    As Clayton grows from a wild child to a clever teen who tests his mentor at every turn, he must learn not only to control his animal instincts but to navigate Pack politics - including showing his brutal archnemesis who the real Alpha is.

    Amazon Customer says: "Excellent backstory, but not a prequel"
    "Great story!"
    Overall

    I thought the idea of this book was interesting so I listened(Im not real big on "romance novels" they tend to bore me)But this was a nice surprise. I loved listening to the "voice" of the little boy, very funny and believable.I listened to this book more than once, its worth the $. Very little romance, just a great story.
    The reader did an EXCELLENT job on the different voices!

    To be a Pure is to be perfect, untouched by Detonations that scarred the Earth, and sheltered inside the paradise that is the Dome. But Partridge escaped to the outside world, where Wretches struggle to survive amid smoke and ash. Now, at the command of Partridge's father, the Dome is unleashing nightmare after nightmare upon the Wretches in an effort to get him back. At Partridge's side is a small band of those united against the Dome: Lyda, the warrior; Bradwell, the revolutionary; El Capitan, the guard; and Pressia, the young woman whose mysterious past ties her to Partridge in ways she never could have imagined.

    What made the experience of listening to Fuse the most enjoyable?

    ......I love this series...I think it is so much more original and interesting then most dystopian society books, lately. I am just fascinated and horrified, by the way the nuclear blasts changed the world and the people. Well, at least the unprotected ...


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    absolutely!The way the author can find beauty in the ghastly...is worth the listen....It will not disappoint!


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    The main characters are intricate and the way the author "writes them" to us, you truly care about them....its very cool.But there is something about "El Capitan" and his brother...I dont want to give anything away....you just need to listen....these books are like nothing else you've listened to.


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

    I loved the books from start to finish. But I enjoyed the way the people were described, finding how their deformities can be lovely. And their will to survive, under such dire conditions....It also has a lot of symbolism, I think.... The way the individual fusions are "carried", some literally, by each character...have meaning to each of them....


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoy post-apocalyptic, dystopian and a bit of gruesome...your set!

    Katniss Everdeen continues to struggle to protect herself and her family from the Capitol in this second novel from the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.

    FanB14 says: "Dissent Rules"
    "Great Book"
    Overall

    I loved "Hunger Games" so much I recommended it to my kids. They loved it so much we bought the book and it has been passed around all over the high school. "Catching Fire" is JUST AS GOOD!!!!
    I'd recommend it to young adults and "older" young adults.

    Cadel Piggott has a genius IQ and a fascination with systems of all kinds. At seven, he was illegally hacking into computers. Now he's 14 and studying for his World Domination degree, taking classes like embezzlement, misinformation, forgery, and infiltration at the institute founded by criminal mastermind Dr. Phineas Darkkon. Although Cadel may be advanced beyond his years, at heart he's a lonely kid.

    Cadel Piggots life has a lot of sadness. But in the end, Cadel takes charge of his destiny. The part I like the best is that Cadel doesn't let the evil he sees around him influence how he feels! I felt like cheering for him. I really loved this book and went right back to audible and bought the sequel. I have recommended this book to my teenage kids. This book is for young and old alike. Oh, and the reader is excellent!

    Griffin has a secret. It's a secret that he's sworn to his parents to keep, and never tell. Griffin is a Jumper: a person who can teleport to any place he has ever been. He knows that the men who killed his parents were looking for him, and he must never let them find him. Griffin has only two goals: to survive, and to kill the people who want him dead. And a jumper bent on revenge is not going to let anything stand in his way.

    What a imaginative book, it truly keeps you "JUMPING"! I just couldnt stop listening. There are alot of sad parts, but "Griffin" keeps on going. I liked the detail of how a boy,on his own, could survive and then thrive using his special abilities. I cant wait for a sequel!
