    It starts with a series of unexplained events. Earth tremors across the globe. Women being driven insane by their heightened and scrambled senses. And the world is starting to notice - the number one Twitter trend is #realfemmefatales. Governments and scientists are bewildered and silent. The world needs Torchwood, but there's not much of Torchwood left.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Torchwood for Torchwood fans. A fast-paced story that reads like watching an episode, including snarky commentary and sexual tensions. Who better to write Jack than John and Carole Barrowman? I would recommend this book to my friends who are followers of the series as a quick fix for withdrawals from one of the cleverest shows on television.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Torchwood: The Exodus Code?

    Without giving too much away, my favorite scene was with Gwen and Anwen in the grocery store... Because WHO HASN'T BEEN in that predicament? And now times 1,000!


    What about Daniel Pirrie’s performance did you like?

    Daniel Pirrie's performance was excellent. The only way the performance piece would have been improved is for John Barrowman to do it, but I understand that is completely unfair to Mr. Pirrie, who did a fantastic job that even hardcore fans like me can appreciate. Besides, he very competently switched between multiple characters, and, who knows, he may have been better at it than even Mr. Barrowman (blasphemy, I know)!


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

    I would have loved to just listen on and on, but I save my audiobooks for drive time and ironically grocery shopping. I used the Whispersync feature offered by Amazon and Audible, which allowed me to switch between listening and reading. I ultimately DID finish both book and audio in a few days.


    Any additional comments?

    For anyone who loves to read and finds it hard to secure time to do so, in general, I have to recommend the whispersync feature all the way! Often, the combination of book and audio narration costs little more than purchasing only one separately, so why not? I think authors and performers should be well compensated for their efforts because they bring so much entertainment and value through their endeavors.

    The Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One’s prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight. The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age. Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership. All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck....

    What about Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s performance did you like?

    I love these two performers. The two-narrator concept is fantastic for large epics with strong male and female characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Brandon Sanderson had the shoes of a giant to fill when finishing a masterwork of Robert Jordan...lots of hardcore fans to please and I think he did so brilliantly!

    In this sequel to the phenomenal New York Times best seller The Shadow Rising, Robert Jordan again plunges us into his extraordinarily rich, totally unforgettable world.

    Would you listen to The Fires of Heaven again? Why?

    The Fires of Heaven is entertaining and well paced. Having read the Wheel of Time series when each book originally came out, the Audible version was the best way to recall the story accurately and quickly.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Reading and Michael Kramer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The performances by Mr. Kramer and Ms. Reading continue to be superior. Having heard them read the previous books in the series, they deliver what can be considered performances more than simply reading text. Their pronunciations, character portrayals, and cultural accents are precisely what I envisioned when reading the books.
