    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Overall

    Patrick Rothfuss has some very unique and interesting ideas on this genre. I was trapped in this story from start to finish. It was a stupendous escape. His play on words and description are some of the best I've ever come across. If you enjoy a deep slow and original story with a refreshing introduction to the genre of myth, magic, adventure, and legend then this is a book for you.

    On a side note the Narrator, Nick Podehl, was hands down the best I've come across. This says a lot for someone who listens to 40+ audio books a year. He was on top of his game for this story. Very easy on the ears.

    And I can't help but toss in this review: BOOK TWO PLEASE ;-)

    Librarian Isaac Stein spends his lumpy, lonely days restoring forgotten books, until the night he steals an invitation to a scandalous club steeped in sin. Descending into its bowels, he accidentally discovers Scratch, a wounded demon who feeds on lust. Consorting with a mortal is a bad idea, but Scratch can't resist the man who knows how to open the portal that will free him and his kind.

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

    The Hebrew Lore had me curious and wanting more. It was a quick listen. I found myself wanting to learn more about the main character and the lore of these Incubus Angel/Demon men.


    Any additional comments?

    This could easily be expanded into a full-lenght novel. I would defiantly revisit the world if that ever happened!

    Since 9/11, Brooklyn firefighter Griff Muir has wrestled with impossible feelings for his best friend and partner at Ladder 181, Dante Anastagio. Unfortunately, Dante is strictly a ladies’ man, and the FDNY isn’t exactly gay-friendly. For ten years, Griff has hidden his heart in a half-life of public heroics and private anguish. Griff’s caution and Dante’s cockiness make them an unbeatable team. To protect his buddy, there’s nothing Griff wouldn’t do… until a nearly bankrupt Dante proposes the worst possible solution: HotHead.com, a gay porn website where uniformed hunks get down and dirty.

    Would you listen to Hot Head again? Why?

    Charlie David + Damon Suede...enough said.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dante Anastagio - Damon nailed the Sicilian Italian man. I found myself thinking "How did he know that!'


    What does Charlie David bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Charlie added an extra dimension to Hot Head. I feel like I had an amplified experience listening to this audio book over everyone else who has just read the book. His cultural accents were spot-on!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene Griff barreled into a burning building to save Dante.

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    joshua says: "Card doing what he does best."
    "OSC Has done it AGAIN!"
    Overall

    His magic system is brilliantly done and well incorporated into his signature coming-of-age epics. He has managed to explain fairytale-fantasy, mythology, religion, space-time continuum, and even the supernatural while somehow managing to seamlessly fold it into the everyday modern life of a 16 year old. Thirty-three years in the making - My hat goes off to one of my very favorite storytellers.

    For three days battle has raged in the snow around the great city of Tar Valon. In the city, a foretelling of the future is uttered. On the slopes of Dragonmount, the immense mountain that looms over the city, a child is born, an infant prophesied to change the world. That child must be found before he can be killed by the forces of the Shadow.

    This was the first Robert Jordan book I've listened to. Let me tell you, this set the stage for what looks to be a grand story in the Wheel of Time story series. Very well written and the narration was impeccable. I'm hooked!

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "King drops the Ball"
    Overall

    I really didn't enjoy this book at all. Perhaps the narrator spoils it because I felt myself cringing at some of his character attempts. It just wasn't up to my Stephen King expectations. If you presented this book to me without telling me about the author I would have to guess that some stoned kid made the whole thing up and got lucky with a publisher. If that description makes no sense buy the book and see for yourself.

    With their most treacherous mission yet behind them, heroes Seregil and Alec resume their double life as dissolute nobles and master spies. But in a world of rivals and charmers, fate has a different plan. After their victory in Aurnen, Alec and Seregil have returned home to Rhminee. But with most of their allies dead or exiled, it is difficult for them to settle in. Hoping for diversion, they accept an assignment that will take them back to Seregils homeland.

    Audrey says: "I love the book, but..."
    "PHENOMENAL!!!"
    Overall

    Like all of Lynn's books, this one was a phenomenal adventure! Its amazing how she brings you into a world so real you would think she had actually been there. The adventure continues and I was on the edge of every word for this entire story. If your looking to dive into an intense and memorable experience I suggest you open your ears to this adventure!

    On a side note to those of you who have listened to the other Nightrunner books: This is Narrated by Adam Danoff who isn't the original narrator of the other 3 books. It takes a bit of getting used to in the beginning. His pronunciation of many of the commonly used words and names are different. Overlook these and just be as grateful as I was to see Audible adding another one of Lynn's Books to the collection.

Together they've made their way with thieving jobs large and small, winning friends and enemies, their lives in constant danger and yet charmed by an aura of magic, friendship, and trust.

    What a magnificent read! This was yet another amazing story told by one of the best authors I have ever known. I feel so lucky to have come across this series. Its a wonderful adventure and escape into a layered story of love, gender, sexuality, and faith.

    Andrew Wiggin is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: he is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony. He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony's training facilities, but instead the 12-year-old chooses to leave his home world and begin the long relativistic journey out to the colonies.

    Joshua says: "A Change of Perspective"
    "Well Told!"
    Overall

    This really did fill in the empty space in the Ender series. Well written and very easy to put into the pocket of time that the Ender series and Shadow series fall into.

    "Being trapped in a bedroom with a woman is a grand thing. Being trapped in hundreds of bedrooms over two thousand years isn't. And being cursed into a book as a love-slave for eternity can ruin even a Spartan warrior's day. As a love-slave, I know everything about women. How to touch them, how to savor them, and most of all, how to pleasure them. But when I was summoned to fulfill Grace Alexander's sexual fantasies, I found the first woman in history who saw me as a man with a tormented past."

    Robbie says: "Awesome Story"
    "Xena Knock Off"
    Overall

    Just like the title of this review its a basic Xena episode drug out. This is not an over statement. Yes the mythology was interesting, but hardly worth the read when you have to deal with the terrible writing style. Maybe it was not a book to listen to and possibly best left read. I felt myself cringe most of the time from the Narrators exaggerations - they were horrible.
