Book #42: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they’ll find seven months after the invasion?

Meanwhile, Kady’s cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza’s ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha’s past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict.

With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heroes will fall, and hearts will be broken.

I renewed my Audible account for this book. I had to. My library wasn’t going to be buying it and I was starving for more. Sure, I could have read the physical copy or the ebook, but I’m not an epistolary style reader. I actually find that style difficult to read (which is funny given my favorite literature in history is Victorian literature).

Like the previous books before it, Obsidio is a full cast audio. There are special effects, characters you grow to feel for, and a story that makes you grip your heart. I believe I bugged a friend about the book because she was the only other person to have read it at the time.

The audio is well made and it’s probably my favorite audio series to date. I definitely recommend the audio whenever someone says that they want to try the series out. It is my go to.

That said, I only have one bad thing to say about this book and the series as a whole. THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE.

Final rating: 5/5
