With a five-minute recap of Part 1, this audiobook forges ahead with the three dominant story lines of the series. Renee Montoya desperately attempts to save her dying friend, Vic, while Black Adam wrestles with his inner demons as he tries to become the hero his new wife wants him to be. Booster Gold has returned from the dead with full knowledge of the impending threat to Earth. While story lines previously jumped around from track to track, now much longer periods are devoted to particular story lines (Booster Gold's disappears for a large chunk of the story). This audio production has a great formula mix of sound effects, music and character voices. The sound effects and music are top-notch and smoothly integrated. Actors' voices genuinely reflect the characters, and Richard Rohan's deep and animated voice drives the narrative and works phenomenally for action adventures. An Ace paperback. (Mar.)
