well displayed. the characters arent well fleshed out and the interactions inorganic. uphill slog to finish this book.

Just Wow!

“Then...” is the second audiobook in the series that I’ve had the pleasure of listening to, and I have to say that it’s just as amazing or maybe even more so than the first. The character and world building from the first book, “Wham,” are continued in this story, but are ramped up with even more action. With the aboveground Earth made toxic by the greed of others, the Greenwood family is split apart and have to cope with matters both above and belowground. Humans, trolls, elves, fairies, sorcerers and witches are among the cast of characters, both good and bad. It’s mind-boggling, really, how the authors can take a multi-genre dystopian, time travel, fantasy, adventure, drama, love story and fold in a believable storyline and make it all work, but they do so extremely well. And the narrator’s tone and use of different voices for the characters really brings this story to life. I loved “Then...” and can’t wait for the next installment!

A superb continuation of Wham!

I couldn't wait to read Then as soon as I finished Wham. I love the contrast of worlds - a future world choking on chemicals, where the ruler has everyone under surveillance and a past world where the air is clean, the trees are green and magic was a part of everyday life. Characters from the past are needed to help save the future from The Alliance, however the battle is only just beginning as is Tess's love for Daniel. I can't wait for book 3 to find out if The Alliance will be defeated, Nia liberated and if Tess & Daniel will make it through.

Spectacular

This is my second audio book that I’ve heard, and I’m hooked. I love listening to stories. Especially by confident, competent, and energized speakers. Which is exactly what this audio-narrator does. Effectively she evokes imagination and immediately you are thrown into the world of the story. That alone is pure magic. The fact that as you listen, you are transported into another world, that being the world of the story. Fantastically done. Professionally done.

The story itself is worthy of 10 stars. This is the sequel to the wonderful story WHAM. The adventure picks right back up and you do not feel left behind. Tess and Nia are a duo that demonstrate believable struggles and the many obstacles that they face. There are a lot of characters within this tale and each one of them crafted with a realism that most authors can’t do. But, Carol Marrs Phipps and Tom Phipps have cleverly created characters that are just as believable as that of those in Lord of the Rings.

This is an entertaining tale that will throw you into a whole new world. With creativity that takes you on a trip to another place in a world filled with characters, magical beings, and different languages. All of it taking you on an unforgettable journey.

The evil speaks volumes and can give one goosebumps, throughout this tale. With the world under great threat and with the fate of Nia’s baby comes much action and determination. It is full on with the world alliance set to destroy their very world. Everyone has to work three times harder against the world alliance. Without giving any spoilers away, the only logical advice I can offer comes with exceptional high recommendations that you yourself listen to this story, or get the book to read it. Without a doubt, I highly recommend and I’ll be keeping my eyes on full alert for another book in this series.
