A Trap for the Potentate

Michael Atamanov

The great hunt is over. In the end, Timothy managed to keep his invaluable prize. A victory? Perhaps. But
glory and adrenaline are very powerful narcotics, and tolerance builds quickly. Once deprived of them,
life immediately becomes gray and bleak. What’s more, his beautiful lover (to be more accurate, both of
them) is beginning to transparently hint that she could find herself a more interesting beau.
What is a talented player to do in this case? The solution suggests itself: rush headlong into the most
dangerous adventures, taking risks and walking the blade of a knife. Timothy must do everything in his
power to survive in places where making a clean escape is entirely impossible, delighting the viewers
with his utterly unique playing style and proving decisively to his lady (to be more accurate both of them),
that his previous success was no mere coincidence.
Will it be hard?
But old reliable friends are still by his side, and that means victory is possible!

Wow this was a fun book new twists, intrigue, deception, and of course brave little big ears in WAY over his head!

Pretty good book but felt very short. Didn't seem to have the substance the other 2 did but left on a huge cliffhanger! I can't believe I'm going to have to wait another forever for the next book!

The book is great. The characters are well developed, the action is great, the range of gods, corporate intrigue, AI growth, so many terrific disparate component the author brings together in a great action packed read. Highly recommend.

A poor book by Atamanov is better than most and this is not a poor book. Worth reading, but if you hate cliffhangers, you may want to wait until the next book is published.

I won’t spoil any of the great plot twists in the story (there are some really good ones) but there were multiple instances where I ended up saying to myself, “Oh, that’s cool! I didn’t see things going that way.” There are a couple places where there’s some magic wand waving to move the plot in a specific direction but the resulting stories were so interesting I didn’t mind. Overall, a great read. Even if you didn’t pick up book 2 in the series you can still read book 3. It does a good job of recapping things. Score: 8 out of 10
