Summary

The second book in this gripping, high-impact, high-energy new series.

After the Spinning Man was banished to the Land of the Dead in an epic struggle between good and evil Ferals, Caw's life has become safer, free of the darkness that had stalked Blackstone for so long. But there's a new villain in town - and the Mother of Flies will stop at nothing to make crime, corruption and chaos descend once more. Caw must use every ounce of courage - and every friend he can find - to face off against some truly terrifying Ferals.

Dark family secrets will be revealed - and he will learn to be very careful about whom to trust....

Much the same... which is good here

A sequel the original deserves, with a good plot and excellent performance. A+ story. A similar enough story to feel right at home in the ferals world. Similar enough to build on the characters and story of the first fluidly without a moment feeling dull or copied. Author and performer have delivered a great story that I am eager to see continued.

Easy Listening, not as captivating as the first.

On the whole a reasonable story which is brilliantly narrated by Josh Hurley, always love listening to his wide and varied voice acting abilities which were shown here well again. Was a little dissapointed as it was not a patch on the 1st book that got me started with the series, but I suppose that is the nature of all sequels, not bad though. 3 stars: ***.
