- Book 3: Aurora Wasteland Literary Universe
The most compelling thing about The Axe is the concept. In execution, it felt all over the place as it jumped from one character’s perspective to another.
It’s the third book in the Aurora Wasteland literary universe that I’ve read and it’s the one I enjoy the least. While they all work as standalone novels, the other two had subtle nods and similarities that made it clear they were from the same universe. While The Axe had very little of that. More than anything, it left me confused over how it fits into the world.
I went into this book excited, after having listened to Tethered and Brightness Falls. While this book was enjoyable overall, it really didn’t capture my attention like the other two did.
The narration was excellent, the narrator made all of the characters feel alive and real. There weren’t any Audible hiccups which is always a nice thing.
Overall, I recommend the book, but it’s nothing really special.
