    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.

    First the narration is horrible. Even in my native language I cannot understand the reader.
    Second, maybe the story is great but I don't have time to read it and find out. That's why I buy Audible.

    I suggest you never purchase an Audible narrated by Anne Flosnik.

    I am going to see if I can get my money back.

    For decades, the magical race of shapeshifters called the Cheysuli have been feared and hated exiles in their own land, a land they rightfully should rule. Victims of a vengeful monarch's war of annihilation and a usurper king's tyrannical reign, the Cheysuli clans have nearly vanished from the world. Now in the aftermath of the revolution which overthrew the hated tyrant, Prince Donal is being trained as the first Cheysuli in generations to assume the throne. But will he be able to overcome the prejudice of a populace afraid of his special magic and succeed in uniting the realm?

    I had trouble following it and fell asleep many times. It definitely did not show her best work. Still I just bought another in the series so you do not want to miss the middle of the series.

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

But when his homeland erupts in chaos - when rebels war with loyalists and furies clash with furies - Tavi's simple courage will turn the tides of war.

    For some reason they have added trumpet sounds at strange places throughout the narration. It's very annoying and really is not not well performed either. The narrator is great. It is just the sound effects that are bad.

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    There's a sudden spike in murders in Philadelphia, but no one seems to mind much because the victims all seem to be lowlifes. The more Homicide Sergeant Matthew Payne investigates, however, the more he gets a bad feeling-one that only gets worse when vigilante groups spring up claiming credit for some of the hits, even though Payne knows it can't be true. As the targets get bigger and events start moving out of control, Payne realizes that if he and his colleagues can't figure out who's behind this very soon, the violence could overtake them all.

    Classic Griffin with a nice touch of Butterworth, this is one that every suspense fan should read. It has a slightly weak ending but not so much as to demerit the plot.

    I do recommend going through the series in order of books.

    "My name is Megan Chase. In less than 24 hours, I'll be 17. Although, technically, I won't actually be turning 17. I've been in the Nevernever too long. When you're in Faery, you don't age. So while a year has passed in the real world, agewise I'm probably only a few days older than when I went in. In real life, I've changed so much I don't even recognize myself."

    Story

    This one ( the third book ) was not as good as the first two because it was very predictable. However it was still good and I would recommend it. There was a very small amount of sexual verbiage but enough not to let a child read it. I would say it is mature level.

    I have not read the novellas and probably will not. I may purchase the new novel that is from Ash's POV but I am not familiar with the narrator which can make or break an audiobook. If I can hear a sample and like it then I will buy it.

    The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a novel written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson and first published in 1886. It is about a London lawyer who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the misanthropic Mr Hyde, who dislikes humanity as a general rule.The work is known for its vivid portrayal of a split personality.

    The book was read accurately. However it was read at a pace that was so fast as to be incomprehensible.

    A slight slower reading would have made this listening enjoyable.

    Long ago, so the Storyteller claimed, the evil god Torak sought dominion and drove men and Gods to war. But Belgrath the Sorcerer led men to reclaim the Orb that protected the West. So long as it lay at Riva, the prophecy went, men would be safe. That was only a story, and Garion did not believe in magic dooms, even though the man without a shadow had haunted him for years.

    Pretty good listen but it seemed shorter than when I read the book years ago. I was not well impressed with the reader. He changes accents but not voices. Also I'm not so sure the pronunciations are accurate.

    Definitely worth the price though.
