not too bad at all :)
I have to admit this one took me a little longer to pick back up than some other second books have. And I really wasn't sure why. I think the characters in the beginning of this and the situation they find themselves in just didn't grab me as much as the MC's being stranded on Ludus in the first book.
However it did pick up, and I was glad that I stuck around.
The POV switches were handled a lot better in this book, considering there were only a couple of changes in the first, this had a lot more balance in it, and because I'd gotten to know the others, it was good to get inside their heads a little more.
I've seen some of the other reviews and comments about Thirsty as a character, and I have to admit, I loved him/her. I think this is exactly the kind of situation and personal event that would happen. It wasn't his fault he ended up on Ludus anymore than it was for Henry and Jason, and Jeff's characterisation of him/her both were fab. I really enjoyed the performance and the person underneath it. Thirsty plays a great and integral part in this book and I hope that we do see more of her :)
Overall, this book did seem to take on a life of it's own, there was the onset of their journey and then it was taken over by having to defend against a horrific attack. I thought it all came together really well. And Jason, was just fab. No spoilers, but the ending, brilliant.
It may have seemed a little on the short side, but only because we know that although this was a novel and story on it's own that there's a lot of set up and more adventures to have.
I kinda think this would be the series for me that I'd binge listen to, one after the other because that would make this much more fun. Waiting on the next one is hard...
Come on Blaise and Jeff. More!!!

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the book and liked the characters a lot more in this one (the first book had too much self deprecation and loathing). The story was interesting and makes you want to continue.
But, it does not feel like a complete book and more like a small stepping stone.

This series just keeps getting better and better
All right, admission time. This book combines two awesomely talanted individuals, whom I deeply respect. Corvin has anability to write a battle scene that will simultaneously make you sweat from fear and laugh uproariously at the same time. His characters are real live people, and you feel every emotion they display. His dialogue is sharp and witty, and his plots are skillfully interwoven.
Jeff Hays, is without a doubt, the best narrator I have ever heard. He is the Andy Serkis of narration, stepping into a role and making it his own while staying true to the character and not disrespecting the writer. Seriously, this guy is the Lon Chaney (Sr.) of voice actors. He can play male and female, human, dwarf, alien, god, etc. You name it and he will have a voice for it.
The Delvers books only getter better and better as they move on, with the stakes continuously raising, danger mounting, and the team having a hard time staying together.
If you aren't reading this series then you are only hurting yourself. It is packed full of great fight scenes, hot chicks, magic, powerleveling, jokes, and a jerkface god named Dolos. You have to realize that by not reading this series that you are causing irreperable psychic harm to your brain. Don't fry your brain, get this whole series and see what you have been missing.
