The cover is rad. When there is a trilogy I wanna read, I always wait for the final part to be released.

I must get my order in. I love Mr D's style of writing...and I found his version of what happened after GP most fascinating.
Although, like others, I would have loved to have seen where Mr Nation had decided to take his creations.

I have my ebook and hard copy will put it on my list of stuff to read

Mine arrived Friday. Now to find time to sit back and have a proper read.
I have to say, though, that I love Mr D's writing style. Long, complicated, flowing sentances. And so far have found myslef swept along by Mr D's delightful imaginationAngry which to me, is just a riotous blend of ideas and themes!!!
A cheroot anyone?

I'm interested to read your blog about the new Darrow book, Henry, but I think it is only fair to Mr. D that I read his book first. -Paula

Wouldn't expect anything else, it is after all just my opinion, though on the whole I found it hard to put down.

Hooray, my copy arrived today in the mail. Like other fans, I'm hoping for an enhanced audio book version to compliment the release, like was what was produced for the first book. Looking forward to reading it.

I had a look at your blog Henry, as I wasn't sure if you were just posting comments as you went along with reading it, but it seems more in the form of a review, so I will read it after reading, if you get my drift!

I've just started the book and I'm probably about 35 pages in. A few initial comments impressions, so far the book seems very similar in style to the last one and I have to say I'm a little disappointed about some of the references/dialogue. At one point a spaceship's computer refers to distance (in space) as leagues, which jarred an awful lot, also Orac said "what are you going to do now, Avon". Now to me that doesn't sound like something Orac would say, it's not his job to care what happens next etc and I don't think he's ever referred to Avon by name before. Such obvious gaffes as this, I would have expected to have been edited out/picked up by Big Finish etc.

After saying all that I am enjoying it and I fully expect it to be as good as the last one.

There is improvement, Meegat. The author used "Well, now" as a phrase 12 times if I remember correctly in the first novel, and only used it 10 times in this current one. Also- I hope you have a strong stomach- as the novel is quite graphic in spots. Sorry, but I laughed out loud at the scene where the submarine (!!) rises from the ice cap and we see Gabriella Travis sitting as on her veranda, sipping champagne out of a crystal flute and smoking a cheroot. Guess the indolent leaders of the ex-Federation, Quartet, Duet, and Empire of Cathay and all the little Alien Greys seem to do that at a moment's notice. And if you think leagues was jarring try reading about a Bowie knife. I won't spoil it for you but I'll just end with saying "Oh, no- not again" as the bowl of petunias said in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Sorry. -Paula

Lol, Paula! Well, as I said I am enjoying it, but the dialogue between the computers is also irritating; Orac's voice is not true to form, if you get my drift and I do think that Avon kill too easily but we will see ...

Do you think it is not suitable for people who have experienced horrible massacre in real?
I wish Paul Darrow to write a second, parallel story about an non-self-interested Avon, according to Chris Boucher's (see interview) character interpretation suggestion. Wouldn't that be a lucrative niche in the market?

@Lurena- Having just finished the second book, I would not recommend it if you are squeamish about graphic violence, or had personal experience of it in your own life.

I also wish the theme of the books had been along the ideas Terry Nation and Chris Boucher had put out for the series and its characters. I think the biggest disappointment for me is that the author has written a story in the Blake's 7 range for Big Finish but has instead set the story in a universe nothing to do with Blake's 7 and because of that it is jarring to read and the only similarities with the books of his and the series is the names of the characters. That's my two cents worth. -Paula
