Terminus Audible Audiobook – Original recording
Murdoch’s past has finally come crashing down on him. His former girlfriend. His Family. He’s been happily avoiding them for ages, trying to live something close to a normal life. But now he’s been drawn back into another one of their ludicrous attempts to bring about the end of all things.
Chase has spent the past year just trying to get away. Trying to escape the memories that won’t stop following him, the moment when his life collapsed. He’s traveled around the world trying to stay ahead of it all, but those final moments may be catching up with him at last.
Anne is tired of living in the past. She’s finally looking to the future and embracing her destiny. She’s going to lead the Family forward on their greatest, final crusade to destroy the hated Machine of their long-time adversary.
Their paths will intersect in the middle of nowhere, on an uncharted island where the walls of reality are thin...and an apocalyptic threat is tearing its way through.

When “Terminus” was first released, I read several Amazon and GR reviews, plus the Kindle sample. I was really undecided about this book, so I stuck it in my TBR list. However, I did not forget about it, because a talented narrator named Ray Porter gave voice to “14” and “The Fold.” Truth is, had it not been for Mr. Porter’s spot-on narration of “The Fold,” I wouldn’t have finished that book, because I had issues w Clines’ writing.
Happily, I had a chance at an Audible deal, so I bought a copy ASAP. I again checked the reviews and saw several comments about re-reading, so I first re-listened to the earlier Threshold books. “Terminus” is more like “14,” and narrator Ray Porter is superb, so I enjoyed this book—which had a complex plot that I immersed myself into. Overall, the protagonists are well-drawn and likable. I especially appreciated the appearance of Veek, a favorite character from “14.”
3.5 stars, bumped up to 4 stars, because I liked the Easter eggs.
Actually, I almost think that the books make better sense in the order that I read them. Except that, as the word Terminus means "the end of the line" and that applied to our earth (in the context of the book), it is the fitting last book in the series.
The stage of this book was an island in the middle of an ocean. The Indian Ocean. In fact, just east of Madagascar. The antipode of the Building in Hollywood, CA (in the book 14).
There were a lot of variables in this book. As in books 1 and 2, you have members of the Family of the Red Death, sort of an MCU Hydra somehow fooling themselves that if they let the elder gods into our world, they would survive because of their devotion. Silly Family. You would be consumed along with all the rest of humanity.
However, the Family of the Red Death were enhanced (or dehanced depending on your point of view). Many of the family members had undergone the Change. The book provided no details on how this occurred. The results of the Change varied from family member to family member. Perhaps "dehanced" is the better word for once they'd undergone the Change they were less human. I'm not sure that counts as advancement.
There were seraphs in this book. No real advancement on their part. Two eyes, no nose (can you say Voldemort?), an extra arm, mouths crying out for lots of orthodontic work, and ears like stunted dried apricots. Oh, and skin that would make a zombie proud.
We now know that the bright green cockroaches are called "harbinger cockroaches".
There were neutral third parties caught between the Family of the Red Death and those defending the Machine on this island.
Tentacles. There were lots of tentacles. And lesser elder gods with vast appetites. It almost makes the Christian God seem like a better choice.
Now onto Book #3, "Dead Moon".
interesting ones (not necessarily the same). We find more about the Kavatch building and there's a ton of action. If you likes the previous books, I think you'll like this one as well.
