Publisher's Summary

In Book 2 of the epic adventure that began in Split Infinity, Stile discovers life on Proton and Phaze is getting more difficult. On Proton he's a serf trying to prove his right to exist by competing in the Great Games. And on Phaze, where only magic worked, he was the Blue Adept trying to master the powers of sorcery. On both worlds, someone was trying to assassinate him. And as if that weren't enough, he has to win the love of Lady Blue, fight a dragon, discover the ultimate weapon, and of course, seek out the all-powerful Citizen who was trying to kill him!

    Story
    "Not as good as the first book, but still not bad."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Blue Adept to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the narrarator does a good job and improves on what was written with his voice acting.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The characters need more development. Piers Anthony books read more like a transcript of a D&D game that a novel. All he does is present a scenario and show how the character uses his skills to solve it. The characters are all very one dimensional, if he developed characters more the story would be better. That being said the author is very good at what he does. He makes a ton of money and doesn't have much motivation to change.


    Have you listened to any of Traber Burns’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, the narrarator does a good job as always.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is much weaker than the first novel, but this one is still worth a listen, especially if you are like me and are re-living books you loved as a child. Be warned the writing quality of the series is bad after this one. I would not advise going beyond the third book. The series reaches a satisfying close and all the books beyond that are not good at all. they seem like the author was just churning anything out with the series name for a buck.

    Story
    "I love this series."

    Piers Anthony has a masterpiece in this story. The story switches between 2 worlds with different cultures, purposes, and plots, that Anthony keeps integrated and interrelated around his main character, Stile.

    The action is continuous. The characters are fun. Their problems are interesring, the solutions unique and ingenious.

    Traber Burns is an excellent narrater. His performance creates an immersive experience. The book comes alive.

    Story
    "Nice 2nd installment"

    There were several challenges for me in the deviations from the fantasy storyline. When an author is able to forge an entire world, I only hope that they stay true to the framework. It is slightly possible that in future stories these deviations may come into play so I will move anxiously on to the next!

    ""The Game" is a great concept"

    Half the fun is reading the strategy on the game grids. An excellent series that will keep you intrigued for a long time.

    "A good second book"
    Any additional comments?

    I've had this audio sitting on my ipod for ages and tried it a few times but couldn't get into it. Then I found out there was a book 1 so I listened to it and then fully enjoyed this one. Looking forward to the next one in the series. The thing that spurred me on to try this one was the reviews from others who also agreed it was pretty good.

    Story
    "classic 80's sci-Fi"

    Continuing my trek through classic Sci-fi. The second in a series...these are more on the paperback/dimestore short story and fun for their shallowness and brevity, being a relaxing read for those that enjoy the genre. Good writing does not always require thousands of pages. Plus, they are fun and help me relive where I was when reading them for the first time.
