I loved all the pillars of reality books and this book is no different, it's well written and action packed and the main characters are the daughter of the daughter, (a brilliant mix of her parents) finding herself and her hidden inner abilities ,and a teenage urth boy ,who finds himself with the aid of a worthy quest to save billions of lives and the adventure of his life with the most amazing girl he has ever met .
I'm not going to give any of the plot away, I will simply say, yes it must be read or listened to, loose yourself in the world of Demater, you won't regret it ......enjoy!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story of a clash of cultures, attempted exploitation, honour and intrigue. After a marathon listen I'm already starting book 2.

Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favourite?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Any additional comments?
As good as the original series. Highly recommended and I would also highly recommend the original series. Not steam punk but set in an age of steam.
Any additional comments?
Overall I thought the book was okay.
The performance by Macleod Andrews was great as usual.
My main problem with the book is the character Jason as he feels more like a caricature of the "nice guy" than a real person. There is also a double standard as when Kira does what would be considered sexual harassment in our pc society it is completely fine, but if Jason as much as looks at a woman in the wrong way he would be ostracized.
The second issue with Jason is how he make remarks on technology and constantly make comments about video games. He keeps comparing situations to things he has experienced in video games and expect someone from the 19th century to understand these things. As someone from an advanced civilization you would understand that these concepts holds no meaning to the other person and thus you wouldn't say it, as it would make no sense to them. You would not say to a African tribesman that you milked a cow in virtual reality.
