    Description

    One of AudioFile Magazine's Best Audiobooks of 2019: "[Euan] Morton brings distinct voices and emotions to every character.... Listeners will be hard-pressed to believe they aren't listening to a full-cast production." (AudioFile, Earphones Award Winner)

    The hotly anticipated sequel to the number one best seller Carry On

    Simon Snow is back and he's coming to America! 

    The story is supposed to be over.

    Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after....

    So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch?

    What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. He just needs to see himself in a new light....

    That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West. They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place....

    With Wayward Son, Rainbow Rowell has delivered an audiobook for everyone who ever wondered what happened to the Chosen One after he saved the day. And an audiobook for everyone who was ever more curious about the second kiss than the first. It’s another helping of sour cherry scones with an absolutely decadent amount of butter.

    Come on, Simon Snow. Your hero’s journey might be over - but your life has just begun.

    "Morton brings distinct voices and emotions to every character - from posh vampire Baz's deep frustration to fast-talking wizard Penelope's snappy repartee, from de-magicked and be-winged Simon's formless longing to a whole bevy of American wizards, vampires, and Native-inspired creatures. Listeners will be hard-pressed to believe they aren't listening to a full-cast production." (AudioFile Earphone Award)

    A fantastic sequel

    Wonderfully narrated yet again, and highly recommended!!!! I love how you recognize the characters in their most typical traits yet get plenty of opportunities to witness their development. Pretty much my favorite road trip story.

    Road trips and vampires, what more could you want?

    A great continuation of the Carry On series, starting where other stories end. I greatly appreciated the different approach and all the topics that usually get glossed over in other stories.
    The characters are as lovable as always, with a new addition to the team.

    Curious to see how things will go in the last book of the trilogy, and how RR intends to wrap it all up!

    Narration was also great and so intensely British it had me laughing at times just from that. Fit very well with the book and story.

    ACTUALLY, THERE ISN'T A GAY ROMANCE

    soo, difficult to decide on a rating here but I'll let you know what I loved about the story, and what I disliked. (I probably would've rated the first book 5 stars, just for reference)

    I liked:
    the characters. they are well-written, have edges and a somewhat cool dynamic.

    the idea for the story. next-gen vampires are something I haven't heard of before and they fit perfectly into the world. don't want to spoil too much though.

    I didn't like:
    the story (the idea was great, the outcome rather mediocre) I can't shake the feeling that nothing really happens here. it all stays kind of superficial. there are many hints at ideas (dragons as mountains, next-gen vampires etc) but nothing really gets elaborated much further. we only get a glimpse of what could be, but isn't, in the end.

    character development. yes, we see some super small changes in attitude during the story. and apparently, Simon has changed a lot at the end (or so he decides on the last pages) but we don't get to feel or witness that during the story. they all stay the same. which is a bit boring.

    the romantic part.
    this is the worst part. I've initially started this series for its little gay romance, but there isn't ANY. since book 1 it's been fear and uncertainty between Simon and Baz, nothing else, NOTHING CHANGES in this book either. they constantly think stupid thoughts, don't say anything real to each other, don't listen to each other and think it will all break apart eventually anyway.
    I'm sorry, but this is NOT a relationship (though they call themselves boyfriends) this is something sad and childish, it's almost tragic.
    also, you can't tell me that teenage boys around the age of 18, 19, haven't touched each other in the slightest after months of being together, kissing, making out and cuddling a lot (in the beginning).
    not that I need anything explicit to read, no, but they author explicitly lets us know they haven't had sex. for literally no reason apart from Simon mentioning he doesn't "wanna get pressured". ofc, this could be a valid reason, if elaborated, but as I've said above, nothing changes or evolves between the characters. this is how the story starts, this is how it ends.

    SPOILER regarding the ending: they're in the exact same spot in the (actual) last scene as they started their relationship in book 1: not listening to each other, probably going to break up soon. that's how it ends. wow. and the author dares to advertise this book with "for all who want to know what happens after their second kiss".
    well, nothing. at all. a few more kisses, the same damn toxic "relationship". it's devastating and sad- the story could be so amazing if their relationship had evolved into something good. or evolved into SOMETHING. hell, break up, if it doesn't feel right, but this just felt so bad to read.

    thinking about not getting the third book and maybe even returning this one.

    Simply fantastic

    I forgot how much I missed the characters from carry on. Wayward Son is a fabulous sequel and I can't wait for book 3 to come out. Thank you Rainbow for continuing with the story

    very good second part of a series.

    a very good sequel to the first part, I think it works very well as the second part in a series to establish the next part and prepare coming conflict and chatacter arcs, while still being generally entertaining and a story in itself.
