♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

It Has Begun by Starset  --If a book or series has anything to do with outer space, aliens, or just persevering…than Starset wrote the soundtrack for it.  This lyric video is awesome…like Themis herself is stomping around.♫

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

I wished for this on Netgalley, right after I did that; I thought I really would rather listen to this on Audio.  Since I listened to the first book in the series, Sleeping Giants, on Audio and it was one of the best audiobooks ever.  I figured I wouldn't actually win the chance to read this one, and I was okay with that…guess what…I won.  I never win anything.

I missed the full cast of characters giving each person their own voice, but I still was freaking totally engaged in this story.  It Rocks!  I'm fairly certain I will still have to listen to this on Audio, maybe, right before the 3rd book comes out.  Overall, I'm not disappointed I won this and had the opportunity to read this before it releases in April 2017.

There is some buzz out there about Sony Pictures adapting this series to film.  I really hope it happens, because it will rock as a movie series.  I also fervently hope they make it everything that it can be…
