Brilliant continuation of the story, complex characters that I loved or hated.. Yorg continues to be dark, unpredictable, intense and loved the narrators voice. Mark is a skilful storyteller!

You will need a strong stomach for this story but if you can handle it, it will be worth it. cunningly written, irreverent it is thoughtful and masterful nonetheless. Characters are strong and the journey brutal but the more I listened the more intrigued and immersed I became. Like a fly stuck in a web, and I'm loving the 2nd book even more...

I normally don't go for science fiction stories but I it was the editors pick so I wanted to give it a go. At first I didn't find the story very engaging but the author conveyed alot of information about nano technology and the story was building so I preserved. I'm glad I did! Its going to be a scenario that will stay with me in years to come, a timely warning to the human race to be careful of what we create & how easily things can go pear shaped. I thank the editor for this pick, it was worthy of my time.

What a great wrap up to the series! There were a few moments in the plot that could have had more explanation but overall a great story line and character development. Really enjoyed it

Loved the second book & totally hooked now! The characters are complex and distinctive. Keto was a great addition to the story line, I'm hoping he'll be back! Strong friendship themes, nasty villains, tricky situations and an interesting magic source make this a great fantasy series! Well thought out plot, Well done Mark Lawrence 👏🏼🌟

I struggled to get into the story for alot of the time but I was glad I persevered! It turned into an interesting story about 3/4 of the way through and I cant wait to continue the story in book two now. It's brutal but intriguing, definitely unlike any other story I've ever read. Feels like Game of Thrones meets Wolverine.

I was unprepared for the 'report' style of this story and that it is a sci-fi. Having said that, it's a complex and intelligent narrative. I think it would make a great movie too. I will be interested in read book 2. If you're interested in whether we are alone in the universe, I think this story will intrigue you too.

The story flowed well but didn't result in any real surprises. Characters were well fleshed out & interesting and the story had mood and feel, just a disappointing ending however , for me.
