Since it had been seven months since I read book 1 of the Numbers Game Saga I re-listened to it prior to Numbers Ignite. I was glad I did as I picked up on several things I missed the first time and re-fell in love with the characters. I really enjoy books that have hidden nuggets that I pick up on subsequent reads.
Rebecca Rode does a fabulous job of hooking the listener/reader from the start with well-rounded main characters, a cast of well-placed and written side characters, and visuals of the world they live in.
The two character POV (point of view) works well with this story as both Treena and Vance continue to grow as they learn about themselves and the world they were born into. I eagerly await the next chapter to this series.
Stacey Glemboski’s narration was wonderful. Each character had its own personality and voice. I am especially impressed with her male voices, some of which are ‘yummy’. I was very pleased that between Rode’s prose and Glemboski’s narration the characters jumped off the page giving me a full surround sound & vision brain movie.
I hope dystopia/post apocalyptic books like this will influence their audiences enough to smack some sense into the human race. Gearing this book towards the teenage reader is an excellent start. This series is also very enjoyable for those of all ages.

What did you like most about Numbers Ignite?
A brilliant continuation of the series. I loved book one and this takes me along a journey that feels right for the series. It's entertaining with great characters.<br/><br/>If you want the details Numbers Ignite tells the separate adventures of Treena and Vance who are separated at the end of the last book. They take on a new enemy -- or rather enemies. Vance is not on hand to help Treena because he is captured and brought to a settlers' camp where he is to be tried for betrayal of his clan and mass murder. Treena is alone in the desert, determined to make her way to Vance. When the two finally unite, they uncover a plot much bigger than the throne, much bigger than NORA. Which is great!
What did you like best about this story?
It develops the story in a way that feels right. Treena and Vance are great main characters. On the one hand it's Treena who is the lead in the first book but we see a bit of development of Vance without loosing Treena and her importance. It's a really good book!
Which scene did you most enjoy?
I can't answer that without spoilers and that's really not fair to the book. Lets say that this is a really good book.Our characters are growing organically in terms of numbers and in terms of the characters that we are already familiar with. The sense of discontent in this very unique society is brilliant. It's very good.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. I managed to do it in two thanks to a long drive in the car. It's great!!
