    When young magicians Carter and Sadie Kane learned how to follow the path of the Ancient Egyptian gods, they knew they would have to play an important role in restoring Ma’at (order) to the world. What they didn’t know is how chaotic the world would become. The Chaos snake Apophis is loose and threatening to destroy the Earth in three days’ time. The magicians are divided. The gods are disappearing, and those who remain are weak. What are a couple of teenagers and a handful of young trainees to do?

    Story

    I always enjoy Rick Riordan's wonderful books, but sadly this one is being read by just terrible readers. Bizarrely the Carter character, an African American teen who likes girls, is being read by an actor who sounds white and gay. The Sadie character is done by an actress with an unpleasantly shrill voice, who sounds hysterical for no apparent reason much of the time.
    This is the second Rick Riordan series I've listened to that has been nearly ruined by bad reading. These are very popular books from a best-selling author, and I don't see why it wasn't considered worth it to find readers with more appropriate voices who read as though they understand the sense of the words.

    All is not well in Margrave, Georgia. The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road.

    This is my first Reacher, and I'm addicted! I thought the story moved along at a great pace, and had lots of surprises.

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    Story

    Although I enjoy the Dresden series as a rule, this book left me cold. In Harry's battles with the werewolves, I felt that nearly the same scenario was being repeated over and over again. I lost interest in the outcome by a quarter of the way through, and only slogged on from stubbornness and the hope that something new and surprising would happen. Very disappointing.
