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.
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.
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 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.

I enjoyed this novel as it answers some of the unanswered questions from Bad Radio (but not all). Read it as a tie in to the game Fireteam: Zero. Read morePublished on April 13, 2014 by Donald Weed
