The Deaths of TAO 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 12 reviews.

The book was good until the last few chapters. Then, it seemed like the author was phoning it in. The action sequences and dialogue between host an Quasing were extremely drawn out, and there were significantly more spelling errors.

Another fun ride with Roan and the Quasing. ‘The Deaths of Tao’ is full of non-stop action with a bit of humor and some well thought out writing mixed in. There are parts where I was laughing out loud right after holding my breath during a fight scene. The plot is interesting and well thought out I couldn’t get enough. On to book 3 in the series!

I am enjoying this reading series. It has held my interest by keeping in me in suspense in nearly every chapter. I am looking forward to see how our world turns out!

Having not read the first book in this series made this book all that more impressive to me. I was coming to the world, characters, and setting completely fresh and the author effortless made me aware of everything that I needed to know to enjoy the story. This is one of the things many authors struggle with when they write series. I really loved the characters in this book, both the good guys and the bad guys. They all were very real and relatable. For a science fiction novel, this book was incredibly realistic and certainly an exciting read for any reading it seriously. I truly cannot wait to read the further adventures of Tao, The Prophus, and The Genjix. My only problem with the book was that it had a bit of a slow start and for a sequel this is doubly strange. But shortly afterward it certainly found a descent, albeit slow pace. The story and characters were good enough to save it from it’s pacing. On the whole the book was very good and I can’t wait to read the next one.
