    All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows. While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.

    This was an amazing story to listen to! I am excited to listen to the next 2 books! The writing was great and it was easy to picture everything as the author did a great job covering all the details! The narrator took some time to get used because her voice sounds more child like than teenage, but it didn't bother me as much as some other narrators, and she did great voices for the other characters. I highly recommend this book and consequently the series!

    In this third audiobook in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they're plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth. Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl trapped on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she's being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she's just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

    What did you love best about Cinder?

    This is an amazing take on a classic story! You think you know what's going to happen because you've seen every movie about Cinderella, and read every book, but this one will leave you entertained and captivated until the very end!


    What other book might you compare Cinder to and why?

    I can't compare it to any, not even the original Cinderella story compares!


    What about Rebecca Soler’s performance did you like?

    She is very easy to listen to, she conveys all the emotions perfectly. I hope she reads for every sequel to this series!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed, I cried, I yelled at my speakers like a lunatic!


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there are many more to come!

    It was once named America, but now it is just "the Republic". Following the worldwide implementation of a UN-led program called Agenda 21, the once-proud people of America have become obedient residents who live in barren, brutal Compounds and serve the autocratic, merciless Authorities. Citizens mainly keep their heads down and their mouths shut - but Emmeline is different. When the Authorities took her mother away, she started questioning the world around her.

    What would have made METAtropolis better?

    So boring, I couldn't even listen very long before I shut it off because it couldn't even retain my attention. Call it a loss and strike it from your books offered!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not this book!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Dull, boring.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from METAtropolis?

    All of it!


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your money or credits on this one!
