I can’t believe it,
When this audiobook came out a couple of days ago I when and got it right away.
Then in two days I listened to both audiobooks sure that it’s the complete series.
How wrong ! Now I got to wait who knows how long for the next audiobook to get released. I’m pissed of but I can’t say that this is a joy of a series so it’s going to be worth waiting !

Both audiobooks are great, easy to understand it all and full of enjoyment.

Perfect narration by R.C. Bray and Julia Whelan .

NO! the first book was sooo amazing, and this one.... ugh. The plot went exactly where it didn't need to go. I am thoroughly disappointed. Perhaps it's a set up for the 3rd book, but I'm so done with the story that I'm not sure I want to read it.

This is good shit.

Got a little drab with the loop stuff but the author pulled it off.

Few books in the science fiction genre can truly be classified as unique...but along comes Dean M. Cole's much-anticipated sequel to "Solitude." With "Multitude," Dean has solidly laid claim to that label. I had expected more surprises from the characters of Vaughn and Angela. I had anticipated an action-packed story. I had hoped for an exploration into the cause of the catastrophe that wiped out life on earth.

I had not been prepared to be shoved, kicking and screaming, into new dimensions.

It’s very difficult to write a review for a Dean M. Cole book. What Dean does with his writing is nearly impossible to describe without giving away spoilers. When an author is so talented that he can weave a story, taking you to a place you actually believe: you cannot help but be grateful to them for that gift. When that author can pitch you into an alternate reality and then bring you back to this time and place: you cannot help but appreciate their brilliant mind. When an author does all that ...more

3.75 - 4.0 ⭐

I listened / read this book. The ebook was a KU.

In this sequel Vaughn and Angela follow a trail of metal floating on the sky to CERN. They need to find out why all life has disappeared and who is responsible. What they find shocks them. Their efforts to stop those responsible pushes them into a time loop, traveling to alien and decimated dimensions. They also discover the gruesome truth of where all the people and animals went. Now more than ever they have to stop the enemy.

Holy smokes!! Where do you even begin with this one. What a great and ingenious story. It is smart,wild and weird but it fits so nicely. What a continuation of the series and I cannot wait to see where the series goes next. I love both of our characters even with their worst flaws. The journey they are on is one for the ages and I cannot wait to follow more. My favourite thing about this book was the descriptions of all the landscapes and worlds that this author has created it is just fabulous. ...more

OMG! Multitude was absolutely fantastic! If you haven't listened to Solitude yet, I highly recommend that you do. This picks up right where the story left off and explains what happened to the rest of humanity. Angela and Vaughn make their way to CERN to figure out what happened to all human and animal life on the planet. What they find is horrifying! In an attempt to stop a horrible invasion, they end up in an unending loop between parallel universe trying to find their way back home and put a ...more

I've been waiting for the follow-up to Dean M. Cole's "Solitude" for, it seems, forever. Solitude was a great book, and it left just enough of a hint about things to come in Multitude, that I knew I needed to read it as soon as it came out. And I'm happy to say that the book did not disappoint. Without giving up plot details, I can say that Multitude is one of the most imaginative books I've read. An adventure that spans dimensions. It differs quite a bit from the first book, in that the two pro ...more

I had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of Multitude, and read it I did. Well, that's probably not exactly right, it's more like I devoured this wonderful banquet with no hesitation. Dean's writing is concise, well thought out, and quick paced. I became a sci-fi and fantasy fan after reading The Wizard of Oz at age 7, in 1950 and have been hooked ever since. One of the things that's hard to find these days, is original story lines and plots that contain direction, movement and interest. I ...more

I liked Solitude. It was a solid dumb bit of adventure fiction which was far fetched but was confined in its rescue each other, survive the crisis way. Multitude opens up a multiverse, time travel and some solidly toxic masculinity in the place of character development. There is very little sense of the emotional toll of the death of the entire planet on the leads, as the snark at each other between adventures which don't eventually resolve and never really clarifies or identifies the rules of i ...more

I thought Solitude was filled with nonstop action, but it doesn’t hold a candle to Multitude. Following Angela and Vaughn as they attempt to find the source of the apocalypse is like riding a rollercoaster in total darkness – you have no idea what comes next, is it a drop, a curve, or the lead up to something even worse. I was hooked from the first page to the last of this action-packed adventure in the post-apocalyptic world where Angela and Vaughn find themselves. I received an advance review ...more

WOW! Another great read and a great addition to the series. One of the best writers I have ever had the pleasure of following. It picks up right where Solitude left off. Once I started reading I could not put it down. It was so good that I accidentally pulled an almost all nighter reading it. The plot, the characters and web that Dean wove was just amazing. Can’t wait for Amplitude!

Excellent sequel, Dean's writing is going from strength to strenght

I have been eagerly awaiting the sequel to the excellent solitude. The direction the story takes is quite spectacular, the story arc takes off like the proverbial rocket in a direction I did not see coming. The science is solid, the prose is witty and well constructed and delivers an almighty sucker punch to the gut at one point. Dean has really knocked this one out of the park, cannot wait for part 3.

Outstanding continuation of Solitude!

I initially shyed away from this series due to some reviews (those bastards), but after reading Sector 64 (and loving it). I needed to try some more Dean M. Cole books!

I'm very happy that I took the plunge into Solitude and Multitude. I've been immersed in the series for the last week and couldn't put it down. I mainly listened to the audio books (outstanding performances!!!) But read some as well, switching back and forth.

I can't wait to read/listen the next

Dean... You kept me up way past my bedtime. Could not put this book down! Oh my gosh.. Each page turn, the excitement got better. Like your other books, your knowledge of science and your background as a pilot is wonderful. A movie in the making.. Awaiting the 3rd book.... Five stars my friend... Arthur

This book tried far too hard to be clever and as a result, the story became convoluted and the characters became nothing more than vehicles to drive the plot.

The first book was straight forward and better for it. Humanity is wiped out in a disaster (albeit a relatively complicated disaster) and the two survivors need to work together to rescue one of them who is stranded in space. This simplicity created enough room for the scientific concepts to unfold without tripping up the story. This book

Groundhogs and Aliens!

Any book like Solitude that leaves you with just two human beings alive on the planet watching a stream of buildings, vehicles and tanks flying over their heads is unlikely to have a follow-up that's all plain sailing! And so it proves here! Solitude had a unique perspective of two characters separated by space itself working together, it was a great premise and worked extremely well. Now that Angela and Vaughn are together it's a different chemistry and feel to the book. T

Solitude and Multitude are the first two novels in the Dimension Space Series by Dean M.Cole. Both are approximately 9-10 hours of listening, narrated by R.C.Bray and Julia Whelen, published by Candtor Press and Blue Heron Audio.

Plot: A wave of light emanates from CERN supercollider in Geneva, Switzerland and sweeps across the globe, annihilating all life forms. "Poof," no one is left. Animals, bird, bugs, all gone. Planes fall from the sky, trains ram into stations, boats plow into shore, cars,

This story excels in every possible multiverse!

I have been waiting for this sequel for nearly two years. To say that it was worth the wait is an understatement.

I listened to the audiobook version of this story and it was performed so well. Bob and Julia both did a fantastic job. I loved the new duet narration style used in the sequel compared to the dual style used in Solitude.

I can't go into as much detail with my review as I would like without giving out spoilers. So, let me just sum it up w

Slower pace than book 1, but still well written

These books have been edited well in that there are minimal distracting errors in the writing. The adventures of Vaughn and Brown continue, albeit in a rather repetitious way, as they fight to end the looping reality in which they are caught. The story loses momentum after the second journey to hell, but the author wisely condenses time to get the characters to a place where change can occur. Vaughn continues to take a back seat to Brown’s brillian

After what seemed like forever, I finally had the opportunity to read this second book of the Dimension Space series, Multitude. It did not disappoint. I do not want to leave any spoilers, but I will say that the mystery surrounding the events of the first book were mostly answered, but now we have a whole new mystery and "what now?!" leading us into the third. I love the post-apocalyptic genre. While Dean's take on it is not 100% new and original, there are really only so many ways one can skin ...more

Dream Sequence

Here's what I liked: It was inventive and different. It was exciting. It held my interest to the end of the book. Here's what I hated: When I took a college creative writing class (and proved once and for all that I was not a writer), the professor told me, "Good, but no more dream sequences." The reason was that you could write just about anything and not have to worry about cohesion, reality, timeline, or any of the cohesive guidelines that good writers struggle to perfect. Most
I picked this up immediately after reading Solitude, the first book in the series. After the adventure of getting a person off the ISS with no conceivable way of doing it plus the science of the large hadron collider, I was expecting more.

This descended quickly into defeat-the-aliens territory. Even with the added bonus of dimensional travel, I found myself saying to the book "it's different dimensions, not time travel!" When you find yourself yelling at an audiobook, something's wrong. This has

OK. So I really wasn’t a fan of this book which was disappointing because I really enjoyed the first one. I’m not sure exactly what it was about this one but it bored me (despite all the action going on). I returned the audiobook (even though the readers were excellent) because I wanted to skim the book instead of having to listen to every word. I ended up speed reading/skimming the last 50% on kindle. It had somewhat redeemed itself by the end and now I will admit I’m curious to see how this wr ...more

After reading the first in the series, I couldn't wait to read the second book. It certainly didn't disappoint. I really enjoyed the continued relationship growth between Angela and Vaughan. And, don't get me started on the numerous plot twists throughout the book. I certainly didn't see those coming. I really look forward to the next book in the series.

I am not sure that really helps. It is quite hard to explain how much I liked this book, without including any spoilers.
