Maybe we…moreIt’s listed above as Brotherhood of the Wheel #2 for series. I’d expect some variation of that, like The Brotherhood series. It fits, right?
Maybe we can do better in picking a sly but also cutesy name for fans of this series or of Belcher in general. The Belchies! I wish I could spell out the sound I make from my stomach to mouth after slamming a can of Coca Cola Classic (ACK! I mean Cheerwine!!) because that would be an amazing club name for R.S. Belcher fans. The RC Colas? (less)
I already want the next book! Maybe it'll take less than two years to come out? Maybe?
ETA: Well. Okay. Maybe the third book will come out in like 3 years? I read an article & it seems like the author has several projects lined up. Which is good! More books! Just not necessarily one here.
At the end of the story, I'm left thinking:
When is there ever a right or good time to start a story? The very beginning? Middle? Towards the end? Yet, since time moves on, there's no true ...more

I liked this one even better than the first, and I love that Belcher is starting to give us a glimpse of a longer arc. I also love Bronson Pinchot's narration and voice acting, although I wish he wouldn't whisper with some of his breathier voices. His voice is so deep that when he whispers my poor ears can't hardly hear it unless I have earbuds in. That said, I don't think I'll ever be able to get my head around the character with the Scottish brogue/Hillbilly accent. I'm not sure how Pi ...more
This series has really grown on me. I bought "Brother of the Wheel" as an impulse buy & really enjoyed it. I've enjoyed the character growth of Heck & Max. I am really curious to see where Mr. Belcher is goi ...more
The nitty-gritty: A complex and unputdownable story filled with fascinating elements and well drawn characters makes this another must read from R.S. Belcher.
Oh Rod Belcher, you’ve done it again. If you love ...more

While the story is well written, and some of the characters are fascinating, there are a couple of small points that bring the story down for me. Unfortunately on ...more

I think the real appeal to me with his various series is that while I may not be as far out on the fringe as his characters wind up being, I'm also a bit beyond the hem in real life, so I can relate to the feelings of not being part of the main body of society. That and the fact his stuff is well written makes for an author I'm keeping alerts open for new material from.
This is a wonderful book...highly recommended
Great worldbuilding, great characters, that feeling of grit that covers the story..fantasy that doesn't pull punches.
The first book was amazing, this one ramps it up.
go get this series.
