Great story. Can't wait to finish,
Page turner from the beginning. Can't wait to hear this story in its entirety. Hoping for a happy ending and steamy rance scenes.
This children's book is amazing!
Wasn't excepting this at all! Just got done with the first book can't wait to read the rest.
A trip back in time where America and Space decided to finally join together.
Hot. Hot. Hot!!!!
The sequel outdoes the original. I loved the scientific discussions and the new characters. It feels like the writing has settled into a solid rhythm. The plot thickens in this book where a demon struggles to free itself. Or is it just a man? The witches, monsters, and all the rest are explained. There is not as much new music as the first book, but the themes were used again in a good way. The musical table of contents is a great idea. Seemed like Thomas Bergersen didn't write much for this book. I am really wondering where bock three will lead us, because the ending was not what I expected. Congrats.
How can I be self reliant on $8.00 an hour? The extreme avarice from the CEOs at the top of the food chain is not giving much hope for the workers making a measly $250 a week. Once companies start paying a wage that is appropriate for the current times we live in you will break the psyche of Peter Pan, and more folk will be incentivized to live autonomously.
Colin Frake gets really good in the second book. Reanne is a really intriguing world that gets more interesting as various plots weave in and out. I'm not sure where the storyline with Tuma is heading, but it seems to have a connection to the Science Fiction elements that dominate the second book. This time the story ends kind of abruptly, leaving me wanting more. Harold Dumas has the makings of an awesome character. I love his picture at the end of the book. Not as much new music in this book, but it's awesome. Please port to other formats, so my friends will read.
My curiosity is peaked and I really need to see what Elliot is up to using Liam as his divorce lawyer.
Note: I'l try to avoid explicit spoilers, although I will be referencing particular parts of the book. I'll also be focusing primarily on Asclepius (ie, book 2), not On Fire Mountain (ie, book 1, which is also included in this ebook). The Story: Overall, I greatly enjoyed the story. Interestingly, there were a number of characters who were developed much further than in OFM in ways I did not expect -- particularly Paradeen and Tuma. I'm not sure about the idea of describing any of the story from Tuma's point of view, as she's supposed to be a sort of elevated and myserious being, but I don't know of any other way to develop that part of the story *without* her point of view. I was a touch disappointed by the ending -- chiefly because it was *very* abrupt. The sudden appearance of a particular character was never sufficiently explained. I suspect that lack of explanation is setting up something in book 3, but it could perhaps have been better handled to make the end of the book seem less sudden. As it was, it almost felt as though there were a chapter missing from the end. The Music: As with any music by TSfH, the music is top-notch, but a few things are worth noting. The new music in Asclepius is cheifly by Nick Phoenix, and includes some excellent tracks -- my favorites being Garett and Tuma. Thomas Bergersen's contributions (Soulmates, Riding with Keepers) are excellent as usual, of course. As with OFM, the individual tracks have a bit more sense of coprising a unified whole than TSfH's other music, however there seems to be a *bit* less cross-over in motifs in Asclepius than in OFM (which was already fairly limited), but it's still there. This is neither a good thing nor a bad thing, merely an observation. The Art: The artwork is again gorgeous, with some very dramatic images. I was a bit disappointed that, unlike the chapter index and the music index, however, there was no index of illustrations. Otto Bjornik has done an incredible job here -- I particularly like the Bear and the Logill illustrations. The artwork is actually very impactful (at least for me) in imagining the world -- otherwise the Deathbirds, for example, really would look more silly than menacing in my imagination. Lastly, because the story covers so much territory, some sort of map would be nice. In conclusion, a thoroughly enjoyable "book" (read: "multimedia experience"), and am waiting for the sequel with bated breath.
The melding of music and this book is incredible. They compliment each other well. The story is a fun ride. I would recommend you don't pass up the opportunity to read (and listen) to this experience. You won't regret it.
I enjoyed this! I'm rooting for the two o Mr them but hoping Liam isn't playing Jazzy. Can't wait to find out what happens next!
Reanne has a secret...... Colin Frake really delivers. I can't think of another book that artfully melds the world of witches and science fiction. It's kind of crazy how cool this is
This is no longer make-believe this is an experiment in scientific exploration. But you dont have to bone up on Einstein's spacetime and Hawkins's black holes, because your friendly fellow-traveller Dinestal will be in the lab with you dropping broad hints. If you're not sure about spacetime, just play the music ( ah, yes I feel it now! )... No spoilers, BUT can I at least say that the coolest character ever , Dinestal, comes into view in Asclepius .-- a new dimension in the worlds of Colin Frake. It you can imagine the Philosopher of the Universe - rather tall, bony (scaly ?) frail and modest individual ... well just read on. Fire Mountain, Reanne and VigeRock are still with us along with Colin. Petunia, Talia and of course the evasive, metaphysical Shore. Find yourself among new friends in Tuma and Toura, meet a whole new 'underworld' of beings: Ogarian, Bareem and Arteem. You can see what all these guys look like in the many pictures that are mixed-in with the chapters. Fire Mountain was dominated by catastrophe, courage and survival ; each community in its own place. In Asclepius the event horizon is widened, time ( and evil ?) plays a greater role, anxieties are heightened.... . and the music plays on! Excellent book, well put together in a conversational style - most of the key (universal) ideas come from the dialogs among the many thinking 'beings' in the authors 'universe'.
Lame lame lame
Lucia Jordan has done it again - two amazing characters, a good setting, and just enough intrigue to keep you wanting more! I can't wait to finish this series!
That was hot!!! Helluva start to this series!
Got to the third chapter and had to stop. Bad grammar and punctuation and some phrases that just don't make sense. Would be willing to bet that English is not the authors first language, not that there's anything wrong with that if the story is good and there is a good editor, but neither is true is in instance. Horrible!!!
I love this book! Excellent story with twists and many choices. There is the humor which I love. Will Delaney get back something given freely? Her family and friends care and fight for her. The story is awesome and to say too much would take away from the reading and discoveries you make. Read and enjoy, I did!
Read it - make music. Great tab reference!
This one GREAT book! I wasn't quite sure what exactly to expect based on the title. But, I really liked the cover. For a writer that usually writes science fiction....it sure didn't show. The story line, descriptions everything that makes a great book was there. Not hard to follow. And I never saw the ending coming. Best of all, there was a dog as a very important part. I can't wait for the next book in this series!!
I really liked this story but wish it didn't end in a sort of cliff hanger. There were times I wish things would've flowed better but I loved the characters and the idea of keepers and dragons. Who could resist a book with that?
Don't be confused. Two Steps From Hell makes incredible music, so you might think that Two Steps From Hell fantasy books are a dumb idea. But, it's not! The same imaginative side of Two Steps is present in these books. Asclepius builds on the first book and is just brilliant. This is Sci-Fi-Fantasy like we've never seen before. It's Potter meets LOTR meets Westworld meets??? But it's totally original and the characters are great. Hadrian and Petunia are my favorites and Dinestal is a great addition. Once again, book 2 ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, sort of. Book one is included in this version, which is cool I guess. I had already bought it last year. Music is great of course, and most of the illustrations are amazing.
Allah razı olsun Ramazan Ayı öncesi sürprizi oldu. Geçen sene Suat Hoca nın Kur'an-ı Kerim Açıklamalı mealini digital ortamda bulamamıştım. Elhamdulillah aradığımı sonunda buldum. İnşaallah Rabbim hakkını vererek okumayı ve hayata tatbik etmeyi nasip etsin. Allah emeği geçenlerden şu Ramazan ayının Arife'si hürmetine razı olsun.
This book is $18 for Kindle and Nook. Why is Apple charging so much?
Great story. Can't wait to read more
Dec to widtdtk the yummy young i and the way hew
I'm intrigued ... the future of sex ... I can't even explain it. I think that's a good thing as this is just the start of the series. Interesting intersection of sci-fi and sex. Stay tuned for more....
This is an interesting mix of futuristic sci-fi and erotica. I can't figure out where we are going but I never can when it comes to Aubrey Parker. Ready for book three.....
