His faithful companion, DogThing - thrown to the horde of Zombies below.

The scaffold bridge that was his only escape - destroyed.

An enjoyable book three of the series, where James travels through strange worlds to fight and stop Cutterjack...amongst other things.

I like the weird and wonderful oddness of it all; the worlds, the characters and plot. It's a curious mix of fantasy, paranormal, old, machine (steampunk-like) and science-fiction, and yet it works.

Engaging and intriguing...highly recommended.

The first two books kept me guessing, wondering who people were, how the universe that the books are set in worked, and how the main character could reconnect with the memories he had lost.

By the third book, much of that had been explained and I felt I had a pretty good grasp of who the characters are and how the world works. And just as well, because this third book doesn't wait for me to catch up if I stumble. I am quickly thrust into the accelerating action as the main character and those he
The third book in the Diary of the Displaced series was as good as the second one. The characters are still great and world building is still amazing, even if some of the places were places we had seen before. It was nice to come back to the Corridor and sort of finish where we started with more information about how it got there. We get more information about the world that James came from and what is happening in this universe. This book sort of wrapped up James' story and introduces Eleanor ...more

I'm so excited that this book is finally out that I went back and re-read the first two before devouring this one! I wanted to refresh my memory so I didn't overlook any details in this third installment of author Glynn James 'Diary of the Displaced'. He packs a lot into everything he writes - a lot of action and a lot of details. Our main character is still James Halldon (thank goodness!) and I stil love him. Dogthing (my favorite!) is with him, and Rudy and Adler are still around. It starts ...more

(This review may contain spoilers).

I think Diary of the Displaced was one of the first books I read on my Kindle and it was really nice to read the next book. I liked seeing DogThing again - I was glad that he ended up being all right.

I hope there's going to be another book in this series. I don't want it to end where it did! It was an ending, but I think there's so much more of the story left to tell. I want to find out what happened to all of the characters - and it would be interesting to lea

Recommends it for: Fantasy enthusiasts ages 14 and up.
Another 5 star rating from me for Glynn James. I loved this book just as much as the other 2 with one exception... I think it ended. I'm a bit lost and confused as to whether or not there is a 4th installment that will find our heroes safe and sound, rescued by newcomer, Eleanor, granddaughter of James. If anyone knows the answer please point me in the right direction.

Bumped off a star because the ending felt a bit rushed and... well, incomplete. I have read a sample of the fourth book and let's just say I don't think my questions will really be answered. I'm going to take a break from the series and read a different author for a moment. I'll come back to this though.

This series is a rare gem. The first book was pretty awesome on its own but with the second book you come to discover how vast and rich a universe the author created for your pleasure and I must say that I fell in love with it. Completely. I will most definitely continue reading this series.

Ok the plot is interesting too much jumping around hard to follow also hard to understand at times. But a good read in retrospect of some of my problems is interesting for sure.

A great way to almost wrap up the tale of James.

I wish there were more of this story
I love the depth and characters and the overall plot.
