    MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she's your perfectly ordinary 21st-century woman. Or so she thinks...until something extraordinary happens.

    Overall

    I was suprised at how much I liked this. I was expecting a romance and it wasn't. It is a dark adventure that sucked me in and I had to hear all three volumes. I can hardly wait for the fourth to see how the last cliff hanger ends.

    From its beginnings as a human-alien story of first contact, the Foreigner series has become a true science fiction odyssey. The ninth book in the epic series, and the third book in the third Foreigner trilogy, Deliverer is a worthy contribution to Cherryh's magnum opus that is destined to be a classic.

    Story

    Listening to this third volume first I was lost a lot of the time. The narrator was excelent. You could feel the character's fear and impotence in the face of an alien enviornment. I will definitly try the first volume to better understand the alien society. It was facinating if bewildering. Read the first volume first.

    Since 1990, when Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time® burst on the world with its first book, The Eye of the World, listeners have been anticipating the final scenes of this extraordinary saga, which has sold over 40 million copies in over 32 languages. When Robert Jordan died in 2007, all feared that these concluding scenes would never be written. But working from notes and partials left by Jordan, established fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson stepped in to complete the masterwork.

    Story

    I really loved this series and Brandon Sanderson did a great job bringing it to a breath taking conclusion. When Robert Jordon passed away, I was so sad because having come so far with these great characters I wanted to reach the end. If you feel like I did that Tolkein's Lord of the rings was too short Robert Jordan gives you an Epic to keep you entertained for months. It has kept me entertained for the years I have waited for this finally. He has created a facinating world with many varied cultures and customs. The adventure moves across continents and worlds as teenagers from a country village are swept up in the titanic strugle between good and evil with the survival of the world in the balance. There is magic and mind control, plots and conspiracies, luck and madness, with danger lurking around every corner. Lost knowledge is rediscovered but is it enough and is it in time to save the world. This is a saga that you just can't aford to miss. Check out volume 1, The Eye of the world and see if you can put it down!

    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

    This was the best book that I heard in 2013. It had the excitement of any thriller and it was the story of a real person told by the one who lived it. The Narrator Ray porter did an excelent job of brining it to life. I felt like I was there with him on the run as he tried to out think all the agents that came after him.

    Story

    The story was quite enjoyable until it suddenly dropped off in the middle of things. I had no idea it was part of a series from the name. I thought that it was a short story but no it is only a piece of one. A good stroy has a rythm and if it is part of a serial, some resolution at the end with room for expansion. This was the most graceless cut off I have run into. I thought that maybe I had missed downloading a part but no. It pissed me off to the point where I am done. I see parts 2 and three are even shorter. It should really be one story.

Though my uncle, Taranis, King of Light and Illusion, claims that he is the true father since he abducted me from my home, betrayed, and defiled me.

    I was totally suprised to hear Cludia Black's voice since she did not do any of the other books. She just brought Meridith to life. There was a whole different feeling to the book it was dramatic and there was a belivability that she brought that was so different from the toung in cheek suspend your disbelief of the rest of the books. I just loved it and wished I could have heard her read the rest of them.

    The renegade outlaw group known as the Outsiders may have been chased from Clonmel, but not before killing Halt's only brother. Now Rangers Halt and Will, along with the young warrior Horace, are in pursuit. The Outsiders have done an effective job of dividing the kingdom into factions and are looking to overtake Araluen. It will take every bit of skill and cunning for the Rangers to survive. Some may not be so lucky.

    If you like knights, rangers and adventure this book is for you. Sword fights, archery and chasing villians across the country side, it is all here.

    I love the character dynamics in this book and the whole series. The relationship between Will, Halt's apprentice and Halt and Will's best friend Horace a knight, is something that I enjoy reading about again and again.

    It is great fun following their adventures from country to country in a world that is very like our own in medevil times.

    This is the 4th book in a great light hearted series. This is the first book in which we hear through the voice of the fairy prince who wants to become human so that he can be with the girl he fell in love with. The story begins at the hut of Babba Yaga and takes you through to the end of the fairy world with many adventures. The interaction between Ash and Puck and the cat siddhe Grimalkin is as entertaining as usual. Megan is only an incidental character in this book.

In this extraordinary world, those who attain glory return as gods. And those who can master the essence known as breath can perform the most wondrous miracles - or unleash the most devastating havoc.
