    Introducing… Ronald Reagan Live! Listen to live radio broadcast recordings of former President Ronald Reagan at his political best. Spanning several historical decades, Reagan's 1,000+ radio deliveries offered commentary on the spectrum of domestic, national, and international events that occurred throughout his lifetime, both prior to and during his unprecedented three-term presidency.

    I miss having President Ronald Reagan as my President. He was a great leader and visionary who loved his Country and had the courage to beleive that we as a people could become Great. You don't manage a country. You Lead!

    Long ago, so the Storyteller claimed, the evil god Torak sought dominion and drove men and Gods to war. But Belgrath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe. That was only a story, and Garion did not believe in magic dooms, even though the man without a shadow had haunted him for years.

    Tuck Underbank is a Warrow -- think a hobbit with shoes and "large jewel-like eyes" -- living in the peaceful Boskydells. When an unnaturally cold winter strikes and the evil Modru threatens the world, he and a number of his fellow Thornwalkers go to the High King's aid. But a vast expanse of lightless blizzard called the Dimmendark (sounds bad, doesn't it?) is spreading over the land, and Tuck soon finds that the "dark tide" is going to swamp them all.

    Story

    When I seen that Cameron Beierle was the narrator of this book I had to give this book a listen. To those of you who have already read or listen to the Belgarion series which Mr. Beierle narrates, this book may seem a bit weak, thats being kind. But I am comparing Dennis L. McKieman's book to the best epic ever written. David Eddings ten book series is the greatest work of fantasy ever written and Mr. Beierle brought those characters to life. If you have not read the Belgarion and the Mallorean series do so right now. Don't just get it from the library. Buy it and keep it safe. It's on Audible!!! ps. Whose this Tolkien guy? jk

    When HMS Reliant captures a French frigate and seizes its precious cargo - an unhatched dragon egg - fate sweeps Captain Will Laurence from his seafaring life into an uncertain future and an unexpected kinship with a most extraordinary creature. Thrust into the rarified world of the Aerial Corps as master of the dragon Temeraire, he will face a crash course in the daring tactics of airborne battle.

    Overall

    Naomi Novik is a wonderful story teller with a great imagination. She reminds me of Bernard Cornwell with her mixture of historical events and fictional characters that are so masterfully combined that the reality of our past may be forever changed. Have you ever thought of co-writing a book with Bernard Cornwell? Maybe titled Sharpes Dragons!
