Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
For the most part a good story that ends on a cliffhanger. Most of the characters were good, unfortunately one of the main characters was a little on the lame side. When I got immersed in the story ---which was easy to do in many parts, I could ignore the narrator.
I realize everybody has different tastes about narration, but for me he detracted from the story.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kevin T. Collins?
Anyone who did not use the fake, forced, breathless style for the narrative parts in main character.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I cannot say that I wanted to listen to it in all one sitting because of the narrator. However I listen to these books while I commute, and admit there were a few times when I continued to listen to the story when I got home because the story at that point was that good.
Any additional comments?
Chu has potential, and I look forward do the rest of the books in the series. I wish he had gotten a head start on them.

Didn't much like the narrator at first but would not like to hear anyone else to finish out the series. .. only complaint is the constant misuse of the phrase couldn't care less.

I stared this book with excitement as the setting is interesting and I was looking forward to a fun adventure. I wasn't expecting anything extraordinary but even my mediocre expectations were let down as the book wore on.
From an good start the book sets up an interesting conspiracy with massive ramifications and then almost completely ignores it before ending with no real conclusion to events. The whole future time line has some serious holes and the magical technology is unconvincing, even for a time travel book. The characters arent anything special either so what's left is fairly weak. It's a shame because I feel the author failed to exploit a good setup here.

Not up to Audible usual standard of recording and editing.
The performance was inconsistent.
Enjoyed the story despite this.
