    On the technological, decadent world of Proton, someone was trying to destroy Stile, serf and master Gamesman. His only escape lay in Phaze, a world totally ruled by magic. Soon he learned that his alternate self had already been murdered, and that he was next. On Proton, his fate depended on winning the great Games. On Phaze, he must master magic to survive. And if he used any magic at all, his friends were determined to kill him at once!

    you cant go wrong with Piers Anthony.
    i have everything by Piers Anthony from here and love them all.
    the best in the Apprentice Adept Series is the first 3 books.
    but Apprentice Adept Series is all part of one story.
    try the first book and if you dont like it then dont bother with the rest in this Series.
    but if you do like it then get them all.

    After more than two hundred years as a corpsicle, Jaybee Corbell awoke in someone else’s body and under threat of instant annihilation if he made a wrong move while they were training him for a one-way mission to the stars. But Corbell bided his time and made his own move. Once he was outbound, where the society that ruled Earth could not reach him, he headed his starship toward the galactic core.

    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.

    ok first off i only give 5 star rateings to books that are the best.
    so you dont see miny 5 star books from me.
    4 and 3 stars mostly.
    that said i did give book one 5 stars but this book drop to 4 stars.
    witch is still a good book just not great.
    to miny poeple give out 5 stars to easy.
    Stefan Rudnicki as always is a great Narrater.
    the way i see it they should keep male voices for men and female voices to women.
    but thats imo.
    i would of been the first reviewer but i waited.
    they can tell you about the story.
    like i always say read the reviews try the simple and track other readers that like the same kind of storys you do.
    it helps to make a safer choce.
    enjoy the story... :)

    The mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth, in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Pluto. Other mining ships, and the families that live on them, are few and far between this far out. So when El Cavador’s telescopes pick up a fast-moving object coming in-system, it’s hard to know what to make of it. It’s massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light.

    El Cavador has other problems. Their systems are old and failing. The family is getting too big for the ship. There are claim-jumping corporate ships bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt.

    i love ocs narraters, Stefan Rudnicki i like a lot.
    you ca read the info from other reviews and from story info.
    i rated this 4 stars on story witch is vary good.
    also try the simple to get even more of an ideal and read the reviews.
    and remember every one has there own tast in storys.
    its a good ideal to find people that has the same tast in storys as you follow them and that will help even more. the one thing i will tell you on the story here is the war dont start yet here just how they meet and the build up start here just before it get to earth.
    i think most will like it. the next book will be the first war witch i hate haveing to wait on O.o
    but is a good story leading up to it.
    Enjoy! :)

    George Galen is a brilliant scientist, a pioneer in gene therapy. But Galen is dangerously insane. He has created a method to alter human DNA, not just to heal diseases, but also to "improve" people - make them stronger, make them able to heal more quickly...and make them compliant to his will.

    Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    as you can see kids dont care to much for it.
    it is more then just a romance story.
    it starts out about a witch, that dont want to be one.
    a story of magic... and it starts out about a book she run across and see's it has magic but trys to pass it by... no chance!
    to say the least a long story...lol
    im waiting on book2. she ends up going back in time by way of magic after she finds she has a lot of power thats breaking out.
    ill not say more. to much will kill the story for you...lol
    if your not a kid you may like it.
    just read reviews and try the simple.
    you may get lucky.
    if your a kid your likey will not like it.
    it has a lot of romance in it too. kids dont care for that. bores them. :)

    Landover was a genuine magic kingdom, with fairy folk and wizardry, just as the advertisement promised. But after he purchased it, Ben Holiday learned that there were a few details the ad had failed to mention.

    The kingdom was in ruin. The Barons refused to recognize the king, and the peasants were without hope.
