    Drizzt joins Bruenor on his quest for the fabled dwarven kingdom of Gauntlgrym: ruins said to be rich with ancient treasure and arcane lore. But before they even get close, another drow and dwarf pair stumbles across it first: Jarlaxle and Athrogate. In their search for treasure and magic, Jarlaxle and Athrogate inadvertently set into motion a catastrophe that could spell disaster for the unsuspecting people of the city of Neverwinter - a catastrophe big enough to lure even Jarlaxle into risking his own coin and skin to stop it.

    K. McDowell says: "Pleasantly Surprised."

    Conquest is the next chapter in the great interstellar war between all living creatures and the machines. Star Force must stop the machine invaders once again - but how?

    In the fourth book of the Star Force series, Kyle Riggs has freed Earth from the chains of the Macros - but at what cost? The Macros no longer trust him. He is a mad dog that must be put down - and all Star Force must be stamped out with him. The war expands in this story, and mankind is once again faced with annihilation.

    Michael G. Kurilla says: "Riggs finally stands his ground"
    "Wonderful surprize"

    This is the fourth audiobook in the "Mars Series". Mars is divided, as not one, but two princes and a Jeddak vie for the love of Thuvia of Ptarth. When she is mysteriously kidnapped, treachery threatens to throw Barsoom into a bloody war. Now Cathoris must follow in the footsteps of his famous father, John Carter. He must overcome phantom armies, dangerous spies, and savage beasts in a heroic attempt to rescue not only his true love, but to save and reunite Mars.

    Bushman says: "A Great Series, performed atrociously."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Thuvia, Maid of Mars the most enjoyable?

    I was transfixed by the end of chapter 1. The storey was so wistful I could go, freeing my mind of this world and traveling to barssom with Mr. Carter. The narrator was wonderful with matching the tempo and spirit of the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Thuvia, Maid of Mars?

    I couldn't narrow it down to just one moment, however I will attempt to adequately explain. John Carter has a nak for getting himself into trouble and dragging his friends into it with him. He also has a nak for an amazing escape, get himself and all of his self proclaimed charges back out of trouble plus making everything right in the process.


    Which character – as performed by Gene Engene – was your favorite?

    I think his name is Targ, his ever faithful and trusting friend. Hoo, on his Owen chose follows John Carter through any and every calamity that John Carter is able to forge into being, just from his in ability to control himself when someone is being wronged. Especially if that someone is a beautiful women.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Freedom of a Marsion and human slave.
