His life has never been his own.
Just finished this incredible journey of Marten’s life… we met him in Mildred’s resistance, and we have seen him through all the Network series and saga, and some of the Novellas, but this intimate look into some of his most cherished memories… has been such a joy to read. Marten is a character that teaches through example that choosing the right thing is not always popular or what makes us happy in the now, but no good deed goes unrewarded… one must find a balance, keep doing the right thing, choices are not always easy, but they are not always hard either…. Thank you Katie J Cross for a lovely read, and for the life lessons you let Marten teach us…
What can you say about a man who gives his heart to a woman and his network? A lot to be honest!! Marten is a pillar of strength to all who know him. He's the one you can go to for advice and a hug! Don't miss this beautiful ending to a wonderful series!!!
We have loved this man since Mildred’s Resistance, and his story makes you love him even more. This book tells of his deep love for Mildred and for the son he couldn’t raise. This book tugs at your heartstrings, you will love this last book in the Network Saga. Thanks Katie for listening to Jane.
Reading Marten felt like i was finally getting to sit down with that strong, unassuming foundational character of Alkarra. I loved hearing about life through his eyes, feels and heart. And what a pleasure to travel back in time to where it all began for so many of my favourites. This is a great companion to the series and the collection of Alkarra stories.
Just when you think you couldn't love Marten anymore than you already do..you can! We get to see just why he's the perfect mam to have in your life. Tough choices and emotional decisions show us what a true human (witch) he is. He's the perfect father, grandfather, and the uncle I wish I had. You do not want to miss this beautiful story! It's the fitting way to end our journey through the Network Saga. Well done Katie!!
