    For generations, rats have run the mice out of whatever lands they've claimed, keeping them constantly on the move. But now the mice are disappearing, and the young queen Luxa, who credits them with saving her life, is determined to find out why. Gregor joins her on a fact-finding mission, and when the true fate of the mice is revealed, it is something far more sinister than Gregor or Luxa have imagined.

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

    Yes, but only as an entire series - it is entertaining


    Any additional comments?

    I am ready for Ms. Collins to publish more books, either in this series or a new series. The Underland was a fascinating world and the interactions between Underland and Overland was fun to imagine.

    Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads to supplement the canals, electric lighting in the streets and the homes of the wealthy, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds.Kelsier, Vin, Elend, Sazed, Spook, and the rest are now part of history—or religion. Yet the old magics of Allomancy and Feruchemy continue to play a role in this reborn world....

    I was excited to see this new book as a sort of follow up on the Alloy series. I am looking forward to the next in the series. Great narrator. The characters are better than the Alloy series - a little easier to imagine even though their powers are incredible.

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

    What did you love best about Made to Stick?

    Real world examples of the authors premise.


    Any additional comments?

    My friend's cousin did not get an ear infection from this book and has probably not even listened to it. The authors masterfully explain the idea of how some ideas and rumors stick to our brain and why. They also, obviously, explain why other great ideas don't stick and are wasted. This should be read by everyone but especially marketing, CEO's and anyone in a leadership role.

    When young magicians Carter and Sadie Kane learned how to follow the path of the Ancient Egyptian gods, they knew they would have to play an important role in restoring Ma’at (order) to the world. What they didn’t know is how chaotic the world would become. The Chaos snake Apophis is loose and threatening to destroy the Earth in three days’ time. The magicians are divided. The gods are disappearing, and those who remain are weak. What are a couple of teenagers and a handful of young trainees to do?

    Would you try another book from Rick Riordan and/or Katherine Kellgren and Kevin R. Free ?

    Yes.


    What aspect of Katherine Kellgren and Kevin R. Free ’s performance would you have changed?

    nothing, they are great narrators for this book


    Do you think The Serpent's Shadow: The Kane Chronicles, Book 3 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    yes. the story must have a crisp ending


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to the first two in the series I was expecting a more intense read. This book seemed rather stale compared to the first two. The characters didn't seem to develop much since the ending of book 2.
    However, I am looking forward to the next one and am not disappointed by this book. The narrators are great.
