    Felix Castor used to cast out demons for a living, and London was his stomping ground. But in a time when the supernatural realm is in upheaval and spilling over into the mundane world of the living, his skills are in renewed demand. With old debts to pay, Castor is left with no choice but to accept one final, well-paying assignment: a seemingly simple exorcism.

    Story

    Great book, had all the right elements. Mystery, magic, good writing. It did take me a little longer than usual to get sucked in, but once I did I was hooked. I've read the rest of the books in the series and they're all just as good. As another review said, they have a Jim Butcher feel to them but by no means the same books. Can't wait for more.

    Here is the saga of a people who call themselves the Clan of the Cave Bear; how they lived; the animals they hunted; the great totems they revered. But mostly it is the story of Ayla, the girl they found and raised, who was not like them. To the Clan, her fair looks make her different - ugly.

    "Bad Narrator"
    Overall

    Could stand the voice of the narrator and it read like a history book instead of a story...

    Bingtown is a hub of exotic trade and home to a merchant nobility famed for its liveships---rare vessels carved from wizardwood, which ripens magically into sentient awareness. The fortunes of one of Bingtown's oldest families rest on the newly awakened liveship Vivacia. For Althea Vestrit, the ship is her rightful legacy unjustly denied her---a legacy she will risk anything to reclaim.

    Lorena says: "Something altogether new"
    "Horrible Narrator"
    Overall

    I normally love Robin Hobb books, but this is by far the worst narrator I've ever listened to. I'd only make it 3-4 sentences before I'd be spacing out. I've started and given up on this book about 10 times... She draws out her words, speaks with NO emotion, completely monotone. This is definitely a book to read not listen to.

    Legendary science fiction author Orson Scott Card calls Brandon Sanderson a writer to watch, and Publishers Weekly says his debut is "outstanding." Once the godlike rulers of the capital of Arelon, the inhabitans of Elantris have been imprisoned within themselves, unable to die after the city's magic failed years ago. But when a new prince falls victim to the curse, he refuses to accept his fate.

    "3 hours and still no where"
    Overall

    I only made it through 3 hours before I couldn't take it anymore. Nothing has happened yet! I don't care about the characters, there has been only about 30 min max of development in the story... very disappointing, especially after I read the mistborn series which I loved...
