Publisher's Summary

The first time Tucker saw the disk, his father disappeared into thin air. The Reverend Adrian Feye had climbed onto the roof to fix a loose shingle - and suddenly he was gone. An hour later, the Reverend came walking up the road, tattered and sunburned, bringing with him an unspeaking, yellow-haired, dark-eyed girl. He refused to say where he had been, instead declaring that there would be no more prayer in the Feye house: He had lost his faith.

Now Tucker’s family is unraveling. The Reverend spends hours brooding in his study. Tucker’s once warmhearted and loving mother withdraws from the world, claiming she doesn’t care to be watched by ghosts. And, above them, the unearthly disk comes and goes.

Then, one day, both of Tucker’s parents vanish. From the distant past to an even more distant and terrifying future, Tucker desperately searches for his parents - and discovers the astonishing secrets of the Klaatu diskos.

Good Book, Not Hard to follow for time travel readers

I enjoyed this audiobook. Joshua did a very good job, only having the usual drawbacks of single narrator stories (lack of voice diversity mainly) although none of his characters were grating to listen to. I’ve seen some complaints about the hard to follow story and one about a “very apparent dislike of Christianity”. For those confused about the story, remember it’s a trilogy. You aren’t supposed to know everything, and at the end you still probably wont. And if an ending subplot about an ultra conservative fundie Christian trying to rid the world of Autistic people and people with Alzheimers makes you in your faith a little offended, maybe take a chance at introspection.

Very anti-Christian

The author made his dislike of Chrisianity very apparent. Story started out interesting but the author was not able to conclude a story. It ends very abruptly.

Great story. Ever part of the book was no stop.

Can't wait to hear the other two. When I started this book I didn't know but now I can't put it down. The book is one of the few I've read that what me to read more and more.

Nothing wrong with the performance

What would have made The Obsidian Blade better?

a more interesting and less confusing story

Has The Obsidian Blade turned you off from other books in this genre?

not exactly. more cautious maybe.

What about Joshua Swanson’s performance did you like?

nice voice to listen to

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Obsidian Blade?

most - the time jumping was just too confusing

Any additional comments?

i've read a lot of sci fi with it's fair share of time travel but the disjointed aging of the characters meeting up with each other sometimes knowing each other and sometimes not was distracting and then the non answers from the med tech / advisors was just plain annoying.
