So tired of ho hum writing, but not this one. Great mystery story, great characters and great historical setting. I'll definitely be listening to the whole series and anything else C.S. Harris has written.

Surprisingly involving and delightful.

Very timely lessons for today. Chilling reminders of man's inhumanity to man wrapped up in stories of hope and triumph with just enough magic to bring it all together. Adults will get as mch out it as younger readers who will get to see what our collective recent history can teach us. I would like to see this read in schools and used as a teaching tool. Fruitful discussions to be had from this tale that will cast light on current affairs

Delightful!

Optimistic little fable in an age of pessimism. Still don't understand how a stink bug could ever be given power.....sigh! Guess its not for ever, but it sure feels like it. Go read this to your kids and pray they grow up to be decent, loving human beings.

Solid thriller.

Mostly believable and satisfying. Bought on sale and glad I did. A few of the characters are a bit far-fetched; however, in the context of our world today, maybe not as unlikely as all that.

A tale for all ages

Had to stop listening to this in bed ad it was too emotionally intense. A sweet, moving story about coming to terms with our worst fears, wrapped up in a mythical tale involving a teen and his mortally sick mother. There's a lesson in this for all of us, no matter how old.

Excellent book, great narrator

Very smart, very relevant. Sci-fi with a serious message that just happens to be a gripping adventure at the same time. Highly recommended.

A must read

Listened to this while walking dogs and doing chores. I am going the read the Kindle version now as there is so much to process. The report is a thorough, carefully researched (case law after case law) piece of work. Clearly, without the destruction of evidence and obstructive witnesses, there would be no doubt in anyone's mind that the US is being run by incompetent criminals who will still face justice in due course. let's hope it's sooner rather than later before even more damage can be done to our world....a world we all share!

Boring and dated.

Very dull, predictable story. Narrator unable to do the accents described, e.g. Liverpudlian, as in The Beatles. He didn't even try, just did a generic Northern accent. Don't waste your credits.

Soft porn pretentiousness

Wow, couldn't get beyond the first few chapters. After wading through tedious descriptions of nothing much, I hoped that the story was building to something worth the anticipation, but found instead, to my great disappointment, that it was just leading to the author's creepy sexual fantasies and obsessions. After listening to get another description of breasts and older men lusting after teenage girls, I'd had quite enough. Our female protagonist suddenly asks a much older man if he has a large cock and wants to see it. For goodness sake, if this isn't the self-indulgent fantasy of an aging male author, I don't know what is! I was expecting something more cerebral than this garbage.

Good, unpredictable and strange mystery story. The protagonists are such believable characters that I was sorry to end the book. The narrator was excellent and really helped the book come to life. I'll definitely read more of the series as I want to know how my 'new friends' are doing and what mysteries they are unravelling
