Is there anything you would change about this book?
where are all the past characters from the last 3 books? The story line was built up loads and could go in loads of ways but it all just stopped. The time line made no sense? how long after the events of Todd did this book happen?
For me it just seemed really out of place, like a short story that was rushed to fill a gap.
Has Fight and Flight put you off other books in this genre?
I am bu no means put off this genre or the Magic series, i was just disappointed by this story.
What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Everything, he makes this book what it is.
Was Fight and Flight worth the listening time?
I have to say no. I was very annoyed this was 3 times the amount of the past books and they were FAR better. this story just seemed very out of place.
Any additional comments?
I love the magic 2.0 series. the idea of the world being a simulation that only a few people have found out about is great. there are so many things that could have happened in this book to follow on from the past.
The book felt like it should have been 2/3 chapters and then the story with todd/jimmy was going to continue with other people from book 2 or something like that. Maybe this is what is going to happen but I did just feel odd.
The best part was the last paragraph... Brit and Brit... need i say more?

Very much enjoyed the previous books, but this one far less so. There was no actual threat or peril throughout the story and some sections dragged on far too long. The performance was as good as ever though.

I love this series and have been looking forward to reading this book, but what a let down. No risk to anyone in the book, no real foreshadowing of danger, and no conflict other than some petty arguments. But what about the dragons? Oh, they can't actually do any damage. What about the incredibly dangerous solution to the dragons? Ya, we made everyone safe from being harmed by it and the risk never comes into play anyway. the book ends up wrapping things into a quasi morality lesson. The cliff hanger at the very end and the previous 3 books will bring me back after this miss.
I listened a second time just to make sure I wasn't to critical. There is some foreshadowing of the cliffhanger at the end, but it's very minimal. if you really strain you can read into some of the subtext which seems like a plan for the next book to explore the dichotomy of reality being true no matter how much you disagree with it and wizards who seem to have the power to alter reality, dealing with unintended consequences, and the fact the wizards aren't always conscious of how their time traveling ability can be used. Meyer has a great short story with the first few chapters, a couple of pages in the middle, and the ending. The rest just feels like filler, and was repeatedly frustrating to see how the wizards were trying to solve their problems. This book feels as if Meyer has a great plan for book 5 and he wanted Fight and Flight to set it up, thought, "hey, dragons are cool" but didn't put enough focus in book 4.

SKIP this book. It's 10hrs of wasted rambling. I wish I wouldn't have preordered it and read the reviews. The first three books were good and this was terrible. No real danger. No real story advancement. Did the author just want more $$? the last 2 minutes of the book had the only real intrigue and it was mediocre at best. Do your self a favor and wait for the next book. You won't be missing anything. Actually here I'll save you time(spoiler): the whole book is about killing dragons that can't hurt anyone or do anything interesting. The end.
