Summary

Success beyond my wildest dreams? Too bad I wasn't able to fully enjoy it. 

No time to sit back and watch the fame roll in when you're being hunted by superpowereds and a private military force.  

Still, everything was going according to plan. 

Grace, Veronique, and I were headed south. Our target? The secret government facilities scattered across the country. The second installment of Mutants in the Making was nearing completion, ready to be published any day now.  

Things were tense, but all was well. I wish they would have stayed that way....

Soundbooth Theater is proud to have chosen Cherry Blossom Girls as our very first audio book to include the entire SBT cast! We hope you enjoy this Tour de Force, and we look forward to bringing you more like it! 

The Soundbooth Theater team for this production: 

  • Justin Thomas James - Narration, Gideon, other male characters 
  • Annie Ellicott - Grace, Mother, other female characters
  • Laurie Catherine Winkel - Veronique, Dorian
  • Jeff Hays - Angel, Luke Lyrian, Dr. Ken Kim, other male characters
  • Dalton Lynne - Proofing, editing
  • Justin Thomas James - Production, editing, mastering, sound design

CBG2 kicks it up a notch

All I can say is im loving the SBT marketing having more than 1narrator happens but to have 4 just makes it so much better. The action helps a lot and after book 1 im really liking JTJ as our main male character. The delights of AE and LCW work well as they are such different voices and they play them well with Harmon Cooper doing so well with book 1 its good to see that this brings a lot more action, surprises and not just sex filling i the gaps there is character development and real interest to involve the listener in this instance.
Loving this so much as it all gels together perfectly.
Having given my piece then i suggest you try and see if you agree with me.
I asked for this audio and this is what I thought about it.

did not finish

I got bored of the condescending beta kid whining about everything while the story goes no where. Additional negative points for having the white knight trope where the MC has a fit over hitting woman. A woman who is superpowered and trying to kill him. Long sections of nothing happening might work if the book is 20+ hours this is 7 hours long with 6 hours of it being beta millennial with severe anxiety doing nothing other than talk about TV shows and being an author

Glad it is longer!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So good, loved the addition of Dorian Gray! Being a Central Texan myself, it was fun listening to a story around here. Brillian use of Hill Country references! No surprise, but superb narration from the Soundbooth Theater cast! I'm glad this book was a couple hours longer than book 1, but would still love them to be at least 10 hours+. Not that it would stop me from listening to a book by this group!!!! Praying book 3 comes out soon!

Solid follow up

Following the confrontation with Angel and the introduction of Mother in the first book Gideon, Grace and Veronique take the fight to them in this sequel. Looking to take down other facilities and free other mutants they head South and look for tips along the way. They encounter some new threats and make some new allies, while also expanding on both ours and their understanding of their abilities and the power of their villains.

Since this picks up so soon after the first book, Gideon is still at a loss for how to proceed which leads the trio to take risks and get into situations that maybe if this took place some time down the road they wouldn't. I think it is worked for this book, but I hope they get some time in between to grow as a group and individuals. We get to see a new mutant in the form of Dorian Grey (not the one you may be thinking of), and she has a cool power set that gets used in some fun ways. We also get further explanation on Grace's and Veronique's abilities, and some things come to light that was hinted at in the first book. The end of the book sets up for what should be a big confrontation in the third entry in the series. The power set of the characters is insane and short of getting muted by something I can't even imagine what can stack up to them. It will be interesting to see what Harmon Cooper throws in front of the next.

The production by the Soundbooth Theater guys was great as usual, and the full cast narrations are getting better each and every time out. Loved the voices by everyone, and each one of them can easily carry a book on their own, and play off each other so well that it makes for a lot of fun just listening to them put on their performances.

I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

so tired of hearing the mc say I should have...

...known better. it's becoming the mc's annoying new catchphrase. that excuse was ok in the first book that's not holding up so well still. so far the girls have been carrying the mc's weight throughout the story but thankfully gideon grows a pair

Gideon gets lai. . .super. . . to meet . . . . .

All right super fans of the ink slinger known as the most Harmonious of Coopers, hunker down and prepare your ears for an aural feast that you know is super sweet! The outstanding wordsmith has penned another tale of our super sexy Cherry Blossom gals, and has set events in motion that might mean their end.

Gideon, Grace, and Veronique are out taking down bases, when Mother decides she's had enough and sends a new girl to trounce our tireless trio. The deadly Dorian Gray, whose saliva (and other bodily fluids) is not only corrosive, but can also form deadly energy animates with a wave of her brush is now hot on their tails. Can they stop her, evade her, beat her, or enslave her? Well, you gotta listen to find out!

Dorian is another cool character who can kick butt and chew bubble gum while painting the deadliest portrait since Van Gogh cut of his ear and made a selfie. She really fits into the mythos of the Mutants in the Making, and there may just be more to her than we first see. We finally learn how Veronique eats, and that both she and Grace (Sabine, if you prefer) have their abilities toned down a bit.

Just like the first book, Cooper hits the ground running, only he's wearing rollerskates, and the ground is thin ice. You never know which way he is going to turn, and what you get and what you expect shall never meet. The fight scenes, as always, are exciting and amazing. The downtime with the girls is wet and steamy, and you get an idea of how Reed Richards feels when he is intimate with his wife, and she goes translucent. You will also realize that no matter how great your bathroom is, your showers will never compare to Gideon's. By the way, I loved the shout out to the Proxima gaming system. Now, if he could just sneak a cameo in of Momma Hughes I would be a happy happy fanboy.

Justin Thomas James really carries this book. I enjoyed him in book one, and in Gun Meister Online, but I think I have heard him enough to know that this dude can narrate. He carries the bulk of this book on his powerful shoulders, and I really look forward to him doing some work on his own, or at least taking lead in a few more books at the very least. The rest of Soundbooth theater acts as the supporting cast, with Master of the Vocal Art, Jeff Hays portraying the non-Gideon male characters, and Annie taking the roles of the CBG's, and Laurie W. tackling the role of Dorian. I can't say anough about how good the sound quality is, or the level of awesomeness these narrators instill in their characters, BUT this is really starting to turn into a radio play, and as much as I enjoy this, I really prefer one or two narrators in my audiobooks. Shoot, Jeff can play about 50 characters by himself without breaking a sweat, and Justin has the Ricola Pipes to crank out some stunning syllables himself. Annie and Laurie also have track records of impressiveness, and I think that rather than blurring the lines with all these voices, one male and one female should suffice. But that is just me. I'll take whatever I can get from SBT, and happily ask for more.

I cannot wait for the next installment. Whatever happens next will be brilliant. Keep it up, Cooper! BTW, the covers keep getting better. I would love to use this one as my phones background!


Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Another great CBG book

Loved listening to this book and can't wait to see who else may join the movement as the story progresses.
