Race against time continues as Morgan and Sarah run for their lives in this second book of the “Rise to Omniscience” by Aaron Oster. Morgan and Sarah run toward east this time in order to save themselves and the rest of the state from the conflict of war. But the escape is not easy for these poor souls as they have many enemies in their tales. Prince Katherine and Lord Simon want both of them dead at any rate for their personal issues.
We don’t see heroes rising in this part which is not seen in Somerset and Supermage as Aaron usually make the main character rise at the climax. But here it’s just all about escaping and saving your skin.
Both the characters make different decisions for themselves but there is nothing related to their states or the people of the country thus the story could be treated as a subjective nature. Also, the plot is limited which squeezes the horizon the novel.
Toward the end, however, the sudden ultimatum from a powerful source changes the whole landscape of this hide and seeks drama. Morgan too understands that running would not prove fruitful at all; the only solution for them is to return to their throne and fight.
Fighting does not prove to be a good solution in most cases but in their condition, this is the only solution they are left within the arsenal.
Doug Tisdale Jr.’s narration is slow at the start and you tend to get bored in the first two or three pages but after that, the narration gets a nice kick. Still, the narration fails to provide the activeness that was needed but overall the words are clearly uttered and understandable.

I agree about the narrator. It is a good story and I’m enjoying it, however once again we see a shorter book try to hide that fact by using short segments (in this case 9:00). That takes away from the product. The first book was OK. Never should these dinky sized breaks be used. Along with “covering” for the length, the concept is flawed for audiobooks. It stems from the concept of short chapters for books, yet it does not work for audiobooks. It is annoying, the breaks are not at chapters, and to me it screams it is a short book. Fortunately the author can correct this with book three. Rock On!
I will fix it
