    The Nightrunners are back in this gripping novel full of Lynn Flewelling’s trademark action, intrigue, and richly imagined characters. More than the dissolute noblemen they appear to be, Alec and Seregil are skillful spies, dedicated to serving queen and country. But when they stumble across evidence of a plot pitting Queen Phoria against Princess Klia, the two Nightrunners will find their loyalties torn as never before.

    The boys are back, and in the environment they do best in, Full of twists and turns to keep the reader off the track until things pull together for the characters. Masterfully written, competently narrated. I'll be listening to this again soon.

    Ambassador Spock travels back in time to subtly warn Earth's inhabitants of impending doom while calling into question humanity's priorities.

    The battle of wits and logic is joined again! Spock and Q are in the midst of debating the fate of mankind when they are suddenly transported to somewhere in deep space. Then a curious personality change begins to take place, as Spock is overcome with giddy delight and Q begins to act serious, even logical. Masterfully performed by Leonard Nimoy and John de Lancie!

    Join the Army and See the Universe. That is the motto of The Third Space War, also known as The First Interstellar War, but most commonly as The Bug War. In one of Robert Heinlein's most controversial best sellers, a recruit of the future goes through the toughest boot camp in the universe - and into battle with the Terrain Mobile Infantry against mankind's most alarming enemy.

    Excellent tale, but didn't make the translation into audiobook as well as I had hoped, still very enjoyable. Once again, the voices I had put to characters as I read were not quite what the narrators give us.

    I've listened to both the abridged and unabridged versions of this one, and the amount of detail lost is incredible. Well developed characters, and consistancy with the rest of the Ryanverse make this a absolute must read for any Clancy fan.

    I love the story, and have read it hardcopy many times. I can't say that the narrator was a particularly great choice, but then that is because she didn't sound like the voices I gave to the characters as I read. Still, very enjoyable.
