"The Adventure Continues"
A good second installment. Overall enjoyable, enough twists and turns, unexpected developments to keep it interesting. Performance of Mr Lee is outstanding. I enjoyed his voice selections for the various characters. At times gets bogged down by too much emotional baggage from the various characters tormenting themselves with self doubt, second guessing, etc. Overall I highly recommend it.
Identical to the first book, this starts out slow, but then the engines ignite, the G’s hit and I was thrust into Military Sci-Fi that consumed all my free time.
Sci-Fi as it should be. Can't wait for the next book! My only regret is that is should be longer so I could enjoy it more.
"So sad when it ended."
Really love this story. Can't wait for the next one in this series. Also really like the reader's reading and hope he continues as well.
"Good space opera..."
Yes once enough of the series is out I'll likely listen in order.
Enjoyable story, plenty of action, bigger than life characters, exciting large scale space combat... what's not to like!
"brilliant, buy, listen, love!"
the best kind of sci fi military space adventure action mystery. subtle humour, edge of seat constant action, great universe with heaps of potential
Great character development. Kept me thinking. I only problem might be i have to wait a year to listen to the next book
A class book. I was hooked and couldn't stop this book! One of the best books!
"Deep, intelligent, and epic in scope."
Grounded in deep human issues, filled with complex characters, and penetrating in its scope. I am not sure what to compare it to, but this is a satisfying listen that gets better as one progresses and learns of the deep mythos, elevating it above superficial space military tales to a kind of a hence fiction literature that illuminates perennial human and cosmic issue.
"Old alliances crumble, enemies become less so..."
Great continuation of book one. Excellent characters, good plot, and then of course there's John Lee whom I believe to be one of the best narrators of our time..
"Stocking good read. A real page turner!"
Has a feel of a Peter F Hamilton. Certainly ranks alongside.
Comfortable with the genre. Feels right.
couldnt put it down
"it's a good story but...."
it needs an editor. A list of characters would also be helpful. And I don't like English voices saying lootenant. Either use a US accent or say the word properly.
"Epic continuation of a gripping story"
Another superbly narrated story continuing the gripping saga of the Phoenix! Great characters and brilliant setting. A must "read"...
This has been a pleasure to listen to. i hope the story continues as it appears that it can develope into a film worthy story. to pleasure us readers of better SiFi . brilliant thank you.
