"Liar's Harvest", the second book in Langlois's Emergent Earth series, continues the adventure begun in "Bad Radio", as the not-quite human Abe and his friends must save the world again. Nonstop action, just enough gore, and the flawed heroes make this an interesting read. To me, this series is vaguely reminiscent of the later books of F. Paul Wilson's Repairman Jack series. Hopefully the author takes that as the compliment that it's meant at. "Liar's Harvest" moves quickly with no breaks in the action -- my only regret is reading it so soon after its release, and now having to wait for the next installment.

If you haven't read "Bad Radio", I highly recommend reading it before tackling "Liar's Harvest". "Liar's Harvest" features new antagonists, but contains frequent references to the events on the first book, and the second book will make a lot more sense if you understand how Abe became what he is.

I gave Michael Langlois' debut novel and first in this Emergent Earth series, Bad Radio, high praise based on the fact that, for an independent work, it was highly polished. Unfortunately, Mr. Langlois seems to have regressed in that area, as I found the text fraught with editorial lapses. Luckily the story itself carries the day, making up for a number of small problems.

The same characters were present for this follow-up to Bad Radio, but the introduction to the story was a little jarring, as if the Bad Radio manuscript had simply been ripped in half. Even in well-established and commercially successful literary franchises the author typically will briefly reintroduce the major players in subsequent volumes of the series; not so here, where the action pretty much picks right up where it left off.

The other niggling deficiency for me was that this story veers away from the previous villain, which I felt was rich with potential for followup, and introduces a new source of conflict, with yet another god from another dimension. This suggests that potential future additions to the series will become formulaic - powerful being from nether dimension wreaks havoc, Abe and company clean up - without ever really developing the characters further. And that's probably the root of the deficiencies of this book; the characters, while admirably acquitting themselves in terms of the action, didn't really seem to grow.

On a positive note, the story remains intriguing, the action riveting, and the author's attention to detail is superb. I hope that a third book in the Emergent Earth series is forthcoming.

I think it must be fairly unusual for an author's third book to be not as good as his first two. I loved Bad Radio, and loved Walker even more.

Liar's Harvest is OK. It continues on the story of Abe and gives us some clues as to why the Emergent Earth is emerging. But I finished the book a few days ago and I'm fairly hard-pressed to actually remember that much detail about it. That's opposed to Bad Radio that stayed with me for quite a long time.

The story seemed a bit too formulaic, and if I hadn't developed empathy for the main protagonists in Bad Radio, I think I would have had a hard time connecting with them in Liar's Harvest.

I'll be curious to see what Langlois' next book is like, and I'll still buy it. The summary is, I think, that when the next book comes out, I'll find that I could have skipped Liar's Harvest and not lost anything from the overall story.

I took the challenge and read this second book as well. Once again the plot was nail biting and things got very grim for the main characters. There was a lot of angst over the fatal decision made by one of the characters, which over-shadowed most of the book.

I don't normally read books of this genre, as I usually find them too stressful. But this writer throws in a little hope and a lot of determination into the characters. Enough to keep me reading. It is far enough removed from reality, not to give me nightmares.

This book ends in a place where things have ended reasonably well, but I don't think I could handle another delve into the dark realms of the author's imagination by reading a third book in this series. There were a few typos in this book, but not enough to distract me from the story.

A good continuation to Bad Radio - some of the same people are present, such as Abe, Anne, Chuck, Leon, and Henry, but then you also meet new faces to keep the story interesting. Abe's powers are still increasing and changing who he is as a person, and he wants to hide that fact from the people he has grown to care for. But ultimately, Abe & Company will need to save the town from an evil released by selfishness, and they learn more about the people playing the strings behind the events in this story and in Belmont.

This is the second book in a series, and it flows well with the first one that came out. Interesting characters, a new world order to discover, and we find out things are no where like what we think they are appearing to be. Supernatural and the normal all are turned upside down and inside out. An exemplary hero, with strong secondary players filling in the rest of the roles. Am looking forward to the next one in the series and seeing where the story takes Abe, Anne, Chuck, Henry, and Leon.
