STAR RATINGS GUIDE

Riddle Wraps A Mystery Inside An Enigma

THE BIRDICT

💛 Secrets, mysteries and forgotten truths are tangled together in the latest offering from the sci-fi sage himself, A. G Riddle. The story unpicks each one, dropping clues like breadcrumbs, enlightening the listener little by little. Then it drops a final reveal like the ultimate mic drop.

💚 I loved that there were new discoveries at every turn as well as a constant doubt as to the trustworthiness of characters. I was kept on my toes. I’m also fascinated by the concept of AI and its relationship with humanity.

💙 There was a good mix of characters whose relationships developed well along the way.

❤️️ Having read pretty much everything Mr Riddle has written, this is an exciting new world that fits in perfectly with his other creations.

💙 There’s more than a bit of Asimov in this story. And if you enjoy this, check out Riddle’s other works. Another book this brings to mind is Zero Hour by Eamon Ambrose, another robots/humans frolic.

Big thanks to NetGalley and Recorded Books for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 This was my first John Skelley listen. He has a thoughtful, authoritative air that suited the story. Very much the overseeing, wise narrator.

🎧 This was an easy listen. Whilst being detailed, it was easy to pick up and put down. A nice bit of escapism while going about my day.

Not spoiling this one. I will say it's a jaw dropper though.

The Extinction Trials

THE BLURB

The end…is only the beginning.

After a mysterious global event known only as “The Change”, six strangers wake up in an underground research facility where they learn that they’re part of the Extinction Trials - a scientific experiment to restart the human race.

But the Extinction Trials harbors a very big secret.

And so does the world outside.
