    Travel to other planets is now a reality, and with overpopulation stretching the resources of Earth, the necessity of finding habitable worlds is growing ever more urgent. There’s a problem though—because the spaceships are slower than light, any communication between the exploring ships and Earth would take years.

    Tom and Pat are identical twin teenagers. As twins they’ve always been close, so close that it seemed like they could read each other’s minds.

    Overall

    This is one of my favorite RAH books and I was so excited to see an audio of it! Now they just need to make an audio of Tunnel in the Sky. But Time for the Stars is one of RAH best books it tells the age old story of two twins separated by the affects of relativistic space flight.

    Spat out by the sea, the boy lay on the rocks, as still as death. Even if he survived the day, he had no home. No memory. And no name. So begins the tale of the strange young boy, who having washed up on the shores of ancient Wales, is determined to find his real home and his true name. One day he will become the greatest wizard of all time, but he knows nothing of this now.

    Story

    T.A. Baron writes like the classics of previous generations like Tolkien. So the series starts off rather slow, but once Merlin starts his journey there are lots of adventures in store.

    The first book in the Lost Years of Merlin series has lots of action and adventure once you get to about the halfway point in the book, but even then a lot of the book is still just building the world and setting the stage for the rest of the series.

    I love Shim! He is such a fun character, and of course there is the ever present Trouble is a lot of fun too.

    Also a lot of people complain about the narration, but I rather liked it.

    Fed up with her wild behavior, 16-year-old Lex’s parents ship her off to upstate New York to live with her Uncle Mort for the summer, hoping that a few months of dirty farm work will whip her back into shape. But Uncle Mort’s true occupation is much dirtier than shoveling manure. He’s a Grim Reaper. And he’s going to teach Lex the family business. She quickly assimilates into the peculiar world of Croak, a town populated by reapers who deliver souls from this life to the next.

    The Croak Series is great, and the first book starts off really strong.

    I love the characters in this series, and I'm constantly laughing at and with them. Damico has done an amazing job of crafting a rich fantasy world of Grims. So many authors build off of worlds that others have started, but Damico's world is unique and original.

    I also think that Damico does a great job discussing the moral dilemmas that Lex goes through as she is introduced to the Grim Sphere and learns just who she is and what she has to do.

    I strongly recommend this series.

    The Valkyrie Kara stood alone against the Ragnarok horde on Earth to ensure that the Asgard race and Valhalla could escape. For 5,000 years she has fought and evaded the Ragnarok race on Earth, just waiting for her people to return. A human woman, Kate, joins her fight, showing as much conviction and valor as any Valkyrie. Their friendship quickly becomes something more as they hold the line on Earth in battle, to herald the return of the Asgard.

    Story

    Schubach takes the classic Norse mythology and twists it. Instead of the gods of Valhalla we have an alien race. Instead of the Valkyrie and the Einherjar preparing for an event called Ragnarok, they are fighting other aliens called Ragnarok. In the story the ancient norse mythology was actually all started by Kara, the main character, when she got drunk and told the tales of her people to a group of vikings.

    Though all the characters are a little larger than life, since they are super old and powerful aliens, they all still feel real. And Schubach adds plenty of humor into his books too that make the characters feel that much more real.

    I absolutely loved this book and the series just gets better with each book. I highly recommend it.

    I absolutely loved this book! It is so hard these days to find a good clean book that teaches some great morals, and has lovable characters and a strong plot. Easily five stars!

    One of the things I enjoyed about this book was the way that Ripple built the world. She never spent too much time explaining the way things were through narrative. It was almost all through dialogue. She made everything fit together well, and the world just seemed right.

    The other thing I really liked was how easy it was to relate to the characters. They felt real, and I am now very attached to them.

    I highly recommend this book! I couldn't put it down! Also superb job on the narration!

    The story of Island in the Sky centers around a young man, who, after brilliantly winning a space-related competition, requests a vacation on a space station as his prize. It is written with Arthur C. Clark's obvious knowledge of science, but moves at a page turning rate throughout the entire narrative. The short novel gives a realistic possibility of work and play in future space, heightened with constant excitement and action.

    Story

    This is a story about the setting, the world that the main character lives in. As many people have commented nothing happens in this book. This is not an action book. However, I still really enjoyed it!

    Clarke writes about a world where humans already have many space stations, colonies on the moon, and mars, and even exploration missions to mercury. Clarke clearly understands the way things work in space even though this was published in the 50's. Clarke describes the life of an average boy as he takes a couple weeks of vacation on a space station, not a vacation station though, but a working station.

    The title is a bit misleading … if I were to pick a similar title name I would call it Revealed or Unearthed. The fourth book in the Greywalker series reveals many things about Harper’s past and many things about why and how she become a Greywalker. Also some interesting plot lines brought up in the first book and practically dropped for the next two are finally brought up again and more is revealed.

    Also I’ve found that the grey is becoming normal, as normal as any paranormal thing can be. I am no longer confused by the oddities of the grey, and find that it makes sense.

    Finally, Harper gets to explore other parts of the world beside Seattle. She visits London! Full of great history and lots of paranormal activity in the grey!

    Also I had no problem with the narration. I think that Mia Barron does a great job!

Seattle's homeless are turning up dead and mutilated, and zombies have been seen stalking the Underground. Harper sets out to find the source, and soon comes to realize she's tangling with an ancient evil.

    Story

    So I've been trying to figure out why the Greywalker novels have such low reviews ... I think I've finally figured it out. Greywalker novels don't have anywhere near as much action as say the Dresden files, though I must also say that Kat Richardson doesn't have the humor the Bob the skull brings to Dresden either. Greywalker novels though are much more about the mystery than Dresden and as such have only a few action scenes.

    However, this is the best Greywalker novel yet. I really enjoyed Underground. A lot more information is found out about some of the more mysterious characters in the novel, and many interesting relationships spring up. Also the world that Kat creates about the underground world of Seattle is very interesting even if reminiscent of Dresden's Undertown. Great novel really strong mystery and the answer isn't as obvious as the other two. Looking forward to continuing the series.

    This second novel in the acclaimed Greywalker series finds PI Blaine Harper investigating a chilling case as Halloween approaches. After university researchers create an artificial poltergeist, the team leader suspects someone is faking the phenomena. When a student is murdered, Blaine is asked to investigate. Stepping into the spirit world, she realizes the haunting may be very real. But that doesn't necessarily mean a ghost did the killing.

    I liked this book better than the first one. Harper has started to understand the grey a little bit better, and she can actually use it to help her when interviewing people. I saw some people comment that Harper had gained greater knowledge of the grey between books with no explanation. That is true, but it only seems natural since this book picks up quite a bit after the first one ended.

    My only problem with this series is still the oddness of the "Grey." I'm still not sure I like what Kat Richardson has created, but it is definitely different.

    I still prefer the Dresden Files, but I do like this series better in one aspect. The Dresden Files stopped being quite as much a detective novel as an urban-fantasy novel. Where the greywalker series is still very much a detective novel.

    Go to school. Get good grades. Stay out of trouble. That’s the mandate for most kids. But Nick Gautier isn’t the average teenager. He’s a boy with a destiny not even he fully understands. And his first mandate is to stay alive while everyone, even his own father, tries to kill him. He’s learned to annihilate zombies and raise the dead, divination and clairvoyance, so why is learning to drive and keep a girlfriend so dang hard?

    The Chronicles of Nick keeps getting better. In this book, Kenyon continues to give more depth to her characters and they really seem to be actual people they all have that much history and depth to them.

    At the same time Nick is growing into his demon powers very fast. The question is can he control them or will they control him?

    Can't wait for the next book to come out.

    Nick Gautier’s day just keeps getting better and better. Yeah, he survived the zombie attacks, only to wake up and find himself enslaved to a world of shapeshifters and demons out to claim his soul. His new principal thinks he’s even more of a hoodlum than the last one, his coach is trying to recruit him to things he can’t even mention and the girl he’s not seeing, but is, has secrets that terrify him.

    I had mixed feelings about the first book in the Chronicles of Nick Series, but was interested enough to keep reading. Am I glad I did!

    This book is when the series actually starts to get interesting. The author really starts to flesh out a lot of the characters and you start to learn more about them, and Nick's own fate. Though Nick himself doesn't really see what's going on yet.

    This young adult urban fantasy at it's best! This series almost reminds me of Percy Jackson with an evil twist, i.e. the main character is the person who is supposed to destroy the world not save it.
