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

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

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.

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

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!

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

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.

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

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

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 was fortunate enough to be an advanced reader for Mr. Cole and received a draft copy to review before release.
Having read the Sector 64 series I was eager to see how he handled a 'last man on Earth' situation, so purchased Solitude and read that before diving into Multitude.

Diving in is the correct term - the storyline, characters, situation, and pace are together a completely immersive package. For the hard SF reader there is a good amount of technical content, and as a good SF story it does

Good story; some issues

The second book in this series is as engaging as the first. But you’ll have to get past the idiocy of the main male character. An amazing book would be the same story told from Angela’s point of view. In that book I imagine her moments of distractedness are explained by her having to process being stuck alone in the world with an unlikeable stereotype of a “man” derived solely from repeated watching of 1950s television and John Wayne movies. Still, I’ll read the next one —

Dean has taken his love of taking to the air and soared to new heights. This series builds such strong characters (mind you, even though it is focused on 2 people.) It paints vivid pictures of places, I think, a lot of us can relate to. The locations used are places I've been lucky enough to go to or be near. His writing flows and weaves a story that engages the reader. The harrowing moments cause the pulse to quicken. The personal moments draw you in and make you feel the connection. I'm on the ...more

Mr cole does it again

This book was truly mesmerising from start to finish, it was hard to put down right from the start. Cannot wait for the third one, very clever use of time and space especially seeing how the science fiction actually ties in with actual science, places and events that could very well happen if ones mind was so inclined to think that way. My mind definitely works that way and was utterly enthralled as my inner geek was fed copious amounts of science and action

Truly a good read

Had a hard time even finishing this one. The first book was ok, not good, but it at least kept me engaged. This book, the conclusion to the first was just bad. The characters are all over the place, they say stuff that is barely believable. The entire plot, even as fiction is barely believable and most of what the main characters do is beyond believable. So many things are just silly, making no sense at all.

A great adventure

While the action *appears* to drag in parts, at the end it seemed more an artifact of the characters' frustrations - without giving anything away - you'll just have to trust me. No matter how often I thought, just get on with it, I still cared about what happened to these characters and kept reading. And there's some resolution at the end but still a cliffhanger, making me wish Book Three was already in publication.

More fun. Time loops, robots with four arms, fish like aliens, and many worlds being by vicious aliens because of a black hole and different dimensions. Wow, that's a lot and there is much more, lots of fun although at times too convoluted
