Summary

The Shadowmaster is back... whether you wanted him to be or not!

Jackson Blackwell, The Shadowmaster, is in over his head this time. After his last adventure, where he tore fantasy novels a new one, Jackson has to deal with the repercussions of angry gods, angrier conspirators, and the wrath of his pregnant girlfriend!

(I know... actual consequences in a comedy/action series? How avant-garde! - I think. Okay look, I really don't know what that means. I've always just wanted to say it and I'm too lazy to look it up.)

Thanks to a godly decree and a crafty clause, Jackson has been banished from his home. And the only universe kindly enough to take him in is one infested with comic-book-style superheroes and supervillains. A perfect place to cause mayhem, right? Well, it wouldn't be much of a book if it were.

Comics don't play by the rules, and Jackson has been tasked to do something unique. Whatever is a villain to do?

Follow the adventure of Jackson Blackwell as he attempts to manipulate his way back to the top while dealing with all manner of dark detectives, godly aliens, expensive power suits, and the most daunting challenge of all... looming parenthood.

This genre is new and incredible with its truthfulness with incredible honesty proving that all can be seen as you wish.


Jeffrey Kafer is one of the best narrator ever.

My recommendations !!!

I am the Shadowmaster, fear me!!

Jackson Blackwell, The Shadowmaster, is again up to to his neck in trouble, as he ends up exiled from his own dimension to the comic realm. Good follow up to book one, with Jackson at his evil cunning best.

Well narrated by Jeffrey Kafer, as he is also drawn into the story.

Great book... Much laughs

This book is just as good as the first if not better... The last line of the epilogue had me in stitches. Brilliant!

Easy fun

Good fun, easy listening, great tonic if you've just listened to something heavy going. Annoying repetition of phrases like "Gods above and below" every other paragraph (not an exaggeration) and the main character vocalising "SIGH" really grate.

GOOD BOOK

I have over 300 audible titles and I have to say that the narration and performance of this book is one of the best I've heard. It's a compelling universe with a great story and awesome characters

It's self aware and I love it.

The narration is on point. The tropes are once again scrutinised and filltered through parody. This is a good sequel I can't wait to read the next book then no doubt listen to it.

Made me laugh out loud.

Really regional story, I just couldn't stop listening. I was absolutely gutted to discover the third installment wasn't available yet.
