    After a violent civil war and the devastation wrought by the now-fallen Darth Caedus, the Galactic Alliance is in crisis and in need. From all corners, politicians, power brokers, and military leaders converge on Coruscant for a crucial summit to restore order, negotiate differences, and determine the future of their unified worlds. But even more critical, and far more uncertain, is the future of the Jedi.

    Kir Kanos TN says: "This Series has Potential, but off to a slow start"
    "Great start to a new series"
    Overall

    If they ever think about making movies out of another series in the Star Wars universe this may be the one to choose. Bottom line, narration is great, sound effects add depth, and storyline kept my interest from beginning to end. I am looking forward to listening to Outcast.

    Jubal Sackett's urge to explore drove him westward, and when a Natchez priest asks him to undertake a nearly impossible quest, Sackett ventures into the endless grassy plains the Indians call the Far Seeing Lands. He seeks a Natchez exploration party and its leader, Itchakomi. It is she who will rule her people when their aging chief dies, but first she must vanquish her rival, the arrogant warrior Kapata.

    Jared says: "Sackett Series"
    "What historical fiction should be"
    Overall

    My father exposed me to L'Amour when I was a child. Dad's favorites where Westerns like Hondo. I was aware of the Sackett saga, but hadn't really got into them until Audible. If you find Curless difficult give him a chance through a few chapters. The narrator of these stories shouldn't sound like John Wayne. Jonn Curless it spot on. What can you say about L'Amour he was a master story teller and the The Sacketts is his masterpiece. I have listened to over 65 titles of various genere, but this is one of the rare ones I will listen to again.

    In medieval England, four children have been murdered, and the townsfolk blame their Jewish neighbors. The doctor chosen to investigate is a woman, Adelia. As she examines the victims and retraces their last steps, she must conceal her true identity in order to avoid accusations of witchcraft. Along the way, she's assisted by Sir Rowley Picot, a man with a personal stake in the investigation. A former Crusader knight, Rowley may be a needed friend - or the fiend for whom they are searching.

    Overall

    When I first downloaded the book I stop listening after a few minutes. The narrator's accent was hard to get use to along with the manner of speech which fits the period. However, I gave the book another try and loved it. Amilia is a character I would like to read or listen more of. A women with modern sense in the darkest time in history. Brilliant!

    It is the year AD 62. The notorious Roman emperor Nero orders Marco Junio Vitalis, a seasoned military general, to assist him in a most peculiar legal proceeding. Vitalis interrogates an elderly Jewish fisherman named Peter, who many years earlier had been a close friend of a man known as Jesus - the same Jesus condemned to death in Jerusalem by Pontius Pilate.

    Barbara Buck says: "Everyone should read."
    "Interesting Historical perspective"
    Overall

    I have read other reviews which suggest just reading the book of Mark, but I found the Roman perspective interesting. Even though this is a work of Historical Fiction the author did his due dilagence. Good quick listen for any modern day Christian looking to gain some historica perspective. James Adams does a great job.

    In the aftermath of the brutal murder of his father, Richard Cypher encounters a mysterious woman, Kahlan Amnell, in his forest sanctuary. She seeks his help...and more. His world, his very beliefs, are shattered when ancient debts come due with thundering violence.

    "Epic"
    Overall

    I've seen the commercials for the T.V. show, but never watched it. Also I knew nothing of Goodkind or this series before I downloaded the book, I just liked the synopsis. I thought it would be a good story. All I can say is wow. The depth of the characters and the twist of the plot make this 34hr. reading fly by. I am hooked on the story line, and am glad I have found a story to follow from month to month until the next Fate of the Jedi is released. I have downloaded about 30 books over the past year from several different genres of fiction. This is hands down in my top 3. Don't be intimidated by the length. Try it out for one credit it is worth it.

    If you are a lover of Historical Fiction as I am I would highly recommend this title. Great plot and character development. Plus it answers questions you may have had after Riders of the Purple Sage. Michael Prichard is great. One ofthe few titles I have chosen to give 5*.

    He's the most unlikely hero you'll ever meet, an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at twice. But there's so much more to any of us than meets the eye, and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday events. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead, it's something that just happened.

    Sittingduck says: "Detailed Koontz"
    "Odd Sequel"
    Overall

    It is hard for a second book to continue a storyline and give you new stuff from character that you know. I think Koontz pulls it off. Forever Odd is good all on its own. If you haven't read or listened to the first book(I don't know why you haven't)you can pick up the series starting with this book without missing a beat. Most reviews will tell you that it wasn't as good as the first book, but what second anything ever is. If things had started with this book reviews would be just as glowing. Original potline, original new characters, and a good character evolution to Odd.

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Denise says: "No Doubting Thomas"
    "What good fiction can be!"
    Overall

    Odd Thomas is a character you care about. His Pico Mundo friends are people that you can identify with, and Koontz weaves a story better than anything on tv or at the movies. A very cool story with an ending that makes you want to read or download Forever Odd immediately.

    Year after year, Rafe Esquith's fifth-grade students excel. They read passionately, far above their grade level; tackle algebra; and stage Shakespeare so professionally that they often wow the great Shakespearen actor himself, Sir Ian McKellen. Yet Esquith teaches at an L.A. inner city school known as the Jungle, where few of his students speak English at home, and many are from poor or troubled families. What's his winning recipe? A diet of intensive learning mixed with a lot of kindness and fun.

    4dogspal says: "Also, Be Nice. Work Hard."
    "Rafe proves all children can achieve!!"
    Overall

    If you have a child in your life you care about you need to give this one a listen. Not just a howto it was very entertaining. Rafe is not a "rah-rah" guy, but a realist who talks as much about his mistakes as his succeeses. Only knock on this audiobook is that the breaks don't line up with the endings of chapters. I like to follow along at times, so that is annoying to me. I rarely give 5stars, this one was close.

    Jonathan Barnes, a shining new talent in the UK, intrigues listeners with his "wonderfully original concoction[s] of grotesque humour and sparkling prose" (Guardian) - providing a literary "cabinet stuffed with curiosities" (Observer). In The Domino Men, an ordinary office-working Brit discovers that he may be destined to wipe out the wicked House of Windsor.

    Andrew says: "excellent creepy modern fantasy."
    "A macabre decent story"
    Overall

    This is the first book I have been exposed to from J.Barnes. So, I can't compare it to his other work. Evaluating The Domino Men on it's own I would have to say that it started off really strong. By the end of the first part I was really hooked, but the last few hours of the second part lost momentum and seemed to drag. The only other complaint that I have is that Barnes goes above and beyond to tie all loose plot strings by the end of the book, but never explains why the two characters are called the Domino Men. You are left only to assume. Morbid humor, characters with blunt human flaws, a conspiricy thriller worth a listen.
