I’m on the fence with this series. I remembered generally liking the first, but after giving this one a few hours, I found I had to stop and go relisten to the first one all over again (which is why it’s been so long since my last review!)… It turned out I remembered very little beyond the basic premise and some of the characters.
I feel like I have a hard time following exactly who is who and what they’re all doing. There’s a good six main characters, and the viewpoint flips between each one from chapter to chapter. Perhaps it’s the overall story, but there’s just something stopping me from actually getting into this as much as I should.
The story itself seems more thought-out than the first. Where the first sort of went from situation to situation, this has a larger arc at play that everyone is moving slowly towards.
The narration by Johnathan McClain was, as expected, fun and engaging as he always is. Less of the obvious retake in this one that plagued the first.
Will I continue with the series? Most likely, but I don’t think I’ll be rushing to drop a credit on it quite as quickly. Maybe I need to be in a specific mood to really dig into this. Right now though, it’s a struggle.
