    Since his mother’s death six years ago, Carter Kane has been living out of a suitcase, traveling the globe with his father, the brilliant Egyptologist Dr. Julius Kane.

    Story

    This book is probably good for youths, I however did not like it, I Love the Harry Potter books, as the hunger games books, this however is not close to these, i found the narration annoying and the story shallow.

    I don't want to discourage youths to listen to this just want to warn other adults that they might want to look for something else.

    It is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces, some familiar, others only just appearing, are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

    "Best Fantasy ever"
    Overall

    The ice and fire series is one of the best series of books i have ever read, the third book was my favorite so far, regarding the narrator, as with all audiobooks you will not like if a new narrator steps in but i think Jhon lee does a great job once you get use to him.

    Neal Stephenson, "the hottest science fiction writer in America", takes science fiction to dazzling new levels. The Diamond Age is a stunning tale; set in 21st-century Shanghai, it is the story of what happens what a state-of-the-art interactive device falls into the hands of a street urchin named Nell. Her life, and the entire future of humanity, is about to be decoded and reprogrammed.

    "Best SI-FI book i have read"
    Overall

    This book is amazing, the world that he has crated is logic and its so rich in details most other si-fi books never come close, just the technology in first chapter made me fall for this book.
