A Perfect Gem!
Three cheers for Ian’s inaugural work, it is simply spectacular. The writing is journeyman, the characters are as real as your next door neighbor, and the plot absolutely transfixes the readers, leaving them plied in a heap in the corner delirious with anticipation for the next installment. Top that off with his haunting narration and unearthly art work, and you cannot leave without a smile. HeavenField is undeniably among the top ten Podiobooks ever produced and is not to be missed by any legitimate scifi/fantasy or horror fan.
Liked this book, but want it to continue. Is this all there is? Well read and produced.
This is Rediculous! Finish the story!
Love the story, hate the wait. Which is why I only gave it 3 stars. I listened to the first book which left you hanging, and then waited 8 months for the next to come out, which also left you hanging, and now it's been over a year since the last installment of book 2 and still we wait. It is totally not worth it to listen to a story only to be left without a resolution for months or even years.
This is really quite frustrating and I would advise anyone who is interested in this podcast, which by the way IS a good story, to wait until it is complete before downloading it. How will you know when it's complete? Your guess is as good as mine.
