    Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive. Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others.... I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others - including John. But so are they....

    Story

    The Story is fantastic, and anybody whose read the Lorien Books can tell you that. Friends coming together against all odds to battle evil and all that wonderful stuff. The Problem with this purchase is that the book is narrated by several people. But they don't separate the voices by character. Whoever's narrating (And they change that by the character's perspective) does all the voices. Which is fine, until the end where a different person starts doing 4's or 9's voice and it's completely different from the rest of the book. Very aggravating.

    After exposing the sinister underground society of students known as the Knights of Charlemagne, Will West stays at the Center over the summer to explore his newly developing physical and mental abilities. Meanwhile, his roommates investigate the Knights' shadowy purpose and discover unsettling information about their own backgrounds. Will and his friends must quickly figure out what's going on and separate friend from foe as they prepare for the coming fight.

    Story

    Alliance was good, but it's like Mark gave us all the meat and no potatoes. Everything that happened was interesting, but hardly anything actually happened. You just learned a lot about the 5 and then the Knights. But it was also like he just wrote off everybody else from book one. I guess the best way to differentiate between book 1 and 2, is that while 1 dragged on at times, but it carried a lot of weight. While 2 was all excitement, but had no weight to it. I hope 3 is a happy medium.

    Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is worse than a blowhard and a bully - he’s ruined countless lives and killed scores of innocents. After centuries, Viking vampire Leif Helgarson is ready to get his vengeance, and he’s asked his friend Atticus O’Sullivan, the last of the Druids, to help take down this Norse nightmare.One survival strategy has worked for Atticus for more than two thousand years: stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. But things are heating up in Atticus’s home base of Tempe, Arizona....

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    Story

    I love the Iron Druid, but this book was lacking from Mr. Hearne. The only reason to read this is to get little facts about the future inserts of the book. Get through it and move on. Trapped is much better!

    A ship under siege. A world on the brink of civil war. A distraught people seeking a new beginning. A battle weary crew that can barely hold it together. Even a legend can use a little help from time to time. The crew of the Aurora, the Karuzari, and the Corinairans must find a way to work together, or else they may all perish.

    Story

    Freedom's Dawn was a return to boring and a drag like the Rings of Haven was. It was Okay at the beginning, drags and makes you angry in the middle, and wins you over yet again at the end. One of the greatest endings which made the pain and anger completely worth it.

    A captain coming into his own. A handful of refugees stranded on board. A possible traitor in their midst. A voyage into the territory of the very enemy that pursues them. Sometimes legends become realities in unexpected ways. It seems that fate has the crew of the Aurora firmly in its clutches.

    Story

    Leg of Cor is a great read. Unlike Rings of Haven which was dull and desperate, LoC takes you back to what Aurora was all about: excitement, friendship, and legends. Nathan Scott makes you want to root for him, and every member of his crew that he loses you feel the pain with him. But Ryk doesn't just make you love Nathan and the crew, he makes you respect them as well. This series is starting to come into a realm of its own. It's no longer a Star Trek copy and is quickly becoming it's own tale.

    "I thought things would change when I found the others. We would stop running. We would fight the Mogadorians. And we would win. But I was wrong. Even though we have come together, we barely escaped from the Mogadorians with our lives. And now we're in hiding, trying to figure out our next move. The six of us are powerful - but we're not yet strong enough to take on their entire army. We haven't discovered the full extent of our Legacies. We haven't learned to work together. And there's still so much that we don't know about the Elders or their plan for us."

    Story

    The story is amazing. Brings everybody together and then leaves you wanting SO MUCH MORE. But the Narration is terrible!!! They break the reading down by whether a male or female instead of by character. It makes for a horrible clash of voices which weren't that good to begin with. I high suggest you read the book on your own. If I could give the performance a 0 stars I would!!!

    A ship stranded halfway across the galaxy. A difficult and lengthy journey home. A homeworld in urgent need of their return. And now they are running out of food. The crew of the Aurora must now trust their new allies in order to survive. But their situation may be far more serious than they imagined. And their actions could have repercussions across the galaxy. Their journey home may just have gotten slightly more complicated.

    Story

    While still a good read, Haven lacked the intrigue, excitement, and pace of Aurora. Everything is a struggle for survival and after a while you become some what bored with the experience. The book also becomes slightly predictable. I would still recommend this book though as certain parts are integral in the rest of the series.

    world recovering from a devastating plague. A brutal enemy threatening invasion. A young man seeking to escape the shadow of his father. A ship manned by a crew of fresh academy graduates. A top-secret experimental propulsion system. A questionable alliance with a mysterious green-eyed woman. What destiny has in store for the crew of the UES Aurora is far greater than any of them could ever imagine. And this is only the beginning....

    Not generally a Sci-Fi fan, but I gave Aurora a chance and found it a surprisingly fun ride. Ryk makes you love every character, then adds a plot that keeps you guessing and intrigued. A constant rush of danger and friendship that never stops.
