From start to finish this book is as fast a blockbuster! But with so much more depth! Amazing story! Fantastic characters!
This is what Matthew Reilly fans have been waiting for!
Weak in a few places but this book is setting up the story for the next three books and TFLK is still a great read.
There are characters in this book that you could call "old favourites" but I won't say more as I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't read it yet.
Overall, TFLK is definitely worth reading and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I didn't find this book as engaging as previous books and I'm not too sure why. I wonder if the narrator caused this problem (I'd read the previous books).
The idea of 4 shadow kingdoms actually having power over everyone.
The narrator should have made more distinctions between the characters. For excellent performances, listen to Barbara Rosenblatt and James Marsden, or where the book is 'read' then Kate Reading/Michael Kramer of Wheel of Time fame is a good example.
another adrenaline fueled rush from start to finish loved the edition of scarecrow to this book always waited for a cross over between the scarecrow books and jack west he books come on number 3
Well I wasn't expecting scarecrow to turn up and to now hear of a grown up Lilly and Albie. Exciting and many unexpected twists and turns loving it hurry with the next book please
Very big audible fan.
Book 4 in this series was amazing and left me wanting more. I have just listened from book 1 strait through to book 4 in the last 10 days i couldn't get enough i just so wish there was more in this series. After listening to this series you just can see why matthew reilly is a top best selling author. At least i know there is going to be 3 more books in this series, so something to look forwards to. This was another goood narration that you could't find fault with.
