    Earl Harbinger may be the leader of Monster Hunter International, but he's also got a secret. Nearly a century ago, Earl was cursed to be a werewolf. When Earl receives word that one of his oldest foes, a legendarily vicious werewolf that worked for the KGB, has mysteriously appeared in the remote woods of Michigan, he decides to take care of some unfinished business.

    I liked the story it was very 30 Days of Nightish, but the constant change of perspective gave me mental wipe lash. If you like the series it is a must read, or if you are in the mood for a PG survival horror it will do as well.

    Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior of the Sixth Order, called Darkblade, called Hope Killer. The greatest warrior of his day, and witness to the greatest defeat of his nation: King Janus' vision of a Greater Unified Realm drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause Vaelin alone knows was forged from a lie. Sick at heart, he comes home, determined to kill no more. Named Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches by King Janus's grateful heir, he can perhaps find peace in a colder, more remote land far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. I liked how he added 3 new points of view into the story. My only main complaint is how a certain characters all of sudden because way to powerful and awesome at fighting with Bow and Sword and is better at strategy than trained and experienced warriors. But all in all a good book.

    Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

    I loved this book. Awesome all around though if I had to make one complaint it would be through the book they show and talk about how strong Franks is but his amazing stregnth gets ignored whenever the author feels like. It seems like Franks should be able to rip the jaw/head off a person or werewolf. That said great book.

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    This 2nd book in the Stormlight Archive delivers delivers a radiant read. If you enjoyed The first book than you will love and enjoy this book. The Book has a slight pacing problem as Sanderson packs a lot into to this book, but by the end you wish there where 1000 more chapters. All in all buy it you wont be sorry.

    For a 2,000-year-old Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he’s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt - Artemis and Diana - for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is...run like hell.

    Story

    If you liked the other Iron Druid books then you should like this one. I loved the previous books but find myself falling out of love with this series. Characters like Granuaile where OK at first but now seem to be way to powerful and bad ass for their comparative age. And nobody important ever dies in the series. I mean the author does an OK job of explaining how the druids can fight these powerful gods and live but eh. I used to joke that is was like a Scooby-Doo or if the Dresden Files was Heroine then the Iron Druid series is Methadone and now it kinda is. I am just gonna make my daughter listen to them and if she likes them I might get the next book for her. Overall still a good read if you want a modern style fantasy with a few laughs thrown in just don't expect to be blown away.
    ( P.S. A 9 hour book? Come on if Oberon where real he could write longer novels)

    Story

    One of the very few books I could not finish. The very unrealistic characters ( yes I know this is fiction) and very annoying characters ruined this book. The Narrator does a very nice job and makes you want to keep going on this unpleasant ride. The overall story is entertaining and had me thinking about the book even when not active listening to it. What ruined this book was the Characters like The lady Juniper. So very irritating and nauseating was this character that I took my headphone off and started a new Book. A Wiccan folk singer who speaks in a fake Irish accent is bad enough, but just her constant merry met and goddess this ugh. Any other character with that much religious enthusiasm would be looked at as a Zealot wacko and not some Heroine goddess. I would have liked to see how it all ended up but I doubt anybody who needed to die would die. It seems S.M. Stirling uses the Star Trek Red shirt method of killing characters. This is not Lovecraft but be warned read at the risk of your own Sanity.

    Five thousand years out of the Labyrinth, the Minotaur finds himself in the American South, living in a trailer park and working as a line cook at a steakhouse. No longer a devourer of human flesh, the Minotaur is a socially inept, lonely creature with very human needs. But over a two-week period, as his life dissolves into chaos, this broken and alienated immortal awakens to the possibility for happiness and to the capacity for love.
