    Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights. But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is easy to recommend to Star Wars and Sci-Fi fans. The production value is through the roof. Actual sound effects from the movies/series are utilized. Marc Thompson does an excellent impression of most of the voices of the actual actors from the movies.


    Which character – as performed by Marc Thompson – was your favorite?

    Grand Admiral Thrawn. He evokes George Sander's Shere Khan from the Jungle Book with his civility and urbane wit. An excellent performance of a controlled master tactician.


    Any additional comments?

    The only reason I rated this a 4 overall is that some of the background effects are a little too distracting during certain segments of the story, including the sound effect for the start of each new chapter. I would only deduct half of a star if possible. The overall performance is spectacular. I hope that Random House and Marc Thompson are working on the 2nd and 3rd books in the series as well.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    What did you love best about Tricked?

    The banter between Atticus and Oberon never disappoints. The characters come alive through Hearne's writing and Daniel's narration.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the time to listen to this from start to finish in one sitting I definitely would have done.


    Any additional comments?

    This series continues to impress. I can't wait for the next book and was grateful for the 1st chapter tease of the next entry.

    Their epic love story has captured the hearts of millions and enchanted readers across the world. In this beautiful finale, their journey draws to a spectacular conclusion—where all will be revealed.Their darkest enemies now defeated, Damen and Ever are free to embark upon their final quest—to free Damen from the poison lingering in his body. If they can just find the antidote, they’ll finally be able to feel each other’s touch—and experience the passionate night they’ve been longing for.

    FanB14 says: "Horrible"
    "Mediocrity Has Merit"
    Overall

    Taken as a whole the conclusion to The Immortals only manages to slightly rise above mediocre. I would probably rate the book 3.5 if given the option. Pacing issues abound and some of the directions the plot takes are baffling. I must agree with the previous reviewer that Damen is pretty controlling, manipulative, and unwilling to believe in Ever. I've thought since his introduction that Jude is a better interest for Ever. It wasn't all bad, obviously, I was pleased with how everything managed to conclude. I don't think I would have the patience to slog through the series again, however.
