While Shax recovers from a near fatality, his shipmates have been busy. He’s rather proud of them taking the initiative and finding them a lucrative cargo run. His pride turns to outright horror, though, when he finds out what sort of cargo. Unfortunately, he’ll soon discover that a healthy fear of frogs doesn’t prevent frog-driven disasters. Time travel has never been so messy.
This was just so great. So odd and unexpected but great. I loved it. I loved the characters, the romance, the humor and the strange plot. I also loved the narration. It was actually what draw me to the book, the beautiful narrator’s voice.
The plot was so fun, I have something against stories that feature something that was part of the story but it might be a spoiler so I just say that some new character just is so out of my comfort zone, and yet I liked him and all of the events around his presence in the story. The story gave a little more spotlight to Verin, not my favorite parts but I did liked it. I loved how Shax and Ness start to get a little more physical, it was lovely to see them exploring a little bit more, can’t wait to see how things will evolve in the next instalments. They make such an adorable couple.
The frogs…I didn’t see that coming, I don’t know what’s wrong with me, with the first time I got surprised by the cows and this time by the frogs. It was so much fun, I laugh so bad with the whole situation. I just love Shax and everyone else, there are great characters and I can’t help to love how absurd some things were. It was so entertaining, I can’t get enough of this series.
The narration is stunning. I can’t recall any other audio were it was so easy to know the change of characters, it had a nice pace and the voice while narrating was beautiful. Really recommend it for someone looking for something fun to read.
