Summary

Discover The Atlas Paradox, the electric dark academia sequel to viral sensation The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake—a No.1 Sunday Times bestseller. Inside the Alexandrian Society alliances will be tested, hearts will be broken and all must pick a side.

Six magicians were offered the opportunity of a lifetime.

Five are now members of the Society.

And two paths lie before them.

In this thrilling next instalment, the secret society of Alexandrians is unmasked. Its newest recruits realize the institute is capable of raw world-changing power. It’s also headed by a man with plans to change life as we know it—and these are already under way. But the cost of this knowledge is as high as the price of power, and each initiate must choose which faction to follow. Yet as events gather momentum and dangers multiply, which of their alliances will hold? Can friendships hold true and are enemies quite what they seem?

dissapointing

The story picked up from where the first book finished, but didn't really go anywhere. Left with more questions than answers, Sometimes the different voices are hard to understand, particularly in the car.

Good plot, poor quality audio

Really poor sound quality, a lot of the characters voices are muffled making it almost impossible to listen to at a consistent volume

The middle

This is definitely the middle book aka filler for the finale. Ok nevertheless. And let’s be honest Tristan’s voice is bloody annoying.

audio issues

Very enjoyable story and I loved that there was a different narrator for each character but 2 of them were so hard to listen to. every time they pronounced consonants it was so ear piercing to the point it hurt to listen to at times.
I still very much enjoyed the book though.

Loved it!

Loved the quality of the narration. I feel like the story was too long and, at times, boring. But I still really enjoyed the book.
