Has literally nothing to do with the first books

Title says it all, I was expecting a sequel of the first books but no such look, and in this one nothing makes sense and there's almost no common ground with the first book.

As if 2 worlds weren't enough....

As i said in my review of the 1st series of books having 2 whole worlds and characters is confusing enough now add a 3rd world to it with even more characters. while the book(s) itself is good and well written its was a bit too overwhelming and confusing.

sublime

who ever it was that said this has nothing to do with the first 3 books is a fool, the links are obvious and subtle both. An all round excellent conclusion. Do take the time to enjoy it, please.

Well....

Don't get me wrong for a single credit this is great, but. I sort of lost interest in the characters, there were some good concepts and well thought out plot points but I just couldn't emotionally invest. Sorry, I really wanted to love this.

However Michael Naramore is superb, his performance is perfect.

Railroad storyline

Chipmunk is such a bad character.
Frequently the beneficiary of unjustified plot, despite her highlighted character traits.
A spoiled brat and braggart can be a fun protagonist; but not so much when the world ignores those character traits to allow the story to progress.
I kept hoping the story would realign; but the whole climax of the first book just felt like the universe was going to have the events it wanted - regardless of what the actors within did to derail it.

boring

i bought this 4 book series on the basis that I listened to the entire Black Ocean series by the same author and narrator pairing and it was one of my all time favourite audiobooks. you would never know it was the same people. lacklustre story, unemotional and boring. not well delivered. wasted my credit.

good read but not as good as the first three...

I like the series over all just wanna make that point. But the characters in this portion of the series were much less likeable and the book seemed all over the map...

Gt ready for a crazy ride

War of 3 Worlds is a trilogy that runs close to 45 hours of listening time, so you are getting your money's worth to start off with, and you will find it to be well worth the time that yu put into it. I will start out warning you that this is a sprawling read. It covers three different worlds, and has a massive cast of characters that would make George R.R. Martin proud. It is filled with all kinds of goodies including tinkerers (made me think of the gnomes in Dragonlance, but withot all the DOOF!), steampunk, warriors, worlds, and more. It seems that this is a collection of books 4-7, so I will now be looking for books 1-3!!

Ok, let the praise begin. Morin has a nice style that keeps your attention, believe me, the dialogue is real, the characters utterly believable, and the plot is perfectly paced. You never have a question as to what is going on or who is speaking, and let me tell you the twists and turns are so abundant you will wnt some dramamine on hand. There is a lot of stuff you will not see coming, and then say you should have. I also appreciate a writer who isn't afraid of a little blood and gore. That being said, some indelicate types might find it a little off-putting. Still, I loved it.

Mikael Naramore brings some Babe Ruth level vocal talant to the team, he is easy to listen to, and in a book with a massive cast of characters he brings each one to life. The man can set a mood with just a slight shift in his voice, and can make the action go harder and faster with a shift in inflection. Bravo!

This is a great set of books, and it makes me eager to see how the whole thing started.

Get it, read it, love it.

doesn't compare to awakening

I couldn't get into it after awakening. I expected the same surviving characters to have a role in this continuation, and was sorely disappointed. those surviving characters had so much potential, and none was shown or developed in this series, though I couldn't complete this set, as the characters just didn't grab ms the Same way as those from awakening. hopefully he will return to those characters, and if he does, I'll purchase those books instead, but this one is getting returned.

Not as good as the black ocean series.

I loved the the black ocean series and assumed since this series had the same author and narrator, I would enjoy this enough to finish it. The narrator used too many of the same voices from the mobius, which is understandable but I could not keep from mixing them up.

I got to half way into the 2nd book and was so bored I stopped. I didn't like the father and daughter "main characters" from ether world and so I stopped caring what happened to them. one character gets injured and I honestly did not care at all. I think they are suppose to be "grey area" good guys but are not done well and come off as just annoying jerks.

I will likely finish it one day but I need to cleanse my palette before attempting.

The ending fell apart, it had the TV series “Lost” ending

I rarely give bad reviews to book series, sometimes it is not my style or interest but this series was my groove, I loved the concept of the books, the first three books made sense and had a strong plot and compelling characters, book 4&5 had growing characters but then the world got away from the author and he lost plot-line, the characters became childish and short-sited. There were double and triple crosses for no great reason except to wrap up the book. It had a strong concept, good start to the series but fell apart, it ended horrifically and made me feel that I had just wasted 70+ hours listening to the story, it had a “lost” ending. I was enjoying it then crashed and burned beyond saving.

All over the place

I got this compilation cheap but couldn't finish it because it felt like several writers worked on it and they each had different characters they loved. Plus the characters invented devices or had magic available that could have been used in much more intelligent ways, so it was difficult to like characters who failed to make good decisions. The editor should be strung up for this plot being given a green light too.

Disappointed

After listening to the Awakening series this book I was hoping for a continuation of the first books adventures but was sadly disappointed. The story fell flat and so did the characters.

good story then fast forward ending

same as the twin born series. a really good story moving nicely. well written good characters. but about 75% way thru the 3rd book it's like he slammed the gas to the floor to finish. the best way I can describe it is imagine a tv series that midway through the season the were told this is the last session of the show. so they just had to wrap all the plots and characters up really fast. this could have easily been a 4 5 or even 6 book series. but alas it just....ended. still a good listen. just dont be surprised about how it ends
