This was a great continuation of the first book. The author and narrator do an extraordinary job of bringing the characters to life and making the story fun and enthralling. Great Listen!

Thoroughly enjoyed. I love these characters. I love how they play off each other. I confess I was a bit confused for a short time but the author brought the plot together masterfully. Am looking forward to reading the third book. Don’t want the series to end!

Well then, Book two started way to slow i even thought it was shallow, and the first one was way better, although half way around the first chapter and it already feels that it even gets better! Twists occurs in a very subtle pace! The second part in the book was the best, i read it all in one set! I couldn’t flinch nevertheless leave it for another day, events developed rapidly and we get to see a new part of that world. Which broaden the sphere of struggle. It was great, Book I and II were magnificent and book have a shocking ending.

I have so many conflicted feelings. The story is entirely enjoyable, but sometimes I can feel the twists coming before they come. On the upside, with the appearance of Nimbus, I love this story ask the more both because of the Age of Myth series and because of his contribution to the story. The story of the side characters and the machinations of the bad guys are fun. I will say certain tropes are here. Without having read the last two stories in the revelations, I cannot be sure how things play out, but the journey is well worth the listen with these two cunning and funny thieves.

I enjoy this story so far, and am looking forward to the next book. However I am disappointed that the author seems to use the stories main characters constantly getting captured, as a crutch to unveil the next twist or piece of the stories puzzle so to speak. It got very boring and redundant by the end of this book seeing these characters get captured again, and again, and again.
