Summary

In the distant future, Earth's worst criminals have all disappeared - and no one knows where they've been sent.

Sirio Falken has been a fighter his whole life. But when the government bans professional fighting, his life spirals out of control. Convicted of murder, he's sentenced to life in prison. But all of the felons he's ever known have disappeared from Earth, never to return. He's about to find out firsthand what happened to them. He'll have to stay alive among Earth's most ruthless felons if he wants to survive...and become the first man to escape from Oz.

Great book

Story is great. Love the end twist. My only disappointment was the narrator who was a little monotone for my tastes. Will look to purchase the follow up on next payday

Unique Storyline!

I really enjoyed Piers Platt's Janus group series and had no issue spending three credits on his next series simply based on the quality of his previous work. Escape from Oz is interesting in that it presents a storyline unique from any others I've heard. Nearly one third of the way into the book I had the thought "wouldn't it be great if it ended a certain way", convinced this would never happen. What a surprise to find that, yes, the story ends exactly how I envisioned in a very satisfying manner. Rather than predictable, I would put forth this is a clever ending with more story to tell. 4 stars as I found it hard personally to relate to the main character, but still a good story.

Good Story, Choppy Narration

Received a free book offer from the author. I enjoyed the story very much. However the narrator spoke with a choppy forced method causing a slight distraction from the critical moments of the story.

Looking forward to getting the next book in the series.
