Slow to start and good in hindsight
First, the positive. I greatly enjoyed the direction of the story and how it will come to play in the third book in this series. The story added good background and detail to help flesh out this particular universe.
Now, the negative. I'm not typically a fan of a series that begins with one set of characters, which are then replaced in the sequel by an entirely different set of characters with a plotline that seems unrelated until near the end of the sequel. After finishing Erebus I can appreciate why this book was written in this manner (see the positive), but I must admit that I had to resist putting the story down on numerous occasions. It didn’t help that the narrator changed between Endeavour (Book 1 – Michael Kramer narrating) and Erebus (Book 2 – Shaun Grindell narrating) and in my view, Shaun Grindell simply didn’t deliver. Not that he is not a good narrator, but that Michael Kramer operates in an entirely different league.
Only if he narrates that entire series.
It did! I built my own anti-matter torch and I'm currently accelerating towards C while writing this review from the future.

Annoying narrator 1st person voice
Ralph Kern, yes
The voice of the main character is characterized by words unnecessarily shaped by a relatively long whispering drag-out from the words mid-point(s), this makes the story run out about 2 hours longer than it would be in a reasonably normal speaking voice
