    Michael was born with special electrical powers - and he’s not the only one. His friend Taylor has them too, and so do other kids around the world. With Michael’s friend Ostin, a techno-genius, they form the Electroclan, an alliance meant to protect them from a powerful group, the growing Order of Elgen, who are out to destroy them. The leader of the Elgen, Dr. Hatch, has kidnapped Michael’s mother, and time is running out. After narrowly escaping an Elgen trap, Ostin’s discovery of bizarre “rat fires” in South America leads the gang to the jungles of Peru.

    Story

    I loved the first book and the second book is just as good. The story is quick and fun and suspenseful. I laughed out loud more than once. Austin and Max are hysterical. I really enjoyed the book. I hate cliff hanger endings. Hopefully Mr. Evans won't make us wait too long for book 3.

    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back, packing a whole lot of attitude. This time around, she's on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso's also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie's investigations.

    I really enjoyed this book. I read the first book and got this one for a cross country road trip. Not sure that driving and listening to this book was the best idea; unless you're good at laughing and driving. The story is great and the narration is perfect.

    The recently orphaned Sisters Grimm find out from their Granny, who they thought was dead, that they're descendents of the legendary Brothers Grimm. Now they must take over the family responsibility of being fairy tale detectives in a town where fairy tales are real. Their first case: a giant is destroying the town and it may have something to do with a boy named Jack and a certain famous beanstalk.

    I really enjoyed this book. I actually read it first and then got the audio book. The audio book has a few issues with timing and inflections that seem off but overall I enjoyed it. The book is pretty fast paced with a lot of drama and adventure. I look forward to the rest of the series.

    Back in Oregon, Kelsey tries to pick up the pieces of her life and push aside her feelings for Ren. But danger lurks around the corner, forcing her to return to India where she embarks on a second quest--this time with Ren's dark, bad-boy brother Kishan, who has also fallen prey to the Tiger's Curse. Fraught with danger, spellbinding dreams, and choices of the heart, Tiger's Quest brings the trio one step closer to breaking the spell that binds them.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I got the audio to listen to during my long commute because I really enjoyed the story. The performance is a little slow at times, especially when Mr. Kadam speaks. But overall I enjoyed it.

    The last thing teenager Kelsey Hayes thought she'd be doing over the summer was meeting Ren, a mysterious white tiger and cursed Indian prince! When she learns she alone can break the Tiger's curse, Kelsey's life is turned upside-down. The unlikely duo journeys halfway around the world to piece together an Indian prophecy, find a way to free the man trapped by a centuries-old spell, and discover the path to their true destiny.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tiger's Curse to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed to print version of Tiger's Curse very much. I drive long distances and wanted the book in audio format so that I could hear how some of the words were pronounced and also to hear the story again. The performance in the book is a little slow at times. Especially when Mr. Kadam is speaking. But overall it is a good addition to the printed version of the story.


    What does Annika Boras and Sanjiv Jahveri bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The biggest thing that the readers bring to the story is the pronunciation to Indian words that I had no idea how to say.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not necessarily. I drive long distances and wanted the book to listen to while I drive.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall this is a book, both print and audio versions, that I would recommend. I enjoyed it, and the subsequent titles, very much!
