The Second Book in the "Lost Tales Of Power" Series narrated again by Jack De Golia @JackWestCoast. Jack's ability to do male and female voices and even different alien races in a way that I can tell who is talking before the author tells me is a great credit to his workmanship and love of the spoken word. The Author Vincent Trigili work continues to expand a universe to include other dementions without streaching the believability of the story. He takes from several different known ideas, starg ...more

This is the most intriguing series. Very well thought out and superb writing. Keeps you glued to the page because you just have to see what will happen next.
Great follow up to “Enemy of an Enemy”. Again a great combination of Sci-Fi and Fantasy.

Shelves: 2011, my-favs, recommended
I enjoyed this book even more than Volume One: The Enemy of an Enemy. It's fast-paced and scene changes are handled nicely. I like the mix of tech and magic so far in this series and am really looking forward to the next one coming out.

Nicely formatted and typo-free.

Hogwarts in space!

The first book in the series was a blend of Sci-Fi and fantasy where the fantasy bit kind of crept in towards the end. This one is really a lot of fantasy in a Sci-Fi setting. I really liked it.

I'm on my second pass through this series. My first pass was from January 21 to March 18, 2012. There are two new books out and another on the way. I need to refresh my memory.
