    Since his mother’s death six years ago, Carter Kane has been living out of a suitcase, traveling the globe with his father, the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane. But while Carter’s been homeschooled, his younger sister, Sadie, has been living with their grandparents in London. Sadie has just what Carter wants — school friends and a chance at a “normal” life.

    Overall

    After thoroughly enjoying Riordan's Percy Jackson series, and have been a huge fan of Katherine Kellgren's narration in the Bloody Jack series, I knew this book was going to be great and I wasn't disappointed. The format of banter between siblings was delightful and added humor to tense moments. The suspense was prickly, the plot well thought out with enough detail to cast mental images very well! I can't wait for the next one to come out! Like LA Meyer's Bloody Jack series, Riordan's books are the few that I listen to more than once!

    The Bible is filled with examples of an intimate God, a God keenly interested in connecting with ordinary people. He promises to be with us. He says he will personally guide us. Yet somehow, intimacy with God eludes us. Caught up in the mainstream of life, we know we're missing something vital. But how do we attain it?

    Overall

    I'm on my third listen and I still laugh at the funny parts and want to pause the playback to make notes at the parts that really touch me. John Ortberg is, as always, an excellent teacher. His insights and comparisons to every day life make what he has to say so relevant to today's society and lifestyle. He is a gift! Where's Waldo? He's closer than you think ...
