But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him - secrets about Rigg’s own past, his identity, and his destiny.

    Story

    For those of you who have children or have spent any time around them this will define the book for you.
    This book is reminds me of two children having the same arguments day after day about the same things. You get to the point where you can just zone out and come back to it at any point and still know whats going to happen next. Thank you Audible for the 2.5x speed setting!

    "Three knives were buried up to their brass cross guards in the man's chest. Richard recognized the knife handles. All three were the style carried by the men of the First File. He looked from those blades that should have killed the big man, up to his face. That was when he realized the true horror of the situation, and the reason for the unbearable stench of death." Sequel to the #1 New York Times best seller The Omen Machine.

    Story

    Terry Goodkind got very long winded. He spent way to much time describing the same thing from 14 different angles. Then twenty minutes later he'll say it or some version of it again. I have been a big fan of the Sword of Truth series and was thrilled when the story continued with Richard and Kahlan series but I almost didn't finish the book. The next one I will be watching the reviews to see if it gets better.

    Sam Tsoutsouvas did a good job with the voices but he read it a little bit to slow. That combined with all of Goodkinds rambling made it almost impossible to keep my mind from wondering. This was the first book I have ever altered the speed on and I just kept turning it up until I got to 2x!!!

    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

    I listened to the first book only two weeks before this one and it flowed nicely from book to book. This is one of those book series that is one large story and not true series. The story line picks up where The Lost Gate left off and continues on nicely and end with me looking for the next part of the download.

    If you liked The Lost Gate you will like this one too.

    On the planet Henry II, orbiting the twin suns of Plantagenet and Tudor, at the very edge of the great black hole at the center of the Milky Way, there is a tavern called The Outpost. Through the doors of The Outpost have come the greatest heroes, villains, and adventurers of the galaxy - to drink, to brag, and to swap tales.The Outpost is neutral territory where fighting is forbidden and blood enemies can have a drink together and tell stories of battles past. After all bounty hunters, con men, itinerant preachers, thieves, and assassins have more in common with each other than they do with the rest of the mundane galaxy.

    Story

    First of all I do not like short stories. This is basically a new twist on how to deliver short stories. It is a good idea in my opinion I listened to more of the short stories than any other before skipping to the end. The first 5 hours of the story is exactly how the description reads "Through the doors of The Outpost have come the greatest heroes, villains and adventurers of the galaxy - to drink, to brag, and to swap tales." You get a couple of hours of one solid story at the end. The only reason I am giving it a bad review is because I feel a little mislead. If I had realized how important that one sentence was I would not have purchased it.

    Two-thousand-year-old Atticus may have outwitted and outfought everyone from Odin to Bacchus, but in this eBook original, he’s about to discover what comes around when you go around messing with gods. Six years into the training of his beautiful apprentice, Granuaile, a large crow swoops down and transforms into none other than the Morrigan, a goddess who insists that Atticus come with her at once. He must leave his apprentice behind, along with his Irish wolfhound, Oberon - and he must also leave his sword.

    Members of the Politburo and the KGB devise a brilliant plan of diplomatic trickery - a sequence of events designed to pit the NATO allies against each other - a distraction calculated to enable the Soviets to seize all the oil in the Persian Gulf. But as this spellbinding story of international intrigue and global politics nears its climax, the Soviets are faced with another prospect, one they hadn't planned on: a full-scale conflict in which nobody can win.

    If you don't pay close attention you will get lost due to the lack of detail. I have never read the book but after reading the other reviews I feel important parts of the story was left out witch would have made it good listen.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    He changed the voices tones and accents. You get use to the charters voice being a certain way and all of a sudden Roy uses a different accent or tone. I listened to all five in a row while I drive and work and it made the story a little hard to follow.
