Publisher's Summary

Continue the epic saga of family, love, and war.
Across a century of chaos and upheaval, follow three generations of heroes who will change the face of China forever.
A young boy on the run from the Communists that murdered his family must survive in the harsh Tibetan wilderness.
A grandmother and leader of the underground railroad must face her dark past as a young revolutionary.
A brilliant but brash colonel races to uncover a shadowy conspiracy that threatens to tear the new republic apart.
When a Jasmine Revolution sweeps away the brutal Communist regime, China transforms into the world's first AI-driven direct democracy, ushering in a golden age of peace and prosperity unlike anything ever seen in its 5000-year history. Now when an economic shock brings terrorism and ultra-nationalism roaring back, the nation's favorite son, Colonel Ju-Long, races to uncover the traitors in his midst before his beloved country explodes into another devastating civil war.
But will long-buried family secrets mean it's already too late?

Not impressed.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not really. I had tried the first book in this series earlier and had multiple issues with it. But I have a thing for good book covers and this book 2 has a great cover. The synopsis this time looked more interesting than the first and thus I decided to give this series another try. But alas, the book striked out this time too. The setting just didn't feel relatable and I didn't feel invested in the story or the fate of the protagonist. I powered through a large portion of the book, expecting that it would get interesting in the next chapter, but it never got to that for me. And thus, I can't honestly recommend it to my friends.


Would you recommend Through the Darkening Sky to your friends? Why or why not?

Err.. it's the same question. Amazon, fix your bots.


Would you listen to another book narrated by Leanne Yau?

Somehow the accent sounds Scottish / British, which doesn't really work for this book. It might work for British detective novels, in which case I'll be interested in listening to those books narrated by Leanne.


Any additional comments?

I received this audiobook for free from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

Another great book in this new series

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I thought this was a brilliant follow up to the first book in the series. It kept the overall story ling going and had the same depth and character as the first. I also thought Leanne Yau did another great job narrating this book as she did book for book one. Definitely looking forward to the next book.
