Exactly what I expected and hoped it would be.

If you remember the comics, this lives up to them very well. Same "feel" as the decent movie "Dredd" and not the terrible Stallone effort.

Dark - Moody - Full of cliche - and BRILLIANT

Great hidden gem. Surprisingly fresh and original

A different take on the fantasy genre. The main characters give a perspective of depth and complexity from what is often seen as the "bad" side.

The story is well written and the narration is well presented.

Definitely recommend this!

Entertaining as a fill in, but wont follow the set

I enjoyed the start of the book, and but for a couple of narration glitches on the whole it was okay. For me the "bullets just missing the main character" got a bit repetative and the story as it developed just seems to have too many holes in it and was too linear.

The cliff hanger ending...just didn't engage with me.

Not a "bad" book... but I won't follow the series.

Great continuation of a great Saga

Wondered just how this was going to unfold. Shouldn't have had a moment's concern as the story just continues to suck you in.

As ever... great characters, plot, and a truly fitting ending

Bravo!!!!

Really enjoying how this series develops

I really enjoyed the first 2 books in this series.. but I only made it 20 minutes into this and had to stop listening

The production and sound is just awful

Guess I'll have to get the Kindle version of I want to finish the series?

Will be returning this book after this review

SciFi enough... But superficial story...

I picked this book as I needed a sci-fi fix. R C bray reads it superbly.

Sadly for me the story just doesn't have enough "depth". The ruling governing republic is so inefficient it couldn't survive for as long as it is supposed to have. Elite troops that are almost wiped out easily by forces supposedly hundred of years behind their tech.

But mostly because the characters just don't really get developed. I didn't get to know any of them, so had no response to any of them dying

And just too many elements "borrowed" from other famous sci-fi greats.

Sadly one I won't continue into the series....

One of those books that was truly inspirational. In 1949 George Orwel envisaged a world in which piece by piece, little by little, the human race losses sight of its humanity.

The really terrifying part is that when reading this book, you can draw so many comparisons to our reality. George Orwell tried to warn us!

Loved it

Want sure I'd like it but tried it out. So glad I did.

Fans of the genre will definitely see since parallels to another series of books but nothing to detract from the story. The plot thickens and the characters quickly become familiar.

Well written and the narration (which I want sure of from the sample) quickly grew on me

Try it, you'll be really glad..!
