Description

Humanity needs a savior. But a rivalry between two tinkers threatens to destroy the world they're trying to free.

Cadmus Errol is the greatest inventor that Tellurak has ever known. His clockwork graces the spires of cities across the world. Yet in another, darker world, he lives the life of a slave. There, humanity is held underfoot, bound in service to the victors of a war fought untold generations ago. It will take all the wits and resources of the best that humanity can muster to break that hold. Can Cadmus Errol, the Mad Tinker, be the one to free them all? Or will his daughter take a shortcut through dangerous science to wipe out humanities oppressors?

The Twinborn Chronicles: War of 3 Worlds is an epic fantasy series with multiple point of view characters. If you love steampunk gadgetry, heroes who get their hands dirty, and a DIY heroine, this series is for you!

Pick up your copy of the second full collection, and discover an ally you never knew you had.

good read but not as good as the first three...

I like the series over all just wanna make that point. But the characters in this portion of the series were much less likeable and the book seemed all over the map...

Gt ready for a crazy ride

War of 3 Worlds is a trilogy that runs close to 45 hours of listening time, so you are getting your money's worth to start off with, and you will find it to be well worth the time that yu put into it. I will start out warning you that this is a sprawling read. It covers three different worlds, and has a massive cast of characters that would make George R.R. Martin proud. It is filled with all kinds of goodies including tinkerers (made me think of the gnomes in Dragonlance, but withot all the DOOF!), steampunk, warriors, worlds, and more. It seems that this is a collection of books 4-7, so I will now be looking for books 1-3!!

Ok, let the praise begin. Morin has a nice style that keeps your attention, believe me, the dialogue is real, the characters utterly believable, and the plot is perfectly paced. You never have a question as to what is going on or who is speaking, and let me tell you the twists and turns are so abundant you will wnt some dramamine on hand. There is a lot of stuff you will not see coming, and then say you should have. I also appreciate a writer who isn't afraid of a little blood and gore. That being said, some indelicate types might find it a little off-putting. Still, I loved it.

Mikael Naramore brings some Babe Ruth level vocal talant to the team, he is easy to listen to, and in a book with a massive cast of characters he brings each one to life. The man can set a mood with just a slight shift in his voice, and can make the action go harder and faster with a shift in inflection. Bravo!

This is a great set of books, and it makes me eager to see how the whole thing started.

Get it, read it, love it.

Not as good as the black ocean series.

I loved the the black ocean series and assumed since this series had the same author and narrator, I would enjoy this enough to finish it. The narrator used too many of the same voices from the mobius, which is understandable but I could not keep from mixing them up.

I got to half way into the 2nd book and was so bored I stopped. I didn't like the father and daughter "main characters" from ether world and so I stopped caring what happened to them. one character gets injured and I honestly did not care at all. I think they are suppose to be "grey area" good guys but are not done well and come off as just annoying jerks.

I will likely finish it one day but I need to cleanse my palette before attempting.

doesn't compare to awakening

I couldn't get into it after awakening. I expected the same surviving characters to have a role in this continuation, and was sorely disappointed. those surviving characters had so much potential, and none was shown or developed in this series, though I couldn't complete this set, as the characters just didn't grab ms the Same way as those from awakening. hopefully he will return to those characters, and if he does, I'll purchase those books instead, but this one is getting returned.

All over the place

I got this compilation cheap but couldn't finish it because it felt like several writers worked on it and they each had different characters they loved. Plus the characters invented devices or had magic available that could have been used in much more intelligent ways, so it was difficult to like characters who failed to make good decisions. The editor should be strung up for this plot being given a green light too.

Wide Array of Voices and Destinations

Given the name of the series you should expect a decent amount of hopping between different locations, and just like the first trilogy this one does not disappoint. the story is complex and has obviously been crafted with attention to details, both from it's own narrative and the ones that came before. I found myself enthralled by many of the side characters that presented unknowns throughout the tale. Great series!

good story

Would you consider the audio edition of Twinborn Chronicles to be better than the print version?

good job on the overall but go a little to predictable the last couple of chapters after having read the other series.

Steam Punk Meets Fantasy

A wonderful blend of steam punk and fantasy. It is clear that the stage is set to add SF to the mix in the next book. I will look forward to it’s release!

Full of Unlikable Characters

If you are looking for a series full of characters that are not even remotely likable then this series is for you. Every character is extremely selfish; I think the main characters spent more time focusing on how to betray allies then fighting their enemies. Only the worst characters from Twinborn Chronicles play a major role in this series. The ending is pointless full of illogical betrayals that made no sense other than to create conflict. It seems like the author got bored and decided to just end the series by killing everyone. This series ending was a huge letdown.

Other reviewers are right

I don't like to write negative reviews unless there's something constructive to say as well. So I must say, I enjoyed the first trio of novels, then I read the short story collection in between (highly recommended order), finishing with this set of four books. As always, narration was excellent. I did notice a few places towards the end where there were slight slips in character accent (as a former audiobook technical editor from earlier days, I still notice these things automatically).

I was really interested in the first set and the short stories. This started out strong, but then, just as other reviewers said, the last half (two books) felt rushed and convoluted. I don't know why certain characters were sprinkled throughout when really each gave one speech if significance towards the end (to separate people) which could likely have been done by someone else. The constant changing of modern terminology into something more steampunkish was fine at first but after it felt like every other noun was being replaced or re-engineered, I started taking days long breaks from the story.

Honestly, I started noticing I was gritting my teeth when "flash pop" started being used to indicate a photograph. All the epithets being mechanical in nature - some unnecessarily so - and questions about how and why folks ended up where they did. (What happened to those involved in Operation Potato, for example? Both victims and defender.)

I may have missed some things. I had started to tune out to keep my sanity. If this were a 25 or so hour book, I would have stopped it and not finished it. But having invested so much time into the series, it would bother me ever so slightly not to see the thing through. So I did. And I can't wait to remove it from my device to make room for a fresh new story to clear my mind of the last part of this set. Or better yet, I'll go back and listen to a few more lectures from some of my Great Courses as interesting mental palate cleansers.

The narration is really what kept me going to the end. I think I still might have stopped it if it weren't for the steady, soothing voice telling the tale as I gritted my teeth against another mention of "pocket clocks" and "crash ball" and "thunder rails" which - aside from the names - appear to be identical to the present world "watches," "football" (American style), and trains/locomotives.

Thank you for an easy vocal performance. I will certainly continue looking for narrations by this gentleman (I hope I am close to the right spelling - Mikel Naramore?).

From this author? I will have to think long and hard, read reviews, and make a decision. No more automatic purchase by author name alone, I'm afraid. Surely disappointed, frustrated, and somewhat annoyed by the end of this series.

But the narration was excellent, and the first two books were pretty good in this set. Only the last two here seemed off in the ether somewhere.
