At least it's better than the first!
Reviewed in the United States on July 25, 2018
The writing improved compared to the first book, which made this a little more tolerable. The audio book, and the text were 99% in sync, which is good, it was so bad in the first, it seemed like they were two complete different copies of the same book, written slightly different. As for the audio narration, once again the performer was fantastic. The MC was a little more bearable.
This series is written like a YA novel, yet there are references for people over the age of 30 (ie:The A-Team) which seems odd to me. The book was longer than the first, but if you take out all the repeated stats, and "borrowed" quotes from shows and movies then you are left with half the amount of pages. I feel it's like a 30 min show where the first three minutes are a recap then a seven min opening song and credits, then five min at the end previewing the next episode, and all you are left with is 15 min of the actual episode. The first book and this should really have just been one book. To me it looks like this is just to make money, short story, but more "books."
The MC (main character) also seems to lack his own identity, he seems like he is a mix of several different movie/show characters put together, but instead of mixing it and giving him one personality, it seems he shifts to mirror the personalities he is based from, and his character suffers for it.
I see there are up to 8 books now, I fear of fillers just to stretch the story out for a paycheck. As of right now the price:worth of the books are borderline. Since this was an improvement from the first, maybe the third will be better as well. There is promise with this story, I may see what he did with the third book.
