What is the secret of the Atomic Sea? Find out today! Epic adventure in a strange world by best-selling author Jack Conner.
This is the fifth part of The Atomic Sea epic fantasy / science fiction series.
It was really nice to be back inside this world. I really enjoyed this because it brought to a head a lot of things.
There were some really defining character moments. From Fredrick, to Sheridon.... The gang have been through so much, getting on an air ship even if it is a pleasure house, and then chasing after the over city. What a horrific world they inherit. Jack still amazes me with the horrific creatures in this. And this other place, and other 'heart' like creature that seems to be eating other weird creature, eeghhh had me shivering.
The best part to this of course is the ending. It's just so action packed, that I struggled to actually listen to it when in work because I have to keep putting it down and wanted to listen all in one go. The fact Sheridon hadn't poisoned Annie was so touching, I kinda felt so sorry for her, with all the stuff that had happened I actually think she really did love Francis. And now she's gone. Layanne losing Fredrick was also pretty hard, just after losing his father too.
I think Fredrick made the biggest arc in this part because he didn't want to help them and then he really did and he really meant it, where we thought he never would that he hated his mother, and what she did. But he can't have.
For Janx of course killing Oothua and his friend, Muir Blog, hard. Finding Hildebrand, excellent, and of course the reuniting of Francis and Annie. They're all real deep moments, these characters are so real, so fully dimensional this is one of the biggest, epic series I've listened to, I wonder what Jack is going to do next :)
The narration from Ray is amazing, these characters are just so alive because of him. Just loved it, and really didn't want it to end. sigh. Fab job by both. More please is all I can say!
What made the experience of listening to Flaming Skies the most enjoyable?
It was another chance to catch up with some familiar characters and see what they've been up to. They've been up to a lot, it seems like (though there is almost no time gap between the last book and this one.) We see the culmination of events that have been transpiring over the past four books, but instead of resolution, we are going deeper down the rabbit hole.
What did you like best about this story?
Answering this question is difficult to say without spoilers, so suffice it to say my favorite part was a reunion that takes place during this book that we the readers have been anticipating.
Which scene was your favorite?
Again, spoilers, but one of my favorite scenes is when the massive Overcity stops. Literally, it just stops. It's hard to imagine such a colossal scene.
Any additional comments?
This book ends on a bit of a cliff hanger, so buckle in and hold on tight until the next book is completed!
