    The faerie Magpie Windwitch, granddaughter of the West Wind, flies over the ocean with her small flock of crows. Ill-advised sailors all too often open bottles floating near their ships, and Magpie has vowed to recapture the devils released upon the world from their sea-borne containers. But there is one bottle in which a great menace was trapped by the ancient Djinn King, and when this bottle is opened, the evil of the Blackbringer threatens to engulf the world.

    Story

    Don't turn away because this is a kids book. What an awesome story! I absolutely loved it and read it straight through.
    Davina Porter is a MASTER at the narration. This is a perfect book to read with your kids AND for those into fantasy. And fans of D. Porter will most definitely not be disappointed.
    Buy it.

    Anderson Lake is a company man, AgriGen's Calorie Man in Thailand. Under cover as a factory manager, Anderson combs Bangkok's street markets in search of foodstuffs thought to be extinct, hoping to reap the bounty of history's lost calories. There, he encounters Emiko...Emiko is the Windup Girl, a strange and beautiful creature. One of the New People, Emiko is not human; instead, she is an engineered being, creche-grown and programmed to satisfy the decadent whims of a Kyoto businessman.

    Overall

    Yes, this book starts out very slow...I had to rewind a number of times the first few chapters because I was daydreaming through them...but hang in there it gets good.
    I love the character Emiko. And the Asian accents aren't bad.
    If you are into post apocalyptic fiction and books such as Oryx and Crake, this is a must-read.

    Twice Claire has used an ancient stone circle to travel back to the 18th century. The first time she found love with a Scottish warrior but had to return to the 1940s to save their unborn child. The second time, 20 years later, she reunited with her lost love but had to leave behind the daughter that he would never see. Now Brianna, from her 1960s vantage point, has found a disturbing obituary and will risk everything in an attempt to change history.

    Story

    I've been searching for a series for three years to catch my interest like this!......and audible.com makes her books affordable.
    You really must start at the begining...the first book draws you in and explains a lot...you instantly fall in love with the characters.
    The books are lengthy, but you won't mind. I read the first in three days.
