The Secret World Chronicles, Book Two: The Hunt is a selection of linked super hero tales released by Podiobooks.com
This book follows on from Book 1 in the series, using many of the heroes from the original podcast and how they try to rebuild after the invasion covered in the first book.
The stories are written by the same authors as the original, Mercedes Lackey and Steve Libbey.
This is a interesting continuation of the tale, and you really need to have listen to the first book to get the most out of this podcast. There are a few new characters introduced along the way, to keep things moving. Depending on your favorite characters from the first book you may be happy or disappointed with the amount they appear in the second book.
The storyline are solid and continue to add to the world that was created in the first, answering a lot of questions left open from the original, but making more for the follow up to this book.
The presentation is generally good, being well read by Veronica Giguere, however, a few mistakes have been left in on the some of the recording.
On the upside:
- Not your standard super hero novel.
- Continuation of a great tale.
- Lots of characters to enjoy.
On the downside:
- Does not concentrate on characters long in general.
- Need to have listened to the first book to get the most out of this.
Overall, this is an very good audio book / podcast. I enjoyed the story lines and was left looking forward to the next book in the series. It would be nice if some of the recording were cleaned up a little, but it did not stop my enjoyment.
