    On the planet Kelanni, life is cheap. With the aid of the fearsome "Keltar" enforcers in their flying cloaks, a ruthless invader is forcing the native people to mine the colloquially named "lodestone" - a substance from another universe with infinitely destructive power. The only ones who can stop him are a tiny girl with a fiery disposition, a former Keltar, a failed revolutionary, a musician and the mysterious creature, Boxx, who seems to speak only in riddles.

    PROS:
    interesting perspective of an alien world
    fun mix of sci-fi and fantasy
    makes you guess and come back for more


    CONS :
    poor world building with few details
    simplistic relationships between characters
    a recurrent abruptness between events

    narrator is monotone and slow...I had to play it at 2x speed

    Here on Earth, Danny North is still in high school, yet he holds in his heart and mind all the stolen outselves of 13 centuries of gatemages. The Families still want to kill him if they can’t control him - and they can’t control him; he is far too powerful. On Westil, Wad is now nearly powerless - he lost everything to Danny in their struggle. Even if he can survive the revenge of his enemies, he must still somehow make peace with the Gatemage Daniel North, for when Danny took that power from Loki, he also took responsibility for the Great Gates.

    Story

    As many of OSC's books, its too short (12hrs) we want more !
    this book is very well written, although it is not an epic series, it's more casual.
    all the threads tie in well together...AND YES I know he explained some things twice.
    In general, it flows well.. could you really ask for more ?

    the only things that make me stop listening to a book are :
    -illogism of action, not on par with actions from a real human being
    -the absence of an early hook or generalized boredom
    that wasn't the case here.
    Imo, your criticism is overplayed..you hold OSC in higher esteem than other authors and therefore, you are harsher with him than you normally would be.

    now, as for teenage pregnancy,...hahaha wow that hit a cord.
    I didn't see that as a problem while listening...but I can see why that would bother mothers. Honestly tho, think about it. I know a real 16yrs old couple DON'T think about babies, but with a godling ?? I think you underestimate the dictators that are our genes.

    here's the basics of Human nature :
    Men want women with solid hips to carry the baby and large breast to feed it.
    (marilyn monroe)
    Women want strong men to protect and provide
    (james bond)
    Power is the greatest aphrodisiac of all
    (Bill clinton)

    this is a fantasy book where godlings exist...how could these young women do anything but want their genes to join that deep and powerful pool.

    Anyway this is a great book, although too short and I for one enjoyed it !

    Seven years ago Kaylin fled the crime-riddled streets of Nightshade, knowing that something was after her. Children were being murdered— and all had the same odd markings that mysteriously appeared on her own skin….Since then, she's learned to read, she's learned to fight and she's become one of the vaunted Hawks who patrol and police the City of Elantra. Alongside the winged Aerians and the immortal Barrani, she's made a place for herself, far from the mean streets of her birth.

    author is illogical and irrational. the caracters are often OOC (out of caracter) from one chapter to the next. it's hard to read on, even though the story isnt bad.

    Frank W. Abagnale was one of the most daring conmen, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was 21. His story is now a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    It should have been a case like any other: a missing princess, a king willing to pay in gold for her return. But before he realizes it, private investigator Eddie LaCrosse, a slightly shopworn sword jockey with a talent for discretion and detection, is swept up in a web of mystery and deceit involving a brutally murdered royal heir, a queen accused of an unspeakable crime, and the tragic past he thought he'd left behind.

    Geoff and his friends live in Phocaea, a distant asteroid colony on the Solar System's frontier. They're your basic high-spirited young adults, enjoying such pastimes as hacking matter compilers to produce dancing skeletons that prance through the low-gee communal areas, using their rocket-bikes to salvage methane ice shrapnel that flies away when the colony brings in a big (and vital) rock of the stuff, and figuring out how to avoid the ubiquitous surveillance motes.
