A web of intrigue

A change of narrator and change of scene. Fever has left London behind but like the sinister Octopus cartel it has its agents everywhere. Plots thicken, Angels call and the forgotten secrets of flight are rediscovered. While I found this to be the weakest book in the Fever Crumb series it is still worth a listen, as it links book one and three together. A good story, well narrated but not as pacy or exciting as the others in the series.

Brilliant Cliffhanger

This book is a beautiful second book in the Fever Crumb series. Beautifully written with mystery, surprising twists and just a dash of romance. A sweet coming of age story in its own way.

Except for the ending.

After many hours of enjoyable listening, I was dismayed by the ending. I was simply unprepared for the book to end so abruptly. In my opinion the ending was a shocking and unwanted twist for these well developed and lovable characters. Hopefully there is a third book.

Unlistenable

Good story, narration makes the book an auditory and complete sensory nightmare. Distracts from the content completely.
