    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

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

    Absolutely. If you like any of the birth/rebirth of magic stories, this is the book for you. Amazing, exciting ending will leave you wanting more. My only complaint is the wait between books. Hopefully this time it will be shorter now that he is done with the Wheel of Time.

    "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.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is a great addition to the series. The only reason I rated the story down a bit is because Mr. Goodkind slipped back into some of the habits that detracted from the story. For example, the explanations and re-iterations of how things are done magically are a bit involved. Specifically conversations between Richard and Samantha tend to get a little long winded and re-iterate things over and over again. The Omen machine and The legend of Magda Searus got away from these drawn out scenes, which is one of the great parts about the books.

    The story is amazing as always, just could have been edited down in parts. It felt like the first quarter of the book was drug out, then the action began and it totally became worth it.

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    This book is a nerdgasm of 80's pop culture references and gaming. It will stand alone for Scifi people who aren't really gamers, but you won't enjoy it as much.

    Earl Harbinger may be the leader of Monster Hunter International, but he's also got a secret. Nearly a century ago, Earl was cursed to be a werewolf. When Earl receives word that one of his oldest foes, a legendarily vicious werewolf that worked for the KGB, has mysteriously appeared in the remote woods of Michigan, he decides to take care of some unfinished business.

    Story

    I like the story after I got into it, but I had a hard time giving it a chance. I didn't like the way this story was more a branch off the story line started in the MHI series. I felt it messed with the formula of the first two. After I got over that, though it was a good book.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

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

    Absolutely, I think this is one of the best stories I have read. If you are looking for incredibly deep and twisting plots, this isn't the story for you, but if you like good characters, witty dialogue, and sticking it to the man, this is your story.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....
