    Which character – as performed by Paul Boehmer – was your favorite?

    Gregor and. Boots


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    For sure great story


    Any additional comments?

    This book is awesome but the war scenes and some scenes may not be for kids they are quite violent and descriptive. So this may be a no no if you don't let your kids watch violent bloody movies, it has good character development and it's been written in a typical suzanne Collins style. Good read

    Story

    this a really good book with great imagery and action and a little romance too. The only thing i didn't like about it is the story had a harry potter/young adult book feel to it but its not for kids because there are some pretty descriptive sex scenes in the book. Other than that its ok. Enjoy

    The world of Faerie never disappeared: it merely went into hiding, continuing to exist parallel to our own. Secrecy is the key to Faerie’s survival—but no secret can be kept forever, and when the fae and mortal worlds collide, changelings are born. Half-human, half-fae, outsiders from birth, these second-class children of Faerie spend their lives fighting for the respect of their immortal relations.

    Prince Roger MacClintock, Tertiary Heir to the Throne of Man, was a spoiled rotten, arrogant, whiny, thoroughly useless young pain in the butt. But that was before an assassination attempt marooned the Royal Brat and his bodyguards on the planet Marduk, and before they had to march half way around the entire planet, through 120-degree heat and five-hour rainstorms in jungles full of damnbeasts, capetoads, killerpillars, and atul-grak, not to mention hostile peoples, to make their way back to port.

    Story

    The first books was good it had a military theme but it somehow fit into the book without being overwhelming. This one takes it to the next level. About 60% of the book is about guns and explosives i.e. types,what they do and. how they work. Then there are lessons (disguised as conversations ) about battle techniques, army leadership techniques and styles, troop training....pretty much anything and everything related to guns, the army, soldiers and battles this also includes "lessons" in older fighting techniques. Add on to that 25% lessons in economics and what's left is character and story development that could have been done in 5 hours not 17. I am definately returning this book.

    They say that the Thorn of Camorr can beat anyone in a fight. They say he steals from the rich and gives to the poor. They say he's part man, part myth, and mostly street-corner rumor. And they are wrong on every count. Only averagely tall, slender, and god-awful with a sword, Locke Lamora is the fabled Thorn, and the greatest weapons at his disposal are his wit and cunning. He steals from the rich - they're the only ones worth stealing from - but the poor can go steal for themselves.

    This was actually quite entertaining and funny but it took about 5 hours for the story to pick up and once it did it was fun. So if you can hand in there you won't be disappointed

    The story is a bit slow but it gets good once it picks up. Some of the characters are hard to relate to and it's also a bit gory in some parts but overall it's ok.

    When Auraya was chosen to become a priestess, she could never have believed that a mere 10 years later she would be one of the White, the gods' most powerful servants. Sadly, Auraya has little time to adapt to the exceptional powers gifted her by the gods. Mysterious black-clad sorcerers from the south plague the land, and rumours reach the White of an army being raised. Auraya and her new colleagues work tirelessly to seal alliances and unite the northern continent under their banner, but time is running out.

    Where does Priestess of the White rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I could not put this book down. I has a great storyline and Trudi does a good job giving a picture to the world it is set in without being boring about it. Just downloading the next one now can wait for more.
