Not on par with Bob, but still fun.

I struggle with this review. The story was solid, the narration was solid, but I felt something was lacking to give 5 stars. I am glad it seems to be a stand alone novel I don’t think I would want to read any more on this story line. There were some places in the story where, if Taylor had taken a different route I would have been itching to see where the story could go. As I listened to the audiobook I kept feeling like I would get my wish at the next turn, but it just didn’t happen. I will admit, especially since I listened to the book, I was expecting more of the feel I get from the Bobiverse books. I have listened to each of them repeatedly.
Regardless, I was entertained, the characters were engaging, I definitely became attached to Ivan, though I think there were more opportunities for him to really show off his new powers. The supporting characters were realistic and captivating in their own right. Like i said, so close to 5 stars.
Anyway, I look forward to Taylor’s next novel.
