Publisher's Summary

The Human Blend is a science-fiction adventure centered around a group of thieves living in a future in which physical alterations and enhancements are a common occurrence. If you could take on a body with any features you wanted, what would it look like? And what would you do with them - human or otherwise?
Given his name because radical surgery and implants have reduced him to preternatural thinness, Whispr is a thug. His partner in crime, Jiminy Cricket, has also been physically altered with nanocarbonic prosthetic legs and high-strength fast-twitch muscle fibers that give him great jumping abilities. In a dark alley in Savannah, Whispr and Jiminy murder what they take to be a random tourist in order to amputate and then fence his sophisticated artificial hand. But the hapless victim also happens to be carrying an unusual silver thread that appears to be some kind of storage medium....

What happened to Book 2?

Any additional comments?

It's bad enough to end Book 1 in a cliffhanger. What makes it particularly galling is that Book 2 is not even available. Are you suggesting we buy the print version if we want to continue the story?

I feel cheated

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I have loved Alan Dean Foster's books for many years. In fact, his Flinx and Pip series took over 30 years to finish but every book had an ending. The Human Blend was very interesting and a good read for as much as there was. However, there were no completions of anything. The book had one main thread (to those of you who have read this, sorry about the thread reference) and that thread did not go anywhere. The author could have published all three books as one and still been a reasonable length, but that would not have generated as much income as three separate but incomplete books. If you want to read this series, and I suggest you do, wait until all three are available on audio and then get them. There is no indication when that will be.By the way, I feel that David Colacci did an exceptional job of reading this book.
