    In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

    Laura says: "Child Needs an Editor"
    "Another awesome Jack Reacher book"
    Overall

    I am a fan of Lee Childs/Jack Reacher and have read all the books. Some of them I like some of them I didn't.

    This was my first audio book and I must say I enjoyed it thoroughly! The author and the narrator have done a splendid job. Glad I tried it on audio.

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    Aaron Brown says: "Unique Magic system, good plot twists."
    "Shallow and ridiculous"
    Overall

    Not sure what exactly other readers liked about this book. In fact, I read it to the end just because of the high comments it got. Otherwise, it would have been the first fantasy book I left unfinished in a while.

    It's pretty bad - the plot is absurd and ridiculous, the main character, again a 17 year old kick-ass girl who is repeatedly allowed to do whatever she likes without any substantial consequences in a world where the rest pay dearly for their actions.

    The rest of the characters are simply not there - the usual grown-up people who in fact have no idea what's exactly going on.

    It gets better, the world is original and I was attracted to it, but it didn't overcome the shallowness of the action and the plot.

    For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art---and he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir. For Azoth, survival is precarious, something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums and learned to judge people quickly---and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint. But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name.

    Jake says: "Shockingly good."
    "An exceptional fantasy"
    Overall

    Full of action, interesting plot, original characters ... a must read!

    Kylar Stern has rejected the assassin's life. The Godking's successful coup has left Kylar's master, Durzo, and his best friend, Logan, dead. He is starting over---new city, new friends, and new profession. But when he learns that Logan might actually be alive and in hiding, Kylar is faced with an agonizing choice: will he give up the way of shadows forever and live in peace with his new family, or will he risk everything by taking on the ultimate hit?

    Brooke says: "Not his best, and NOT a great reader!"
    "A good sequel"
    Overall

    A very well written and entertaining story.

    Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has one chance---a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom. In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him. Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends---and perhaps his enemies---he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

    Frank says: "Best of the trilogy"
    "A very good end to an awesome series"
    Overall

    Fantastic end - looking forward to his future works.
