    In Wyoming, a little girl reads people’s darkest secrets. In New York, a man sensing patterns in the stock market racks up $300 billion. In Chicago, a woman can go invisible. They’re called "brilliants," and since 1980, one percent of people have been born this way. Nick Cooper is among them; a federal agent, Cooper has gifts rendering him exceptional at hunting terrorists. His latest target may be the most dangerous man alive, a brilliant drenched in blood and intent on provoking civil war. But to catch him, Cooper will have to violate everything he believes in.

    Griffin has a secret. It's a secret that he's sworn to his parents to keep, and never tell. Griffin is a Jumper: a person who can teleport to any place he has ever been. He knows that the men who killed his parents were looking for him, and he must never let them find him. Griffin has only two goals: to survive, and to kill the people who want him dead. And a jumper bent on revenge is not going to let anything stand in his way.

    Cent can teleport. So can her parents, but they are the only people in the world who can. This is not as great as you might think it would be - sure, you can go shopping in Japan and then have tea in London, but it's hard to keep a secret like that. And there are people, dangerous people, who work for governments and have guns, who want to make you do just this one thing for them. And when you're a teenage girl things get even more complicated. High school. Boys. Global climate change, refugees, and genocide. Orbital mechanics.

    A month has passed since Martin helped to defeat the evil programmer Jimmy, and things couldn't be going better. Except for his love life, that is. Feeling distant and lost, Gwen has journeyed to Atlantis, a tolerant and benevolent kingdom governed by the Sorceresses, and a place known to be a safe haven to all female time-travelers.

    If you could sum up Mercy Blade in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting cajun fun.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    New orlean setting really is nice. The characters are well introduced, and really crazy feeling in the book.


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

    Her southern accent really makes the story.


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

    No

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    What made the experience of listening to Hounded the most enjoyable?

    I had been searching for a book as entertaining as the Dresden files for months. This book far surpasses my expectations.( I was losing hope)
    The characters are built extremely well, and the flow of the story is beautiful. I think the art of the narrator definitely increases the potency of the story.


    What other book might you compare Hounded to and why?

    Dresden files


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


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

    yes, I wanted to listen to this straight through although I gobbled it up in today's.
