    Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are in Mexico, when they come upon a remarkable discovery - the skeleton of a man clutching an ancient sealed pot, and within the pot, a Mayan book, larger than anyone has ever seen. The book contains astonishing information about the Mayans, about their cities, and about mankind itself. The secrets are so powerful that some people would do anything to possess them - as the Fargos are about to find out. Before their adventure is done, many men and women will die for that book - and Sam and Remi may just be among them.

    If you could sum up The Mayan Secrets in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, reviting, unpredictible.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    You never know what going to happen in the next chapter. The adventure changes and keeps you wanting more.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I really like Brick's performance. The way he reads the book makes you feel you are right with him, seeing the story as though you are there.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Sam got his friends to help the people of the village.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Custer writes another Fargo book soon.

    Though forced to fight for the hated British, Morgan MacKinnon would no more betray the men he leads than slit his own throat - not even when he was captured by the French and threatened with an agonizing death by fire at the hands of their Abenaki allies. Only the look of innocent longing in the eyes of a convent-bred French lass could make him question his vow to escape and return to the Rangers. And soon the sweet passion he awoke in Amalie had him cursing the war that forced him to choose between upholding his honor and pledging himself to the woman he loves.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Untamed to be better than the print version?

    Never read the book


    What did you like best about this story?

    How well it was written. The person reading the book put some much feeling into the reading that you came in vision all that is happening is real. This is the first one I have listen to and when I finished it a bought the other two right away. The love they have for each other is like no other book I have read. The history of the war is true to all the history books I have taught from. If you don't like hot sex scenes, the ones is this book aren't to graphic but you can feel the passion of love making. I will read this book again when I need to know that there is good in the world no matter how many wars have been waged in the world.


    Which character – as performed by Kaleo Griffith – was your favorite?

    Cameron. He is a true fighter. I have had many on my family in wars I and I believe that Cameron fights just like any our military men and women fight today


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    True men and women fight for their county and family and for what is right.


    Any additional comments?

    I will read this book again and maybe buy the book for my friends to read. So they will know why military family stand behind their sons, daughters and family to keep our country free.

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

    What does Allan Corduner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The emontion in his reading.


    If you could rename The Book Thief, what would you call it?

    I would not change the title.


    Any additional comments?

    A thrill-seeking Harvard linguistics professor and an ultrasecret branch of the Catholic Church go head-to-head in a race to uncover the secrets of the lost city of Atlantis. The ruins of the technologically-advanced, eerily-enigmatic ancient civilization promise their discoverer fame, fortune, and power... but hold earth-shattering secrets about the origin of man.
